The game itself isn't bad. Though it can improve on a few areas.
The good points are the characters, game decisions, the battle map and the story.
For one all the characters are like a cross of Steam Punk with Fantacy. I loved the Dwarven Ambassador with a wolf belt across his back with a gold pocket watch in his vest. As well as the Lizard man who played a well educated gentleman, complete with a monicole and ego.
The Princess were all hot, even the Undead princess (don't judge me). Each one came complete with a backstory to include elements for a story development.
These game choices did have an effect in the game, I will point that out. The more a race liked you, then if you owened land with that race, they would support your war effort.
The War Map was like Total War meets Risk. Ever spot of territory gave a bonus to gold, race, research and troop production. The way the A.I. handles itself there is a level of strategy involved.
The means of RTS were unique, the only resource were the population of the map. Generated by a specific building type. Plus to get the building to amass new troops (Infantry, Tanks, Naval, Airships) you capture a building plot then tell it to build that specific building.
The negative points however were things like the overal design of RTS combat, the dragon controls.
The RTS element felt more like a zerg rush mixed with Rock, Paper, Sissors. In the end I would just amass a huge army of varied types and let them flood into the enemy stronghold.
Not too mention the designs of the troops were very poor, imo. Nothing unique to stnd out. Everything was Steam Punk themed, yet everything looked like it was made out of wood and 'magic'. the only cool troop types were the blimps and the naval ships.
The dragon controls took some getting use to. Though as a Dragon, you can only fly and breath fire. I was hoping for more abilities like going Godzilla on a base. Or even just kicking around the enemy troops. But you're restricted to flying and fire breath.
In summation, the game is not at all bad, it has possibilities to be improved upon. But the story and game are relatively short. I got the game and beat it in 3 days. That's b/c I learned to farm gold and strategy cards.
It deserves a 3 out of 5, though in stead of a thumbs up I give it a side ways hand wave "meh".
