Longer Review: The game is played by 2-5 players in which you each control a Planeswalker and two squads of creatures. Scenarios are included, but the easiest way to play this is "death match," in which you play until you are the last player standing. The game has elements of luck (dice control attack and defense, cards are drawn) but mostly strategy. With Glyphs and a few pieces of topography, as well as a somewhat customizable playing board, you can get a lot of mileage out of this game. A 1v1 game will last 30-45 minutes; 3 players may reach 70 min, 4 players 110 mins, 5 players can reach almost 150 mins.
If you have Heroscape, this game is quite compatible. The hill tiles in AoP are simply Heroscape tiles, so feel free to throw in some land hexes from Heroscape to add to the customization. I would ditch the cardboard walls for Heroscape's Ruin Walls and throw some 7-hex tiles in. Similarly, the dice are Heroscape, the mechanics are Heroscape, etc. I haven't tried adding Heroscape armies into this game, however, so there may be some balancing issues you may encounter, especially since the AoP armies are balanced with the summoning and enchantments in mind. If you're a huge Heroscaper looking for a fix, this will do it, but be warned that this game does not use Order Markers. Personally I never used Order Markers; in AoP (and in my Heroscape games) you pick your Army Card each round at the start of your turn. Additionally, you have to summon your creatures (2 figures per turn) in a manner similar to Iskra and the Rechets, and if your Planeswalker is still alive you can use a deck of spell cards to swing the game in your favor. The final difference between Heroscape and AoP is that some of the USquads have health, and the damage counters are placed on the base of the figure. Otherwise, everything is the same. Line of Sight, Height Advantage, Climbing, Water, Engagement, everything.
If you've never played Heroscape, it's still fun, but Heroscapers will get the most out of this.
I am very happy with this purchase, the miniatures are maybe not all the highest quality out there but the main figure details are very sharp. My only complaint is the painting done on the main figures is not a good as it could be, it's serviceable but not great. For a board game the detail is quite good and if you don't mind stripping and repainting the main figures or even priming and painting the single color plastic minis (which I don't) you simply can't complain about the sheer number of miniatures you get in this one box for the price I paid and even at full price it is well worth it... They are obviously meant to be for this game but they are generic enough to be used as minis in virtually any pen & paper fantasy roleplaying game.
At the current prices, you can get all three releases for less than the original price of the first.
If you snag about $25-$40 of additional Heroscape terrain off Ebay, it changes the game into something you can play for years and years.
Even if there is never another release for this game, it is still easily worth it to buy all three now. I've been thinking about getting another full set of the three releases to add to the first. This game has the potential to be massively expanded and customized. Your imagination is the boundary.
You also get some game board items including what I would call dungeon tiles, some tokens (very handy for D&D or a lot of other games too), and some cardboard terrain. The terrain is okay, the tiles are nice. But really I got this for the minis and I am stoked at the value and quality there. Paid less than $1/mini which is a great deal and the sculpts are so much better than I expected. I would say these are better than Mage Knight sculpts, about on par with the D&D Board Game mini sculpts, and not as good as games like Massive Darkness. So middle of the road quality but for the price you can't beat it. I might even go get a second set it's such a good value. These will be used by me for D&D, Frostgrave, and several other miniature based games.

35 unique sculpt mini’s for £8.50?
5 with spell effects?
Even if you aren’t going to play the game itself, of the three Magic the Gathering: Arena of the Planeswalkers sets, this is the best price for the number of mini’s you get. And there’s quite a variety.
5 Prepainted minis with spell effects:
Chandra Nalaar – Good for a fire focused caster.
Liliana Vess – Necromancer, Death Cleric, any sort of dark themed caster.
Jace Beleren – Any caster.
Gideon Jura – Maybe a Bard, Cleric. If you’re crafty, give him a weapon instead of the spell effect and he’d make a decent fighter model.
Nissa Revane – Very fitting for a Druid. Repaint for another caster type.
30 unpainted, unique sculpt mini’s:
3 Elven Archers
3 Earth Elemental / Treants
3 Zombie Warriors – Armoured and armed with axes. Could be used for non zombies.
3 Blighted Reavers – Larger, unarmed / armoured zombies. Possible ogres or larger creature.
3 Fire Cats – Repaint for any cat type creature or keep them as fire elemental types.
3 Phoenix’ – Same as above
3 Leyline Phantoms – Clear blue, four armed creatures
3 Illusionary Projections – Mirror image, invisibility or paint for more caster minis.
3 Kor Hookmasters – Good for Rogues or maybe even Monks
3 Rhox Veterans – Rhino Folk.
The cardboard ruins and hexgrid map are decent enough for some variety in your maps and scenery if you want.
It’s a great price for what you’re getting.
Buy it for the mini’s, if not for the game.
After unboxing and just being pleased with the components (any Dungeons and Dragons fan should grab this for some value minis!) Me and a friend gave the rulebook a read took the game for a spin. We were pleasantly surprised that it was really quite fun! Is it the best game you have ever played? No. Is it a good fun game that will occasionally be pulled out for a laugh? Most definitely.
If you can get this for £10 like I did, I highly recommend the purchase, it is definitely top value.
Seems a bit under supported at the moment, but already an expansion and a stand-alone.
I used to play a mixed black and white deck and I would like to replicate that.
