There's great varietyFantastic HoMM-style turn-based strategy RPG built around Norse mythology marred by some poor game design choices. There's great variety between the races and each has their own campaign, with each faction having a distinct style. The combat is unique and feels like Ogre Battle but this is also one of it's biggest problems; similarly to Ogre Battle, if all of your units in a party die, they are gone forever. Your favorite hero and his units will transfer between missions so this means if one of your super-units dies you can potentially throw the campaign. The terrain control mechanic is a great visual representation of your area control but I find it downplayed in many missions because of a turn limit or boss rush. Hero customization is diverse and has more options than HoMM but they are slower to level up. Although it has aged poorly, this is a great HoMM alternative that is worth checking out if you're a fan of strategy games. Expand

I bought it having seen the reviews everywhere, which seem amazing, and was thoroughly disappointment. Its a turn based strategy with a tiny range of units (4-5) and tiny army sizes (6 units MAX), no tactical movement in combat and very few abilities to use other than attack, making the combat extraordinarily simple and repetitive - its common to fight a battle with exactly the same units and moves several times.
    The out of battle strategy is similarly basic - a tech tree in which you can usually afford everything you need, as units take so long to actually rank up to be able to use the advanced structures.
    Top this all off with an interface that a Dwarf Fortress player can call bad, and you have the simplest, most repetitive strategy game I have ever been baited into buying.
