Well, I was really looking forward to this game. It seemed to be a console style Turn Based Strategy/RPG game adapted properly to the Western and PC markets (almost like a cross of those games with Magic: The Gathering or Warhammer). All the previews, interviews and general press sounded great.
However, the public beta currently released (Fileplanet subscribers only for the first few days) has shown there are many issues. The game is apparently nowhere near complete and there are petitions online from fans trying to convince Ubisoft to give more development time to Nival (the creators) as certain issues cannot be resolved in the short remaining time until release (players feel the battle grounds are too small not leaving enough room for strategy).
I love Ubisoft for bringing out games like Prince of Persia and Beyond Good & Evil but at the same time they ruined series like Rainbow Six (turning the latest into a Counter-Strike wannabe).
I guess I don’t have a point or question, I just wanted to share this
