Warrior KIng has been a great game, even in my childhood with massive battles and suprisingly a great story.

However!

On modern systems this game is known for its bugs and unit warping; which trust me when your playing, it can get really anoying. So sadly I cannot recommend this game due to this fact, because it makes it unplayable.

Don't waste £7 pounds of money. If you are going to buy it because of nostalgia, buy it when its cheap.

Very slow and clunky. If you like RTS, pick up Age of Empires 2. If you like city builders, pick up Grand Ages: Rome. If you like dynasty builders, pick up Crusader Kings. Stronghold might satisfy you if you're looking for a similar strategic mix. I'd actually suggest Majesty if you're willing to roleplay a little more and strategize a little less.

The game doesn't even have a singleplayer skirmish mode either, and everyone who plays multiplayer seems to have WK:Battles which supposedly has this plus more content but requires a direct network connection. It reminds you of playing C&C from the old days where you could only choose among previously completed missions, or had to directly connect through a serial modem connection

Games that use middle mouse buttons for rotating the camera and don't have custom controls are just asking for trouble. There's no windowed mode either. :-\

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.
