Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim
Not Exactly the best sequal I played....
Greetings, Lately, I had a chance to play this game and I have to say that I was a bit disappointed. The game keeps to its predessessor. However, the game lacks in may areas. For starters, I was attempting to play the first story in the scenarios but found it was too challenging for me to learn the game's engine. I found that the game's graphics (while slightly enhanced) still didn't wow me. I was also expecting more from the sound. In today's market, 5.1 is a good surround sound setting. This setting seems to be standard for games today. The interface was pretty familiar to me and is very similar to Majesty 1 if not exact. As for the storyline, nothing has changed. You still play the King of the land. The AI, needs a total redesign. The AI of your guards and so on need to be more assertive and follow your demands. Unfortunately, I think the AI is what makes the overall experience lacking. However, I am not totally one-sided. Overall the game is nice to have if you want to experience Majesty the way you remember from the good old days.
Great Sequel to a Great Game!
Nobody has ever heard of Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim, but it was a great RTS style game where you couldn't directly control your units( or heroes). On paper, this sounds like a disaster, but the game did it very well, and it is one of my most favorite games. Majesty 2 looks like solid sequel, and anybody who loves RTS games should try the bizarre play style of this game. I was thinking the online would be fun, but then I saw it is through gamespy, ew.
If its like the first...
it'll be one of the most fun strategy games you'll ever play. I still play Majesty on freestyle to this day. Hero units who act haphazardly and sometimes comically under their own free will. I've been waiting for this for a long time, here hoping the sequel could be a sleeper hit just like the first.
