The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Majesty 2 offers is an interesting change of pace. The potential of a one-step-removed RTS game remains just as potent today as it was back in 2000, but there still isn't much here aside from the cool bedrock concept. Replay value is minimal, due to the repetitive nature of solo missions and being forced to clear the same old monster dens in the four-player multiplayer maps. So as much as the still-unique design seems fresh and exciting at first for newcomers, and offers up a blast of nostalgia for Majesty veterans, the thrill wears off quickly.
