  • Summary: In the year of our lord 843, the first king of Scotland, Kenneth McAlpin, united the lands of the Picts and Scots to form the Kingdom of Alba. 400 years later Edward I, also known as the "Hammer of the Scots" engulfed the land in a great feud. It was not long before Edward I controlled most of Scotland. The Scots, led by William Wallace and Robert the Bruce, are left to fight what seems to be a futile war for freedom. This is the time when legends are born... [Data Becker] Expand

  1. Take "Braveheart," add clerics and magical effects, and you have a semi-nonfictional RTS title with good replayability.
  2. The game play is simple enough but you must definitely be there to control the town building aspect as well as simple control over battles as most of your time will be spent collecting resources and awarding master craftsman awards to your peasants and finding someone to battle.
  3. Lacks the polish of a quality title. It's not a bad game - it's just got nothing under it's kilt. [Apr 2003, p.108]
  4. Historical accuracy doesn't compensate for the deficiencies in its gameplay and graphics... It has some good ideas, but it lacks polish.
  5. Once your army is assembled, you'll encounter little or no resistance from the enemy troops, which essentially kills any sense of accomplishment a player might have after successfully finishing a mission.
  6. While the specifics of the setting might be novel, the gameplay consists of ground that has already been covered by better titles, some many years old and sitting in bargain bins.
  7. A chunky mix of features from other titles in a fully 3D bladder that has some merit, but will probably leave most gamers why on earth they should take a bite. [May 2003, p.91]

    This game proves 3d itself doesn't prove good graphics but talent does. Technically nothing is wrong but models look awful, so do the cutscenes. I wonder what the guys over TechTV were smoking praising them. Is everyone so obsessed with technical specifications of the engine that they can't see something UGLY anymore? A soldier speaks and you can see the back of his head when his mouth opens. Awful, awful graphics. Gameplay is average, and the story is actually very nice but all these combined make an average game, if not a bit above that. Expand

    I've played 30 min this one. Well, after that I didnt wanted to play anymore. Its gameplay is just too poor to "start me up" (Myth was better). And also with my integrated sound I have problems running this game under w98, it runs with no sound problems only under XP. Expand
