I think that a big issue with it was the over hype. If it hadn’t have had Sid Meier’s bañe attached to it, it probably would’ve been ok, but with that name people expected greatness.
I mostly found it very repetitive and one dimensional in the battles. It didn’t grab me from the get go, and I guess I was just pretty disappointed in what could have been a great game turned out to be.
Haven’t played in some time so hard to point to specifics, truth be told.
