In the spirit of action-RPGs such as Diablo and Dungeon Siege (and the original SpellForce: The Order of the Dawn), SpellForce 2: Shadow Wars offers fantastic landscapes to explore, monsters to defeat, and character skills to acquire. In the role of the greatest champion in the world of Eo, players lead a band of heroes to do battle with enemy Dark Elf warriors and unholy Shadow beings. To fight well, the player's party must be supported with resources, which are gathered by building and managing real-time strategy-styled bases. The game's single-player campaign boasts over 60 hours of adventure, and the free-form character development system allows players to pick one of nine races within three factions and improve their heroes with over 100 special powers and abilities best suited to their playing styles. Both competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes are available as well, and up to three friends may play a campaign storyline on the Internet. ~ All Game Guide
