The Gamers Temple
9 August 2004
  • Excerpt: Date: 7/19/2005 By Tim Jordan A big map, fog of war, and enemies all around. What’s a leader to do? Well, construct buildings, gather resources, and build military might to win control of ancient Scotland. A campaign scenario from Age of Empires? No. The latest offering from Data Becker, Highland Warriors.

  • Excerpt: It is interesting to ponder why Data Becker didn't want the theatrical license to this material. Of the four campaigns in Highland Warriors, one is totally devoted to William Wallace, the Scottish hero popularized in the film Braveheart. Other titles focusing on this milieu have come and gone, but the genre is still left with a void simply because it has never been done right. After spending some time with Highland Warriors, it still isn't right.

If It's Not Scottish, It's"

GIN
7 July 2003
  • Excerpt: Yep! It's Another real time strategy (RTS) game where you gather the raw materials, make buildings that can manufacture troops, research technologies that allow better buildings to make better troops armor and weapons etc. But this one has a few differences plus a decided "Scottish flavor" to it. The graphics are ok. They are choppy at times, but generally ok for this type of game.

The Wargamer
8 April 2003
  • Excerpt: 400 years later Edward I, also known as the "Hammer of the Scots" engulfed the land in a great feud. It was not long before Edward I controlled most of Scotland. The Scots, led by William Wallace and Robert the Bruce, are left to fight what seems to be a futile war for freedom. This is the time when legends are born… ...And, in 2003, the release of Highland Warriors is released to mixed reviews, mostly on the low side.

  • Excerpt: "A sprinkle of things Scottish and perhaps a good pint or two make this title a little more than hit-or-miss, with a tiny lean towards hit.

  • Summary: You may remember Data Becker's previous game, America. It was a 2D real-time strategy game styled after the Age of Empires series, and it was, not surprisingly, set in America. Data Becker's newest game, Highland Warriors, takes place in a different era on a different continent. The game does a good job of portraying the units and landscapes that you'd expect to see in a game that takes place in medieval Scotland, but unfortunately, Highland Warriors' historical accuracy...
  • Pros: N/A

Der Angriff der Echtzeit-Schotten scheitert an disziplinlosen Kämpfern.

13 March 2005
  • Excerpt: Die schottischen Warlords ziehen eindrucksvolle Flammenwände hinter ihrem Schlachtross her. Pech nur, dass unsere Waldläufer Reitersperren errichtet haben. [Quelle: ] Wer Braveheart gesehen hat, kennt die Story: Die Schotten mussten sich in ihrer bewegten Geschichte allerhand Invasoren erwehren, darunter der Wikinger und der letztendlich siegreichen Engländer. Wenn sie nicht gerade Fremde verdroschen, gaben sich die einheimischen Clans gegenseitig eins auf die Mütze.
