Takes the fun out of games

Ok let me begin by saying I was really addicted to this game when I started playing it and gettting the hang of how things operated. However that addiction was met with a punishing AI and difficulty that is just too much. Since this was my first run I put it on what they call "easy" but it wasn't long before I realized that the developers never understood the concept of "easy". It may have just been coincidence but it seems once the game notices the player getting comfortable and having an upper hand then it throws twice as much challenge right back. If you are a glutton for punishment then this is for you but as far as I'm concerned it takes the fun out of playing.

I give this game a 5/10 for overly difficult settings even on "easy" and for limiting player appeal by discouraging the new or casual gamers.

By far one of the most compelling games I have played in a long time. Very punishing even on easy. Save a lot and if you love tactics and a fairly good story this will definitely satisfy.
