First of all there are many negative reviews due to misrepresentation of the game by developer. Most people assumed that this game is an old school RPG game (as it is announced) and judged accordingly. If you want to categorize a game like this it simply falls somewhere between the Heroes series and Disciples series.
I don’t usually write any reviews on games but in my opinion this one is particularly wronged by too many people. The early access version is 6-8 hours long to beat on first playthrough but there are people who played it like 40-50 hours and then disliked it on so many levels which is odd.
At this stage this game deserves at least a 7 out of 10.
-High quality sound and music
-Good controls and camera mechanics
-Simple yet sufficient tutorial as a part of the campaign
-Good story telling
-Manageable army and battlefield size
-Simple yet fun to play battles.
-Good blend of side quests
-Challenging AI both in strategy map and battles
-Some bugs and crashes which may hopefully be fixed before full release
-Quest tracking is very unclear, some won't update as you progress, you have to read through the quest that you are on several times before you can figure out what to do.
-Throws you in too deep and leaves you in the dark too soon.
-Camera can’t be unlocked in strategy map (always fixed on your party)
-no minimap (going between the map and strategy map is tiresome at some point)
-very slow levelling
-Lack of restart level option (VERY important to have.)
Overall most of the cons are agreed upon by too many people but most of them can be fixed, polished or added before the full release of this game. As far as I can track the developer team is highly interested in what people think of their game and active on the Forums. So I believe that they can release a way better final product at the end.
