    It balances an equal number of frustrating and appealing elements to create a love-it or hate-it experience. [Mar 2002, p.72]
  2. Outstanding 3D graphics and unit animations combine with excellent music and sharp interfaces to create a compelling medieval Japanese setting filled with magic and mysticism.

    Offers some definite innovation in terms of unit creation and resource management, but the wretched unit AI and lackluster missions left me wondering what we were waiting all this time for. [Feb 2002, p.78]

    Ok this might all be sounding a bit Star Warsy, but besides that this is a well done (if somewhat formulaic) RTS.

For a game in 2001 this was quite a revolutionary RTS. An underground game 11 years later, but as a young boy I really enjoyed this game. So much, that this was the start of a boy going to bed, waited until my parents were sleeping, and then crawl out of bed back behind my PC and play it for hours late in the night. Looking back now, the graphics where so imaginative yet realistic, which they still are (even better than some of the games nowadays). The story (although I couldn't understand it fully back then) is fantastic, and the sounds where great. It simply is a game in which I could, and can fully get dragged into. Full Review »
