It's a great game. Avery's done a nice job. O0

On a good day, our legislature has the prestige of a drunk urinating on a wall at 4am and getting most of it on his shoe. On a good day  ::) Steelgrave

It's kind of silly to investigate whether or not a Clinton is lying. That's sort of like investigating why the sky is blue. Banzai_Cat

Nice! 

I hope, though, that you've enjoyed FE:LH at least reasonably well, airboy.  I'd hate to think you'd devoted 70+ hours to a game you didn't like simply for the sake of being thorough in your review.  :-\

Time spent on this was a combination of being hurt & in a lot of pain out of work plus a great game.  I've found that if I'm on pain meds or hurting a lot, that playing a PC game can take my mind off of it better.  [I'm fine. Very weird, painful injury].

My overall review ended up running 12 single spaced, typed pages.  Part one is only pages 1-4.  The game had some very unique elements worked into a 4x game format that took some level of explaining to get across.

Wow.  I'd say airboy enjoys FE:LH even more than I do (and that's saying something)!

^  Yeah, I meant to comment on that as well. 


I wholeheartedly agree.  I realize FE:LH doesn't do it for everyone, of course.  But if there's if any one fantasy-strategy title released in the last year or two that deserves the distinction, it's definitely this one IMHO.
