I just picked it up.  I am excited to play it because it looks beautiful and it seem s like people have had good things to say about it over all

There is a thread here about the game from when it cam out on the PC.


Anyone else picking it up?

I got it too.  I was waiting to get this during a steam sale on the pc, but the iPad is even better.  I'm looking forward to playing some tonight.

I played this a lot over the weekend. It's starts out slowly with a lot of story elements. I almost couldn't make it through, because I found it difficult to keep all the characters in check and know what was going on. But once you break through the gameplay becomes pretty fun and enjoyable.

Thanks, I haven't bought it yet, good to know.

This signature is not personal, at all.  If you're not awake enough to realize our country is being taken down by an organized effort from a puppet chimp being controlled by a movement older than me.  Wake the freaking fack up.

Did they ever add character names above the dialogue of who was speaking?  I played the PC version when it first came out.  I found the giants really hard to keep track of because of how similar they looked and their unfamiliar sounding names.  Once you get to the human characters itís not a problem but the early section could have been made a lot better with a slight change in interface/art direction.

I still greatly enjoyed the game though.

I don't know if they had the names or not. They might have, but I still managed to get confused. I'm liking the game the more I get to play. I might finish it this weekend depending on how long the game is.

About 8 hours on normal difficulty.  The atmosphere gets pretty oppressive by the end, which is impressive from a 2D strategy game.

I did finish the game yesterday. It was an odd mix where the ending felt incomplete but I was glad it was over because I was ready to move on. I would recommend the game, but I don't think it's a must buy.
