Product Description

Platform: PC | Edition: Standard

In the world of Majesty, you are the ruler of the kingdom. At your service are your loyal and somewhat obnoxious subordinates, who have their own minds about how things should be done. In fact, Majesty is the only game where your heroes decide on their own what should be done and when, leaving you to try to control them through monetary incentives.

2.0 out of 5 stars Starts with promise, ends with dissapointment September 21, 2009
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The first Majesty was a niche game that combined some city-management along with some real-time-strategy elements. It wasn't a first-line title by a long shot, but it was a lot of light fun. Majesty II starts with the same basic premise and ideas and gives the game a much needed graphical update.

Yet, despite what should be a great premise, flaws in the game become legion. In nearly every single way except graphics, the game falls far short of the original. The scenarios, beyond the first few, become glorified defenses against 'zerg rushes'. The AI of your heroes, the key to any game, is abysmal. Each mission becomes a quest of 'beat the right spawn points, in the right order, or lose', a guessing game on how the designers put the mission together. The blatantly bad AI is 'made up for' with increasingly insane levels of difficulty for the monsters you must fight. Strategy becomes virtually non-existant.

To make matters worse, unlike the first game, there is no random map generator. There's the campaign, and a few 'set' encounter maps, and nothing else. There is also no tool for creating new maps to play on, so even that functionality is gone. It's a game that, if you can slog through it, lasts about three to four days of play time. After that, there's no point in playing.

If this had been a budget title, $19.99 or so, or sold in the discount racks in a jewel case (which is, coincidentally, how you can currently find the first game's Gold version), some of these flaws might be forgiven. Unfortunately, at a $40 price point, it's supposed to be a top-line title, and it certainly isn't. Anyone interested in this type of game should save themselves the bother and find the far superior original game. Failing that, read a book instead.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you liked the original, steer clear of the sequel. October 1, 2009
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Long ago a picked up Majesty 1 by chance and was very impressed. The addictive game play and unique features (not having direct control of units for example) set the game apart from many other strategy games of its time. So when I saw the release of Majesty 2 I had high hopes. However, after a few days playing I was not only disappointed but frustrated to the point of uninstallation. The best thing about this game is that it reminded me how fun its predecessor was. The customization options have been dumbed down, the AI is terrible, the game goes from easy to incredibly difficult within a few missions, and my biggest complaint, NO FREE PLAY.

There are only two single player modes; campaign and single mission. Campaign mode is very similar to its predecessor, there are different missions each with their own objectives and difficulty settings. In single mission mode you get to pick from a very short list of missions with no difficulty settings or any tweakable settings for that matter. If you want a casual game don't pick single mission. With almost constant enemy attacks and heroes that will walk right by a monster sooner than attack them without a bounty you don't get much time to explore the features of city building. Additionally, the option players had in Majesty 1 to continue game play after the mission was completed was removed in this sequel as well.

The AI feels much worse than Majesty 1. I can't even count how often a monster will by attacking a structure while heroes walk right by, sometimes even going into the attacked building to buy goods as if nothing was wrong.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Sequel to Great Game September 22, 2009
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The sequel to Cyberlore's original "Majesty", released in 2000, "Majesty 2" is a Fantasy Kingdom Simulator by a completely different studio that attempts to uphold the standard established by its predecessor. In some ways, it succeeded; in other ways, it could not.

Majesty 2 places you in the role of a king ruling over a fantasy realm. As with Majesty 1, you control the realm indirectly; you can hire heroes and cast some spells, but most of the work of the realm is carried out automatically. Once you've hired heroes, you can influence them with reward flags; placing bounties on monsters, or marking certain areas for exploration. Majesty 2 also adds two new flags - a timed "protect" flag that heroes will guard until it expires, and a "fear" flag that warns them to stay away from an area.

The economic system is taken from Majesty as well. Tax collectors are sent out from your castle to the various guilds and markets of your realm. Places for heroes to buy weapons and items are the most prosperous; heroes will go out, slay enemies, and then return laden with gold to spend it on upgrades, and thus bring it into your kingdom's circulation.

Heroes on the whole are similar, too, with a few differences. Warriors are your basic tanks, armed with sword and shield. Rangers carry bows and are the main explorers. Clerics heal allies (though you get them much earlier than you did in Majesty, which is a little unbalancing). Rogues are easily influenced by money, though their design is different than Majesty - they use knives instead of crossbows, which means that they're not particularly helpful in a fight due to their low health. Wizards are powerful spell-slingers, but are weak at low levels.
