Actually, I do agree with them.
BoA 1 has always been the best game to discover our engine. Its mechanisms are simple and elegant.
With BoA, you can get use to the User interface, learn most of the combat engine, the movement, etc.
WIA enjoys the same simplicity, but mixes it with some of the best improvements coming from AACW and NCP, and brings brings some brand new and inovative features.
The gameplay is really smooth, Athena has never been more vicious, I have enjoyed very much beta testing this game, and I know it'll be becoming better and better.
Nice work Hok!
