Blending the strategy associated with collectible card games with the turn-based structure of a board game, Culdcept Saga is the first in the series to offer four-player support online. Each player, referred in the game as a Cepter, begins with a 50-card deck from a pool of 480. Cards are used to cast spells, use items, or summon creatures to fight rival opponents. The object is to claim as much territory, represented by squares on a map, as possible. Once a player moves into unclaimed territory, he or she is allowed to place creatures found on one of the cards to guard the square.
Subsequent players who land on an occupied square can do one of two things: pay a toll and continue moving or fight to reclaim the territory. Once a battle is won, players earn the square as well as the card used to defend it. By winning matches in the Story Mode, players will be able to build custom decks for use in competition on Xbox Live. Previously released on PlayStation 2, Culdcept on Xbox 360 features revamped 3D visuals, more animation, alternate map routes, and achievement points. Players can also customize their character's appearance and card book by visiting the Xbox Live Marketplace. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
