Yes, it's obviously very early, but the DRM uses some encryption that revolves around making thousands of read-writes per second.

I agree with CGO. The game grew on me enormously once I realize just how subtly it reacted to you and just how much attention to little tiny detail there was. The art direction/atmosphere is 11/10…

Because it's better than real time without pause, as 99% of games are these days?

Also, once you have your orders you can unpause and watch a pretty quick fight that looks realistic. Pure turn…

If you slap a '2' on a title it's hard to judge it on its own merits.

The main one seems to be missing - separation of player skill vs character skill, unless that's implied in 'character creation & customization'. All the other points are present in pure non-RPGs.
