A nice little game. New comers to the game will take a bit of time to get used to the different combinations of animals available and what strengths and weaknesses they bring to your army. But it is fun learning. I would suggest one or two quick goes at a single game against the pc to get a rough idea of it all, then doing the campaign, especially if you have played games like Starcraft or Age Of Empires. This helps to bring focus to the plusses and minuses that the hybrid creatures you create have and how it affects you winning and losing. Mixing two big animals may give you strength and health say, but be weak in speed or sight range etc. I am sure that you will enjoy the game and it doesn't take a ‘rocket scientist’ to master game controls. Story line is not too bad either. Cinematics are a bit above par for this age of game.
