Archon

Archon

As a fan of the original¬†Archon, by Electronic Arts, I was first delighted and then dismayed about this release. The original is a classic combination of strategy and tactics, which had the player battling Good versus Evil on a Chess-like board with a variety of pieces, each with their own special abilities. I think this title could have been resurrected, if it weren’t for several bad design choices and the overall sluggishness of combat. D-Pad or Accelerometer movement on the battle board…really? It just feels clunky and the projectiles are abysmally slow. No multiplayer?!? I’m done.
