    If you're a fan of turn based strategy games then for sure try this one out as it is fun and terribly addicting. It falls flat as far as graphics and storyline go but that's not what these type of games are about. The main flaw of this game though are the long loading screens. Every time you take a few steps or get in/out of a fight you have to endure a loading screen.

    I am a fan of strategy games and this little gem really hit the spot. At first, the feeling was.."hmmm..this is quaint and simple" with a smirk thinking I might toy with it for a few more minutes. Next thing I know, its hours later and my thirst for the game was growing with each step. Next thing after that, it had been around a week and I had played nothing else.

At first, the feeling was.."hmmm..this is quaint and simple" with a smirk thinking I might toy with it for a few more minutes. Next thing I know, its hours later and my thirst for the game was growing with each step. Next thing after that, it had been around a week and I had played nothing else. There is something about the mechanics of the combat that is addictive. It borrows a bit from bejeweled in that placing 3 units adjacently is at its base, but the similarities end there. You can build walls for defense horizontally and attacks vertically. Turn timers based usually on the relative strength of an attack count down and then your units charge across to the enemy field, smacking into them with a variety of unit based effects. It feels like Voltron has formed his blazing sword when you light the candle on some of the heavier pieces and it really builds suspense while one of these impending doom bringers is charging up. It is a great thrill when you develop a strong attack or defense and then watch it unfold successfully. Between the battles you walk around to different locations and can find random encounters or treasure chests containing artifacts for your hero (more a general than a combat participant). Each hero gets a different spell that slowly charges during each battle with effects ranging from direct damage to shields or wall manipulation or reduced cool downs and much more. The narrative won't blow you away, but it fits the game. The beauty of this game is its simple approach that yields complex strategy/puzzle decisions. You don't have to be a chess master to beat the game, but you will put your thinking cap on and rub your chin as the game throws twists and turns at you. Bottom line...accessible strategy/puzzle fun that has multi-player to boot, but can also entertain a room of strategy enthusiasts even during single player as different possibilities are spotted and discussed. Dig it!!! Collapse

    A damn good tactical strategic game that has a ridiculous amount of depth for an XLA title. [Issue#73, p.102]

    A true original: witty, challenging and bigger than most retail games. Trust us, it's ace. [July 2011, p.87]

    This HD remake of Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes offers the same great puzzle RPG action with superior graphics and online play, but at the end of the day it feels more at home on the Nintendo DS.
