Reprisal is as addicting as it is shallow. Both attributes are blatantly prominent in this simple RTS. Even though it has as little depth, the game had a surprisingly tight grasp on my attention while the campaign lasted. I liked it, but cannot rate it higher than 5 out of 10 due to the bland gameplay. Graphics are equally bland, but I did not deduct any points for this because the retro-style actually adds to the charm of the game. The main fault of the gameplay is the fact that the strategy for each level in the campaign never deviates from "flatten as much land as possible to create as many castles as possible, then attack." The game has no draw to bring me back; Reprisal simply has no staying power. I can only recommend this game for an addicting but short-lived casual RTS experience.
