A boring grind.

At best, the game mechanic was unoriginal, buggy, and static. The game was just rehash of the previous epic war games, and this sequel failed to address the major problems of its predecessors. I found the battles tediously boring and easy. Waiting for a bunch of troops to line up is not the best way to spend an evening. The graphics were bland and reused, and the animations were without effort. The plot was bland, unmotivating, and nearly nonexistent; aside from the advocacy of war. I didn't understand the necessity to have both a 'retreat' and 'fall back' button, or the 'march' and 'assault' commands. To me, I could not detect any major differences. I also noticed that the commands would often fail to respond.

The most off-putting detail of this game was the blatant glorification of war and militarism. While I do not mind a game with violence, the political messages were disturbing and unwarranted. As far as I could tell, the object of the game was to go smash an "oppressive" force that had the ability to put an end to the rabid militarism of the land, and the player's character is too committed to bloodshed because "War is life."

I would like to have seen a major effort in improvements to the gameplay. Make it more streamlined, less grind-y, and utilize strategy. Add another gameplay dynamic besides "make guys and send guys forward." Fix the command buttons. And most of all, remove the political overtones.

Much appreciated.

Wonderful game

It didn't fill up with units as much and as quickly as the last one but do I have one single complaint, and that it is that you have to GRIND on the levels over and over again to improve your units and skills just to push a little bit ahead. And even though it's somewhat expected, I just cannot relate to it. Otherwise, awesome.

Truly Epic

I've liked the whole series, but how exactly does this title attain "true epicness"?

The game itself isn't... perfect. Though it is fun, it certain isn't the BEST DAMN FLASH I'VE EVER PLAYED.

The reason this flash is epic, is the fact that the series keeps getting progressively better, not just in graphics and interface, but more enjoyable to *play*. That's something very few flash producers have been able to master.

I mean, taking out the "arrow canon" from the early games seems obvious, but I imagine that decision came from feedback.

Overall, I'm very impressed, still playing, and all my "5" are belong to your flash.

*PS, I miss the character cards. They were really excellent art, and made the game feel more... RPGish. That's only a minor complaint.

....wtf....

I made it to the bonus level with the black goblin that hits for 15k damage and was about to win when all of a sudden the game glitches the box turns white with a black exclamation point in it. Nothing happened so I hit refresh. All my data is gone... I am more than a bit upset to say the least. I blew the last few hours of my life on this game just to have it glitch on me. WAS a fun game, until now whence I am thoroughly enraged. Fix whatever bug caused this please...
