I don't agree. The game is extremely railroaded and poorly balanced. It is a weaker, boring version of Expedition: Conquistador.
It is fun first few hours until the novelty wears off, then you figure out how bad and empty this game is. It tries to play as some kind of survival game forcing you to make decisions between food, morale, renown and troops but if for instance you run out of food and people start dying in big numbers nothing really happens.... I even tried to get all my people to 0 and game continues and acts like you still have people.
So badly balanced... I won all fights and made decent decisions (which btw, results of those decisions are completely random, you cannot make an informed decision on any of them) judging by the results and still near the end of the game I ran out of supply and renown. Then then game does not give you new way to get renown but offers you to buy supplies with renown it didn't offer you (?!?!?!?), and completely ignores that your people are dying in big numbers and that you travel around with 0 supplies for days. It still offers you events where people either steal your supply (which you have 0) or you get to choose to use up some of your non-existing supply to get other benefits (which of course you do).
As I said, completely railroaded, 0 freedom game, even bad at illusion of choice. About half way where it kills again some of your characters that you invested shit load of renown to level in some completely random stupid event you completely stop caring and these later event that completely destroys the suspension of disbelief.
If I was you, I would not touch this game with a ten foot pole. As some other people said, the glowing reviews this game got clearly shows the reviewers only played the game for 2-3 hours and didn't get over the novelty part..
The only real result of decision in the game that matters is the end of the game, where it punishes you by your troops not being able to kill the last boss due to lack of properly leveled troops and enough soldiers that survived the trip. So basically it does not let you even finish the game and you need to start over now with knowledge of what random choice results in what outcome and metagame the game to have fun... no thanks. I didn't even get to the end, I read this last part from others poor fools who didn't quit in time like me.
