  1. Definitely a thinkers game. And it's something we don't have a whole lot of these days.
  2. Wrath's only problems are small but important: Loading unfortunately breaks up the game's pacing, the fighting engine could be deeper, and there's no online mode. [Feb 2004, p.90]

    A solid title. The AI can sometimes be frustratingly stubborn, and the battles can take a long, long time to complete, but there's plenty to like here.
  4. The game's not ideal on every level, but it's good enough on all of them so that it should provide an entertaining experience and a decent amount of replay value for those who enjoy equal parts methodical strategy and button-mashing mayhem.
  5. Each game also consists of doing the same thing over and over again, and while this provides the perfect even playing field when skirmishing with a friend, it gets monotonous alone.
  6. 60
    If either half of Wrath Unleashed had been more fully formed, the game would have been easy to recommend, but as it stands, half a fighting game and half a strategy game does not make a whole game. [Mar 2004, p.64]
  7. What I find most surprising about the game is the distinct lack of replay value.

    Somewhere between a strategy game and an action game. It's not bad, but like a lot of games that mix genres this way, it excels at neither. With enough skill, small guys can deal decent damage and help take down the larger ones in combat. Health remaining from battles carries over to the strategy board, so healing and capturing buildings play a key role. Would be cool for multiplayer online. Expand
