HomeLan Fed has put together a preview of SpellForce: The Order of Dawn, Phenomic's RPG/RTS hybrid. Here's a taste:
As we said in the beginning of this preview, mixing up game genres can be tricky and it remains to be seen if SpellForce's combo of RTS and RPG game styles will appeal to a PC gaming audience. Based on our playtime with the near final US version, we found that the game did take a little getting used to but that we slowly got to enjoy it. We will soon see if the PC game audience will get used to the learning curve. US publisher Encore plans to release SpellForce to stores in early February.
