  1. On the whole, it’s a good game that will keep RTS fans happy whilst at the same time brings enough RPG elements to keep things fresh and interesting.
  2. A cursory glance at Dragon Throne often urges people to write it off as an "Age of Empires" clone. However, it is a sophisticated RTS title and handles its many layers much better than comparable RTS titles.
  3. Rich in graphical details, and sporting a classic player interface, Dragon Throne is a solid addition to the lineup of strategy games.
  4. The game has a lot of good ideas, but falls a little flat in the execution. Strategy gamers looking for something a little different or those with an interest in the period should give the game a look, but will need to approach it with a bit of patience.
  5. It's just not very distinctive.

    By the time you've learned the mysterious mechanics, you'll be bored with the game. [August 2002, p.71]
  7. The graphics are very dated, and aside from some of the complications and innovations it has a pretty old school RTS feel.
  8. Any potential excitement is sabotaged by uninspired gameplay.

    The maps look boring, the units have few and bland animations, the sounds are awful, and someone seems to have forgotten combat effects. [July 2002, p.69]

I also like the way you can put the men on and off of the horses and use the horses to pack supplies. Full Review »
