As for the things that are present in the game, the military and economic campaigns, don't expect a pre-rendered cinematic to kick off the story as seen in SH2, all you get are some pencil drawn storyboards, the sort of thing that had to be on display when they were selling the idea originally, or talking about as they created the game, some games pull it off, this one doesn't in my opinion.Read more ›
The economics are completely out of whack. In the first economic campaign I had to have 8 apple farms running to feed 16 people.. They produce too slowly. How can wolves attack archers who are standing behind a wall on a platform.
It makes no sense. DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS RUBBISH....
The wild animals (especially the bears in mission 5) are very hard to see in your town and they can easily outrun your melee guys. So they often go around randomly killing your villagers while you try to catch them, once you actually see them. The AI on a couple of missions (I am on 7 so far) seems to be stuck on ass-kicking mode. The waves just keep coming regardless of how quickly you try to build units. However, this would be fine except for the fact that peasant spawns are much slower now, due to the new way that they calculate popularity rating. Even when you jack up popularity with a church using candles (yea that's right candles), and money bribes, sometimes you just can't keep up very well. The propensity of your popularity to go into the crapper during any given mission is very high due to random fires, multiple wild animal attacks and what seems like a much too high usage of food given the amount of farm resources you build.
I have seen my friendly units get stuck in place many times so far. They cannot be disbanded or moved, which is a serious bug. The way walls are built is a bit non-intuitive. The units are also a total pain in the ass to get up on the gate houses, walls and towers. Instead of just clicking on the top of a tower or gatehouse, you mouse over the object you want to enter until you get a "stairs" icon.Read more ›

Very VERY unhappy with this product. I bought it described as new-- the box was beat up and it wasn't sealed. I don't know if I was sent the wrong one by mistake. Read morePublished 19 days ago by jlovek247
