SummaryWhat a Game!!!
The GoodThis game was the game that got me addicted to real time strategy, at the time it was amazing and addictive, but since playing newer games it's hard not to criticize it. A clear advantage was that each team had its own special weapon built in the palace and their own special unit. Each side also had its own 'character' being represented by the attitude of the advisor. The story line was solid and I followed it having never read the book, in fact I didn't know the book existed.
The BadCompared to present day RTS games it looks terrible, but its unfair to compare the game to other games made 5 years later. The graphics were acceptable. The most annoying bit about the game was that you could only send one unit at a time to attack, so it would be common for them to get systematically destroyed. Also the missions were all the same, kill every unit if the other team. The units from team to team were the same excluding the special weapons. I only played this game on my old computer so I can't comment on sound because it didn't work.
