Cassia, once of the ruling class finds herself cast down in to the labyrinth beneath the city where she spends many long years trying to hold on to her sanity through venomous spider bites and the taunts of her gaoler. Disfigured, mad, but undoubtedly alive she eventually finds her way out and begins to plot her revenge.

She was born to rule, it is all that she knows and all that she remembers from before her fall and so her goal is to gather forces and take the country from those that betrayed her. So - good solid, old fashioned revenge on a national scale!

The meat of the game is hexagon tile based, turn-based combat. You begin by placing your assets - characters and traps - and then take it in turns clobbering the enemy and being clobbered in response. Imagine Fire Emblem and Civilisation had a baby that is just coming up to its teen years and has turned a bit gothic.

In between battles you can level up your various characters in a ridiculously varied way, and if you choose poorly you'll most certainly feel the outcome on the battlefield.

The campaign covers a large landmass that consists of places to conquer and hub towns to buy new gear. In the hubs you can also get additional quests and progress through the engaging story of Cassia's madness and her ruthless will to rule.

Blackguards 2 is a deep game with hours upon hours of content, and it rewards those who immerse themselves in it.
