The Battle For Wesnoth

Along with the clean and perfect graphics, comes the visualizations. This consists of the battle animations and all that fits along those lines. The first thing that comes to mind is cut-scenes. To my knowledge, there are no 3D or even animated cut scenes except for the ones that are engine-based using the sprites and units. This is not a major drawback since it never takes you out of the scenery of the game, but sometimes it is nice to change things up from time to time especially to give the player a better visual experience. An amazing visual experience is a very vital aspect of any fantasy game. The battle animations are simple and yet very effective. They do the job and are not too fancy. They are simple and, to me, are slightly comical in how the units interact. It makes the overall experience a very enjoyable one at that. The game is simple to see, simple to use, and simple to play and yet still holds true to all aspects of a commercial turn-based strategy game.

Overall with the clean graphics, simple layouts, and amazing character images (might I add, they are most definitely professionally done), the Battle for Wesnoth receives a 9.0 out of 10 for Graphics and Visualizations.

Sounds & Musical Quality

For any game, the sound plays a major role in the overall experience. The sounds immerse you into the realm of which you, as the gamer, are playing in. I for one, love the sounds in the game. The Battle of Wesnoth has the perfect soundtrack to compliment an amazingly visual game. The only downside of sounds and music is the fact that I cannot sample it although you can simply go and download the game now and hear the candy for your ears as you read this review.

The soundtrack will send you into a world you will never want to leave. Alongside the amazing soundtrack is the clean battle sounds. All sounds within the game are clean and contain nothing more than what is required. They have no excessive screaming, violence, or background noise to make for an enjoyable experience even with the speakers on high to hear the music flowing in the background.

For the sound and music quality, the Battle for Wesnoth earns a worthy 9.0 out of 10.
