@Sparky_Buzzsaw: Yeah, I figured it didn't get better in the... half hour more that you played. They tricked me into buying it by name dropping Fire Emblem and Heroes of Might and Magic, but it honestly doesn't reflect either of those games. Apparently the sequel is worse, if 7 reviews are to be taken seriously. Oh well. I hope The Banner Saga is a good kind of those games, and if not at least I can admire the art style.
