    Hills and Rivers Remain will keep you on your toes and keep you coming back.

    A challenging game. Actually, I think it's almost too brutal even though you can practice up in quick play mode before plowing through the lengthy campaign. Casual gamers will feel bludgeoned after just an hour.

    It's a mixed bag, maybe, but if you were to roll the dice on Hills and Rivers Remain you'd likely come away with a win.

    My biggest gripe with the game? Its brevity.

    Without a compelling story or multiplayer it's hard to find a reason worth sticking with the plain strategy gameplay of Hills and Rivers Remain.

    The story is unfortunately forgettable, and raises the question of why Square Enix did not tap into its sizable library of popular licences to provide something more of substance.

    Unless you're crazy about this type of game, disregard the Square-Enix label and pass on Hills and Rivers Remain.

    Though admittedly not the best of Square-Enix offerings, the addicting and challenging gameplay will keep you entertained and hooked from beginning to end. Full Review »
