I have had this game for a while now, so I feel like I can give a balanced response.
Simply put, if you like strategy games and you like the franchise then you will like this game. The AI has come on leaps and bounds. We are not at Skynet level quite yet as some might wish but given the context of other games out now, you can't really blame it.
The gameplay is fun and engrossing. There is no feeling quite like winning a key battle against the odds, and you certainly do not always win these battles. Similarly, there is no feeling quite like an enemy landing an army on your shore as you scramble to amass a defence.
I won't harp on, but really for £7-8, this is a real no-brainer.
