Game Description:Strategy/action game that combines turn-based gameplay with real-time combat. This sequel boasts an entirely new engine producing refined gameplay and improved graphics (although the game is now a few years old). Set in a medieval world the gameplay involves resource management and strategic combat. You take the role of a local ruler who attempts to build up his power base until he gains control of the entire land. In order to do this, you'll have to keep you subjects happy or they'll move elsewhere. You control many areas of your fiefdom including rationing, agriculture, trade, weapons production, building and the development of your army. During combat you can allow the computer to automatically work out the results. The game has a lot of depth and a tutorial is incorporated to help you. Good cutscenes intersperse the action. Alongside the single-player game, is a multi-player mode over LAN, Net or modem/serial connection.
