This game is terrible. The videos and screenshots made the game look very great and detailed, but this game is actually terrible quality and was very poorly made. Here are the reasons not to get this game:
1. It's $40, when it's really worth $5.
2. The graphics are terrible. The screenshots may look fine, but they actually suck.
3. The game looks like it was made by people with very little experience in programming. The menu goes off the screen, and the minimap does not even show the correct positions of things. The map could say that it is directly in the center of the screen but it could not even be on the screen.
4. There was no tutorial, and I can't even get past the first level because I have no idea what to do. It says to gather 100 of each resource but whenever I try to build stone pits and ore pits it says that it could not be gathered at this location and no matter where I put it it always says that.
I only paid $10 for this game, but it was still a complete rip-off :(

I kept coming back to this game hoping it would be improved. It had such potential. Unfortunately, every single bug remains from when I first bought it when it first became avaialble to now. Peasants will suddenly bug out and stop what they should be doing, buildings will be halted in mid-construction with no way of demolishing them or completing them, and various other issues crop up on a regular basis with no workarounds that I could find.

Do yourself a favor and save your money.

I would love to have my money back on this games as it is unplayable. It locks up both of the computers I own. The lack of an autosave feature in a game with this many issues is appaling.

So this game had the potential to be great, but everything they tried to do was simply implemented horribly. I tried to see the positives in this game to no avail. My rant/review shall now commence.

You'd imagine that the wall and citadel construction would have been done right since it's the bloody title of the game.. well guess again, it's horrendous and inexplicably complicated and bugy. (also for some reason, the further away you place your wall, the less fps you have, I don't understand how that could be an actual correlation in this day and age)

Another thing is the menus and extremely unfriendly interface. There are many icons which supposedly show different resources.. the only thing is they're basically all the same. Adding to the horrible interface is the crappy layout of buildings and options. There's just a bunch of fancy pop-out menus with NOTHING in them. You will literally see a huge menu with only one option and no tooltips or anything. Oh and remember all those lovely hotkeys that every relatively new rts has? That's right you guessed it, this game has none.

As I'm sure you've noticed, this is quite an angry review and has turned into a rant rather than an objective review. BUT, after having played a few skirmishes against the so called 'a.i.' I felt compelled to try and save you from the dreadful experience that lies ahead.

I somehow managed to get it for 6 euros and I still feel cheated. This game is so pre-alpha that no one should ever be able to buy it until they at least remove all the bugs and arrange the ai and interface.

Save yourself and your wallet, do not waste money on this.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.

I'm out.

This game looks so great in screenshots, but is such a let-down to play :(

I, of course, ignored all the negative reviews because it just looked so purty. Huge mistake. This game is not worth the cost of entry.

After trying to play this game quite a few times. I got up to the 3rd level. And it kept freezing. The AI of your units is so bad that they all seem to find the dumbest way of doing things. Then run straight at the enemy castle and get killed.

The ability to select what you want by clicking on it normally gets something near by and not what you want. Drives you insane.

I would not even buy this on sale. I can not recommend this to anyone. Well maybe if they fix the bugs I could. But will see.

I've played Civ, AoE, Starcraft, Rise of Nations, etc. and I simply cannot recomment this game. It is EXTREMELY buggy, certain units move wehen they want to or not at all, some things work, some don't. "Citadels" has several of the basic aspects of an RTS and nothing more. $5 dollars is the most I'd pay for this game and nothing more.
