  1. This add-on blows a crisp northern breath of life into the original game and the snow-capped mountains offer tests of skill, endurance and patience.
  2. Some players may find the new quests a little hard, but serious Majesty fans will enjoy the new quests and game features.

    It's still a very solid game with a great premise and interesting style of play that you just gotta love, but the lack of new friendly units and the slowdown that puts you in slow motion at times is a bit annoying.
  4. Isn't the greatest expansion pack around. However, it only costs $20, and although it only has 12 quests, those quests should give you 50 hours or more of gameplay.
  5. Costs about half the price of a new game and significantly extends the longevity of the original.
  6. The extra missions would have really helped flesh out the original. But it's not really worth a second price of admission. Wait for this one to hit the bargain bin, or if you don't have the original, wait for the inevitable "bundle."

Old time favorite, played 1v1 with my little bro all the time. Love the high level wizards, with one shot kills, of course most wizards will never make it to a high level. Gnomes are also awesome, a must if you max the settings out for custom battles. Then priestess, of course, about half the wizards dps but with the skeles can take out dragons and can mind control vamps instead of getting rolled by spell reflection.
    My 9 is for the Gold Edition that steam links here, not just the northern expansion that they link to.

    Insanely hard in my opinion, but then again, you could complete the original missions in 2-3 days with a little persistence. This expansionInsanely hard in my opinion, but then again, you could complete the original missions in 2-3 days with a little persistence. This expansion pack really adds to the game. More items to aid your heroes. More missions in different environment. And most importantly, the added difficulty of the new missions. With it's unique and rewarding gameplay which screams replayability, I'm baffled this game wasn't received better. Full Review »
