<t>For $1.99, this is a pretty solid game, with a lot more polish than I expected at that price point, honestly. And, as the reviewer notes, there's a good AI behind this too, so there's some actual challenge. <br/> <br/> That said, the battles can tend to get a bit same-y in terms of strategic deci...

I believe Reigns: GoT also just got a huge influx of new cards and content--100 cards, I believe. $2.99 is a steal for this game, IMO.

Out There is also fantastic, not that everyone doesn't already know that : )

I'll offer a counterpoint to this review, which I don't think is a "bad" review, but I do think it misses some things that make this game -much- better than 2 stars. As a lifelong Fire Emblem fan, I will also state my potential bias--this game is a near-perfect homage to the old Fire Emblem games of...

<t>Wow, you aren't kidding about that Partia 3 app store description. I have never seen one that's so self-critical of their own game. It's rather refreshing, really. The developer makes it clear that it's just one guy doing a "labor of love" project that he doesn't expect to find much of an audienc...

Nice review, Matt, and +20 points for the Black Adder reference : )

As I was reading, I was genuinely thinking, "Is this asymmetric strategy?" and then my hopes were dashed.

<t>Thanks for the look behind the scenes, Joe : ) Your response was just the sort of discussion I was hoping would ensue. <br/> I think a lot of people are resistant to reviews of FTP games--not because we can play them our own selves and decide, but because FTP games are usually awful. And a review...

<t>Though this is sponsored, I didn't find the article offensive (aside from comparing itself to Fire Emblem!), and I'm curious to see how intrusive the IAPs are. I lost interest with FE:H after about an hour, and I love normal FE games. <br/> <br/> Are you planning to review this here, Joe? I won't...

<t>Great review, of a game I was not aware of and is perfectly suited for this site (and me)! <br/> <br/> I was sold on this game (neat idea and presentation) until I arrived at the sentence, "There is little opportunity to manage the content of your deck." Ummmm, why have a deck if you can't manage...
