  1. There is an undeniably addictive quality about this release, but it is so far overshadowed by the shallow nature of the gameplay that its power to enchant will be tested with all but the most ardent groupies.
  2. A fun, quick, stripped down turn based strategy game. Instead of placing emphasis on hardcore micromanagement, small worries like resource gathering and the like are taken right out of your hands and exchanged for some slight action.
  3. Doesn’t live up to its illustrious predecessors. So many changes has cost the game its identity.

    The battling is appealing for a while but soon becomes a bit repetitive. Fortunately the game’s graphics are nice-looking and crisp and the sound (especially the music) is excellent.

Patch 1.05 makes this one of the most challenging and hardest games I've ever played. The bugs are gone and the strong AI is in and if I know many of you out there reading this that is what you want to know about most is how good is the AI? Well it will stomp you on just medium difficulty time and time again. You'll need some strong retinues to get to the higher levels of difficulty also. Great game buy it if you can still find it.
