SummaryThe best medieval themed RTS of all time
The GoodIt will keep you playing for months the multiplayer is incredibly balanced all the civilizations fight well and strategy is abundant. Back when this came out the graphics where great as well. Choose from the mongols, chinese, britons, franks, saracens, etc. A lot of diversity with each civilization having their own interface and own sounds. I really learned a lot of history from this game as well. I'll never forget how Barbarossa died. The rated system on the zone is what kept me coming back, the numbers were well calibrated and you only got a lot of points for when you really won. Singly player was fun too, though not nearly as fun as multiplayer. The civilizations each possess their own special units which totally change their position on the battlefield. Playing on custom maps was also really fun. You can choose from random map, deathmatch, custom map, king of the hill, and a whole slew of other styles. This is truly a strategy classic.
The BadThe zone system they used online was a little buggy, and it didn't contain cheaters to well either. I doubt they've fixed it either, the net's best hackers were addicted to this game.
