Grafics are garbage
The game looks very weird an I now know the reason why: It's because they didnt implement any good shadows.

I wonder why. In 4x games the grafics dont really matter, but in this particular game, the world actually looks SO bad, that it comes to the point where it puts a burden on the immersion.

Also, everything is way too gloomy.

you need to play Dominions 3. And don't come back until you understand why that game is awesome.

The game is GalCiv with a Fantasy theme. In my eyes, that's okay, if you somehow manage to like the StarBase / Outpost crap.

Nevertheless, the grafics can give you a serious depression.

I thought about getting it even if the graphics aren't that up to date. I've played pleanty of highly detailed games, and still get fun out of simple graphic games like Torchlight 2. Afterall, if you look at it as a artistic style rather than realism quality. It also is a colorful game, which is a plus. Looks kind of like a combo of Spellforce and LOTR Battle for Middle Earth 2 visually. What I dont understand is why your topic is about graphics but in your latest comment it seems your main concern is that its a galactic civ style game, and is it really lke that game? doesn't look that way to me..
BTW people still enjoy Nintendo 2D graphics these days. Its not a rule for games to all look the same.

GalCiv didn't have controlled tactical battles (that's hard to do with a TBS space game - might work with real-time). It also didn't have expanding cities (expanding into tiles). And finally, it didn't have quests. Or champions (which is almost not worth mentioning, but they can be fun in their own right).

So... yeah. People like this, and they don't care about the graphics. Insensitive clods! :) Sorry about that.

At least there's no horrible voice acting (as there is in Sins of a Solar Empire) - that was soo so bad.

Hehe. Basically you are right, even if you dont need to be the bestest supergenius in the world to win Fallen Enchantress. Massing some units at the right time usually does the trick, right? Just like in GalCiv. The game is okay, I dont want to complain about it in terms of gameplay. If you need some easy-peasy 4x game, you can buy this and it will be fine.

But this thread exists to express my dissatisfaction with the grafics. They could have done at least some average looking cheap grafics and they could have avoided the pure uglyness. Adding some shadows would have been a good first step.

I rather like this more colorful stuff then the dull dirtiness that most games have these days, serioesly the same color scheme in almost every game just gets annoying. its meant to be a high fantasy setting , I would like the art and graphics to represent that as well, and here they are, representing it vary well.

They added shadows in LH. Frogboy talks about it here:

He claims shadows are difficult. I guess if you're not programming in a decent game engine... Might explain why their games crash so much too.

also says shadows are a work in progress. People forget the game is still in beta so stop complaining and start helping.
