It has been released in the last week out of 1C in Russia.
Graphics are excellent, engine is solid (though with a few crashes).
The problem with the game I find is that it might have been a nice wargame, but somewhere got turned into a TB Puzzle Game. The game is hard, even on 'Normal', and you have to get everything just right, or there is no point in continuing.
To me it epitomizes the problem of Load/Save carried to the extreme (as opposed to Save&Quit). The game balance becomes so hard, because it is just assumed that you are going to load and save multiple times to get anything done.
If Elemental has graphics as good as EL, it will be terrific. The gameplay is solid, that is the mechanics work, but because it ends up as a puzzle game, not a wargame, there is no way to keep playing it and keep the interest up. Just play through once (with many reloads) then shelve it.
Any other thoughts?
