Because I love the gamerscore and tend to play a lot of older titles to boost it a bit, I figured I'd offer my two cents on this game. While it wasn't a horrible game, it lacked a lot of imagination and had way too much repetitiveness. I had decided to even follow a walkthrough and while the walkthrough was helpful it didn't save me any grief. Plainly put, the game has you complete 5 scenarios in which you need to take over 25 countries or leaders to win the scenario. In doing this, you also have to hire on officers (250 of them to be exact) and aren't really able to do so until the final mission. On top of that, you need to manually put all officers you can on the map causing the "Gathering of Heroes" to take longer to set up than it would to play through.

In defense of the game, I really didn't know what I was doing at first and could've made things a lot more efficient but still... 25 areas times 5 scenarios makes for a very long 1000g. The bonus is that you could basically play the game on Novice.

Overall I would say it took me longer than the TA estimate of 5-10 hours but I could've done a lot better. Unfortunately I'll never get that 10+ back. If you aren't looking to add some gamerscore in an easy but boring, repetitive game I would stay away from this one.

Next up, Dynasty Warriors 6... (someone shoot me)

Haven't played a dynasty warrior game in years... Used to love them. Was it fun, achievements aside.

It was fun for maybe the first scenario but then was just too much repetition. I don't really have anything to compare it to though.

I shall heed your wise words!
sometimes that easy score = easy skill level (I like) + hard time usage and regret (I don't like)
I will keep looking for that easy score but will try to  ensure I'm also enjoying the ride ....such as Rango, & Capt. America   etc...
...
I'll keep you informed as I'm sure I'll be playing many more "easy" games.

Freaky, you and I can be the ones to warn others about some of the crap we've been playing. Every once in awhile we'll find a good game though... for me, it was Green Lantern.
