Description

SpellForce is a RTS\RPG hybrid game similar to Battle Realms. The storyline is the usual "the fate of the world is in your hands". Unlike Battle Realms, SpellForce gives more focus on the hero. In fact, the player can go into 3rd person view (only for the hero) and play it like hack and slash game. The player can still play it like any other RTS game though. SpellForce features 6 playable races and a highly detailed game engine.

Trivia

One of the NPCs you'll meet has the name Rigour Mortis. The name is very similar to a sign of death called rigor mortis (immobility of a dead body). By the way the NPC is pale-faced.
