Review update – Knights of Honor

June 6th, 2005 by Troy Goodfellow · No Comments · Uncategorized

My review of Knights of Honor is published in this month’s (July) Computer Games Magazine. It’s an enjoyable little game that has ambitions bigger than its originality. It treads some very familiar territory and seems to intentionally mimick every Medieval strategy game from the last five years.

This melange of other similar games mixes to create something very much like everything that has gone before but still ends up pretty unique. As a starter strategy game, I can’t think of a better choice. Hardcore strategists will be entertained, but I have come to the conclusion that it works best as an introduction to more complex games.

Not that Knights of Honor doesn’t have complexity. There can be a lot of things to consider in any decision you make, but there isn’t so much going on at the same time that you will get overwhelmed by pop-ups, crises or wars.
