Seems like Dreamstation.cc wanted to review the Majesty 2 build with Russian voices. They seemed to like it though, scoring the game 95%.

"Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim is really shaping up to be a gem. If you enjoy RTS games and also enjoy RPG elements being mixed in you will most likely love this title."

Bite My Review

Conclusions
If you’re one of those people that like to take old games you haven’t played in years, install them, update drivers, live with awful resolutions and failed expectations, then Majesty 2 is the game for you — except without all that trouble. Plus, it’s prettier. I like shiney.

In other words Majesty 2 is pretty darn good, it got rated 4\5 stars :).

Cheat Code Central

Majesty 2 brings some fresh updates and spruces up the overall gameplay to make up for almost an entire decade of technological advances in between the games. It isn't cutting edge by any means, but the modern touch will no doubt bring many new players into the fold. They won't be disappointed.
Earned a 4.1 out of 5.0, which equates to "Great".

Hooked Gamers

Majesty 2's unique heroes system certainly offers some refreshing gameplay during the earlier missions of the game. Later on, however, the gameplay grows a bit repetitive. While each mission has slightly different goals, they play out pretty much the same. You build and defend against incoming foes until you are strong enough and then you go after your main objective. The difficulty is increased by the speed at which enemies increase their numbers, and that's it. There are no further special challenges to be found here. That by no means suggests that Majesty 2 is a boring game, but if you are looking for something that challenges you to your limits, this game is not for you. If you are looking for something that you can play at a leisurely pace that doesn't wreck your nerves or your brain, then Majesty 2 is sure to please.
Scoring a 7.8 out of 10 overall (not an average), which seems promising :).

Gamer Limit

Majesty 2 succeeds in delivering a new kind of RTS experience. The removal of direct control promotes new tactics, especially in multiplayer, and provides a different way to progress through yet another RTS campaign. While the lack of overall objective variety along with a lower difficulty level ends up providing a reasonably shallow single player campaign, the process of creating new bases and watching your heroes’ create their own destinies never gets old. Genre fans should jump on this one.

With an overall score of 8.5 out of 10 - "Majesty 2 wins you over with its style, presentation and creative twist on the standard RTS formula. I'd highly recommend it to any strategy fan!"

"Final Verdict

The fact Majesty 2 is bursting with charm and oodles of fine detail makes it a rewarding and memorable fantasy simulation. Ultimately this is a game that crosses the boundaries of several genres and will have mass appeal – we doubt you’ll want to do the dirty work yourself again after playing Majesty 2."

8.6/10
