Summary

RL meets War Game meets Lords of the Realm meets Warlords style heroes

The Good

It's classic SSI, if you liked their Gold Box D&D stuff, you would love this variation. The ecclectic mix of genres is done very well, and even with a decent evolving plot that while linear had enough variety in the gameplay to be very engrossing. Current day developers could take note!

The Bad

Its dated now, and the end game does not maintain the pace and interest of the rest of the game.

The Bottom Line

"Sword of Aragon" (from SSI) on the Amiga, was a great turn based variant that mixed RL combat/magic, warlord style Heroes, war game tactical and economic Lords of the Realm style over game.
