Description

As a scottish Lord in medieval England, you have to unite the clans and defeat the british army. Braveheart mixes economy and troup management on a 2D map with realtime-strategy battles in 3D. Although Braveheart is the official game to the hollywood movie featuring Mel Gibson, there is no direct reference to the film. (Apart from a single picture of Gibson, that is.)

Trivia

Angus MacFadyen

Angus MacFayden (who portrayed Robert the Bruce in the movie) acted as narrator and advisor in the game.

Development

The reason there was no mention of the movie in the game was the game was originally without the movie license. The original title was going to be Tartan Army. When the movie was released during the development, Eidos quickly bought the game rights and changed the title. The game was in development before the movie, and has no relation to the movie except they both cover the same subject, despite all the material claiming the game was based on the movie.

Scottish Association of the Clans

The game is endorsed by the Scottish Association of the Clans.
