Summary: I loved DOTC for the NES, and this one expounds on it. It's similar enough to appeal to fans of the older versions, yet different enough that it's not the same game. The battles retain the appearance of the original with representations of units, but instead of just giving your troops an overall...
Summary: My favorite part of the game is the castle seiges, as Little John puts it (years to build minutes to tear down).

If you like the old school versions, you'll LOVE this game!!
