I don’t normally take too much notice of reviews by reviews that I don’t have much previous experience off instead I will look for reviews by people that I feel have been fair too other games in the past and have a tendency too have similar tastes too my own I actually brought the game off the back of Totalbiskuits WTF assessment of the game found hereApril 19, 2015 at 13:58 #184331
Very nice review by Mezmorki on eXplorminate4x.com
Indeed, the reviewer seems to have played the game and knows what he is talking about!!!April 20, 2015 at 02:10 #184653

The first big gaming site review:
Gamespot 8 out of 10April 23, 2015 at 11:26 #186940
Darn – @ten9 beat me to the Gamespot review. Was a really enjoyable review and the outlook of journalists in regards to Age of Wonders 3: Eternal Lords is looking very good. I am surprised that gamer.no has not yet given one out, being Norway’s biggest online gaming reviewer site.
Blood is needed for realism.

EL review by russian RiotPixels (82%):
“If you are still putting off acquaintance with the Triumph’s project – the time has come to do it”April 29, 2015 at 21:37 #191492
The Eternal Lords expansion received an 8/10 mark from a major Czech gaming website Games.cz.
The reviewer sums up: “Eternal Lords brings along a great deal of new choices between the good and evil, war and peace and between life and… “an afterlife”. Adding whole new content laced with necromancy makes AoW III one of the most appealing TBS on today’s market.”
Well, there is no reason not to support this statement, because it is completely true!May 1, 2015 at 14:55 #192501

A must read this is. Explorminate has produced an excellent article, a reexamination of Age of wonders 3 with its expansions.
It centers around the question: Have the updates and expansions dealt with the initial criticisms?
The game was quite good to begin with, but is is really great now?May 6, 2015 at 19:51 #195195
Nice work looking up all those reviews, specially ten9.
Positive reviews, but how could anyone make a bad review of this game? 🙂May 6, 2015 at 20:14 #195235
I loved that second Explorminate article. And I think it’s great they reexamine games further down the line. There was also a good article on Rome 2 total war post-patches.May 9, 2015 at 12:42 #197862

Videau games review: 8.5 out of 10.
This type of thing always gets me. The reviewer is self admittedly bad at the game, which is fine, reviewers cannot be experts at every game out there.
But then, he says “What I’m saying is that, as it stands, Necromancer is pretty thunderously overpowered.”
If you are bad and know it, why make outrageous statements like this? Newsflash: If necromancers are OP, its not going to be discovered by someone who has played, by the sound of it, 1 or 2 games. Just stick to how much fun you had, or didnt have, or how hard the learning curve is, and leave the balance judgements to people who actually have experience with the game. Im still not an expert after playing for several months, but I know enough to say no class is “thunderously” OP, because if it were, I would be using that class to pwn everyone online.

This one, together with explorminate’s second look, is the most in-depth look at eternal lords I’ve seen until now.
You have to read this one. The reviewer has put more than 100 hours of gameplay in it.

Can someone please explain how Golden Realms, which introduced 1 new race, scores 82 on metacritic (http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/age-of-wonders-iii—golden-realms), but Eternal Lords, which introduced 2 new races and a whole new class, manages only 80 (http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/age-of-wonders-iii—eternal-lords)??November 3, 2017 at 12:25 #258286
Let me just state that Age of Wonders 3 still is one of the (if not THE) greatest games in existence. It is so rich, deep and flexible; Full of choices, full of strategies and full of fun. I love how it is a crossover between Civilization and Heroes of Might & Magic. Me and my friends will keep playing it for years to come.September 20, 2018 at 06:08 #292889
