Played and finished the game. I don't understand the bad reviews, this game is good if you spend 15 minutes into understanding its mechanics. This is a card game with a (not original) story but still is fun. Maybe it's too easy once you understand the gameplay or maybe i choose a good strategy?

This game deserves your money and time, I hope in a sequel with 5X more cards, 5X more lenght and a higher difficulty. The AI never seemed to fully use the potential of its own deck.

7/10

Battle card game with superficial RPG elements and a see-through plot (at least give the villain a secondary portrait). The card battles are far too easy (note other reviewers mentioning they played through without ever losing a single battle) and offer virtually no depth. The so-casual-I'm-nodding-off crowd (aka anyone who gave a positive review to Hero of the Kingdom) will love this.

For anyone else--especially CCG players, RPGers, or anyone who likes a touch of challenge in their games--avoid.

For buying reference, whatever my playtime shows as is the length of time it took me to 100% the game. I don't mean to sound overly harsh, but this game is a paint-by-numbers casual time-waster.

This game combines RPG with card game. It's not bad, but I can't really say it's really good. I wish there was neutral recommendation here.
It's easy as hell, story is very simple and predictable and game is totally linear. But on the other hand it's easy to start, which is not common in card games and has good dose of humour,

VERDICT:
If you are looking for difficult and complicated RPG or card game, keep looking because this is just not what you are looking for.
If you are in the mood to play something simple and get all achievement in few hours, try this, you may enjoy it.

This game lacks polish. I'm playing a female character but all the dialog refers to me as a male. There are misspelled words and some of the jokes are very lame. One of my quests is buggy. But you know what? I don't care! Regardless of all that, the story is still fun and the card battles are incredibly addicting. If you like fantasy settings or card games or stories that poke fun at themselves, you'll probably enjoy this quite a bit. And the best part - the achievements work just fine! If you're thorough in your exploring, it's fairly easy to get a perfect game in one playthrough. So if you don't mind an unpolished game, look for this on sale and snap it up. This is one game I'm very happy I decided to buy.

I'm actually really enjoying this game. I'm a sucker for a good card-battling game and this one doesn't disappoint. There's an adventure mode and a quick-battle mode where you can pick a character with pre-made decks. It may not be as refined as a M:tG or Hearthstone card battling game, yet it's simple, straight forward and fun.

You do quests which will usually net you experience and some gold. Experience you can use to level up and improve your main stats, and gold naturally lets you go to shops to purchase new cards. The game does a good job at explaining the basics of how the cards work when you start the game, so don't worry about needing any prior knowledge of card-battling games when going into this.

My only gripe is that I would have loved it to have a versus mode with multiplayer, but that's a small gripe considering the price and the value I have gotten out of the game already.
