Summary

A charming game.

The Good

This game was straight forward to play and combined a rather interesting blend of role-playing with an RTS format. I also rather enjoyed the lack of resource harvesting. This left more time for actually building up areas and coercing your heroes into fighting where you needed them. This game was unique to me in that you can not order your heroes around, but merely place rewards for them to collect and cross you fingers and hope they follow your desires.

The Bad

Not enough missions. Of course I never tried this game in multiplayer mode, so not having more than 15 missions or so meant the game didn't take more than a few weeks to play and had very little replay value after that period.

The Bottom Line

A rather interesting blend of role-playing with an RTS format in which you have no direct control over your unit.
