Right, so first of all a few things. I hardly ever write reviews but I felt like for all the negative reviews this game received, I have to defend it because, this is in fact a REALLY REALLY GOOD GAME!!! In fact, it's a game that I can't get bored with and do you know why, because unlike any other games, it's different every single time I play it!!!
To those, who said steam DLCs don't work, that's rubbish, it might be a personal isssue, I have all DLCs and the all work, I bought them 1 by 1, my brother bought the pack and it works for both of us (plus, I know a lot of other people whom it works perfectly on steam), so that's that...Not saying there isn't an issue, there might be, but please, don't state they don't work when they do for a lot of us!
Although, you guys are probably right, in terms of comparing it to Majesty 1, yes it probably sucks. Don't know, I've never played Majesty 1, but I'd liek to make a point: for those, who haven't played Majesty one, I'd still recommend this game, you will not regret it, I promise, if you liked Dune 2/C&C/Dungeon Keeper, etc, you will like this, however, this will be different, but in a positive way :D!
What I love in this game is that your heroes have their own will. I absolutely, don't agree with someone who said they don't do anything unless there's a flag prompting them to do it. Your heroes are interested in different things, the Barbarian is aggressive, the Paladin is rather defensive. The archer likes to kill animal type of monsters and theives are adventorous. There's a lot to this game and it feels like a lot of people played a few maps, didn't get what the game meant to do and just wrote a negative review because it's not like Majesty 1.
This game is really-really challenging and fun at the same time. I don't have any issues with restarting a map or reloading it, to me that's how all games shoudl be where you need to think about what you've done wrong and correct your mistake. At some point, I've had like 8-10 saves at different times on the same map so that I could restart if need be. And every single time I reload a map it never goes the same way because your heroes will behave differently. That's what gives the beauty of this game, what you can control is how strong they can get, give them missions, spend money on them and they'll give you more money back.
To those, who have said this game is impossible to complete, both my brother and myself have completed the full game including DLCs and yes, we've replayed multiple maps before completed them but that's the whole point. If you only like complete a game at the first go, then you really shoudln't play with strategy games!!!
To me this game is one of the best, I have ever played. It is a shame for sure that they took out some creatures and buildings but liek I've said, I've never played M1 so to me this game is perfect!!!!
10/10 Please, try yourself, don't listen to the negative comments, this game is worth every penny!!!! I really hope, there will be a Majesty 3!!!!!
