"as well as 2-to-6 player multiplayer with support for hotseat play (i.e. you and your friends playing together in the same room, Super Smash Brothers style)."
That's more or less a lie. Smash Brothers is NOT hotseat, and hotseat is NOT Smash Brothers.
I'm out on this. I adore strategy, I hate tactics. What's the difference? Hard to say, and maybe this game fits my definition because it's turn based, but while I love things like X-COM I hated things like Freedom Force.
