This is an interesting game. You can Manage a business or 4, Make LOADZA MONEY! You can get married, have kids, get into Politics, get higher and higher in the Governmental Offices until you reach "King" or Governor/Mayor/Baron or whatever the Top Spot is called. And if you play your cards right you can get your whole family into office and Take COMPLETE control over the town you're in. Each seat in office offers a lump sum as payment every round I'm guessing the higher the office the more MONEY you get and if your whole family is in control... Pff forget about it. Along with your businesses... That's ... a lot of doe. ]:) and you'll have Rival Family's in the town. And if they ♥♥♥♥ you off for any reason you can (if you so choose) Charge them for some crime they've committed and have them executed >:) or i guess you can develop an alliance with them if they complement your business. This is a fun game.
But be warned their are... a couple bugs in it, wired animations, occasional German dialog hear and their (theirs English text so its not.. TO bad i guess. But if you can see past that its a fun game that has hours of entertainment value. (if your into these kinds of games) but if you don't really like to many bugs you can always buy it on a sale or something :)

I want to like this game, but all I got was frustration. After going through the tutorial, you get "some" basic idea about how the game plays, but when you start the game you pretty much feel clueless on what to do or how to approch it. After fumbling around for a while you'll get your business up and struggle to maintain it. All you will be focused on will be trying to juggle getting resources, making items and selling it. On top of that, you risk your hard work being taken by robbers on the way to the market at the other town. Another thing to juggle with is finding and courting a partner, getting married and have children. If you don't do it, eventually your character will die of old age and there will be no one to carrying on your family business. At this point you haven't even started on the politics side of the game. FRUSTRATING is the only thing I got out of this game. I really want to like it and play it, but the frustration due to the complexity of the game makes me want to uninstall this game and not waste my time with it. Urghhh....

As fun as this game is, it does have many bugs, and gives the feeling that it is unfinished, possibly even rushed.
It does have many strong points though, and I strongly suggest getting it, especially if it's on sale.

Overall, I rate this game (according to the new Video Games Ranking System) 2.5 Guys out of Five.

A dude from a rival dynasty killed my daughter. I went to the courts with evidence of this. On the day of the trial thugs beat me up and almost made me late. On arrival I found out all the jurors were of that same rival dynasty. They promptly declared the murderer innocent and made me pay a fine for wasting the court's time.

10/10

Once the game started I imediately kissed the first random woman I could see, she then complimented me on my kissing skills and then took out a knife and started randomly fighting a guy in the streets.

11/10 best realistic medieval simulator.

First, the don't let the metacritic make you say no. This game is worth more than the metacritic. Personaly, If you read the ALL of the tutorials, its a fun game. It takes you about 25-35 minutes to complete the tutorials, not reading them will screw you in failure.

The pros:
.Four classes, so when you finish a game in one class, you dont say, well Im done, you say, lets play another class.
.Mulitplayer. Dont let the "Single Player" fool you. If you can find people to play Guild 2, then your in for a party!
.Crime: Yes, there is a "robber" class, however you can't just to bad things willynilly. They will find out, and to court you go.
."Villager View" You know in Towns (a game I even still play) how you control the city? Well not here. You are a citizen in a town, trying to make a living. Yes, you can "run" the town, but once again, the game wont just say, Here you go.
.People speak SOME words. You have to admit, thats better than reading text. (you can still read the text)

The cons:
. Ok, theres some bugs here, and some speaking issues there, but still, everygame has their bugs.
. The thing that bugs me is that you only have 3 people you can control at a time. Once you kick a person out of your group, they wont come back. (I learned that the hard way.)
. Randomly, you cant attack robber camps or houses. Its sort of bad, but still, you doing it for the good.

Overall, I give this a 9/10. Its a very fun game, and I will write more once I get the DLCS, and dont look at the bugs or the metacritic score, cause they will lure you away from a good game.

Wow. Just wow.

I bought this game and it's two expansions for a measly 5 bucks on sale, and I feel like I ripped the devs off! While it has a steep learning curve, this game is truly a gem of a sim/rpg. My only suggestion is PLAY THE TUTORIAL. This game was almost impossible to figure out on my own, but after playing the tutorial the game got a whole heck of a lot more fun.

Basically, choose to start your family dynasty with a selection from several classes including: Craftsman, Patron, Scholar, and Rogue. Once you get started you can start a business, hire employees, improve your buildings, buy titles for yourself, woo a lady (or man), have children, send them off to school (or dont), commit crimes, bribe city officials, blackmail people, smoothtalk your way out of a court sentencing, smoothtalk your way into a public office.... Just way too much to even try to list. There is so much to do in this game. It has already eaten over 10 hours of my life and it's about to gobble up another 4 or 5 tonight.

After Starting as a rouge and pillaging caravans, kidnapping people, breaking into houses, pick pocketing random people and burning down rivals buildings for sh**s and giggles i learned a valuable lesson ..

The court's are rigged cause i did absolutely none of the above.

9/10

Would/Will terrorize the countryside again.

You can put so much, or so little to this game and get a lot out of it, no matter what. There's so many different ways you can play it, and so many different styles of gameplay that you can experience. You can run for Mayor of the town and kill anyone who opposes you, or you can be a friendly shopkeeper and make a lot of money selling your wares. Get married and have children. Raise those children (or not). Become a bachelor and own a huge mansion. Be a minister at your local church.
Sabotage your competitors business (or their life).

This game will keep you going for hours. It's so much fun and I highly recommend it.

You can either love or hate this game......OK OK or like me you can have love/hate relationship with this virtual coccaine....
Yes i said relationship as it seems i spended more time with this game than my family and friends, typical case of "one more turn and thats it" .

What i love:
Be catholic fanatic and make crusade to convert all towns to right faith,become feared crimelord or powerful politician.
Problems with rival?Simply kill,kidnap,bribe,beat up,threaten,ambush his caravans or became friends by giving him delicious cake or reading sweet poem.
Or try it trough politics create intricate schemes,make powerful alliances,befriend council members and rise in rank make your family occupy all seats in council then make sudden inspection in rival bussines,arrest him,execute him,strip him of his title,wealth, and finally banish him and tear down his buildings.
Is that too much for you? Well then became simple smith,alchemist or farmer delivering your merchandies to market every day and dont pay any attention to that mean world around you.

What i like:
Graphics is nice,textures are sharp enough,scenery is beautiful with flowers moving in wind,
4 different seasons and corresponding weather like heavy rain in autumn with grey gloomy colors while summer is more vibrant and alive.
Interface is pretty simple and easy to navigate,soundtrack fits game perfectly,there is enough game modes consisting typical sandbox where you make you own goals,mission mode where you choose your main goal you have to reach to win,or simple extinction where last one standing wins.

What is ok:
AI Is responsive enough and do what it should do most of times, they climb hierarchy ladder using their friends,politic power and spies againts you, kill member of rival dynasty and feel their wrath, they dont hesitate to bribe or use buff items to help their cause.Though when it comes to bodyguards they never spend a dime on their equipment leaving them with -1 dagger. And too bad they dont fear walking alone at night in forest in places where other members of their family died...too bad for them ofcourse .(normal difficulty)
Animation is nothing special and serves it purpose though i wouldnt mind if there were more immersive animations .
Character creation is typical you can choose your first and last name,faith,appearance,voice,level of your starting skills and occupation.
RPG elements are ok there is 8 skills that affect certain actions + every few levels you get perks.
You can level up and max your skills pretty easily which makes classes little pointless but its not big deal.

Dissapointing:
Fact that family members who are not in you party are idle. For exception of going to church or another town they do not level up,take council seats,buy bussines,work,have kids,or getting married you have to add them to your group and even after that if you assign member of your family a bussines and remove him from your group he looses that bussines.
Courting is too easy and even if it says you need to take different approach for each class it doesnt really matter you can basicly do anything and it will have same effect on every class ie patron will like dancing same as rogue .

What sucked:
Bad optimalization(better turn bloom off its ugly anyway) horrible pathfinding and from it surfacing problems like getting stuck or fighting in group where some merc just freeze and are useless.

All in all i will recommend this game it is not perfect and has its flaws for me flaws that didnt stop me from having alot of fun even if sometimes ugly words were yelled...at monitor at night when i should sleep...because i had to go to work.

Bought this game for about $5, and I have to say I would have bought it at full price if I knew how good it was. It's not perfect but if you want to kill some time you can do a whole lot worse.
