I LOVE This Game!
Two reviews - a short one and a longer one. The short one is the title. Here is the long version -
I'm SICK of all the crappy games in the App Store getting 5 stars. Cut the Rope? Really? Great - if you're four years old or have the attention span of a hummingbird. I've been looking for depth. This is it. Something to sink my teeth into. The reason it gets four stars is because it is great (IMO five stars means "perfect"). Now when the wife wants me to go to the mall (GRRRRRRR!!) I say "sure". Sitting on a bench playing Wesnoth. Wife wants to go car shopping? No problem - sitting in the customer lounge playing Wesnoth. Wife wants to visit her Mom? You guessed it - sitting on the sofa playing Wesnoth.
Full disclosure - this game is not for everyone. This is old school, turn-based, strategy RPG at its finest. It is more akin to electronic chess than Elder Scrolls - plan accordingly. If you're looking for thoughtful gaming that's going to take a long, long while - this is it.
Great port of a great game
This app is a wonderful port of the computer version of wesnoth that contains many features that most App Store games lack. Features such as mod support and cross platform multiplayer are both rare things to find on current apps. The game plays smoothly and is for the most part stable even when handling mods that are designed with computers in mind. With this in mind the only real issues I find are in the interface. Currently functionality is missing in the multiplayer lobbies that makes it near impossible to use various chat features that PC and Mac users enjoy, this includes the near inability to private message other users and the inaccessibility of the friend system.
Great strategy game!
Love the stories, the adventures, the characters, the battles! Don't play if you don't want to think. There's a million things to think about. What time of day is it? What weapons will be most effective for offense? Which for defense? What's the terrain? Can I hold that village in the swamp? And don't get so caught up in the battle that you forget your objective!
Four stars 'cause I've had it crash on occasion. Still my favorite game by far!
