I would very much recommend this game, though if you already have "Master's of a Broken World" or vise versa then this is essentially the same game (before it got the fancy graphics). This game is hard, so far as there is almost no documentation that can help you understand every singe battle/challenge/random event. About the only thing you can do is dive in, play, lose, and do it all over again (I re-ran the tutorial about 3 times). But once you do learn, and you conquer your first shard, well I for one was hooked.
This is not a game that you can ever just bide your time with, building up enough of an army, and a powerful enough hero. Yes these are the things you must have to win, but the computer opponents are doing exactly the same things, and in many cases, they are much more aggressive. You can find yourself surrounded, fighting to keep the enemy out of your strongholds, when only rounds earlier you thought you had the game well in hand. Yes it is somewhat repetative (part of the game getting easier is that you eventually start to know what pattern or solution to a given "random" event is best), and there are times that it will feel unfair, but trust me. When you bull rush an enemy strong hold, kill off 2 of his heroes, siege his castle, then finally banish him, all before HE was able to break away, then you too will know how much fun this game can be!
