Nostalgia, as some wag once noted, is the most dangerous drug. All too often sepia-toned memories get shattered when one tries to revisit the object of affection (ask anyone who still listens to music from the '80s).

Fun strategic and RPG portions; attractive graphics; feels like a faithful update.
No guarantee that strategic balance or enemy AI will be up to snuff.
