    If this game's story is a rip off of Harry Potter, then I never want to read a Harry Potter book or watch a Harry Potter movie. The story is filled with random characters who all have little motivation to do what they are doing. It's as if the developers made some story, then actually played a mission... Then they tried to continue their story without reviewing what they wrote before the mission. There's a whole disjointed feel to it all. It's as if the story and characters are all trying to go somewhere but don't go anywhere at all. Yes, it's a beginner's RTS game, but it's not very user friendly. I think it would have been great on the PC. It sort of reminds of StarCraft Brood War in a sense that there are no rally points and you can only select a small amount of units. So the game is you constantly selecting units and then constantly scrolling back to your base (since there are no hotkeys) to make units. I will say that the art is awesome. Collapse

    You have probably never thought about it, but if given the opportunity to create and command your own army of elfves, fairys, imps demons, dragon, cats, ghosts, blobs and chimeras and plenty more then this game is perfect for your.

    A hugely enjoyable strategy game with an excellent original story. Quality unique games should be tried by everyone or they will die out. this is well worth

  1. It's a console RTS that controls well, looks great, sounds great, and is fun from start to finish. [JPN Import]
  2. Grim Grimoire doesn't have quite the depth or complexity of a western RTS like "Command & Conquer 3, but it does have an elegance that such games lack. [June 2007, p.72]
  3. GrimGrimoire is fun at first, but not in the same league as developer Vanillaware's "Odin Sphere". [July 2007, p.92]
