i got this from a giveaway and its really worth it. the major problem is that you can't play with big resolution, but it can be fix with this step ( I'm using windows 7 ):
  1. Start->Run->regedit
  2. Go to : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Reality Pump\KnightShift\BaseGame\Graphics\Setup
  3. Edit the "ShowAllRefreshRates" by double click on it and set the value 1 (default is 0 and this is not working)

This game has a great campaign with a great RTS/RPG elements in the game. The game offers 3 campaigns so you will get plenty of hours.The Multiplayer system ranging from RTS to rpg mode. You can all work together or you can kill each other. Rpg mode you will be doing set missions. The graphics and the voice acting is okay but it doesnt destroy the game at all. I believe the game was made in 2003 but for a 2003 game and most of the time this game is on sell for 97cents you will have a blast!

This game is bad...but that special kind of bad that makes it fun to play with some friends while drinking or something. It has decent controls but hilariously bad dialogue. the characters all sound like Microsoft Sam and the there were times where every single word in an NPC's speach would end in the suffix "eth." If I had to explain the story of this game I would just say "thiseth iseth theeth adventureseth ofeth microsoft Prince John, Heeth goeseth arroundeth andeth killseth stuffeth."

A nice litle hack 'n' slash with a great sense of humour. It's not going to win any major awards in THIS decade but it still offers a fun little break from more highbrow titles. It should be noted that there is a slight problem with higher resolutions. The game will not run in full HD. 67%
