This game is based on War games, and I have to say I always had a good interest.
After a few hours of play, I have to say I am not really that impressed. It seems that it appeals to a sense of nostalgia, although I do love the simplicity of the strategy and the overall design.
The music is wonderful and ambient, it really sets the mood and to me is probably one of the stongest elements of the game.
The game itself was part of a bundle and so the price I pretty good in terms of value, however the problems for me are with the gameplay itself.
The tutorials do give you the very bare bones basics, but really does not prepare you that well for what is coming. I enjoy a good learning curve and a good difficulty, but honestly I cannot say that the tutorials really helped that much.
I think the problem with this game is that the strategy element is during the placement phase and if you place your units and elements incorrect at the beginning then the game is as good as lost, no matter how well you play after that.
I had to laugh at one bug, which I screenshotted, I had won a game, and was waiting for the victory timer, after the timer ran out the scores changed, giving me a nice loss. I guess there really are no winners in war.
This game for a casual player like myself, has a learning curve that is just to steep, and gets pretty repetitive pretty fast. I'll bet if you are in to deep strategy games and were to read though pages of guides and websiges for how to best counter and place units etc then you may get a lot more out of this game, But I just cannot spend time doing that at the moment, I may take a look at a later date when I have time to look through some guides, and I'm sure the multiplayer element may be more fun.
I found the most fun for me was watching the rolling demo's and predicting who would win, the music is great as an ambient background noise, it was actually quite relaxing, I can see me watching some of those when I don't feel like actually playing any games myself.
Overall I perhaps expected too much, but this one just wasn't for me, not at the moment anyway.
