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!
