Wow, what a great little game! I didn't even see this one coming, having never played the first two. After my favorite TB fantasy series went to sh*t with HOMM 4 I've been stuck without anything new to play on the TB front for quite awhile. The Disciples series just didn't grab me and with Warlords 4 still a ways off I've been jonesing for a good TBS game.
I was reading the good buzz about this over at Gone Gold and decided that for $29.99 I could afford to give it a try. And I'm damn happy that I did. This looks to be a fairly deep TBS game with a lot in common with the HOMM series, but not so much it still dosen't felel like it's own game. I've only spent a couple of hour's messing around with the very good in-game tutorial and a couple of custom scenarios, and I can already tell this game is going to suck up a lot of my time.
Between this and KotOR I am truly in gaming heaven. RPG's and TBS games are my two favorite genres and I'm playing RPG that could be one of the best ever and a new TBS that looks to be excellent.
