Summary

Classic game, but graphics really need improvement.

The Good

Well, it's a fantasy TBS, what's not to like? :) Addictive gameplay. Good music. Multiplayer support is great. Hot-seat rocks!

The map editor is great. The amounts of maps available on the internet makes this game last forever.

The Bad

The graphics are actually horrible, even in TBS standards. The world map looks to unrealistic. Some people may say this doesn't matter in this type of game, but realistic surroundings add to the feeling of the game. Compare with Age of Wonders.....

The number of resources is too big. I never found all this resource-hunting funny.

The Bottom Line

It's a classic game that everyone should have played. It has its ups and downs, but when you play it you get stuck for hours, and a game like that can't be bad...
