Wonderful Sim and RPG. The blend of what and RTS an RPG and The Sims wouldlook like in a living simulated medieval Europe. This will keep you occupied for a LONG time.:)
There is a gigantic world of opportunities and ways to play. Something which is quiet daunting for new players as it can be overwhelming to just start in any particular class or job.
Also, the game is difficult. Very difficult at times.
When a rivalling family has it out for you and you happen to be unprepared there is are few things from stopping them from ending your line before dawn.
The difficulty slider only affects the amount of money and what social position you have in your city, the rest is a flowing, living community at any level.
So, for those who are willing to put some time into it, there is a sea of possibilities to play with and the very nature of the fluency of the world makes it so that every play through will be different.
As a final note: when out of ideas, you should try the ‘Back to the Roots: Sovereign edition’ realism mod, which, apart from a whole spectrum of realism tweaks and additions, adds a bunch of new social interaction options and job paths and the final political goal of becoming the sovereign of your country!
