From the original, buggy release of War Of Magic, the universe of Elemental has seen some turmoil. Seemingly rescued with a critically acclaimed new release of Fallen Enchantress last Fall, things are certainly looking brighter. Not satisfied with the myriad of accolades and acclaim Fallen Enchantress has garnered, Stardock has looked deep into their crystal ball and overhauled the game.

Does it stack up to the original, or is this new entry as mindless as the zombies in the game?
