Summary

One of the first strategy games of its kind...

The Good

It's the first game like it that I saw. I would say probably a good model game for all those nowaday games that use strategically placed minions and potent thought-out strikes to win. It was incredibly fun as well, especially when your opponent sent his cavalry against your infantry (AKA ...a slaughter).

The Bad

Tiny little guys, no actual fight scenes, blood, guts, etc...but strategy is what made this game fun. Also the cheesy little animations weren't that great, like when you'd hijack a train.

The Bottom Line

Really fun and entertaining, even to those that don't like those nowaday games I mentioned before. Simple, relatively easy gameplay, and great for versus battles with friends or relatives who are videogame inclined.
