Summary

Not that great compared to other games in the genre

The Good

  • Lengthy campaign
  • Turn-based tactics
  • It's free

The Bad

  • I don't like the regenerating units mechanic, and would prefer a fixed number of units and a set number of reinforcements
  • Ranged attacks aren't actually ranged in any way
  • Few tactical options when compared to turn-based tactics classics like X-COM or Titans of Steel

The Bottom Line

If you want a game with light strategy/tactics in the vein of games found on handheld consoles, then you might like this game. There was not enough depth to hold my interest for long, however.
