Not freeware... OpenSource, Sep 15, 2010
This is most likely the best turn-based strategy games I have EVER played. Graphics wise I think it’s OK… but what it lacks in graphics is compensated by intelligent game play, funny characters and nice stories.

The Battle for Wesnoth is one of the best turn-based strategy games I’ve played in a VERY long time. But what makes it all the more surprising is how the entire thing is freeware, built by nothing but volunteers.
The quality of the first campaign is absolutely phenomenal. Further campaigns vary on quality; some creators of campaigns are better at writing dialogue, while others are better at strategic campaign play. Yet there are always new campaigns to try out—and if you really like it, you can even create a campaign for yourself!
Wesnoth is definitely worth the download; I highly recommend it.
nice rpg in the style of the old warcraft, Jul 01, 2009
I´ve just finished the first campaign so I´ve only seen part of the game yet, but I really like it so far!
The graphics are like in the early 90s (monkey island & co) but the gameplay is smooth and easy.
The stories are not worth reading (to be true, i stopped reading them after the second “quest” so I actually don´t really know but feel them ^^), but the are a couple of game mechanics I really like (f.e.: undead are stronger at nights, elves are faster and stronger in a forest etc).
I had a lot of fun building armies and heroes, and it has challenging campaigns with funny music and sounds….
for such a small freeware-game it´s just terrific!
That’s why I rate it 4 stars.
cheers buddies, have fun with it =)
