Vanguard - Review @ Strategy Informer
Vanguard has been reviewed at Strategy Informer, receiving the lukewarm score of 6.4/10 despite the fairly favourable text in the article:
One of my favourite skills in Vanguard is the diplomacy system. Fame systems in most games are usually very simple and are just simple 'do quests til person likes me' type affairs. With the diplomacy system this gets taken a step further. With the diplomacy system of cards you are a little more involved. In essence it is as close as I've seen to real time conversation with an NPC in a game. The card system is easy to understand and it's possible to get additional cards to broaden your 'deck'.
