Any you play this here?

Is it fun single/multi? I've been on the fence, but don't know much about it.

I think it's pretty decent. It's got 3 levels of gameplay where you go from a boardgame deal like playing Risk, into a standard RTS, and lastly can jump in with a jet powered dragon in third person to give you an edge in battles.
I haven't played anyone in multilayer yet so I can't comment on that. I'm eager to try MP though since enemy ai in single player mode never uses dragons and it can feel like cheating when I use it.
The politics in the story campaign can be unintentionally comical, so there's that.

The layered approach sounds interesting, given that it's mechanically decent. The risk and rts mode sounds interesting. Is it possible to ramp up the difficultly? I don't like the sound of betting op by default in battle mode. Otherwise I like the setting. Is the politics dumb or just amusing from time to time. Sorry about all these questions, you don't have to answer if it's a bother.

it's got bugs up the ass.
Bugs would range from being unable to produce units as the progress bar would go on forever. being unable to use unit's ablitys, units not responding to any orders, units not attacking other units but instead just running up to them for hugs or some shit. seage tank style units getting stuck half way into the ground which cuased them to damnage themselfs when firing. matchs that didn't even end after dystroying every enemy/base and not ending till I cap their zones even when nothing is built there.

I personally play the game on the hardest difficulty and avoid using the dragon as much as I can yet it's only a challenge at the start of matches. it could be becuase it's my play style but if/when I get past the first few attacks I can establish decent defenses and wait the enemies out. The AI can be predictable and easy to exploit. Even on hard mode it's not uncommon for ai to randomly become inactive for no visible strategic reason.

The politics can be odd and silly. The game has representatives from the five factions representing religions community, environmentalist, corporation/bankers, science community and the more intellectual minded. You have to approve or disapprove matters they bring to your attention and it effects your popularity with the factions. At first they brought up things such as issuing military drafts, but they started to get silly and almost random ranging from allowing breast feeding, to lobotomizing/castrating workers. The game also seems to have something of an agenda, since the game has two female commanders and of them one is an extreme feminist and the other is a lesbian struggling for acceptance.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. It's appreciated. Too bad, the game doesn't look very good from your telling.

To be fair, most of those bugs only pop up after extended play sessions and I haven't had most of the same bugs pop up again after they've gone away the first time. Units hurting themselves for instance only happened on one map so far.
