I wouldn't even buy it for $5.99 on GOG.com...

If the game is much better than reviews say, they should release a demo to prove it. I would bet they know it's crap though.

Halo Wars worked well. They had to dumb it down, and a mouse would still be better, but at least it worked.

not sure about you, i'm not a big fan of dumbed down games.

Stategy games and RPG games really suffer from that

Oh I agree, and I haven't bought Halo Wars as it's not worth $60, but I'm just saying on a fundemental level they got it working on a console.

They tried to "revolutionize" how strategy games work on console and they completely and miserably failed.
