Taken as a complete experience, I enjoyed Aralon: Forge And Flame enough that I made my way through the game in only a few sessions. I can’t say I was completely satisfied in the end, but I had a lot of fun along the way, more than you might expect from my critical breakdown of the game’s various working parts. That’s the way it usually is with this kind of game, though, isn’t it? If you can overlook some flaws that have persisted through this whole line of games from Crescent Moon, you’ll probably enjoy this return to Aralon quite a bit. On the other hand, if you weren’t wowed by their previous efforts, you’ll likely be even less wowed with this game. Forge And Flame is quite good, especially considering its scope, but it’s not quite great.
