Summary: I'm going to give it a 10/10 because of the idiotic mediocre CRITIC reviews. The game is very detailed and addicting, there are many features in this game, and at the same time it doesn't have a steep learning curve. Graphics are outdated, so I didn't touch it until my graphics card burned out, and I'm glad it did because that was pretty much the only reason why I decided to start up this game.
Summary: KOH is an excellent medieval RTS, very underrated and unknown by many players. It was originally released in Belgium 2004 by Sunflowers and then by Paradox for North America in 2005. Developed by Black Sea Studios, (now Crytek Black Sea) they did a fantastic job on this game. However, there are some things I don't like about it, and it's merely personal preference. Despite KOH being a great RTS, it does tend to get a little boring and repetitive after awhile.
Summary: One of the best strategy games ever, the cartoony style is made with sense and is a plus. Game offers a good chalange, conquering the whole map is satisfying ^^ Interesting model of building your cities, you basically decide what buildings you put in, this way you can focus on economy or military aspect of a given city. Kingdom Advantages system is also a great idea, ecourages expansion.
Summary: One of best strategy game there, it is a mix between paradox titles like EU and Total war, everything else is just amazing, I do not what to say, but it is really balanced and there are so much to do, feels like a grand strategy but still have this RTS feel, Unlike total war games the campaing map played in real time (which is much better than Turn based style), the battles played like total war but everything in 2D, siege battles are amazing too, the art style of game...
Summary: I love this game for the following aspects: Strategy in real time, no turn based, with high replay value and it's easy to play for initiates. No big fancy graphics but they're absolutely on the level. There's developing, recruiting, espionage, coups to take other countries by inheritance with a carefully planned marriage, family to keep your dynasty living on, generals and other vassals to upgrade.
Summary: As with most strategy games, Knights of Honor is a little difficult to learn, if one is not accustomed to the genre. The developers thought it was a good idea to prevent players from skipping through three different introductions from gaming companies and an intro that is almost three minutes long. This is absolutely unacceptable.

From a tiny kindom with limited resources its up to you to grow into an awe inspiring nation that can rock the very foundations of medieval europe.

Conclusion: Engaging and addictive from the start. This is an easy to learn game which has a great deal going on all the time. Whilst you are building up your cities you have to keep an eye out for attackers and also make sure you dont fall foul of the great powers until you become one of them. Your King and princes may be used in battle or for other purposes but be careful you dont lose them or your populus will become unhappy.
