  1. The game is full of the little details that define greatness. If Warlords Battlecry II isn't one of the early leaders for real-time strategy game of the year I'll eat my magical staff.
  2. The very definition of replayability.
  3. This game has proven to me to be more addictive than cigarettes after all night romps in the hay with my special friend...the most fun I’ve had in playing an RTS since "Dungeon Keeper 2" and "Warcraft 2."
  4. There should be a warning on this game about it becoming habit-forming, because it certainly is that.
  5. The interface is one of the best RTS GUIs (for the acronym conscious) to date. There are rollover help messages for just about everything and you can automate the building of units with an endless variety of queue options.
  6. By inherently alienating new players in combining two genres, and then providing too little incentive to win over RTS vets, the game becomes more of an upgrade for fans of the franchise, who want to control new races and explore some of the new features.

    his is a game style which you either like it or hate it. I think if you don't like this style of game you shouldn't rate the game, because you're not rating its quality, but rating by your taste over its genre. I personally liked it a lot, it's mainly based on your choices throughout the game, and it's more focused on the story than killing zombies like a retarded. Expand

    I am seriously enjoying this game. Whilst it can be repetitive, it is in a good way, as there are many variations to apporach your typical RTS. If I were writing it, I'd change a few things, thus the 9 rating, but all in all, it's a game worth having in the collection, and I have to say, multiplayer on a XL map is fantastic! Expand
