Is it worth it?
I've never really heard of this series before. What are its strengths and weaknesses, and which one is the best? Etc.

I have just bought it. The spelforce 2 gold worth it, i recommend you that one if you dont want the full collection. The last of the series is pretty meh(just look at the metascore). The game is like a warcraft3 with stronger rpg elements and quest system. I just simply like it. If you like strategy games you wont regret buying this or even the full collection (not guaranted of course).
It also good in multi, but i dont expect to see many people online.

I like it for its RPG part. You have hero(s) with level, inventory and such. And doing things on RTS map. Half game is just with your party, doing quests, some hidden. The other half (not sequently) you command more units in W3 style. You have your own land/location you upgrade and defend while doing mostly linear map-to-map story line. Not bad story line (in SF2gold).

As weakness... it does not have GREAT animations/cutscenes and such people could be used to from starcraft2 and such. UI and narration looks quite average. But RPG part is fun.

I didn't care for it myself. Perhaps it's something wrong with the Gold Edition and the others are totally cool but this game for me was forgettable. Didn't get very far in the story. I really didn't like the voice acting all that much either. The RTS elements are okay but it takes too long to advance through them. Found myself raging at the battles sometimes despite having a high level and large army.

Maybe my standards are high and I'll get to trying another one of the series but this game in particular was like gum that lost its flavor.
= as a person who enjoys sounds and music in games, i would say this has the best so far sound effects compared to other rpg/rts games. archers, love them, sounds so great.
= story is quite interesting, never went into further part of it, cuz in some point it gets linear.
= mechanics arent that hard, very handy ui and fine looking graphics - units look nice for an human eye.
= RPG part.

= gets linear and repettive after some time.
= voice acts.
= no units voice.

In my opinion this game [Spellforce 2 Gold] is worth buying. If u enjoy RTSs and RPGs, u prob will find this game interesting and time-consuming.

SpellForce 2 Gold Edition contains SpellForce 2 and it's expansion Dragon Storm. Faith in Destiny is a stand-alone expansion.

The game SPELLFORCE 2: SHADOW WARS & SPELLFORCE 2: DRAGON STORM are on sale from gog.com for $3.99 each- along with a host of other nordic titles for the next 15 hours.

If it doesn't run on "Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8)" you can get your money back- unlike the rest of the downloadable gaming universe. The gog.com version is the most compatible versus steams version which lists the games compatibility as follows "OS: Windows XP/2000/Vista 32 Bit".

I cannot get my steam version to work- but if you get the 2 above titles on gog.com (spellforce 2 gold includes both titles) to work- which you will have 30 days to get your money back if it doesn't- then I think it is worth it. My assertion is based on reviews- of course since I cannot get my unsupported steam version to work; my fault however- window's 7 is only supported on the gog.com version: not steam's version.
