Heroes from the Past: Joan of Arc
Just an OK game
I don't know what's happening with the match-3 games but they definitely are not as high quality at Big Fish as they used to be. I keep hoping for better graphics, good stories, and some challenge, but the last few releases have been a step backwards and disappointing.

Misrepresentation of SAINT Joan of Arc
While I did enjoy the fast play of this Match 3 game, I was VERY disappointed in the story line. It is unfortunate that the developer used "Joan of Arc" as the heroine, and I can only assume that it was done in an attempt to garner the attention of Catholic gamers.

Clunky and awkward
I admit, I liked being able to pick which style of match-3 game I could play, but I would have much rather had a single-style match-3 game done well than the multiple styles provided done this poorly. It felt like I was playing a match-3 game from years ago when processors could barely handle everything before you'd gone on. Before the tokens settled from one move, I could be two or three matches beyond already, and if one or more power-up gets used, I could be further. This game doesn't even reward that kind of action.
Just as annoying, to build just the initial stages of the village, I had to play three or more levels. I don't mind that too much late in the game, but I hate that when I'm just starting out. I expect to be able to advanced past the initial stages every couple of levels with increasing time as purchase prices rise; this much time between starting purchases just makes me dread what it will be in later stages of development.
Worse, I missed most of the 'storyline' because the game would speed through Joan's screens so rapidly without waiting for a response from me. It was easy enough to figure out what the next goal was, but if there is supposed to be a storyline to go along with advancement, it would be helpful to keep the story around long enough for me to read it!

The graphics were nice, but the total fictionalization of a great Catholic Saint was quite frankly a little offensive. I could not play for more than a couple of rounds before I just got disgusted and uninstalled. If your going to give your game a theme...at least try not to butcher the reputation of a real life Saint.

Sorry to say, though I like many M3-games, I find this game extremely boring, and a bit naive. I played about 45% of levels and all the time I was waiting for some extra gigs or some puzzles between levels.
The only challenge in this game is to collect gold and by buildings!
