[Game on] Spellforce 2

What is Spellforce 2?
Spellforce 2 is an RTS/RPG hybrid done mostly right. With an epic tale full of betrayls, elves, orcs, humans, and..Wait - This sounds a lot like every other Fantasy game in existance. Except this is what Warcraft 3 should have been! Your characters have a diablo like skill tree which splits into combat and magic, various slots for equipment, and lots of large open maps to explore and pillage. Remember those old Starcraft RPG's on battle.net back in the day? This is what Spellforce is - Except prettier. It's also 7.50 on steam this weekend, and it includes the expansion.

I've invested four to five hours into the game since yesterday, and I've had a good time with the single player. I've been told the multi-player is amazing, and I'm inviting everyone here with a few dollars in your pocket to give this game a whirl (Or those who already have it can join in!) I've even set up a Hamachi network for everyone to join (The internet service for the game is gone, so it's LAN only now.)

Now, I know not everyone is going to just jump into the game without a few pretties and a video or two showing what all the fuss is about.

Theme song

    Wow, the game designers must have spent a fortune to get the right for that Evanescence song.

    Oh....wait....

    It's a great game. I never got around to playing the expansion much, but I might be up for a few games at some point, if I can find my cd's.

    Usually I think pretty hard about my game purchases but anything around 5$ on steam is impulse buy territory for me.

    Will this game allow me to drown my sorrows over not being in the Starcraft 2 beta (i.e iz it gud?)

    I was pretty interested until I heard that Evanescence song.

    Currently playing this as well, I'm at the King's castle in the campaign right now. The thing that's bugging me most atm is that it's more RTS than I had hoped for. Still, fun game.

    Huh, maybe I'll skip the first and go to the second, because I enjoy the RTS part, but there hasn't been a lot of it.
