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.

The only thing I found annoying was the brief online activation required prior to gameplay. If you do not have internet access this game will not work for you even if you do not play multiplayer via internet. I found this out the hard way when I tried to install it during an internet outage.
Some of the changes haven't been as good though. The map is the same every time, instead of randomly placed so that you know where everything is and what will happen. Plus, once the quest is over you can't keep playing, even though you may not have completed all the side quests. The new voices aren't as good as the old ones, although the advisor is the same. The music is good. I also miss the free-style mode where you could create your own maps and play.
Overall, I am pleased and I hope they create and release new quests to add to the game. You can sit and play for an hour and not feel that you have to play for three hours or more to get to the next level. It's a fun game to just sit down and play for awhile. I highly recommend this game.
edit-I am updating this review because Paradox has updated some of the games features. It now has a button that lets you choose to randomize the map. It isn't quite as random as the original Majesty but it certainly makes the expert Quests more difficult than they already are if you are up to the challenge. They have also included a freestyle mode. So I am moving this game up to 5 stars and hoping that they come out with Majesty 3 or more expansions. This is the one game I come back to year after year and it really speeds up the long hours on a plane!
The game itself is fun, but as you go up in the realms, it becomes insanely difficult. It appears that the game is set up to make you die unless you do certain things. Example, "The Gold Chyort" will drive you nuts, how do you survive? You make your base and then get wiped out. You emphasize on defense and still get wiped out. Read the walk-throughs out there on the net, you will need it.
The game has a strong "World of Warcraft" feel, you have to gather resources (money), research for better defense as well as offense, increasing armor, etc. It is a fun game until you hit the levels where it goes insane. Do not go and think that you can clear the map and get everything.
The graphics is very good and the game does not demand a great computer system to play on so a very good trade off.
In the end, a really fun game; tip. Make sure to get the drawven base, you get a kick-butt defensive post which has a good range to cover and is devastating to the creature that attack you, but costs a lot so place them in well positioned areas.
I know this game has been compared a lot to Warcraft, Age of Empires, Starcraft and the like (which I have all played) but in my opinion it is in its own little niche. It is an RTS but the inability to issue direct commands makes for some really interesting game play. I found it to be very entertaining trying to decide how much to pay my heroes in order to accomplish tasks versus saving the money to buy upgrades or new heroes. Overall, I found it to be a very original idea.
I did not find the difficulty to be too challenging but neither did I find it to be simple. Generally I was able to pass the missions on my first try though a few I did have to restart once. Usually, once you find a good defensive mix of units you can survive long enough to build up and win. There did not appear to be a huge amount of viable strategies but there was definitely more than one path you could choose.
Overall, the game was fun, the graphics were pretty good (not award winning but didn't make my eyes bleed or anything), and the sound was amusing and didn't get repetitive enough to be annoying. With about 1 hour of play per campaign mission there was good 20 hours of game play plus the non-campaign scenarios. Well worth it if you can get a good deal on price.
