Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good selection of areas to play in
There are 8 different nations that the player can choose to lead to victory, each with their own different looking areas to explore. This makes for a good mix of differentiation of play depending on what the player chooses to use.
Pro Wide selection of missions
Players will see many different missions ranging from rescue missions to defensive missions. What is even better is that many of these types of missions will be mixed together into one, so there is a varying structure to each making for a different feeling to each.
Con Strategy is highly lacking
Especially in multi player, AO3 rapidly becomes a game of "build a maximum army and face the enemies maximum army, then start over". There are some things to try to make the game more strategic, but nothing much. For example, terain does nothing exept determine what types of units can pass, so placing you units on higher ground does not affect there range, and forests do not decrease accuracy and vision range/detectability.
Con Could use better sound cues
Keeping track of ones units can become a difficult job (but a fun one) and having audio cues of when something is happening to your units could greatly help in this area, sadly there is very little of this in the game and could have been utilized better.
