The Battle for Wesnoth - 1.4 Review

Filed under
Gaming

I wrote about gaming in Linux before and left out my favorite all-time best game: Wesnoth. I said that I would write about it so that’s what I’m going to do today.

The Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based fantasy strategy that has both single player modes and a multiplayer mode. I’ve been playing Wesnoth for over a year now and have finished all the installed campaigns and tried a good number of the downloadable ones. Now, The Battle for Wesnoth -1.4 has been released (I have been excited about this) and I can say, I’ve never seen it better.

The Battle for Wesnoth is a large download. For space-hungry pc’s The Battle for Wesnoth will take a couple hundred megabytes of disk space. For my Gentoo install (on a 300Mhz computer) the process took overnight.

The Battle for Wesnoth now requires boost, which didn’t help my hard drive space either:
