Summary

A comprehensive fantasy war game that captures the struggle of good and evil.

The Good

For a strategy game written in 1989 this game has it all. It has diplomacy, tactics, heroes, and good old fashioned war gaming. The computer poses a good challenge and you really gain a sense of desperation as the Highlord Dragonarmies begin picking off your allies one by one.

The Bad

The controls are completely keyboard driven and require some getting used to. I experienced one bug in the game where my Whitestone armies could not sack the enemy capital because a small force was not engagable.

The Bottom Line

If you like AD&D and strategy then this game is for you. It is a classic game set in the rich fantasy world of Krynn.
