For PC fans of the genre and the franchise, the sci-fi/fantasy setting is well-executed and strong enough to make the series feel new again.

Alas, if you’re coming to Age of Wonders: Planetfall for a brand new angle on games you’ve played before, then you’ve come to the wrong place. It’s novel to see several different recognizable mechanics blended into one genre soup. The final product isn’t better than the sum of its parts, though. It makes the 4X a faster game to play, but not a better one, ultimately.

It might be too expansive for its own good, but for players who can look past that and place themselves in the shoes as a commander leading a space-faring faction to salvation there's no better 4X title out there. Age Of Wonders: Planetfall is a success for Triumph Studios, proving the developer can deliver on proper world-building to take their acclaimed series to the vast reaches of space.

Age Of Wonders: Planetfall isn’t short of flaws but it isn’t short of ambition either. It takes on far too much at once, but if you’re willing to compensate for its failings it’s surprisingly easy to have fun with. You can argue that it’s not the player’s job to make up for a game’s faults and that’s true, but if you put in that extra bit of effort you might just find yourself falling for the game anyway.

The science fiction setting puts a compelling new spin on Age of Wonders: Planetfall, with a lengthy single player campaign and half a dozen contrasting factions to see rise from the ashes of the Star Union. There's some niggles I have on console, but this is easy to recommend if you're hankering for a new 4X strategy game.

I was surprised by Planetfall, lest of all because I was never a big fan of Age of Wonders – not because it was bad, but because it never grabbed me. This entry was different, however, with the focus on 4X expansion and the draw of close-range squad engagements with ranged weapons, bombardments, and customisable heroes was enough to get me invested, and was put together well enough to ignore most of the flaws in the squad combat system.

All in all, Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a great addition to the series. It offers a lot of depth, if not a little too much at times, and is a reasonably fast experience in terms of expansion. The battles are exciting and make you want to play them. This may put off slower-paced strategy lovers, but if you're a fan of the genre, it's certainly a game to look further into.

Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a game on an epic scale in every sense of the word. Both a world-building strategy sim and a turn-based tactical RPG, Planetfall offers a wealth of content to keep players engaged for a long time to come. While some initial commitment is needed to get past the learning curve, playing becomes smooth and intuitive within a couple of hours. Armchair generals with a penchant for lasers, robots and mysterious planets will find plenty to enjoy in this tremendously deep title.
Ángel AlmansaAug 05, 2019
Un buen formato que mezcla de manera óptima dos modos de estrategia diferentes, pero que a su vez tiene demasiada información que procesar y requiere tiempo para adaptarse, con una campaña algo más repetitiva de lo que gustaría.
Marcel KleffmannAug 15, 2019
Age of Wonders: Planetfall ist ein gutes 4X-Strategiespiel mit Taktikschlachten und kreativen Fraktionen. Es könnte aber abseits der Kriegsführung mehr bieten.
Martin DeppeAug 14, 2019
Bewährtes Age-of-Wonders-Spielprinzip mit überschaubaren Neuerungen. Solide Kämpfe, motivierendes Questsystem, schwache Wirtschaft.
Daniele SpeltaAug 05, 2019
Age of Wonders: Planetfall è un 4X decisamente solido, che nel proporre un’ambientazione agli antipodi rispetto allo standard della serie mantiene comunque intatto il buon feeling dei precedenti capitoli. In questa transizione sono state implementate numerose migliorie, figlie nella nuova collaborazione con Paradox Interactive – come per la diplomazia – ma frutto anche di Triumph Studios stessa, capace di creare una fase tattica decisamente appagante e ricca.
Gian Filippo SabaAug 05, 2019
Age of Wonders: Planetfall non è decisamente adatto a tutti. Se già di base per apprezzare un titolo del genere è necessario fare appello spesso a tutta la propria pazienza e consumare le proprie risorse mentali ai giocatori nostrani è chiesto, purtroppo, davvero tanto di più. La totale assenza di localizzazione per l’Italia fa sì che ancora meno persone possano provare l’ebrezza di creare dal nulla un impero e dominare l’universo.

Перед нами достойный представитель жанра 4X. Есть один простой способ проверить то, понравится вам игра или нет: если вы сейчас задались вопросом, а что такое «4X», значит шансы проникнуться игрой невелики. Потому что Age Of Wonders: Planetfall очень нишевая. К ней нужно готовиться, как к экзамену. Но как только планку удастся преодолеть, перед вами откроется огромная песочница. Вот тогда становится реально интересно. Жаль только, что мало кто дойдёт до этого момента.

Age of Wonders нисколько не потеряла от того, что сменила сеттинг, скорее приобрела — серию давно пора было пересобрать. И потому Planetfall — отличный вариант для всех поклонников стратегий, особенно сейчас, во время затишья и в жанре, и в играх вообще.

Age of Wonders: Planetfall jest też doskonałym przykładem tego, że przeżywamy dziś nową złotą erę gier strategicznych. To kolejny tytuł, przy którym fani tego typu rozrywki będą się wyśmienicie bawić. Nawet wspomnianych kilka drobnych potknięć nie psuje ogólnego wrażenia. Jestem pewien, że produkcja ta na stałe wyląduje na mojej półce i wielokrotnie będę do niej wracać. Muszę Was jednak ostrzec, że galaktyczny Wiek Cudów bezlitośnie pożre zapasy Waszego wolnego czasu.

Age of Wonders: Planetfall یک اثر استراتژی به‌شدت سرگرم‌کننده‌ است که شما را ساعت‌ها مشغول خودش می‌سازد. شاید در ابتدا پیچیدگی بازی مخاطبی که کمتر با ژانر آشناست را کمی سردرگم کند اما مبارزات هیجان‌انگیز و تاکتیکی بازی که چندان ناآشنا هم نیستند، می‌توانند جبران مافات کنند. Planetfall با مضمونی علمی‌ تخیلی تحولی برای سری محسوب می‌شود و خوشبختانه توانسته این علمی ‌تخیلی بودن داستان را به‌خوبی در بازی عملی کند و تجربه درخوری را برای مخاطبش رقم زند.

Age of Wonders: Planetfall síce nahradila fantasy prostredie futuristickými vesmírnymi výbojmi, ale sérii to neuškodilo. Práve naopak, ukázalo ju to v trochu inom svetle a potvrdila, že jej princípy s určitými úpravami dobre fungujú a platia aj na mimozemšťanov, vesmírnu pechotu a bojové stroje. Jednoznačne jedna z najlepších ťahových stratégií súčasnosti mnohých fanúšikov osloví. Má štýl, je dostatočne komplexná, ale nie priveľmi zložitá (čo ale niektorí môžu vnímať skôr ako negatívum), zručne kombinuje manažment s taktickými bojmi a predovšetkým pobaví.
