I'm 43 and often buy game for myself or my children. I'm a fan of turn-based games, so I picked this up.
The game is based on turn-based tactical combat. There's a good story line that plays out as you move through the game. The game has many user friendly features:
- All heroes in your group level at the same time regardless if you're using them in a fight.
- There's no penalty for losing a fight or running from one.
- When you use a special item to unlock the side missions, there's no penalty if you use the wrong one (i.e. nothing gets "used up").
- You can move back through the story as much as you like to re-play fights or just have fun.
As you play through the game, more heroes join your group. Presently, I have 18 heroes in my group, but fights use 5 or fewer for each, forcing you to choose which heroes are best (or which you like the most).
At first I thought it was going to be a kiddie game, but as an adult, I'm drawn to the game and find myself wanting to play more. At the 4th stage, the fights become more challenging and require you to really use the various special moves that each hero has. Now, at the 5th stage, I'm having to plan well to get past the first fight.
There appears to be a random treasure generator used in the game which is nice since you get a variety of items that can drop. You can carry an infinite supply of items (which is handy since new heroes arrive empty-handed).
There are basic towns available in the game, but they offer only basic service. However, one option is to fight a random group of enemies for cash. This is a nice feature since it allows you to practice using your enemies together and offers replay value.
All in all, this has turned out to be a great game.
