This game is a classic, I remember playing the demo sometime back in like, early 2002...? Can't really remember, but even today it holds great quality for a game this old. Graphics are obviously quite dated, but considering that the game was acctualy released in 2002 they arn't THAT bad, infact they are quite impressive and back in 2002 they were most likely very high standards. The gameplay is excellent, watching battles between 2 factions are just incredible. 500-600 men fighting for victory.
The AI is smart and very, very different depening on which settings you play on. Some AI are REALLY slow whilst others are REALLY fast. This is both good and bad but it will keep you entertained for a good time. What makes this game so entertaining is that you must always keep your economy, troop producment, and other vital producments above your opponent. If not, you will most likely lose.
The only REAL flaw with this game is that it has ♥♥♥♥loads of glitches, and the AI can sometime get stuck when they build their castle.
