Video Game Skulls of the Shogun (PC) (2013)

Skulls of the Shogun is a turn-based strategy game with free movement.

Push enemies off the edge of the map.
Today I played this game for 30 minutes.

+ My first half hour with the game left a good impression, with the game feeling fun
+ Decent artwork

~ Free-roam nature; I like the rigid nature of grid-based strategy games like Advance Wars (GBA) (2001) and Final Fantasy Tactics.

- Though fun, the game lacked a strong appeal

With only half an hour of gameplay, my first impression is that Skulls of the Shogun is a decent turn-based strategy game.

While definitely not the top of its genre, it's probably worth playing if you own it. Personally, I would sooner replay Advance Wars*.

*Actually I still haven't played my copy of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (GCN) (2001), but I don't have my GameCube with me.
