This game is addictive. Seriously. At first it does seem a bit auckward and limited in troop sending, but if the thrill of being the ultimate bad guy, stealing souls, killing baby seals and generally rampaging through the coutnryside appeals, then thsi title is for you.
The biggest negative to this title is the pixelation of the graphics. Even at its highest settings, the graphics are lacking a bit.
That said, the title is just fun and while it can take some time to get to the action, thsi combination hack and slash and RPG explorer is pretty sweet. Upgrading your weapons, armour and controlling villagers to do you bidding is just too much fun.
