Deadlock II: Shrine Wars is a turn based strategy game that allows you to play as seven different races with each race having their own campaign scenarios. Unlike a lot of games in this style, you are just fighting over one planet not managing fleets all over a galaxy. The game was released in 98 but it doesn't look much better than the original 95 game. You will position buildings in order to get the best bonuses to your morale, tech tree, etc. Combat is one of the more disappointing features in the game, you have no control of your units and instead give them orders before a battle beings, the fight will then end and let you know what happened while giving you the option to watch a replay. This could be handled well if the AI was good, unfortunately it isn't and many losses will likely be the fault of the bad AI. The game gives you some options for diplomacy but they are limited and the enemy races seem to do things very randomly. An ok game that didn't make the improvements it should have back when it was released, it is now quite dated and much better strategy games can be found.
