Sometimes even a niche game can be a system seller to certain people. Magazine preview pics made his a MUST own for me. It took me some time to nab a copy as I was a late adopter to the world of Sega.
A real time strategy/tactics game with a fun story, and great graphics (hold up even today). Large scale battles that are an amped up version of rock paper scissors. You chose from 8 different rulers, each with a distinct path/storyline, and predominant troop type.
This game BEGS for a re-release (yes it was re-released for the PS2 Sega Ages line, but stayed in Japan)....even if just a digital download. In my opinion, this would be a GREAT game on a portable system (3DS/PSP/Vita). Even better would be if we received a collection with a translated version of the sequel that never left japan.
COME ON SEGA, you aren't doing much else GOOD these days ;)
