Did you ever feel that your RTS games were a little, well, socialist? I mean, you decide where all the houses go, what everyone should work on, how many units to have, and where they should be going at all times. I bet that maintenance cost even goes...

Majesty 2 macht Spaß, bietet aber nicht viel mehr als der fast zehn Jahre ältere Vorgänger. Nach ein paar unterhaltsamen Stunden stellt sich Trott ein und statt Geschick braucht es Geduld für den Sieg. Wer es gemächlich mag,...
