5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Time Vampire April 9, 2012
By Matt
Downloaded this game because it was on sale and it did not disappoint. Great story line, involved kingdom building (pay attention to the climate you are in!!), and good real time battle elements. Great game all around, if you like empire building games and/or RTS, you will not be disappointed with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favorite! March 5, 2014
This is one of my favorite games. Lots of gameplay value for the money. If you like RTS games with a sense of humor and a little challenge, this is a good choice. You can play the different missions with different heroes - some heroes are better for some missions than others.

I've played it on different platforms including Windows 7 so I don't understand why other users are having problems. I use the CD version and not the download but I don't know why that would make a difference.

1.0 out of 5 stars Caveat Emptor December 1, 2013
By ColoEng

I feel cheated by Amazon on this. The product listing clearly stated that this game is compatible with Windows 7, but the product literature (and game producer) confirm this is not the case. A work around might be possible, but I would not have purchased the software if I had understood that it wouldn't work for me.

Caveat Emptor. I will be wary about buying downloaded games from Amazon in the future.
