I had very high hopes for this game when it was released. I rented it from GameFly and at first I loved it! Than as the game progressed and I had to battle more creatures the controls totally ruined the game for me..I'd get so fraustred I finally just sent it back. Maybe if you have more patience than I, this would be the game for you. I really did enjoy the concept of the game..making your citizens archers farmers and so on. That was fun. And going around the kingdom to find treasure was also fun. But soon, as you need to progress threw the game it was just to diffucult to send your people into battle. They never went where I wanted em to go and if I was a little to far away they would just come back and not do anything.. I really did enjoy the concept of the game but think they could have done much better when it came to the battle control.
This is a great little strategy game. Build your kingdom, train your lazy subjects, marry lots, and take over the world! The game looks a little cutesy, but it requires some strategy to defeat your major opponents. Enjoyable game that takes time to complete, but no replay value.
