Clash of Heroes Post Mortem

I just finished the Clash of Heroes single player campaign and thought I'd reiterate how much fun it was.  A tactical RPG puzzle game isn't something you come across every day and this one held me captive most nights for the past few weeks.

On top of what I mentioned in my initial impressions there were also a ton of battles with interesting win conditions.  If I ever felt like I was close to getting bored, one of these odd battles would pop up and re-engage me.  Switching between 5 main characters helped keep things fresh too.

In the end, Clash of Heroes took me 30 hours to beat and provided me with weeks of entertainment for only 15 dollars.  And there's still a whole multiplayer aspect that I haven't touch yet.

I liked this game a lot and now it's put me in the mood for something else tactical.  I want something slow-paced.  Maybe a turn based battle system of some kind.  I'm in the mood for more thoughtful decisions and less twitch action.  Please leave any suggestions you may have in the comments.


  1. Klepsacovic and I have been tinkering with Frozen Synapse. It's a neat little tactical game... even if it has a bit of a steep learning curve. It's turn-based, though each turn is a little window of time where each team moves in "real time" for a couple of seconds. The game waits for you to "commit" your proposed moves, though, so there's plenty of time to think and outguess the opponent.

    I'm actually more fond of Final Fantasy Tactics (all three, though the third is my favorite) and Disgaea for turn-based strategy, though there are other gems like Panzer Tactics and even "lite" tactics games like Band of Bugs. (I worked on that last one... it's not as deep as I'd like, but it's still good as a lighter tactics game).

    I'd also be remiss not to point out X-Com again, but that's digging deeper in the retro well. ;)

    Thanks for writing on this Clash of Heroes, by the way. I've been meaning to check it out, and you've bumped it up my list.

  2. I've been playing Frozen Synapse off and on too. I'm liking it, but the learning curve is hard to get over.

    I loved Final Fantasy Tactics and Disgaea. I've beaten both FF Tactics Advance games, but I noticed they just announced FFT (the original) is being brought to the ipod touch. I'll have to keep my eye on that one.

    I've never played X-Com before... time to look that one up.

    Thanks for the suggestions!
