This game is really fun, however there are some missions in the main campaigns that NEED rebalanced. The last mission for the Dracul is ridiculous! there isn't enough time or blood income to survive, and the whole time limit rule for that mission is stupid and needs taken out! Also this is supposed to be the last mission so why do I have to build EVERYTHING UP AGAIN!? I should instantly have access to tier 3 units and all the legacy points should already be unlocked! Developers if you are reading this PLEASE! rebalance the missions and make these changes!!! Also you should add the human factions with their human units to the skirmish mode, that would make more sense if players (like me) want to practice fighting. I don't know why the humans aren't in there already?

You need to understand why I like this game.
I love vampire universes and Diablo style graphics, which I think this game has a hint of, so the visuals are right up my alley.
It is because it is enjoyable to play.
It is because it has great ambience and good graphical design.
It has a decent enough story, as such things go; it is not great, but I found it engaging.
It is not because it is a great game. It has flaws in AI, in faction balance, in interface, but it is stable and reasonably bug-free.
If you like the style of game, and the subject matter, and doesn't demand absolute perfection, then this is a game you will get many hours and even days of enjoyment out of - I did. But it's not for everyone.
Overall I enjoyed this game,
the only problem: the Devs abandoned the game shortly after it was released.
It appears we will not get any new content or patches to fix bugs or other balancing issues. Too bad really, the game had potential.

Immortal Realms kinda reminds me of those fringe early 2000's RTS games that were kinda great but kinda janky but also usually possessed some real charm to them. There was something that made you recommend them to others but most people you knew had never heard of them, games like Battle Realms, War of the Ring or Empire Earth.
Immortal Empires reminds me of them with its clumsy in engine cut scenes, its hammy but not out of place voice acting and a campaign that has heart but not a lot of depth.
With that being said I wouldn’t recommend Immortal Empires over those latter games simply because the game isn’t as fleshed out as those others.
The campaign is short, the skirmish mode is alright, the combat card system is cool but simple. However what this Vampire themed game is really missing is an amazing soundtrack, something sorley needed to immerse you in a gothic and or Vampire setting, a complete missed opportunity IMO.
In fact id only really recommend this game if you're an edgy Night Lord or Vampire fan in some way. If you liked the Vampire Counts in Warhammer for example this may be a very light/fun diversion for you.
If you get it in a sale it is a light, bug free, artistically fun, fun creatures of the night RTS game

Like others have said: unfinished game (also abandoned), but promising. Even if you have an unstoppable army and 1000 moves on it, a single game would still take you WELL OVER 1 HOUR! Ideal scenarios aside, the battles are long drawn out and economy building feels kinda slow and weird. 6/10 for the concept and the finished parts.

I first attempted to play this on PS4 but as i was on the second to last campaign it froze and when i tried to reboot all my saves were gone. It took me a year before trying to play again and this time I purchased it on the computer but I feel ripped off because my ps4 version I did not want to play and have it happen to me again so I paid for this game twice. That being said: the game itself I enjoyed very much. The few things I really really hate are the limited amount of turns you have to complete it on some of the campaigns, in my opinion this makes the game feel rushed and goes by to fast. It was not difficult meeting the turn base campaigns but it did make the game seemed to rushed when that is added. The other aspect I did not enjoy was the campaign when the undead kept appearing because that also makes a sense of urgency to finish the campaign and I like to take time to play games and enjoy them. I do like the aspect of cards in the game, it is a nice combination with strategy play. It is a good casual player game.

I have just finished last campaing - you can check my game bagdes (I stared playing on other account earlier).
50 turns timer to finish last map? I finished easy in 24th round.
The game is great! I love this darky climat. Why so many negatives review?
Mechanics is quite simple yet very satisfactory.
I am not great strategy game player but can tell one thing:
This game is not hard like others are telling you - all you need is to focus on the battles!
Do not use autocombat on early game then with well ballanced army 95% battles = no single unit lost.
The problem AI attacks with many armies? GREAT! After each battle my old units and hero are more and more experienced and stronger.

great homm game 8/10.
cool graphics and narrative (very brief though)
sadly devs abandoned it - it seems like they were planning to add more content and polish after release, but did a single dlc with 2 new lords and that is it.
I want more lvl3 items and more lords - in sandbox there is only one lord model per clan!!!
All Moroia lords are ranged witches - like why cannot I have lord Automaton or Gargoyle - like the ones I fought against in Campaign?
