Had not even heard of this till i saw it on plays coming soon releases.
I read some reviews and was impressed enough to fork out the £25 to get it.
Money well spent in my opinion.
The game is Very addictive and just soaks up your free time.
The game is very well polished on the graphic scale and sound affects are pretty good.
The game is the usual story based main game with loads of side quests to earn leadership allowing more armys to control and gold to buy ure army.
So along the game are varies towns and islands etc with locals and castle owners wanting your help etc.
this all leads to gold and various powerups and skills.
You have 5 slots to allow armies from spiders,Wolves,bears,snakes,soldiers,archers,mages,paladins,hyenas and those are just the ones i have so far from about 15hours gaming.
I just love this game as you are left with that urge to play,play play when ure not on it and that is something missing with most of todays games.
so ure basically trotting around the towns,swamps,foresets etc on horseback which allows you to see the various enemy and how many units they are controlling allowing you to actually choose to engage or avoid,choosing engage then moves the view to a kind of chess board where you take turns to move ure units to attack and kill.
All in all i would have no hesitation in recommending this game to any one loving the games like The Witcher and any Rpg with that slightly different element.
5 Stars for me.
Have now been playing for 2 weeks and enjoy saying that im still wanting and having the urge to play this all the time.
I am now level 20 and have just got to the area from using the book of the dead and the enemy are still harder than me,forcing me to go back to other islands and places and kick more ass for more XP.
The help i can offer is spend ure rune stones wisely when upgrading might,magic and the other one.
I would highly recommend buything the upgrade that allows the 2 reserve spots to be used in ure team so that you can swap between units when ure coming to a battle,saves time in having half ure team wiped out and then having to travel back to tjhe recruitment area where u hired them,also save stuff like,sprouts and spiders eggs,griffen eggs etc so u can use them and have additional units in ure team.
Also you may noticed smiley faces below ure team face icons,this is morale,low,neutral etc.If u mix classs like have and elfs,griffens,bears,cannoneers and then demons the moreal will drop to possibl critial,some races do not like others and morale will drop and ure team will not kick ass as much,so you will need to use the runes you collect etc and buy the upgrade that allows mixed races to have not negative effect on others.s
And the the main thing is not all quests can be completed early on in the game as u just wont be strong enough so will need to return,
and most of all dont be in a rush to just go with the story as this game just about forces you to do side quests etc as the enemies are just overpowinging and impossibe, so all in all, do side quests all the time to gain those runes to spend as well as money, do battles when u know u can wim to gain Xp& Leadership as the more u have the more units you can command..
G.luck and have fun
