View Full Version : Order of war missing two critical things for me

I like the gameplay of Order of War.

I tried the demo.

However, the game was missing a Replay function.

For me, I learn the game by watching replays.

Second, the game lacks a handicap feature.

I like to play against other members of my family. However, to introduce them to the game requires me giving them a handicap, as at a particular time there will be differences in skill (see, for example, the handicap system in Age of Empires III). Also, at a later point, one member of family gets too good, and he gives me a handicap, so we both enjoy the game.

Without these two features, I would not buy the game.

Sadly, in recent years games are coming with fewer features than in prior years. Age of Empires series, for example, had great handicapping and great replay. As a matter of fact, go all the way back to the original Dark Reign RTS, which has a fantastic set of feature options, most of which are no longer available recent games.

The cinematic viewing mode is kinda cool, so i thought i'm gonna watch the entire match using cinematic mode after the game and then i realize there's no save replay button :(
