Well, I must say that I didnt expect that the game would be so great. But it is. Its the best Real Time Strategy game I have ever played.
Battle For Middle-earth and Warcraft 3 are bad games compared to SpellForce.
But SpellForce isnt an ordinary RTS game. It offers some RPG features. For example you can create & skill your main character and you can also loot items and gain experience points.
If you play it for the first time you will see that the graphics are awesome. There is no other RTS game with the visual power as SpellForce has. Then there is the sound. Its brilliant. The sound creates a great fantasy atmosphere. The controls offer some innovations. There is the so-called Click & Fight system where you can control your units easily.
The Platinum Edition contains also the 2 Addons and at all it offers an average playtime of 150 hours.
In a few words: SpellForce is a must have for every RTS and RPG gamer out there.

Pleasantly suprised with this game, it's an excellent mix of RPG, RTS elements. When one phase of play starts to get boring, I find it switched to the other. Graphics are great, music is great, and the intro movie blew me away! Had a problem with both cd keys supplied in the box, they both did not work! Emailed Aspyr tech support about it and they provided me with a new key the next day with apologies. Top notch tech support!

It appears that someone is using automated reviews - could that be an agent of the company (Aspyr Media??)- The 2 reviews here are word for word identical - and, coincidentally, match, word-for-word, a review on the Amazon.com site as well. No mention of the STARTFORCE problem that is reputed to adversely affect your ability to use your CD/DVD burner and open your system up to security threats.

HASH(0xa2c548ac) out of 5 stars Platinum Edition Does Not Work! Dec 8 2005
By Star54 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This review is for the North Amercian version of Spellforce Platinum. Not for the game itself. I have Spellforce Gold and also the expansion Shadow of the Pheonix and both are great games. Would give them 4 stars, only 4 as the dialog is pretty lame and could have been better, but otherwise very nice game.

The Platinum Edition for the US does not work. It says you have a temp key expired and stops the game right there. You cannot play, period. Has to do with copyright protection, as usual. They put out a "fix", they call it a "small fix", which is a new exe file and you are supposed to replace your exe with this new one.

Guess what? It does not work. In fact the game crashed my husbands computer so badly he is having to reformat. My daughter wrote me that she cannot play it either, didn't crash her computer, just the fix does not work and won't let you play.

DO NOT BUY THIS PLATINUM EDITION! Even as cheap as it is, its not worth even a dollar if you can't get past the key problem. If you want to play Spellforce then pay the extra and get the Gold Edition which has 2 of them, and then the expansion. Probably $20 for each, but they play fine and nothing about keys in there. Out of the box, onto your computer and playing.

So far at their forum no one seems to be coming up with a workable fix, the other editions in Europe are fine, seems to just be the NA version and apparently we aren't a priority for getting the game around the temp key expired issue.

Hopes this keeps someone from buying the Platinum. If you do buy it be warned, do NOT install the patch that is out there, its for the GOLD Edition only, the Platinum has all the current patches, all you need is their fix. Which again, does not work.

HASH(0xa2bdb84c) out of 5 stars You have to install the CORRECT patch for US Dec 20 2005
By Eric Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
I agree with the folks here that it is insanely frustrating getting a game and not being able to play.

(...)

The patch contains an executable which you will use to replace the one already installed in the game's folder. Here's where most people have problems. You HAVE to extract the file from the patch. Unfortunately, most people save the patch, open it, then copy the .exe file right there. If the file looks like a blue-edged square window, it has not been extracted - it's still a compressed file. You have to click on extract, then the file will look like a spellforce picture icon. That's what you need to copy and replace. After walking MANY people through this process (after finally getting it myself, hehe), it works like a charm.

Once you finally go through the hassle of getting the game to work, it really is a ton of fun. A great mix between RTS and RPG. I like the fact that not every single area is always "build up, destroy, build up destroy." There are a lot of areas that play more like Sacred, than an RTS. Some people may not like that, but since I'm not a big RTS, it breaks things up just enough to make for a very fun game.

Hope this helps :)

HASH(0xa2bdb918) out of 5 stars How to get it to work March 17 2006
By C. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
I really enjoy this game. My friends and I link up on the lan and do some multi player co-op battles and have a blast. Few bugs that are little annoying but workable.

If you buy this game soon as you install, you wil lget a 1217 error cd key is bad yada yada..

goto aspy media/support/spellforce top clicky.. 1217 error cd key invalid error on the page click download the patch.. overwrite the bad exe with a less buggy one and play. note this patch is about 13 megs and on a dial-up gonna take you sometime.

Gl hope this helps, for 20 bucks this game should keep you highly entertained for days, If you like age empires, and games of that sort this is for you.

HASH(0xa2bdbd08) out of 5 stars SpellForce Platinum is fun Dec 9 2005
By Jack Malone - Published on Amazon.com
When I bought this game in 2004 I wasnt very impressed. It was called The Order of Dawn - the graphics, the sound and the controls were fantastic but the mission design was boring. I wanted to try the addons but they were never released in the US. So I already forgot about this game. Then I saw this Platinum Edition of SpellForce. 20 Dollars isnt that much and so I bought it. I started with the Phoenix campaign and I had great fun. It has now smooth gameplay and exciting missions. I think this game is a must for every Real-Time-Strategy and Role-Play-Game fan.

A friend of mine who bought it as well expired start problems but the support is very helpful and so the start problems were fixed with a small fix.

I am really looking forward to SpellForce 2 and hope it becomes more popular here in the US.
