How is this game compared to the first?
Hey guys i remember when spellforce 1 first came out i played it to death and loved it. A couple of months back i got platinum addtion and while the nostalgia was good for a while the game felt too slow and each map felt like an eternity to complete, is the second's rts portions as slow as the first and does it improve on the rpg/rts formula?

Spellforce 2 is way better than the first one in a LOT of aspects... If you like Spellforce 1, you will LOVE the 2nd one! For sure
I recommend see the reviews in metracritic

it improved a lot, for example there is no afk grind anymore.

But it made the char development more simple and you only get spells by leveling up skills.

I prefered first one myself. While second one has some aspects improved(no more 20 min running from one side of the map to the other), somewhat worse(to me anyways) UI and graphic bugs make it worse(not to mention simplification of skill system... mehhh)... Still good game though, well worth discounted price :)

better rpg customization in the first spellforce (incl. addons). But i liked spellforce two better, because of the pace of the story and tasks- i experianced them a bit more "packed". and not endless walking around. less races and buildings in spellforce two ...
one of the best intros has spellforce one - the battle of the mages.
UI, pace and storydriven, playtime are better in spellforce2- better rpg customization in the first spellforce. Grafics are very well done.

The one thing that really irks me is that you CANNOT import your character from the main campaign into the expansion pack. It's utter ♥♥♥♥♥♥!t!!!

couldnt have said it better. I liked the complexity and openness of the first.
