    Reign: Conflict of Nations is a highly underrated but intriguing game. There are no massive battles Total War style, instead this is a game along the line of Europa Universalis III with an element of RTS similar to Mount&Blade or Real Warfare 1242. This game has a beautiful albeit simplistic graphical approach a smooth tutorial and a good interface. The AI is solid, though like most gamesReign: Conflict of Nations is a highly underrated but intriguing game. There are no massive battles Total War style, instead this is a game along the line of Europa Universalis III with an element of RTS similar to Mount&Blade or Real Warfare 1242. This game has a beautiful albeit simplistic graphical approach a smooth tutorial and a good interface. The AI is solid, though like most games sometimes Moscow just really wants to conquer Oman or in this case the Crimea, personally I think that kind of result is intrinsic to the concept of alternative history strategy. The two primary problems with this game, as can easily be discovered by checking reviews or the 1C forums are that: 1) there is no decent manual, while the tutorial is a great outline it offers limited suggestions on strategic considerations, and 2) as many underrated games this was reviewed and pigeon-holed by "professional" reviewers who are either afraid to get their feet wet or think that no one else will want to either. This game is FAR from the opaque mess it has been portrayed to be and as anyone who plays Total War or Paradox or Starcraft knows that if you REALLY need to know something just open the game files to understand the actual combat mechanics, otherwise just experiment, isn't that the way a game should be?

    After a long frustrating learning curve patient players will enjoy the high strategic-depth and complexity.

    Russian developers are said to make very difficult and unapproachable games, totally missing the international market. Reign: Conflict of Nations is an impressive proof. If you haven't thought of invading Jaroslawl with Latvia, you're better of with the Total War series.
  3. With only a few shortcomings, Reign is a good excuse to get familiar with the grand strategy sub-genre.
