Summary: I saw this game at best buy for only 20 bucks, and I love the time period, the graphics on the back looked cool so I gave it a shot. Unfortunatly I got kinda bored with it within a couple of minutes. This game is nothing but eye candy, the graphics are great, but there is no strategy involved at all. At least with games like AOK, there is strategy involved with balacing military units.
Summary: This game "Highland Warriors" is a result of some great ideas and and some nice intentions that was very poorly implemented. What is the point in having awesome graphics, when the released game can be at best described as a beta software. You create one user profile and next time you start the game u see 4 user profiles with the same name !!! Every time a in game cinemetics appear, you can go and have a nap. What is the use if you need a super computer for this?
Summary: This game looks wonderful, and when I can afford to upgrade from my outdated 16mb graphics card (a Voodoo3 2000 AGP) to a 32mb card, I will dive in! Just a friendly caution to check your computer's specs before buying - you'll also need at least 800mhz to play this.
Summary: While I like the storyline to this game, the game play just isn't that good. It's a very easy game to beat. My recomendation... download the free demo for this thing before you buy it. Decide then.
Summary: Some of the gameplay in Highland Warriors may not be as polished as some of the "classics," but the graphics and options more than make up for it. You can get rid of buttons and icons if they're in the way, you can set your battles and use the camera to zoom in and watch all the units close up, and you'll never have to play the same game twice if you use the map editor. The changing weather, heroes and battle formations are nice touches, too.
Summary: great game. finally something that isn't orcs or gods - been done over and over, yet that is all you ever see. highland warriors gives you something new - a look back and the chance to play with history. william wallace, robert the bruce and king edy I are brought to life with you at the controls.
Summary: I am really digging the true 3D aspect of this game, and the rotational camera control is very cool. Where the game play may not be as superior as Star Craft or War Craft, Highland Warriors is very fun to play and there is no doubt that HW is the most graphically superior RTS game to date. Also a must for Scottish history geeks.
Summary: Great game. I have always been annoyed by the camera angles in RTS games. Highland Warriors has full zoom and camera rotation so you can pretty much view the game any way you want! With graphics this good, you are going to be zooming in an out of battles more often than not!
Summary: This game is incredible! The graphics surpass that of the other games. Robert the Bruce and William Wallace...battles that won't be forgotten. The detail when you zoom-in is awesome! This is a must buy, I can't wait to get it.
