The music is the same for each mission. Some missions took me about an hour to get through and the music just went on in a loop. Then I’d move onto the next mission and the music was exactly the same. It wasn’t bad and fit the plot pretty well, but certainly got monotonous after a while. Overall, Exorder is a pretty good turn-based strategy game. If you enjoy this kind of genre, this wouldn’t be a bad one to try.
At a base level, what is present in Exorder is good. However, some frustrations take away from what could be an otherwise pretty good or even great game. SRPGs should be about planning out your next move and not figuring out how to fix your unit going to the wrong place because of the twitchy “snap” movement as you pressed A.
The game has a robust multiplayer implementation. While I could not find anyone to matchmake against we hear that in Multiplayer Mode you can choose between online matchmaking, against players of similar skill levels, or partake in a casual skirmish. You can also create a custom multiplayer game of up to 4 players, either offline or online. The game supposedly has global leaderboard support as well.
Exorder had the potential to be great, but its technical difficulties, abysmal voice acting and frustrating gameplay make for a disappointing experience. While the core campaign requires plenty of skill and a solid strategy to beat, giving the game plenty of replayability, the unforgiving AI and overall poor design mean that you are more inclined to put the game down than try again. If you like fantasy and strategy titles, Exorder is worth a try, but only if you have copious amounts of patience.
The real problems, however, begin when you finally make the leap to the core of it all, the Skirmish battles - whether against the CPU or a fellow human being - and that is simply how... barebones this is. There are no races, hero units, and, generally, unique mechanics to make the "fun" last a little longer. In the end, Exorder does so little, that even similar strategy games from the early '90s feel more complete than this.
