XIII Century – Gold Edition reviews and comments

Translated by

I was Just running around in circles while my horse archers shot their enemies. Then They stopped firing at all and in the middle battle were the very first, while the rest of the troops stood behind them and watched. When a warrior with a banner remained from the enemy squad, he ran to the edge of the map. On my orders to finish him, the troops ran all around him, until he ran to the edge. Filtering and smoothing add a unique effect to the game-black screen in battles. Voice and description of events liked. And animation squads not bad) For one fight game will go. 5 running in a circle of 10 units

XIII Century-A game that, unfortunately, has not gained popularity as Cossacks or Blitzkrieg. The Authors decided to get rid of the economic component, leaving only the military. The Gameplay Under your control There are several formations, each of which consists of a certain number of units (36, 72 people and more). Your task is simple-to break the army of the enemy. However, literally from the first mission of a ALA battle before us the problem arises because the army of the enemy is always at least 1.5-2 times more than ours and most often stronger. That is, you can immediately forget about the typical for RTS zorg-Rashe all and all. It'S not going to do that. The AI will immediately find you. Also, the troops have morals. It is as complicated as it makes the game easier. If your squad is tight, he can panic and flee. I've Had such a lot of things, and even those units, which seem to have had a good onslaught, panicked. That's Why the mechanics of morality cause me big questions. But on the other hand, attacking the cavalry for example, archers or any other detachment from the general troops, you let them escape and it is quite possible to win thanks to this battle. After each mission you are paid a certain amount for which you collect and improve your army (available only in the Russian campaign for the Prince of Pskov). Campaign. There are quite a lot of Them and for different sides. Battles are authentically recreated, and therefore you can not buy troops. There is one large for the Prince of Pskov and a dozen more smaller. The Russian company is complicated and I have stalled on the final battle. From everyone especially liked to play for Mongols for infantry they have no-one cavalry. The Gameplay is unique and allows you to invent a lot of tactics. But don't expect any plot. You will be told the essence of the conflict and will be allowed to fight. Technical side But It's not all smooth. On Win10 The game starts but can hang or crash at any time (especially if you ship the saves) so be prepared for it. And about the saves-I advise to endure and pass each mission at once because I have happened that the SEv did not work especially when you closed the game. Or save several times-it helped me, though not always. Graphics. Pleasant. Never a special thing, but the eye doesn't cut. Well done lighting for HDR. Total Better take a discount. It would be better if the slaves fixed the compatibility problems on the modern OS.
