The Dwarves is a fantasy role-playing game with a strong story and tactically challenging real-time battles. 15 playable heroes, each with individual skills, are to be deployed cleverly. Take on superior numbers of orcs, ogres, älfs, bögnilim, zombies, dark mages and many more foes, to give them the low-down. Based on the bestselling novel “The Dwarves” by Markus Heitz you'll experience a fascinating tale revolving around the coolest fantasy race ever: The Dwarves! Tactical real-time battles: You're fighting hundreds of foes with just a handfull of heroes. You can pause anytime to tactically plan the next smart move. Crowd Combat: All creatures on the battlefield are rendered with physical complexity – that's why the battles feel especially dynamic and “real”, and enabling a lot of tactical finesse. Captivating story: Join the dwarf Tungdil on his adventurous journey across Girdlegard. Explore the world: Uncover secrets, learn more about the game world and its inhabitants, and solve optional puzzles. Delve into the world map: Girdlegard ranges from snow-covered summits to shimmering deserts. You can move freely on the world map, meet numerous characters, and experience adventures. But beware: A lot of your actions on the world map have far-reaching consequences!
Epic beginning and boring 0815 ending.
The start of the game takes you right into the story but is extremely slowing down towards the end. The ending seems too rushed and not well thought out. In addition, the cutscenes lack an epic conclusion... to the story.
Soundtrack, synchronisation are of the finest, even the German voices don't need to hide. Graphic moves between AHA moments and Pooh Deifeln!
replay value is zero. Playful freedoms are only available as texts. Here the pros and cons:
Pro: Coherent atmosphere
Very good synchronisation
Zero replay value
Monotonous main story
Fight, level, equipment and travel system are from the day before yesterday and boring.
17, 5 hours of playtime are unfortunately more than meagre. I even had a 2-week break with me
and watched every corner of the game!
When Steam would offer the possibility to evaluate a game neutrally or average then I would do that in the case for The Dwarves. The game is entertaining but not a thriller!
For boredom or on sale I can still recommend it
