No innovation, very bad story. Difficulty level was very good, I found it a tad easy until the very end, and that was only because I leveld about 20 guys instaed of the 11 you have to take into the end... and 5-6 of those guys are basically pre-selected! LAME! Make sure to only level a few powerhouses. Also the story is "meh" than "nostalgic meh" then it gets lame, and falls apart at the end. In fact, I quit about 3 missions from the end after a character I really like died for pretty much no reason and with no revelations of any kind coming with their death. Also, the graphics and characters wern't that great.
