the demo was great fun...haven't got around to buying it yet...

So how easy is it to manage all of your assets? does it get overwhelming...I think i'd get frustrated if it got too overwhelming...

I might go pick it up today after class...

Which villain did you choose?

managing assets isnt quite what you are used to un normal rts's. the only thing i needed to get the hang of was keeping an eye on my people that were out in the world doing things.. they kept getting killed.. i dont want to say too much, but the trick is hiding when the time is right. i chose max, cause of his technology stuff that it said. i tried it a little with the female but her henchman didnt do anything for me. Max's henchman kicks people's butts.

I'm pretty impressed with it. I just find that sometimes my minions are unresponsive, and just take too long to get things done. It's very much like Dungeon Keeper, but fails to best it in most aspects. I love the 60's NOLF feel though!
