Summary

A gem of a game that has addictive gameplay and great presentation.

The Good

Everything. The gameplay is so simple and rewarding you forget the time. The tactical battles are challenging and a fun diversion from the RPG-like quest. Simple economics, army building, and character development round out a classic game that inspired a new genre of strategy games.

The Bad

Hardly anything. Probably the only detraction is the need to tactically battle every monster that attacks you. It would have been nice to have an auto-resolve option.

The Bottom Line

Pick this game up if you are looking for rewarding gameplay in a fantasy setting. It combines elements of role-playing, strategy, and problem solving into a well written package.
