Summary

Lead your D&D armies to victory time and again!

The Good

The incorporation of AD&D character rules into a strategy game makes a very rewarding experience. You create your character who is the leader of an army and gains experience and levels depending on how successful you are. The higher level you are, the better your heroes become. The sense of accomplishment by winning always brings you back for more.

The Bad

The game became very difficult very fast, once you reach the levels where the opposing commanders know all sorts of magic to make your armies fall apart. One false move at these levels and you will watch your army crumble to dust.

The Bottom Line

Those who have a passion for AD&D and strategy games need to check out this title. Although you don't need experience in either to enjoy it.
