@lim_ak: I think the OP is exactly right about the lack of longetivity for this game at this point. I've put several hours into it at this point, and cannot shake the feeling that I've basically seen what the game has to offer. I've also realized just why it was only 19.99, and not the prize of the standard Paradox title. In truth, I cannot tell you that it is a better game than the 1994 classic, Masters of Magic. Hopefully it will do well enough to see some DLC love in the future. One thing they absolutely need to add is a hall of fame list, but paradox has never included that in their games, and isn't likely to begin now.
