I am not much of an RTS fan but the RTS elements were woven nicely into the game.
On many occassions, you could not see the action as a tree, building, or other object blinded you. I was also easy to get lost in some areas and difficult to find your way out. The most frustrating part was learing how to summon your buddies when you were in a different area as the trainer was not very explanitory. I would encourage everyone to read a walkthru before playing the game. Lasty, some times you woul click on a group with no response and you would become raw meat as your unit/group stood there until it you were reloading as you were now toast. But the battles were great, with different spells flashing, expanding, making great sounds, arrows flying, and fire balls exploding . It was a fun game to play once you learned the controls.
