    If you can get past the faults of the interface and almost complete lack of guidance, there actually is an interesting game underneath it all.
  2. A game that offers tremendous depth but also has an unwieldy user interface and a prodigious amount of micromanagement.
  3. If you’re trying to learn the game from the manual, you might be in for a slow time. However, once you get the basics of how the game is played, you’re going to be in for a treat.

    Wonderful game. I have not played nearly all strategy games, but this is the best of the lot. If you ever loved Master of Magic, try this Wonderful game. I have not played nearly all strategy games, but this is the best of the lot. If you ever loved Master of Magic, try this out! There are not that many killer strategies, but versus AI many are still found... Just remember that humans have answers for those! Check the publisher's site, for the patch adds much, including modding... And you can get the walkthrough from there, with which you can learn the basics. Full Review »
