They will need a great deal of persuasion (ok, gold) before they carry out your wishes...

For those having technical issues with the game:

Documents\My Games\MajestyHD\MajXPrefs (edit this file)
PixWidth/PixHeight match native resolution (use the in game changer if you want, if you do that, PixDepth will be reset to 16 and you'll need to change the config file again)
PixDepth 32
BlitMode 1
IntroVideo 0

Now it'll be as smooth as it used to be and you'll be able to enjoy one of the greatest strategy games of all time again.

Sim/RTS is a strange combination but it works here. You can build buildings, recruit heroes, set bounties, cast spells, but you can't control the characters directly. It does take a bit to learn because the idea is so abstract so you have to just try things to figure out the best strategies. This game is reccomended if you are looking for something different.

One of the reasons I recommend this game is the fact that it differs from other strategy games. If you're a casual strategy player who doesn't want to control every single unit or gather resources manually then this game is for you.

Majesty is mostly focused on which buildings you make, especially during the start of a level. The heroes will explore the map on their own. They fight and gather items, and if the enemy they're facing is too strong they flee. They also upgrade their armor and weapons automatically but only if you build a blacksmith and research the upgrades. That means you don't have to worry about anything except making the right buildings. If you feel like ordering the units to search a specific location on the map you can add a bounty flag which will make the units move there to get the reward.

By the way, the music and voice acting is amazing.

The concept of the game is great.
Be in control of a kingdom, but not in control of the heroes.
Sure the graphics are dated, but I loved playing this when it first came out, and keep coming back to this game every now and then.
Want a part of the map explored? Put a marker down with some cash on it, and someone will take care of it.
Swimming in cash, but your heroes are broke, and under-equipped? Put a 4000 gold bounty on a rat, and watch them stimulate the economy fast.

It does get trickier on the higher difficulties, but once you've got the hang of it, it's both challenging and rewarding. It's worth checking out, as well as the second installment of the series.
