Well maybe, but wtf were they thinking when they put together that 'kindergarden' UI and sprites? I mean really? What wargamer can take it seriously?
Maybe it's because I never grew up with pen-and-paper wargames, but I find absolutely nothing wrong with UOC's graphics. It tells me what I need to know, and that's really what counts.
I didn't grow up with pen-papper games either, so we can rule out that logic. But I agree with Kirk, the game looks like a joke with those sprites. Forget $5 for that game, you'd have to pay me to play it. Come on, why would you release anything like that for wargamers? Most of us have some pride when it comes to how games should look with units. What is with these half a man sprites are they like partly buried in ground or what?
It's sad, because the game could have a decent underlying engine and such, but with that UI, just no way I would pay to play it. With games like WitE and WitW coming, you'd have to be insane to pay good money on that. No thanks will save my money for WitW. Maybe the devs for UOC will wake up and fix the UI, then maybe I would look seriously at it.
