What do these ratings mean?

An RTS with a different approach, GG (GrimGrimoire)is an awesome example of innovation
The cartoonish graphics is eye candy enough in thois world of HD gaming.
Very anime influenced art style combined with gorgeous fight scenes

The gameplay is simple and fun
Fairies attack, Elves mine
However later in the game when things get messy, and u really need to check on ur units, it starts getting painfull.Scrolling through the map at a slow pace gets irritating. However,when u look at this way, its the best option.We cant possibly have a mini map in the already insufficient viewing space

The bookcase system is sweet and u can choose the chapters u wanna play
One thing if i would like to point out is that GG is a really really long game. Its the length of the  missions that can get to ur nerves. Some missions can take almost an hour. U can play at your own pace. For me, i like to relax,buff up my army and see beautifull battles unfold.

People with less time, or people who want a quicky game will be upset.There is no save game mid battle and u really need to spare some time for this game as the play sessions are rather long

Another gripe- I was totally relying on trial and error.What can i do, my grimiores were weak against the enemy and i had made the wrong variety of grimoires. I  didn't use the correct grimoire or the correct formation of turrets.U can go on trial and error dusk to dawn.

All in all, GG is a fun game. Although i have yet to finish it, i prefer taking my sweet time :)
