About this game

Developer: GSC Game World
Content Rating: Teen


A realtime strategy game where six great races are on the verge of terrible conflict, and you are the hero who will decide whether this war brings greatness to the land or devastation to this world. Beginning with a rather ordinary man, you shall walk your path, gathering your followers around, coming through treachery, death of friends and leaving new hope behind. Search for magical artifacts, treasures and lost attainments in ancient ruins and dangerous dungeons. Growing stronger, you will build bases were you can train your troops and eliminate foes in the area. As one of 18 characters, your hero will grow both by experience points and by choices he has made as the army amasses. Lead your troops well as you build up to large-scale combat encompassing up to 64,000 units on the battlefield.

Heroes of Annihilated Empires is a forgettable experience all the way through. While we really like Elhant's attitude, it's the only thing that stands out as unique in this game. That's a shame because the developers were on to something with the idea of combining modern units with those of the typical medieval fantasy setting. Instead of hitting the ground running with this idea, the developers have decided to hold off.

There's still something strangely compelling about Heroes of Annihilated Empires, with its throngs of units and an original take on the RPG/RTS mixture. But as good as it wants to be, it's crippled by its terrible artificial intelligence, poor multiplayer options, and half-baked design and story elements that make the game feel unfinished.

Still, despite its shortcomings, we’re hopeful that the series will redeem itself in its future titles by showing off the sci-fi/fantasy crossover goodies hinted at in HoAE. But with its clumsy combat, dim AI and generic plot, HoAE fails to add anything new to the already crowded fantasy based RTS genre.
