Well lets look at the negatives:
-This isn't the only game of it's type on the market
-This is not an OMG DAT GRAPHICS kind of game
-Unless you wanna drop some cash your going to have to spend a lot of time playing to get higher level units
And now for the positives:
-Nice, well implamented art style
-Solid well paced gameplay
-The game is balenced*
-Not a pay-to-win**
-Lots of interesting mechanics
-Plenty of potential***
-A dev team that's DEDICAITED to quality****
-I personally find it fun and have no problems with playing my game to get more stuff to have more fun playing the game
*The game uses an "Army Points" system. Basically each unit is rated based on how much they can contribute in game. This helps in match makeing as a player with a bunch of uber OP units wont get paired with a nube with a bunch of starters.
**Everything attributing to how effective you are in game thus far apears to be accessible to anyone playing the game without having to spend money. Not to say spending money wouldn't let you get some epic stuff, just that if you got said epic stuff you'll then be paired with other people who also have epic stuff, regardless of whether or not you are fully aware of how to use aformentioned epic stuff. So you're not paying to become more powerful then everyone else, just to skip the time it would have taken to build up the necessary in-game currency.
***Looking at the wiki's and even some of the menues game mechanics is enough to tell you that Cyanide is no where neer adding all the content they want to have in this game. Which is awesome concidering how much they already have. Multiple game types, lots of different units, and even ways to custamize them all look to be things players will have to look forward to in the neer distant future.
****Something I just felt deserved to be mentioned. This dev team didn't just rush their release. This game was set to go into open beta some time this fall, yet got pushed back because the devs didn't feel it was ready. And it's not like it's impossible to play right now, getting into the closed beta is rather simple, and they seam to still have a few keys left so I recommend you check out their facebook. These guys aren't rushing this, and seing as they've now set a more solid release date (January if you didn't notice...) it's not because they're lazy. Otherwise they would have pushed it back like half a year or something... No it's because they're willing to take there time to make sure they get it right. And I for one apreciate that.
So yeah... Also it's free, so why the hell not? At least give it a shot, or if you're not into strategy then look up some gameplay vids when it comes out.
That's all for now, please pardon my bad grammar, and thanks for reading. I really hoped this helped.
