Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
The number and uniqueness of the factions and units is astounding; best of any Turn-based-strategy game I've ever played. It took me a long time to try out all the factions and each one was a unique and engaging experience. The game does have a fairly steep learning curve and is unforgiving at first, but the rewards of doing well are worth the effort. I love the fact that you can customize your wizard. Completely stable on my computer.
