I really wanted to like this before when i only had a 4S and no ipad yet, but the controls (tap recognition) is horrible. It has been in my computer, but sadly i have never tried installing it on the ipads that i have and had.

And now that XCom, Warhammer Quest and FFT rehash are permanently docked inside my ipad mini, i dont find any reason to install this one.

As for the game itself, it had potential, but i had controls issues with my 4S playing this before.

Yeah - the only reason I kept with it was the story. Now that so many great strategy games have come out since, it's hard to justify having this one take up space on my device.

Then again... if they added widescreen support and tweaked the UI a bit, I'd be all over it again. =oP

So not worth it? I love(craft), but can't really stand games like these if they are too slow.

I had exactly the same issues with the 4th gen touch really wanted to love it but the controls just didn't work properly
