Fantasy General 2 is steadily trudging along, bringing us into more and more battles for the land of Keldonia. But this time, we’re not picking over the bones of the Empire. No, this time, we’re going where it’s warmer and… wetter? Yes, the Fantasy General 2: Evolution DLC finally puts in command of lizardmen.
Back when I was a kid, new campaigns for games came with these things called “expansion packs.” Granted, that concept has been absorbed by DLCs, which encompass any and all additional content that’s delivered outside of patches. And as a kid, I missed out on the original Fantasy General. I made up for that by playing Fantasy General II. Empire in Flames DLC is a great addition to the main game.
From the moment I heard of Fantasy General II, I thought of it as the sequel to Fantasy Wars. It was not. Its generic name stems from the fact that its 1996 predecessor was built on the structure of Panzer General. But unlike Panzer General and its countless clones, Fantasy General II is enjoyable.
