Hi, I didnt follow FE development closely (after the disapointment with WOM) so I didnt know what to expect. I have seen few screenshots, but they look kinda similar to how I remembered WOM. God, I was so wrong
Unfortunatelly I hadnt much time to properly "play test", but the first impression is excellent! It starts with the excellently done menu, the UI feels exactly as it should feel - helpful and not obstructing or limiting. The amount of polish is really considerable! I guess there is still lot of work to do balance wise etc, but to me the game already is enjoyable!
What I really feel as something which makes the game to stand out is the world. It really is interestingly hostile! Especially variability of creatures etc. Oh, and did I mention perks for units/heroes? Everything feels more ... unique.
It was interesting to see how the satisfaction poll develobed over the time tho. It started at 70 per cent excellent. Now is at 50. It seems that first impression might be the best part of the game so far... but you guys have revived my faith in you that you will be able to make an excellent game this time
I must mention my personal issue tho -the cities... same problem as in WOM... making tham snakey makes movement too effective and it feels really gamey... Also I hope that they wont be covering half of the map in late game...
