Palace of Cards

The different card games are very well explained. And you can play for free for a very long time. Thumbs up.

But then…

Their prices are downright ridiculous and outrageous. Just for professional players.

Die unterschiedlichen Kartenspiele sind sehr gut erklärt. Und man kann sehr lange kostenlos spielen. Dafür Daumen hoch. aber dann…

Deren Preisvorstellungen sind geradezu lächerlich und fast schon unverschämt. Nur was für professionelle Kartenenthusiasten.

Yes, I don’t recommend it despite completing one of the campaigns (vitals), here is the pros and cons, if you can live with the cons go ahead and buy it, doesnt cost the world.

  • unique races with their individual card lineups

  • there is a learning curve to appreciate

  • I had no problems running it (on my old computer in admin mode)

  • challenging varied enemies

  • 50h playtime if you do both campaigns I’d say

  • it felt a bit like offline Hearthstone with 3D battles, the age shows tho

  • even if you turn off all the gimmick closeups etc, battles take their time

One of the old school classics.

Since the game was developed by Nival (Russian based), western market might not be familiar with the game.

However there are few points why you might be interested to play this game even though it has been 13 years since it was released:

  • Game is Hard. No kidding, even normal difficulty will have you thinking over on what kind of strategy and builds you must use to win every campaing map.

  • Game is played out on a strategic map (similar to HOMM) & tactical battles (collectible card game).

Etherlords II

Etherlords II

-RPG elements are quite light

-Campaign is fairly on the rails

-Actual card-game combat is quite solid and the AI pilots its decks surprisingly well given how dated the graphical presentation of everything is

-Experienced Magic players, especially experienced booster draft players, will find the deck construction somewhat simplistic. Many cards are quite obviously at suboptimal rates or provide effects that are clearly not worth 1 of your precious 16 card slots.

-Many of the enemy decks are quite extreme in their focus, varying wildly from hard aggro to pillow-fort control to voltron suit-ups and most fights are basically puzzles, figuring out the exact mechanics of the enemy deck and making sure you have a defense/solution to resolve it.

I remember playing the demo for this game way back when it was released (and when demos were a foregone conclusion). Now I finally got to play the whole thing and it was just as good as I remember. There is a lot more story and voice acting in this game compared to Etherlords 1 and it’s as bad as I remember, but I like that. Bad voice acting is about the only bad thing in games that is still enjoyable.

It’s taken me more than 40 hours to beat the campaign, because the Etherlords games are slow. There is an option to speed up combat and summoning animations, but I never used that in either games, because I like to take my time when playing a game. The slowness is most felt in the battles, which are wars of attrition, where the one with the most creatures and/or the most HP usually wins. There are, however, plenty of ways to beat the odds and turn the tables, which is this franchise’s greatest strength. It’s a bit boring at first, but once you get more useful cards, you’ve got endless possibilites to experiment with deck builds.

Good game

I am going on a FF spree and it’s thanks to FF8 here. Honestly very unique and interesting game vs the rest of the series. Though you’re either going to enjoy this game’s quirky and complex Draw/card/GF system or you are going to despise it with your entire existence. I like quirky systems, so I didn’t mind it. In fact, I liked it a lot. Triple Triad was honestly the funnest side-game or mini-game that I’ve played in any game.

I found it to be a fun experience, despite its flaws. If magic and GF cut scenes were faster/skipable, I think this game would be ten times better lol.

So this game is tons of fun, I gotta say, it’s fantastic to play with a group of friends because, as always, Uno is great fun. The card packs and new rulesets are also fantastic and really change up the pace of the game and make it even more fun, beyond what normal Uno can provide.

That’s about all it’s got going for it though. The coding of the game itself and the networking are absolutely atrocious. For absolutely no reason, people will drop from games, be incapable of fully loading into games, crash on startup, etc. etc.. Many core features (like calling out Uno) are broken to a degree that makes a potential win into a complete loss. Needless to say, the entire game is pretty much broken somewhere somehow despite the fact that it’s literally just Uno. I have no idea how you screw up Uno this badly, but these developers apparently made that a reality. If it was just one or two of these bugs in isolation, I could put up with it, but the quality of this game makes me feel like unpaid interns created it and that it’s literally just a project for Ubisoft interns to work on that generates them some cash on the side. There’s no care at all for quality put into it, which I mean sure, it can’t be that popular of a game and isn’t a flagship, but it still flagrantly displays it’s made by Ubisoft and is grossly broken. Not that I expect anything else out of Ubisoft, but for god’s sake, it’s just a damn card game, how do you make it so that just to play an online card game it can take 20 minutes of restarting games just to get it to work, only to then have people just disconnect at the start or mid-game for no reason despite them having no connection issues at all on their end?

Skat 3D Premium

Skat 3D Premium

Phew what can I say. Skat either you love it or you hate it. Took me years to get a mediocre Skat player in the analog world. Now I can even play some hands on the pc. I love that you even can use all the weird pub rules in different variations… Seriously who plays 3 Ramsch in a row if noone bids? :) Graphics are ok but you just look at the cards anyways.

So if someone wants to learn one of the weirdest card games out there get this game.

Real player with 7.7 hrs in game

It looks nice and I so want to enjoy Skat 3D, but it could do a much better job of introducing you to the rules through a tutorial. The rules of Skat in Skat 3D are described in the same way as if you tried to learn out of a book. Skat is a game with such utterly obtuse rules that even when you think you have started to understand them and feel like you are winning every hand, there is a rule that says you lose.

Prime World: Defenders

Prime World: Defenders

I am slightly conflicted in recommending this. On one hand, purely from a “tower defense” perspective, the gameplay is pretty solid. Everything works as it should and it is well-designed (nice interface, towers all serve specific purposes, enemy health, waves and routes are clearly indicated, etc). And most importantly, the actual gameplay itself is fun. What brings this down are the nonstandard elements the developers tried to introduce into the standard tower defense formula - specifically, the “card system” (and everything that comes along with it). There’s nothing wrong with the basic idea - tower types are represented by cards that can be collected and leveled up, and you have to pick and choose a subset of cards from your deck before going into a level. Where the problem comes in is obtaining the cards you need you be successful and “leveling up” those cards. First of all, the leveling system is overly confusing and needlessly complicated. Secondly, in order to beat the later levels, you will need specific cards leveled up to adequate levels of strength. The problem with this is that most of the cards you get as rewards are random, so you could go a good long while without (or possibly even never) finding a Lightning Tower card, for example (which I would consider absolutely essential for beating the game). And even if you are lucky enough to get some good towers, the process of leveling them up takes serious time. You basically just need to keep grinding out optional levels to get extra cards that can be used to fuse/evolve other cards. And make no mistake, you are going to be doing some serious grinding. So, depending on your tolerance for grinding levels and ranking up things, that’s how I would recommend you make your decision to buy this or not. Personally, I am the OCD-type who feels the need to level things up and complete stuff, so I forced myself through and eventually got enough cards of high enough strength to power through the main game, as well as the extra hard difficultly that unlocks afterwards. While I did enjoy the game overall, it did take a lot of time and effort to get the most out of it. To me, tower defense shouldn’t be about making towers strong enough to win by brute force. It should be about overcoming the challenges using a set of predefined towers and nothing else except whatever strategy you come up with. The first half of this game can be played along those lines, but once you get to the later levels, you will absolutely hit a wall if you don’t have certain cards leveled up to a certain strength. That’s poor design in my eyes. But even with all that said, I honestly still had fun with this game, as it’s well made and I have a semi-high tolerance for grindy things. If you think you can deal with the grinding issue and like TD games, definitely go for it. Otherwise, you may want to hold off or wait for a huge discount.

Real player with 71.0 hrs in game

The metacritic rating for this game is certainly correct. As someone that likes TDs, likes the art style, atmosphere, and music, I have trouble giving it more than a 6/10 simply due to all the gameplay ruining engine glitches. It probably doesn’t even deserve that. Without the engine glitches, it might be a 7/10 or 8/10 TD.

There’s a good assortment and variety of towers in PWD - nothing that leaps out as being incredibly unique, but they’ve got splash poison, single target poison, splash fire, single target fire, AA poison, etc.; what is unfortunate about the tower system is it comes down to luck whether you actually find all the tower cards or not. Even after playing through the entire game, then grinding another hundred levels and buying as many cards as possible in the store… I still did not unlock every tower. Bummer. Aside from that, some towers are slightly unbalanced. If you find some electric tower cards early and max upgrade them, building nothing but those towers and invis detectors is sufficient for beating all but ~3 levels.

I get why this has mixed reviews but at the price point it’s worth it. This is basically just a digital recreation of your favorite childhood game. Not much more and not much less.

There are a couple small interface issues, like for example sometime a card pops up for a few seconds and before you’ve figured out what the card even says you are being asked to select another player to apply the card to…. now I don’t know if this card is going to take money away from them or pay them money becasue I can’t actually see the card when slecting another player. So the two obvious solutions are to either make you select the card to continue so at least you have a chance to read it or acknowledge it before selecting another player or leave the card visible when selecting another player. But neither is an option here.

cute little game thats nice to play it has a great soundtrack and nice visuals. theres not much in terms of variety for the actual gameplay but the game itself lasts awhile so theres lots to do. Theres not many players so playing online is kind of depressing and playing with the CPU just doesnt feel that fun but the pass and play feature for people irl is actually a great way to play if you want to play with real people. I assume in the future where there are more players that own the game online will improve. The game can get glitchy, sometimes in really bad spots, like the spinner froze for me right at the very end of the game which felt really frustrating but its not frequent enough to be a real issue. The game is nice to play if you can’t decide what else to play or you’re really bored. Also its worth noting that the acheivements are really easy to complete and you can probably get them all perfect in like 6-7 hrs of gameplay so its good if you like getting perfect games or something. Overall a good game and my expectations were definitely exceeded.

Dead Man’s Draw

Dead Man’s Draw

This is very close. Another game I wish I could give a neutral rating.

Its a push your luck card drawing game with each suit triggering a different mechanism and along with your traits you can combine them in to more or less devestating attacks in order to collect cards that bolster your score.

Contrary to some of the reviews Ive seen nothing to suggest that the AI is cheating, it does pull off some last minute nasty moves at times but keeping my cool I can think back to the many times I have done the same thing. How much this actually matters is debateable, if the game makes you feel like it is cheating then whether it is or it isnt, the frustration is always real. I think this will be the biggest sticking point for most people, at first it may not be quite so apparent but as things go on you will see through to the luck component of the game increasingly easily and more and more you will feel robbed by complete chance regardless of how well youve played a hand.

Real player with 82.1 hrs in game

I really enjoyed this game, the rules are really simple to pick up, it’s fun to play, the characters are memorable and consistent in ‘who they are’ with the trait combos they use. The AI is really good and not overly cheaty, there were a couple of times I thought you wouldn’t keep drawing like that or you’d have had to have known that card was there to have carried on or to have played that card, but this didn’t happen often enough to make it a concern. It is incredibly fair the majority of the time.
