Asso Posted June 19, 2005 Report Share Posted June 19, 2005 Check this. It's a game about medieval skirmishes, both on foot and on horseback. You play the role of a young man seeking fortune in a medieval world (this means no dragons, no spells, just man, horses and iron). Reminds me of Pirates! a bit. You go from town to town seeking missions and trading goods. You can then equip yourself with better weapons and horses and recruit a group of soldiers. Then you go battling around the world for one of the two main houses. Battles are a lot of fun: you can mount your horse and charge your enemies while ordering your mates to back up you. The fighting system is really well done, with different types of attacks and the possibility to parry blows with a shield or with your weapon. You can also combat in an arena to make experience and money without taking risks, except loosing some $$$ (you can both bet money on you or, if you simply watch the fight without taking part, for one of the two teams). It costs only 10$ if you buy it now that it's still in beta (instead of 25$ of the final release). Don't fool yourselves: even if it's at an early stage (current version is 0.632) it's higly enjoyable and without show-stopping bugs. Just to tell you a thing of this game that excited me quite a lot: I was in the arena on foot with a bow for weapon, and a knight with a lance was charging me. I fired my arrow, killing his horse. The horse fell launching the knight far away (just like in the film "Braveheart" when William Wallace hit the legs of the english general's horse at Stirling), and by the time he was standing again I had another arrow ready...
