There are two versions of this game that are available. There is the Czech version and the English version. With the English version some of the graphics and animations have been altered to improve them slightly compared to the Czech. For example, the strategic maps are now whole new pictures. The design of the missions have been altered as well, some have even been joined. The English version has included a tutorial and cheats codes making it a little easier than the Czech. There are two difficulty settings in English and three in Czech. With the two versions being available some may want to play both just to see the differences between each.
Spellcross displays a great contemporary earth military that is fighting for survival against the invasion of orcs, undead, harpies and many more alike. This game has the modern day military with the fantasy clichés that is very original and amazing design. This game is without a doubt a great combat game with a twist here and there. Definitely would enjoy a sequel to come of this game. Spellcross is definitely out of this world.
