Summary: At its reduced price, Culdcept Saga is a bargain for those looking for a unique spin on a board game or CCG variant.
Pros: I've been a fan of Culdcept since the original on the Sega Saturn, and the overall game hasn't changed much since, which is a good thing. Players take turns conquering estates and defending their territory. Assemble a deck of 50 cards and battle against up to three other players. A unique aspect ...
Cons: Cards are only earned via battling, leading to repeated playing of easier matches to "farm" cards to build one's deck. The story is dumb, and, though it's the gameplay that makes Culdcept such a great series, you'll still have to sit through some awfully hokey dialogue to advance through the game...
Summary: Played the first one for the Playstation, so when this one came out i had to buy it. I dont care how good you get or how many cards you have. The game will match you. If you like a challenge and monopoly..this game is a great addition for your video game collection.
Take one part Monopoly and one part Magic the Gathering and all parts awesome.

Summary: Culdcept Saga is a weird idea but done right. Tons of cards, long Single-player campaign with helpful tutorials to suck you in, and endless amounts of online battles with friends and random people Via Xbox live.
An opinion from someone who likes Magic the gathering.

Summary: I'll keep this short and simple. Good strategy, but not very much like Magic. The creatures die fast in this game, unless you have plenty of item cards to make them stronger. Or their HP gets low and you have to switch them out for a different creature in your hand, so you can keep the property you...
Summary: I got a copy of Culdcept and can not put it down. The game is a mixture of board games and trading card games. I never really liked trading card games as a kid, but for some reason the concept really grows on me here. I have played about 4 hours so far, including some multiplayer.
Summary: It's already been said. The strategy and luck of a trading card game (like Magic the Gathering and Yugioh) and the strategy and luck of a board game like Monopoly come together to create an enjoyable playing experience that everyone should try at least once.
Summary: It's a simple game to learn. The artwork on the cards is great. My wife and I have spent a couple hundred hours playing this game and still enjoy it. The game is a great choice for the 'casual' player. No shooting, no need for fast reflexes, just sit back and have fun with an animated board game.
Summary: I found this game fairly easy to master. Once you have a core deck it was easy to change a few cards (if you want) to dominate this game. I didn't collect all the cards and didn't feel like I needed to. Some of the battles take hours, which could be a problem.
