good game, really puts through role playing acting and voicing. very fun seeing your heroes explore and level up. Has great feature to help champions quest for your flags and buy various items.

This was one of the first PC games I ever played, and I had a massive nostalgia attack when I discovered it was on Steam. I would concede that Majesty is a bit dated now, and the gameplay might be fairly simple for some, but it's definitely worth giving a try on sale. Recommended for newcomers to the real time strategy genre.

Edit: The reason it says I have 0.1 or 0 hours on record is because when I purchased this it came with Majesty Gold Edition and Gold Edition HD. I have been playing the HD version since it runs far better on my OS.

Majesty called itself "The Fantasy Kingdom Sim." It's a fair title as it's a bit of it's own beast. It has city/kingdom management. There are monsters - and heroes, which you hire, to deal with them.

The thing is, you don't control the heroes. You entice them. With bounties. It sounds a bit obtuse, but it's actually quite enjoyable. It's a constant balancing act of upgrading structures, researching technologies, and bribing heroes with ever greater sums of cash - which they then spend and you re-absorb through tax collectors.

There's a good deal of inventiveness in the game - and quite a bit of, essentially, altered perspectives. The situations are familiar to strategy players, but the approach is novel.

Keep in mind that it's an older title. It may have some... hairballs as you run it. The graphics are dated, but they honestly didn't bother me.

If you're interested in something a little different with a fair amount of inovation, you're in the right place. Addictive and fun, Majesty combines the best of city-sim-lite with the rewarding chaos of herding cats.

Well, this game is enjoyable, most definetly... for me it lacks some depth, the "quests" look a bit all the same.
It is interesting and original, in discount for 1.99 USD it is surely worth the money, particularly for fantasy and strategy lovers, but feels a bit incomplete to me: they could have gave control of a hero to the player for example, I don't know.
6.5/10

An old classic, pretty sedate until later levels when waves of ratmen come at you one after another. I owned the original years ago and was excited to see it on Steam. Still fun, and great for a nostalgia trip.

A fantastic title that will forever hold a special place in my heart, Majesty is a wonderful experience for any fans of the RTS or RPG genres. No complaints about this reboot. Highly recommended.

This was the first strategy game I ever played as a kid. Loved it back then and am pleased to say that it is still one of my all time favourite games! =)

A marvelous game with dinamic and fun gameplay that will leave you playing for hours. Most missions can be done in the first try, and the ones who can't only challenge you for more fun.

Fond memories, this is an interesting experience simply trying to order around your "heroes" by simply putting up bountys. You are the one to put out requests instead of being the hero looking for those bounties and loot.
Very comical at times too.

Gah, i have played this one ten years ago, and now i got old and forget how to play this. Haha, really funny, but i like it. I have to remember the game rules and try again to defending my kingdom. Love this non-ordinary gameplay and mechanic, love all of it.

First and still the Best of the Majesty game. Very different kind of strategy, that you will either love or hate, but nothing in the middle.

Very good game, childhood favorite. Only issue with it is that multiplayer doesn't work. 8.5/10

Super fun super classic. Indirect controls of heros is sometimes frustrating, but at the same time you'll get a laugh out of the AI, and you can focus more on the macro aspects of the kingdom.

9/10
Because I can't tell if I love paladins more or Warriors of discord.

Majesty was released in 2000 and did away with what most people knew about the rts genre.

You play the role of a king, but unlike most other strategy games you don't directly control your units. You can construct buildings, anything from guilds, to guard towers, to marketplaces.

From the guilds you can recruit heroes, but they have a mind of their own, so to get them to do what you want you can place bounties to explore parts of the map or to kill and destroy enemies and buildings.

Heroes will level up, and will buy things from the marketplace and other such buildings using gold they get from bounties, killing enemies, or finding in chests on the map.

You can level up buildings to improve them and to be able to research new things, such as better armor for your heroes to purchase at the blacksmith, or new spells for your wizards to learn at libraries.

Overall Majesty is an interesting rts, which Majesty 2 couldn't quite live up to.

Hell yea, this game is great! I loved playing it when it first came out long ago on Windows 98. :P Amazing game really. The HD update isn't all that great, all they did was change maybe 2 lines of code. HAH. But it's still a great game.
