Heroes of Annihilated Empires comes with a single campaign, and it features the Sylvan folk and the titular hero, Elhant. It's a little odd that there are empty slots in the campaign selection screen, as if there are two other campaigns to unlock. While apparently reserved for the two planned sequels, the slots are more than a little misleading and make the game feel unfinished. Thankfully, the single campaign is likable, even if it's mired in the decades of high fantasy that preceded it. We've all fought the legions of undead with our swords and bows in other games, and there's nothing inherently wrong with the conventional fairies, elves, and dwarves that populate Heroes. But there are hints of greater things to come that remain unexplained, such as the remains of a crashed jet fighter on a mountain top. If you're looking for some kind of intriguing science-fiction/fantasy crossover like the 2001 role-playing game Arcanum, you won't find it here, as the game forces you to wait for the next game in the series to be enlightened. Elhant is a fascinating and impetuous hero, though, and his strong voice acting carries the entire campaign. Yet you can't help but wonder why there are tank remnants in a land of pixies and enchanted forests, and the teasing final scene doesn't help matters.
