Majesty 2

Anybody played this game? It's on sale on steam for 7.50 but I've allready bought Tropico 3, Civilization 4, and I've got The Settlers 7. That's a lot of a certain type of game that I'm not even all that into. I mean it's fun but I wouldn't call it my go to genre, know what I mean? Anyway I just thought I'd see what other around here think of it.

I noticed the recommended hardware is pretty high too.

Settlers 7 is a godly purchase. I've played Majesty 2, little different to the first one but very good game. I never did complete it though. Got to the last stage and it just for some reason goes super cheap on me. Great game though.

I read about it. The difficulty is way high and the game has all sorts of issues that the developers have never patched. They even released an expansion pack that's *harder* and still fixes zero things that are wrong with the game.

I guess if ya don't mind the difficulty, it's a good buy, though.

I didnt see anything broken in the game. Just difficulty was high. I guess thats a good thing for people who love playing games at high difficulty.

After getting my ass royally kicked while trying the demo a few times, I decided it was too difficult for my tastes.

You just need to build quickly is all. Get some defenses up like 3-4 arrow towers and then slowly build your army. Lots of cheap archers and rogues. Use the rogues ability to take heaps of money each time it cycles, and build up some soldiers for strength. Dont bother with upgrading them in the first few levels. Numbers beats strength in the first half.

Building fast is deffinatly not my strong suit. That's my I like Tropico. I didn't know there was a demo. I'll try that out and see how I like it.

Majesty 2 tells the tale of a line of kings who united the land and cleansed it of all evil. In fact, the kings did their job so well that the last king, Leonard, was left without a foe to prove himself against, a rival to conquer or a threat to his prosperity. Hoping to prove worthy of the crown, Leonard and his court magicians summoned the Demonlord from Hell, who was much more dangerous than the ignorant people knew. Overwhelming the mages, the demon slew Leonard and the other lords of the land that dared to enter its domain. Even worse, it ushered back all of the monsters and creatures that had been removed from the kingdom.
