TouchArcade: 'Swords Of Anima' Review - An Approachable Strategy RPG That Plays By The Books

TouchArcade: I've been reviewing games for more than 15 years now, and one of the things that is still sometimes hard for me to sort out is how much value to place on creativity, or I suppose, how harshly I should criticize a game that lacks it. I don't think every game needs to reinvent the wheel, but I also think it's important that some games do strive to do new things.
