Review: Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim

“Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim initially looks like just about any other average fantasy real-time strategy game out there. You’ll find there are many familiar activities to engage in, like erecting important buildings, hiring units, upgrading abilities, expanding your kingdom, exploring foggy maps, and defeating swarms of foes. However, there’s a catch: you can’t directly control any of your units. This was a unique and challenging concept the original game received high marks for almost a decade ago. With a facelift and a few new features, the formula still feels new and exciting in this long-awaited sequel.”

Review: East India Company

“There’s something almost freeing about being able to focus your empire building efforts solely on maintaining ports for trade and expanding your seaworthy fleet. So many strategy games – even those with seafaring elements – keep players shackled to managing troops and resources on land that it’s a welcome change to be concerned solely with the naval elements. Balancing your attention between being a shrewd businessperson with an eye for economic gain and becoming a formidable adversary when negotiations between competing factions inevitably break down is quite engaging, assuming you don’t fall prey to some of the game’s tough love.”
