I bought the game last night and started the tutorial before playing a bit with the campaign. This has to be one of the poorest tutorials I have seen. A bad sign is that the tutorial begins by telling you to read the manual first....
I did not read the manual first, and I shouldn't have to to for the tutorial. Then the tutorial early on tells me to do a number of separate things: click on the cans, buy two units, click on the tank, deploy one unit; OK, so I click on the screen and it disappears so I can follow the orders. There is no way to get this screen back!It say is if you get confused, to restart the tutorial...
So I click on the cans and buy one infantry unit. Hmmmm...now what was the other unit I was supposed to buy? No way to find out so I buy an armored unit (it was supposed to be an infantry corps). Now I remember that it said to click on the tank icon, so I do, and a screen appears. I manage to find the list of units that I bought, and I see a "deploy" button at the bottom, so I press that. Oops...now where did it way to deploy the unit? Darn bad memory.... I deploy it to a city at random which happens to be the correct one, click the next turn button and the next orders screen appears.
It says to select my infantry then to press the "attack" button. There is no such button on the screen and I have no clue where the hell it is. It is under the "units" icon, but the tutorial does not say that. Is it so difficult to write "Open the unit icon on the top right (one of the 4 buttons there with stars) and press the "attack" button which is the third from the top on tghe right"?
After resarting the tutorial a number of times after getting lost, I finally make it to the invasion part, but after transp[orting my troops to invade an enemy city, I am unable to get any orders screen. Is the scenario finished? Did I do something wrong? Did I forget something? I have no Idea, but that was enough for me.
I didn't buy Time of Wrath after trying the demo because there was no order of battle and I could find no way to figure out which units I had and where they were, but this game looks a lot better. Let's hope the tutorial is not an indication of the quality of the game.
