Im usually not a fan of simulation games. I play "The Sims" for a day and call it quits, its just not for me. Ive only been playing "The Guild 2" for half a week and ive already invested nearly 40 hours at the expense of work and sleep, for me this game was very addictive. Its practically the sims but based in the dark ages where you grow a family and basically conquer your village with money, economic strength, and political power. This game features an abundance of mechanics, marriage, work, religion, politics, assassinations, blackmail, ect but there are various areas where its broken. For example there are times when my building was being attacked and i couldnt defend it because the attackers were glitched inside the house while not actually inside the building. (this can be countered by sending your men inside the building, then exiting the building with the camera and re selecting your men and ordering them to attack, then they exit and fight properly...assuming that there are no obsticles in the way). The game allows you to upgrade your cart to move faster, but you can only move as fast as traffic will allow, sometimes the streets are packed (it may be intentional to force you to strategize timing). My only other complaints are with its options menu, you cannot run this game windowed unless you alter the .ini file, and even then it pauses when you click away to another monitor, and you cannot remap buttons which you might assume isnt a big deal but when your speed keys are + and - it takes much longer when it could have simply been remapped closer to WASD. Oh and the game crashes on me once in a while so i recommend turning on autosave. Otherwise this is a game that i HIGHLY recommend if youre into sims and historical themes, yes it has a few problems but the positives outweight the negatives. Just be sure to get it on sale.

This is just a funny story that happened in game, you dont have to read this if you dont want to. My wife applied for the position of town executioner which was held by the member of a rival dynasty. They didnt like the fact that i was trying to rob them of their title so they killed my wife, i reported this crime to the town hall and was given a day to appear in court to testify. I was working that day in 3x gamespeed just blacksmithing to pass time and I missed the court date. The next day i was arrested and thrown in the dungeon to be tortured for missing court. so essentially, i was tortured because my wife was murdered :(

Don't get me wrong, this game is great. Despite being very buggy, it's definitely worth it. the only reason I'm not recommending this is because you should buy "The Guild II Renaissance" instead. it is literally everything this game is and more, plus it is much more updated and thus, less buggy.

The Guild 2 is a Real Time Strategy game set in the Medieval Period. Essentially, the game allows the player to use a bunch of maneuvres and tactics to climb the social ladder. If you like games that reward you for playing strategically, than this is for you. It's a deep and intricate game that gives you the freedom to do what you want. However, don't expect it to be easy or lightweight, it requires patience and concentration. The game however has a few bugs which will probably not be patched since the game is pretty old and a new installment will be coming out in the near future. Despite this it's still playable and enjoyable for an old game.

This game is much better than reality because in this game I can tell my wife what to do and she'll listen.
