Fans of what games would like this one. I'm looking into getting it at my FLGS as they have a sale today but before spending all that money on the game I'm just curious as to what games this one closely resembles. Thanks guys.

I believe this is best compared to Chaos in the Old World.

Both lean towards euro a lot, but they have an ameritrash aftertaste.

I lean a lot more towards ameritrash, but Blood Rage, Chaos in the Old World and Kemet are my kind of euro games.

I own Kemet and love it so Blood Rage would suit my taste then?

I would think so.

I own both games, but prefer Blood Rage mainly because the tiles tend to get AP prone players in knots, whereas the draft is a bit more straight forward.

Exactly this.

Blood rage combat is similar to kemet with combat modifying cards and sneaky ways to use them. Its also easy to cross the map in a single action. I enjoy blood rage more as its less AP prone and plays much faster (in my group).

Kemet is the better comparison. This game shares very little with Chaos in the Old World.

I sort of got the feeling that this reminded me of a more complex version of Smallworld.
The battle mechanics and the figurers reminded me of Dungeonquest.

I think it has more in common with Kemet and Cyclades.

Definitely a Kemet style game with its own flavor though. I own both and am glad I do.

Actually, Midgard is the best comparison.

Some tweaks and additions. I do not know what was tweaked or updated (aside from the playing pieces and expansions).

I feel there is a little bit of Cosmic Encounter mixed in there.
