I downloaded and played the demo. I have an issue with the graphics (unit
sprites five times the size of the hex they are in which causes all the
sprites to overlap so much that you can't select individual units or see
what the bleep is going on) and a severe lack of explanation of the UI and
game mechanics. Might be worth getting _IF_ it comes with a detailed manual
but no one responded when I asked a few weeks ago.

It has a VERY detailed, if not totally complete manual, and is pretty good.
Once they get some of the flaws
worked out, it will be very good indeed.

What flaws are you referring to?

They need to tweak the military aspect. Units are battalions and there's
been some talk of using
"container" units to form brigades, divisions, etc. The system works well,
just a little too micro-
management for my taste.

Also the AI needs to be tweaked, some user interface issues cleared up, etc.

It's a very good game, if they fix the usual bugs, it will be outstanding.

Well, going by the demo I'd say their biggest UI issue is the hugely
oversized unit sprites.

OT: Wow, it's the first time for at least ten years, that I see the word
"sprite" and it's not a lemonade or a fairy tale creature ;)

Cheers

(OP) - Thanks for all the info. I got the demo but haven't had time to
look at it, but based on your opinions I think I will probably wait
for the first patch, if I like the demo.

Thanks, again
