    The core game was pretty crap, but this is looking a lot better.

    It’s really funny. I’m playing the campaign at the moment.

    Oddly enough playing with bots is somewhat more satisfying. The multiplayer whenever I’ve tried to get into it has been way too much like herding cats, and there are so many spots that just form avenues where people keep running in to get killed.

    Then there’s all the graphical awkwardness, the animations look pretty darn silly, but I’m sure it could work with better maps, and maybe people getting around to playing commander properly.

    I haven’t tried the multiplayer. I’m sure I will do soon. I just like the accents, really.

    Couldn’t agree more. Still a fun game to go back to here and there. There are some game breaking bugs though in the campaign. I’m stuck right now and might have to restart.
