Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
A very excellent game with great animation, a very fleshed out story, and an interesting approach to the Mana series. Although I beat it many times, on many difficulties, and even beat and ranked in the leader boards of the online play I have one giant issue with this game that ruined the whole experience.
It used a grid based movement system, and if you didn't constantly watch and monitor all your troops at all times it always led to units getting caught and running around in nonsensical orders or faster units getting caught behind slower ones and unable to move ahead. It's really apparent when moving units through doorways for example. The unit AI required a lot more polish. Aside from that, the game was great.
