|Dragonshard: Great game, shame about the name|

There's been a recent stream of quality real time strategy games masquerading as clones. Armies of Exigo and Act of War looked very much like Warcraft and Command & Conquer: Generals, respectively. And although they were both very good, they nevertheless played like their inspirations.
So at first glance, you might think Dragonshard is another Warcraft rip-off game that might also happen to be good. But you'd be wrong on both counts. Dragonshard, which has only a few incidentals in common with Warcraft III, is no clone. And it isn't good. It's great.
Yeah, I know, if you had a nickel for every time you heard that. Believe me, I'm as surprised as you are. You can read my 4 1/2 star Yahoo review here.
