This game might be ok for fans of the original Settlers who want a 2-player experience. In comparison to other card games, say RftG, Dominion or Glory to Rome, this one fares badly. Too long for what it is, little interaction and a bland theme.
each time I play this my dislike grows. A potential 8 after the first game, it is now down to a 5.5 Eclipse encourages exploration. It also encourages defensive play and the whole VP-system is just annoying.
All GW fuzz aside: it just is not that good of a game. Sure, components are great and the underlying theme could work if supported by a decent game. Truth is, the game is not broken but not working very well either. Two dice rolls can doom you and I wonder who decided that corridors necessarily have to be that narrow. Tactics don't win you the day and are usually so obvious that it is rather pointless to try different approaches.
