SummaryAn amazing, powerful game combining a strategy level and first-person roleplaying quests, unfortunately ahead of its time and crippled by bugs.
The GoodThis game had it all. A fun strategy game where entering an RPG adventure was available as a strategic option, it combined the two genres as no other game has attempted to do. It even portrayed the adventuring in full first-person 3D. Even with all the bugs, I played the game for about 100 hours and enjoyed almost all of them.
The BadUnfortunately, there were no commercial 3D FP engines available at the time, and too much of the programming effort was absorbed by that work. Instead of a great strategy game with a great RPG wrapped inside, Birthright became a decent strategy game with a buggy and incomplete RPG wrapped inside.
