I always have the same question re any RTS, and it's make-or-break:

Can you give orders while paused?
+1

Thank you. I'll give it a shot.

I don't think the +1 means yes but that he wants to know too.  As do I.  I never play RTS that don't allow paused orders.

Just tested in my old version of the game and you can give orders while in pause. It is however a very different RTS. Huge amount of troops, huge maps. You don't control single units. You link your units to heroes (i think about 50 per heroe).

RTS games have gone out of style a little, but when they were all the rage I used to get frustrated by reading 5 reviews of a game and not a damn one of them would say whether you can give orders while paused.

Yes! The single most important requirement and they just would not address it. There have been a LOT of promising games that failed that litmus test.

Looks like the (dream?) Child step-aunt of Age of Empires and Hegemony? Will wait for some reviews, but I guess this one will have a hard time with AoE4 just around the corner.

Released today! 9.99! Kind of a no-brainer.

I'm concerned it is going to run like crap on a modern system and not hold up well.

I'll wait to hear from our resident expert.

I foolishly bought a magazine yesterday for $9.99 that I already have. I'm using that needless extra expense as a justification for holding off on this purchase. So far, it is having the intended psychological effect.

One thing, appears to be locked in at 1920x1080 resolution as being the highest although the screen looks serviceable.  For $9, worth dabbling with it, likely won't be something I spend a lot of time with.

I feel a strong unreasonable affinity for this one. I think I could love it, long time.
