Just to leave also my opinion here, I like strategy games (I love Advance Wars), and I'm bad at them (well, it's better to admit it...). There are several missions in the campaign that I really don't know how to beat without lowering the difficulty. I understand that the game is difficult for completely newbies -but you literally set the an adequate difficulty for you, no matter what. Okay, you don't get a lot of stars then, but after you finish the campaing, you should try again some missions, do some arcade play and a pair of puzzles and try again. I'm sure you get better as you play and you get increase your star rating in a second try. However, I agree with you in two points: one, some maps are too long. Faster movement for units should make it better, but when you lose after an hour is tiring, I have to admit it. Second, you should be able to still get rank A or B (two stars at least!!) if you only lower the difficulty a bit. I mean, your max rank should depend on how easy you put it. If I increase the groove, income and strength to maximum probably I do not deserve even one star xD But if I simply increase a bit my income, maybe I still deserve getting a pair of stars. But, in general, I like the overall concept design, enjoyed the challenging difficulty, and appreciated the possibility to ridiscously overpower me when I was sure I was not able to beat the map.
