I played the first one over a friends house, and I believed it to be one of the best games I had ever played, so when I found out there was a second I was overjoyed. I bought it on Gamefly last week, and got to playing it and MAN is it difficult... This game is hard, but I love it. It's everything you could want in a Fantasy Sim game, dragons, wizards, elves, dwarves. I reccomend this game to any Sim fans out there.
