Best game I've played on AppStore
First off let me say there's a reason there are no one star reviews, this game is amazing. First off the game plays a lot like fire emblem (and the story lines are just as good!) but with the ability to recruit units and then level them up instead of just happening upon them (which still can happen). Off the bat you have access to 10 plus campaigns with each having 4-32 scenarios a piece. They all have vetting difficulties, and then you are asked to set the difficulty of the AI. This leads to a game that has lots of of replay ability and ability to compensate for the players ability to get better, meaning you won't get bored. Next this game has a multiplayer feature (I haven't used it yet, but it has it). The most notable thing this game offers is in it's add-ins button. All of the are FREE, yes FREE, and there are thousands of them. This ranges from new campaigns, multiplayer maps, units, and mods. I just picked up a campaign off the add ons that contains a 3 part campaign story, with 32 scenarios each. Overall this game is magnificent, and I believe it rivals Fire emblem, and completely destroys final fantasy (both on the iOS and other systems).

Incredible Game, with one or two VERY minor hitches
I have always loved this game. My cousins and I would play it on a dinosaur of a PC when we were kids ok vacation, and we never got tired of it. Imagine my glee when I found out in was on the App Store! It has not disappointed, and is just as fun and challenging as I remember.
The only minor thing I would say is that there are one or two UI hitches that I've run across that don't quite translate to the iPhone. For example, during the tutorial, there is still a message that tells you to press "u" to undo an action. You can still undo things, but it took me playing around with it to figure out how.
Over all, fantastic as always, with a few translation issues here and there.
Stellar game, even without certain features
I've played this game for several years on both the computer and on the iOS version and I have to say it is an exceptionally fun game. Many many quests and different ways to customize the game make it even more fun once you get the hang of it. I am rating just the iOS version, so I must say that it DOES have some problems with it not having not as many features as the computer version, but nonetheless still a great game. I'll bring this rating up to 5 stars once they update it to show a numbered grid. This is very necessary on certain campaigns so as to know where to go in the map.
