How many three year old games look as good as Brutal Legend on the PC?

Quarter to Three
1 March 2013
  • Excerpt: 2009 was literally years ago in videogaming. When you play games like Crysis 3, Guild Wars 2, Tomb Raider, and Wargame: European Escalation, it feels like 2009 is to 2013 what 1995 was to 2009. But playing Brutal Legend on the PC makes 2009 feel like 2013, which is especially surprising considering how long this game languished in development limbo/publisher hell. Wasn’t this a Playstation 2 game at one point? That’s nearly two Playstations ago!

Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim

Auracore MediaWorks

  • Summary: The same uniqueness that made 'Majesty' a success is back with added flair.
  • Pros: Original gameplay elements are intact and still refreshing; graphics and audio have improved significantly; can hold onto your strongest heroes for future missions.
  • Cons: Missions become repetitive and boring after so long; no predetermined campaign path to create a sense of plot.

Finding The Majesty Again

GIN
23 September 2009
  • Excerpt: It's so rare to find a truly innovative game anymore. Sure, there are great titles that come out fairly often, but are they truly innovative, or just more of the same? Nine years ago when we reviewed Majesty, we were a little taken aback. Here was a real time strategy game where you didn't actually control your units (called heroes), at least not directly. So no tank rushes or tree chopping was needed.

  • Conclusion: Жизнь нас научила – вторая часть в большинстве случаев гораздо хуже оригинала. Частенько это лишь паразитирование на оригинальной идее. Особенно ужасно выходит, когда за продолжение берутся те, кто не имел отношения к первому проекту. И вот – перед нами как раз такой случай. Российская компания спустя десять лет выпускает новую . Увидим ли мы исключение? Жанр у крайне редкий. Стратегия непрямого контроля.
  • Pros: отличный и необычный игровой процесс; изумительная атмосфера.
  • Cons: затянутые последние миссии; баги.

Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim

Страна игр
4 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Когда-то игровая общественность испытала сильнейший шок: появилась стратегия с непрямым управлением – Majesty . Здесь нельзя было ухватить за шкирку первого попавшегося крестьянина и отправить его рубить дрова. Здесь нельзя было приказать толпе послушных человечков дружно двинуть на врага. Как истый монарх, геймер издавал указы, а подданные их выполняли или выразительно крутили пальцем у виска – «Сам вали дракона за такие деньги!». Игра, помнится, имела бурный успех.
