Screenshots never do 3DS games nor video, that said I still love the look of this game.

Way to fuck up your embed, loser.

And it's Intelligent Systems and turn based strategy. I will definitely buy this.

In this game, Abraham Lincoln fights aliens. That's all I need.

Yeah, this looks good. I hate to admit I was hoping for one thing or another with this big 3DS reveal, but in the end this may have been better.

The story has a Wonderful 101 feel to it. Gameplay reminds me of Valkyria Chronicles a little bit. Maybe some Loadout thrown in. And yeah, Intelligent Systems. So my interest is definitely piqued.

Looks like Freedom Force and Valkyria Chronicles had a kid.

So this game has been out in the Americas for 11 days already. Did anyone here get it and if so, what is your opinion/review?

I haven't played it, but I also have not heard very good things. At all.

So I finally got around to buying it after being in Germany for a while, and beat it in a few days.

It's a great game. The beginning was a bit rough because you only have John and Henry to kick ass with, but once your team expands you'll be killing aliens left and right without even breaking a sweat. Especially once you get Califia and Fox. They are so awesome like holy shit. All the characters are really useful too. Well, except for Dorothy, I never found a use for her unfortunately. And she looked so cute too.

The comicbook style was a breath of fresh air after all the effiminate (and oh so slashable ) anime men I had on my 3DS screen lately XD. The voiceacting was really good too. When the trailers first got out I heard a lot of people bitch about the guy who does Abe's voice, but he sounded just fine to me. Did he say something to piss the American crowd off or something?

The update downloded automatically when I first started the game, so the long enemy turns weren't a problem for me. You still have to wait a bit, but the horrorstories of waiting for like two minutes was not a thing. Mostly 20 seconds for me. It actually gave me a little extra time to adjust strategies and think over my next move.

Pro's:
Great characters (with useful skills)
Great voice acting
Great gameplay
That feeling you get when you gun down a humongous alien with a crithit
Some levels you get to use a cannon/tank
MECHA ABE LIKE OMG


Con's:
No overview map
No skipping enemy turns

Can't say anything about online play because I'm one of those people who doesn't do online play.

All in all I'd give it a 85 out of 100. The story is over and done the way it is, but there was a tiny hint after the ending that could lead into a sequel. It probably won't happen now that it bombed so bad, but a girl can dream! They can fix the problems and add more characters from other countries' folklore/literature.

tl;dr
It'll be worth your while. Get it on sale once that inevitably happens because it bombed so hard because people these days have no patience to wait :P.
