Best tactical game on the ipad!
I've had my ipad for some time now and have always enjoyed gaming on it. This is the first title though that's come along on the device, grab my attention and not let go! It is incredibly competitive and the complexity of the tactics require you to think out every command and will mean the difference between an incredibly satisfying victory or horrendous defeat. I've read numerous reviews about how the learning curve is too steep for new players. This is not true at all. I'm new but am near the top of the leader boards. You just have to like tactical games! ... I have noticed a few drastically negative reviews, one in particular calling the gameplay obtuse, and found a need to respond. Anyone who could describe this game in such a manner obviously couldn't be bothered with learning its depth. Everyone has a right to there own opinion of course but I would venture to call such a comment blatantly arrogant when so many others applaud the game's tactical complexity.
Love the hi-res graphics! Unfortunately not everything has made the transition. Hopefully that is coming!
A lot of fun.
Reminds me of old school Rainbow 6 where you detailed each units movement, to the letter. It is rather amazing. I have had lots of fun with this game. Most games of this caliber require turn-based strategy. But here, both teams play out their movements at the same time which requires an extra bit of strategy that is amazing. Your smallest mistake could mean the entire battlefield is compromised, there are a lot of stakes riding on. Your choices... Which means a Lot of thought has to go into your choices.. It's pretty awesome!
I’ve been playing this game (and ignoring my other iPad games) for several months now. It’s perfect. I primarily play the instant skirmish games - short enough for a single game when I need a quick break. It’s easy for the hours to fly by when I start playing. The AI/difficulty seems to be tuned just right for me - it’s easy to lose if I make mistakes or take chances, but the game definitely comes down to tactics. Every situation is winnable. I love it.
