Classic kingdom

Become a ruler and set rewards for completing your aims. You cannot control directly your units. You can only develop your kingdom and give rewards for example for killing a werewolf, destroying monster's lair or discovering new areas. That is why it's still unique. 2D graphics aged quite well, so it's still nice looking game. Worth buying especially with widescreen support.

Inventive look at the other side

Most of us has played lots of games where you are the adventurer who seeks fame and glory, killing monsters and buying new gear with all your loot. In this game however the roles are different, now it is you who rule the kingdom; infested with ravenous beast ready to rip your subjects apart. Now you must build a town that adventurers from far and wide would like to lend their services to and you must make sure that the everything from shops to inns are in perfect order. The adventurers do not take orders from anyone, however by utilising your wealth you can "encourage" would be heroes to fight in your name through bounties and exploration flags. There is a full campaing with increasingly difficult lands to conquer but it is ut to you to unite the lands under your control. Beware though, that this is an older game and as such controls can be difficult to grasp at first and requires some patience before you get rolling.

An interesting RTS classic

An RTS with a twist! Like many RTS games, Majesty has you go out and establish new towns and fight off ravening hordes of monsters. Unlike many RTS games, here the heroes don’t listen to you. The game becomes a matter of coaxing, cajoling, and eventually downright bribing heroes to go forth and do what you want them to, adding an extra layer of complexity to an otherwise ordinary game. It also picks up quite a bit of replayability between this and the randomly generated maps. Beware though, this first iteration of the series has rather finicky controls and can be quite hard to pick up and play, requiring a bit of time to understand all the quirks. Nonetheless, an excellent game with a unique twist.
