Great price. I'd nab it in a second if the setting interested me. Loved the setting of Samurai Bloodshow, though.

Noticed they dropped the price of the Total War game, I'm guessing for the launch of this game, but even $5 is more than what I'm willing to pay for it.

Game Impressions

Nice. For those intimidated by the depth of Assassin's Creed: Recollection, but still in the mood for a realtime trading-card game, this could probably be a nice compromise, and for those looking for a light multiplayer RTS, but with a sense of progression and illusion of achievement, Alexandria Bloodshow offers quite a lot of card-collecting and army-building to complement the actual matches.

As far as I can tell, you can acquire all Egyptian cards just by playing. You do have to purhcase the full unlock for a dollar for the Greek army, but I think that can be seen more as an expansion than an IAP wall (especially since you still have to acquire the greek cards by playing, and the Greeks seem to offer no particular advantage over Egyptian players in online games, just a different playing style).
