Disapointed with release version(s), but the potential for an AMAZING game is there. Give Stardock 1-3 months to polish.

If you like TBS and/or fantasy oriented games, you will EVENTUALLY want to buy Elemental.

A couple days after release the game still has a lot of technical problems, needs more and improved content, significant UI improvements, and MUCH better documentation and tutorials.

The POTENTIAL for a GREAT game is all there however. Stardock initially releases new games in a less polished state than I prefer, but they also ALWAYS relentlessly continue to support/develop their games until they are among the very best in the industry.

If you don't mind pre-ordering games to support a company while they develop a great game, buy Elemental now. If you don't like to pay until a game is 100%, keep checking back for news on the game's development every month or so until the inevitable glowing praise eventually tempts you to buy this future classic.
