This game isn't the only one of its kind, that is for certain, but its one of the first. Its a tactical RPG, similar in style to the Fire Emblem and Advance Wars games. It shares with Advance Wars that your commanders have troops underneath of them, while it shares a general genre with Fire Emblem, a medieval, swords and magic, monsters and dragons kind of deal. The game carries with it a hidden sort of humor . . . watching your tiny insignificant troops die in flames can be very amusing, but other than that, it lacks much in game humor. I learned how to play the game by watching my friend play it, I found it very interesting to observe.
