    Consider this a one-for-one replacement for Paradox's cancelled Runemaster.

    Not the most unique setting in the world, true. But fuck it, I'm excited!(=

    No recent game does it any justice. I doubt this will either, though.

    God I hope not. Last Expeditions game was way better than that crap called Banner Saga.

    Nah, Banner Saga did everything Expeditions did better in every way possible. Only the exploring part was missing, which was really cool in Expeditions. So suck it.

    LOL?! Turn Based combat was worse in BS. Basically no proper character development system. Resource system was stupid in BS, you could get to 0 resources, everyone would die and the game would continue and act like everyone is not dead.
    And then the so called C&C in BS was pure bullshit, it was a guessing game. Fuck guessing games. And it had 0 exploration, very short game and stupid story.
    It was one of the worst game I played. Only a fairly interesting combat system made it playable for few hours before I uninstalled it.

    I hated the overworld exploration in Expeditions. It was so tedious to get from point A to B and didn't add anything. There wasn't even that much to explore, it was just fucking busywork. Took me a few hours 'exploring' the first Island to realize there is just nothing there at all.

    I'd much rather they just had a map mode with spots of interest like Blackguards or automated movement like Banner Saga. They could combine that with branching paths in order to keep the 'expedition feel'. Tactical combat, atmosphere, CYOA parts were bredy gud, exploration was a chore.

    WTF, there was a lot of places to find outside the first island (which is just a tutorial area). And lots of goodies to get on the way and enemies to fight. I guess it comes down to people that enjoy HOMM system and those that don't

    I found the combat in BS much more thoughtful than in Expeditions. Which makes sense if you think that it has also a multiplayer part which means more balanced combat. Not saying that Expeditions was bad in that aspect, just felt a bit lacking in some points I guess.
    BS had though more interesting setting(for me), characters, story, ART, music

    I did like the exploration part in Expeditions though.

    Expeditions had battlefield setup, it had different battlefields, and different weapons. Also the turn based system was more standard, I didn't like how BS had health and damage as one stat and how less troops you had enemy troops got to act more often. It was so gamey and bullshit.

    A lot of places like what? Little piles of stone that glow white and give you minor xp? On the main island I can think of maybe five places of interest outside of the main story, I don't think that makes the tedious crawling over the overworld worth it. Might as well just scrap that feature and send me to the points of interest right away. Finished this game soley because I liked the combat.

    It was also a bad decision to have no points of interest whatsoever on the tutorial island. I wasted a lot of precious lifetime exploring that one until I realized its pointless.

    Hahahaha BALAAANCEEE
    No seriously tho, it was "balanced" in the board game kind of way.

    And seriously number 2, I liked both games quite a lot, just Banner Saga left me a better...aftertaste or sth
