    This was one of the first games i played and i still think it rocks.

    Rated on May 23, 2008 by JollyBobby123

    The game looks pretty unappealing when you just see the images and thats because it's so old but after playing it you begin to understand that for it's time it was revolutionary.Sure the graphics were...

    It really tries to be an excellent game, but it doesnt pull it off.

    deep gameplay marred by bugs

    lom was quite a deep unique game, with a mixture of turn based, realtime strategy and some rpg elements thrown in unfortunately the game was broken. The original release was quite buggy with horrendou...

    This game strikes and emotional appeal.

    This was among others one of the first games I've ever played. Although it got a 6.3 by GameSpot, and a 7-7.5 from you guys, I think it deserves more. This game provides 8 different classes of a turn ...

    Good Idea, Bad in Play

    Rated on February 10, 2006 by DragonFire_CK

    While the overall game idea is great, I have found that it is quite difficult to figure out how to play. It seems it takes excessively long to generate a decent army, even one capable of traveling a s...

    Breakdown of the game-you pick a faith lord and you start tackling maruaders to gain xp and defeat balkoth lord of death

    Rated on August 18, 2007 by warnexus100

    i bought the special edition 4-5 years ago instead of the original version. From my point of view, the game is very good at its time. Everything for the most part works. Main Objective: Defeat Balkoth...

    This is perhaps the best game I have played. There needs to be a good sequel with better scenario and more units.

    Rated on December 08, 2007 by Lord_Cylamus

    Another version of this game needs to be made, I am amazed that this game never really caught on. Is there any company that will make something like this with more stuff and better graphics? There i...

    I love this game, and who can justify true love.

    Rated on March 28, 2007 by Dzoldzaya

    In the pointlessly nostalgia- hazed days of my youth, I played a demo of this game on a computer that couldn't run it for more than 5 minutes at a time. Then gradually, as the hollow shell of my life ...
