It isn't too bad for minis but the tokens can be a little bit of an issue. I find that a couple of us tend to stand periodically during any game we are playing with any amount of strategy and tactics...especially with board management, though.
I find the aesthetic greatly makes up for that one and only downfall. I also feel the same way about our d&d games, though, which I know some people don't agree with.
Maybe try putting the tokens on standees or something else that raises it for easier viewing.
