It reminds me of an old school warcraft 3 (not the story of course) but the play style you have a hero, and you play a dumbed down RTS system with units and buildings.. All in all pretty fun. What it lacks for in building up bases, it makes up for in a cool and somewhat in depth tech tree for units and your hero. Different abilities and stances for units makes a welcomed change to your rock paper shotgun Rts style of play. Overall I'd say a 6.5 outta 10 if your into RTS its on the lighter side. (Dont have to be a micro macro super giant)

Frozen Hearth is the Dark Souls of the RTS genre: damn challenging, at times infuriating, but rewarding to the persistent multi-tasking player. It's a shame there wasn't a bit more spit and polish before final release, because when Frozen Hearth isn't distracting you with oddities or omissions, it's actually a rewarding experience.
