Jan 19, 2014A brilliantly fun game. It's got a lot of low reviews, which is fair, but there's a reason I'm giving it a 9: it got better with age.
If you've ever played Mischief Makers post-N64 era, you'll know what I'm talking about here. What was, at the time, somewhat behind on graphics and sound now just comes off as "an ordinary old game". It just doesn't look poorly-made anymore!
The other improvement was in bugs. Very nearly all of them have been fixed.
The story and voice-acting still suck though. The story is a typical excuse plot, like Advance Wars with less interesting characters, and the voice-acting is hilariously bad! But this isn't the kind of game you play for the campaign anyway, so whatever.
One thing that's gone completely now is the multiplayer. The one that used to be subscription-based, for some reason. The AI is good enough, better than normal strategy game AI, but if you want to play with friends you have to get Massive Assault Network 2 instead (which isn't as good at all for single-player).
This is all without reviewing the good sides. In that regard, let me just say: it's basically the best turn-based strategy game system ever made! It's REALLY good! Imagine Advance Wars mixed with Hearthstone, with a lot more randomness than either. If you haven't played both those games... um... it's just really good!… Expand
