Game Review

Lords of the Realm II is a strategy meets resource management computer game developed by Impressions Games and published by Sierra On-Line in 1996. It is the second game in the series started with Lords of the Realm. It is not so much a sequel as it is a remake that features enhanced graphics and improved gameplay mechanics.

The game is set in medieval times and the storyline is just like the first one. The King has died without an heir, leaving his throne ripe for the taking. Five lords are fighting against each other for control of the throne. You can choose to play as the Baron, the Bishop, the Countess, the Knight, or the Princess and set out on your task to take over the realm. You need to conquer counties and set up your castles to stake your claim. Your citizens do your bidding by farming or fighting and everything in between. The resource management is turn based and the turns are marked by changes in season. Also engage in combat with enemy troops using a variety of unit types, though there are no fantasy folk or mages among their ranks. During combat control a single unit or entire formations at once. You can also skip the battle and let the computer decide the outcome. Claim victory by either capturing the enemy flag or annihilate them all.

Lords of the Realm has a simple interface that is easy to pick up. This game is a good starting point for those new to the genre as there is not as much micromanagement. Though they might want to set the difficulty lower. Challenging and well-balanced, this is a good title for strategy enthusiasts as well.
