This doesn't remind of Gold Box games at all, it looks much more like Final Fantasy Tactics or Tactics Ogre: LUCT to me. You move your party from one battle map to the next and have the opportunity to go shopping for better gear (etc.) once in awhile, plus there's dialogue scenes sprinkled in between to explain the plot, just like in those games. There's nothing wrong with this approach, mind you, but comparing it to GB games where you had complete freedom to explore as you saw fit, seems a bit off to me.
That said, I'm cautiously hopeful about Blackguards and will keep a close eye on it for sure. Here's hoping they don't go overboard with that "grimdark" story of theirs. The consant boasting about their mature and "oh so dark" story is starting to become irritating (and a bit embarassing).
