Pros: A Build-up Technically inspiring game, which also requires Tricky Situations to solve. Disadvantage: Unfortunately only English Version.

The first best RTS in the world. Released in 2003, it was is is for me an exellent game, played with your friends, but solo his life expectancy is reduced once the campaign mode is over. 20/20 for this time strategy game.

The game is reduced to 1/4 from your screen at the bottom left. The idea is good. Good additions (ex: peasants who will make farms on their own). The gameplay is fine, it works. The camera is null (if you zoom it puts the horizontal view and when you zoom out it is a top view). It lacks small + like going on the inactive or selected unit. Additional negative point, the AI is overpowered. You can have an army to defend your farms but the AI will do mass cavalry and disperse them (as if there were 1 human behind each rider) passing right next to your troops to kill your peasants with surgical precision. It's tiring.

Warrior King is for me a strategy game apart, it begins to date it is on but it already integrates the system of choice, of alternatve end, of construction of city rather developed (one chooses where to put the ramparts, barracks, villages, etc...). All along the game several good surprises is added, the heros changes of appearance and stats according to the choices made, as well as the buildings that are unlocked as and as you move. These choices distinguish it in 5 ways, for each possible end/unfolding:-ungodlike-Imperial-revolutionary as well as impy/revolutionary Imperial/revolutionary. So if you decide to help a witch, say goodbye to the healing monks. Moreover, if you take your time and explore the entire map, several small quetes are added, allowing for a significant bonus and extra play time for a game that has a good lifespan. But voila, Warrior Kings battles is nothing more than a horribly lighed copy! Farewell hero, mission objective, choice of impact, secondary quests, interactive element on the map.... and say hello to a inheritance proceedings of skirmish! 3 basics, a map and that's it! goal in all missions: destroy! In short we turn fast in loop.. especially that almost all maps were taken over, the deleted cited as well as the NPC. It certainly has 2-3 units in +.... but we are far from the original! conclusion: turn to Warrior King first of the name, it is definitely worth the detour! battles is really not worth the shot, even on promo, as much throw skirmishes with 2 enemies and we have Warrior King battles gratis! It adds absolutely nothing except the 2-3 unitated and all the charm is removed!
