Summary

A New Way to Battle

The Good

The basic idea of having to build these floating islands completely changes how you have to think about your expansion strategies. I really enjoyed this new style of play.

The Bad

Games could reach serious stalemate positions where no one could make any noticeable advances on the other players. If everyone has the biggest shields and the biggest defense items, no one is going anywhere for a long time.

The Bottom Line

Everyone should play this game at least once just to get a feel for hanging in sky.
