Way back in 1997, an extremely well designed RTS game, Age of Empires, blew many players away. Granted the gameplay at the time was similar to the ‘big two’ being Command and Conquer and Warcraft, it stands out due to its storyline as it ties in playing out our history. Personally, I loved it because you get the play out the Stone Age as no other games done this effectively since. Fast forward to 2008, another RTS game arrived where you can play out the Stone Age (with some twists) and filled the landscape with dinosaurs – and who doesn’t like dinosaurs? This game, BC Kings, whilst kept on the traditional RTS formula (explore / build / conquer), it added some RPG elements and encourages exploration as well. A decent game considering it’s an indie title however I wished there were more dinosaurs to play with.

Overall, the game was a blast to play from start to finish with some twists and turns along the way. Yes it does feel like a rip-off from Age of Empires however it’s obvious that there’s a lot of love and care poured into this game. The UI is nicely designed with beautiful pictures that resembles cavemen paintings splashed throughout is an example of devotion. However I praise the developers for trying out something new to the ever-so overused RTS formula where it encourages you to explore, have multiple maps, a spray of RPG and even has a third person view option (well…one mission has this). Some of these innovations plays well and others not so however that’s not to discredited their efforts. It’s a light hearted RTS that’s very enjoyable to play until the very end. Let’s put it this way, when I think of that title, it places a smile in my face and that’s a good thing.

8 / 10

Outdated, play Starcraft if you want what this game is trying to provide. Unless you're hung up on cavemen.

Glitchy, crashes a lot, horrible UI, pretty much the norm for publisher Strategy First. I would pass on this and all of their games.

I can't enjoy this game. Map is too loose with multiple paths that either loops around or lead to dead ends. The construction is very bad and there is a lack of grouping well. If you want a better game, try to find the Fate of Hellas. That was a really good game, very concise and tutorial made for dummies.
