Downgrade from the original

As an avid player of the first Hero Academy, I was really excited for this game to come out. Don’t be fooled, this is not the same game. The 5 action points have been changed to the nauseatingly familiar mana system. This effectively slows the game to a crawl. Remember in the first game where there were heroes all over the board and there were so many possibilities? Those days are gone. I’m a huge fan of Hero Academy. This isn’t Hero Academy the way I like it.

Edit: Asynchronous multiplayer desperately needs to come back. I loved playing the original because it was easy for me to take 1 minute and make my move. I may not have 10-15 to sit and play a whole game.

My other issue is the extreme simplicity of the HP and attack strength. In the original, for example, the archer had a 300 base attack strength. When shooting a dwarf bombardier with a shield, that would reduce it 20%, so now doing 240 damage. If standing next to a paladin, that was an extra 5% so now the damage was only 225. Offense and defense both required planning and some basic mathematics even. Winning felt like an intellectual accomplishment when the math just worked out. Now, if you can add or subtract by one, you’re pretty much equipped.

Best game one the App Store

I don’t remember playing the original, but I love Hero Academy 2. I’ve read reviews that say it’s not as good as the original. I personally don’t mind the pace of the game. I just like to play the game for what it is.
Every match is a fun experience, even if I lose. Trying different tactics and deciding which hero/weapon/spell to use is just fun. You get rewarded nicely even if you don’t progress much in the rankings.
It’s like Hearthstone with the card collection, but you get to decide where to move your heroes around, which is an exciting tactical endeavor in each match. The graphics are beautiful, the effects are beautiful, and the voices are fun and not annoying. I don’t feel like I have to pay to collect cards and have fun.
This is my favorite game on the App Store. I’m constantly searching the store for role playing/strategy games that can hold my interest for a long time. I think I’ve found the perfect one for me.

Not as good as HA1

beasstt

I was a HA1 fanatic. Bought all the DLC packs and played constantly with friends and randos alike. I was so sad when they stopped supporting that game and let it fade off into the night. When I saw this game pop up on the App Store I was super excited... for about 2 hours. This is now a trading card game similar to Hearthstone and Clash Royale. You build a deck and set off to challenge your foe. If you picked bad cards, you’re screwed. I liked the regularity of the previous game, you knew exactly what you were getting into when you faced the dwarves or the dark elves and could plan accordingly. There is too much variation in this game and it’s impossible for me to plan a strategy because I don’t have a clue what I’m up against. Unless you love TCGs and constantly having to balance your deck, this game isn’t so much like the first one as it is like the dozens of TCGs on the App Store already. The things that made the first game great have been abandoned in favor of copycat mechanics found in other popular games.
