Looks interesting.  Are you going to write a review?

Well, I did get it given the stellar reviews it had. A new genre for me since I haven't tried anything like this since the first AOE. Everything seems to happen so fast.  :)

I think the learning curve is going to be bigger for me being somewhat new to this genre.

The onscreen help text is a little small (for older eyes), but then once you learn the icons, you don't really need that.  (iPad2; so one could expect some additional crispness on the iPad3)

In the forums, the lack of a manual was criticized.  I, also, would have appreciated a well written PDF, but the idea is that the first steps in the campaign act as a tutorial.

So far, so good.

One other irritation, from the a PC, access to the forums require a social networking account.  However, you can get into them directory from the game/iPad.

Still working on the single player campaign. I think WEGO games. Are more my thing. Or pausable RTS. I tried one online game. It reminded me a lot of C&C Red Alert.

There was a new update today, but I haven't looked to see what's in it.  I have to check the release notes later.

Some good improvements:

* Greater zoom so you can actually see the combat.

* Some more informative messages.

* A novice mode to help noobs like me.

It isn't bad but I prefer Time of Heroes and Ravenmark.
