"WE BEEEEEAAATT!!!"-Orc Slayer
On a more serious note, this game is very fun to play in a relaxed way. Combat is very micro managy (or it can be) which can be both a good thing and a bad thing. Although, I've found myself spending most of my time so far watching my hunters hunt while I wait for buildings to build. Still a very fun and in depth game.
+In depth and micro managable combat if you want to, click and swarm units if you don't want to micro.
+Fleshed out races with personalities.
+Fun animations and ai things to keep you entertained while things build.
+Customizable city lay outs (for the orcs anyway, not sure about other races).
+Good variety of units and upgrades.
+Very in depth lore that gives you a good feel for the world.
-Buildings can take a very long time to build (as in a few hours real time).
-Skirmish mode has to be bought.
-Can be very dull at times.
-Most of the quest dialog is text only, but there are still fun unit battlecries.
-Graphics are about on par with Warcraft 3 (but then again, it's just as enjoyable).
Overall, I recommend this game as a fun strategy game to play as a relaxing "watch your city grow" type of game. Especially now that it's only $4.99 USD.
