Fascinating fundamental mechanics that prize political maneuvers over action.
It's satisfying to pull off sneaky strategies.
Very interesting deception and diplomacy mechanics.
Good multiplayer skirmish mode.
Emphasizes deception over combat.
Tons of series backstory.
Potential for neat strategies.
Poor singleplayer campaign.
Combat is a mess.
Lacking interface and automation features that could have made it more fun.
Dull graphics, frustratingly unresponsive controls.
Incredibly slow pace.
