The game is very fun and very easy for newcomers to the genre to pick up. The strategy is simple but at the same time appeals to hardcore strategy-RPG players. The idea of the burning aura that appears forces the player to plan and not rush headlong into the enemy. And the ability for a select few to transform into much more powerful characters is a fun idea and is very useful. It also has a turn limit so you really have to make sure not to take too long or you'll lose and not even realize it. The only problem I had with the game was the story was not that great and it was really annoying to listen to the characters talk with a highly exaggerated french accent. So if you are going to buy this game (which I highly recomend) turn down the volume during cut scenes and you'll should be very happy you bought it.
