Summary

A Simple, Fun Game

The Good

I liked the easy learning curve of this game. Graphics are pretty nice as is the sound. The tax collector's happily saying, "More gold you majesty" makes one feel like quite the "tax-and-spend" politician. *grin* It's just a fun game on the whole.

The Bad

I didn't like not having control over the different "heroes" you recruit. They basically go wherever they feel like in your town or countryside which is bad when you are under attack and don't have a lot of gold to "Recall" your knights.

The "Mage Towers" used for defense of your city cost money to activate. Fine. But there should have been an option to keep them active (subtracting additional monies if required).

The Bottom Line

Basically this is a simple strategy game that is a lot of fun.
