Summary

A genre of it's own !

The Good

Basically, being a strategy game, this game has the weirdest build I have ever seen. For example I'll point out that it's built like a 3d-shooter game, the game will most of the time be focused on you, the player. As you roam around and cast spell, or summon creatures to aid you in defeating an opponent wizard. Storyline is well built, and also open-ended. The multiplayer is a weird experience in this game because it is mostly a resource fight.

The Bad

The game has a "scissors-stone-paper" mechanics. Each unit is good against another one, and perfection is impossible. This means you have to somehow know what creatures your opponent possesses, and act accordingly.He who first sights a hidden opponent, or he who has more resources, will win!

The Bottom Line

The weirdest game you will ever play!
