criminally underrated gem that was part of my childhood. this is hardly subpar shovelware.

plus, this natively supports widescreen, so you don't have to fingle around with some .ini file

It may not have been the prettiest child, even back when first released, But my word this was a brilliant game.
one of the few RTS's where it feels truly free form in how you tackle each level. ( after the first couple of tutorial levels at least)

Rarely a more satisfying gaming moment beats seeing your enemies sprawling base in uncontrollable flames.

The only downside to this game is the annoying graphical glitching of the units, If anyone can solve that it would be much appreciated!

Despite that, Its still very very playable. I look forward to Warrior Kings : Battles joining it on here soon ( I hope! )

One of my favorite RTS games from the Windows XP era, unfortunatley no one has ever heard of it. One of my favorite aspects is that there is a set of 5 religeous paths (3 distinct paths and 2 hybrids) that shape the course of the campaign based on the decisions that you make in game. The path that you follow also determines which specialty units and buildings you can build and each path has various advantages over the others. The AI players each also belong to a particular religeous group, adding new dynamics to each encounter.


Great game, runs perfectly on Windows 7 x64, and supports 1920x1080 out of the box.

Played this when I was younger. if you have a windows os after xp you need to put it in compatability mode or run the compatability troubleshooter. You will still have some random glitches on the more demanding levels but its reduces their number significantly and smoothes out the gameplay.

As for the game itself its a gem that never got the acclaim it should have. Great story, great gameplay with many new ideas for its time including your choices changed the story and adding upkeep in order to maintain an army just like you would have to in real life.

If your a fan of rts games this one is a must try just remember to fix the compatability issues before running the game and remember your troops will still glitch but if the compatability settings are right it will cause minimal problems.
