with time and patches, i think (hope) this will end up a good game, a classic is another story, the learning curve is steep with this one, and it almost feels like you needed to have played a lot of there games before it to really do it justice, Alea Jacta Est well didn't work great for me, it always seemed a bit sluggish and not too well done / programmed tbh, top end pc but all i got with gameplay with low end settings was a poor result, sits on hard drive and tbh forgot about it, not really played any others so can't comment, but they all look like they use the same engine, which is fine if it works well, game looks and feels alright, but i can't put my finger on it, feels like something is missing, not one of those games i look forward to sit playing for hours on end, but may one day...
for now it's bought and paid for but hardly played, as better atm are out and worth more attention, will go back to it, by then most stuff will be patched and fixed and maybe easier to find and play
Thanks for the response. But patches will not cure the itsy-bitsy mini-map. The entire UI should have been redone 3 or four games ago. The whole thing looks like it was made in someone's garage. When I get a game I dont like I always eat it. But to get one that's unplayable is not tolerable. Crappy interface, crappy tutorial, just an all around crap game.
I don't expect Matrix to do the right thing and issue me a store credit, but AGEOD has ripped me off for the last time. And make no mistake this cheesy crap is a rip.
