I would rate this game a 7/10. Although, I probably would never replay this game or play through a card based coop campaign game similar to this one again.

Pros:
-Tons of Card Customization
-2 Player Coop campaign
-Lots of DLC and Side Quest content

Cons:
-Cheesy Story
-Not Dubbed (Although, my friend and I had fun voicing the characters ourselves. :P)
-Too much Time is focused on Deck Customization than on actual Gameplay. You have to consistently take the time to customize your deck for each scenario, otherwise you get trampled or overrun easily.
-Most of the mission pass/fail outcome is entirely based on the luck-of-the-draw than on actual skill.

I love this game. It shines as two player co-op, and has varied enough goals to keep it interesting. I'd love to see more levels in future DLC content.

Structurally, it has a decent enough mechanic to carry itself for a good while, though I feel as if the progression into the story is a bit slow; I would have let this fall into the vast pile of games that lost my interest if not for this game's solitary achievement.

The achievements in a game play many functions, they can be a roadmap for the interesting twists and turns the story could take, they can be a litany of what humiliations a human will endure, but all of them illustrate what the development team values in the player base.

What the developers value is the ability to listen, to diligently not skim over dull text.

Love this game.

Hint: for those having a difficult time a few stages in, try completing the secondary objectives in each of the beginning stages. This unlocks more powerful units and tools.

Enjoyable game.
I had a pretty fun time playing this title.
There were a few boaring/low points, but I made it through.
Unlocking every card meant going back and trying things a few times.
The challenge was average to moderate.
Multiple modes helped prevent tedium.
The stroy was fun but predictable, and maybe a little forced.
Over all I had a decent time, so I will recommend it.
