Age of Wonders: Planetfall scores – our roundup of the critics

Age of Wonders: Planetfall lands on PC and console tomorrow, strategy publisher Paradox Interactive’s foray into 4X sci-fi. But before you make it planet-side yourself, it’s time to see what the critics thought of the game.

In our own Age of Wonders: Planetfall review, Phil said that “there’s a lot to love here, but it’s not necessarily a case of love at first sight. The depth and complexity baked into Planetfall are definite boons, but even for regular 4X players its menus, research trees, unit types and resource properties take a long time to become fluent in. depth and complexity baked into Planetfall are definite boons, but even for regular 4X players its menus, research trees, unit types and resource properties take a long time to become fluent in.”

That praise seems to have been matched elsewhere. At time of writing, Age of Wonders: Planetfall boasts a score of 84 on Opencritic, rising to an ever-so-slightly higher score of 85 on Metacritic.

Without further ado, let’s check out some of those critics’ scores:

That’s a pretty uniform set of scores, and all of them impressively positive. It sounds as though there’s a lot to uncover, and that that can make the early game a little overwhelming, but once the game settles down into the mid to late-game, Planetfall evolves into an excellent strategy game.
