Game-Play & Features

The game comes with six complete sagas preinstalled. This is enough to keep you playing for a few days or so without getting bored or even slightly tired of the game. Along with the six sagas are various modes to play them in ranging from very easy missions to extremely difficult. To add to the enjoyment, the levels are not named "easy," "hard," etc. but they are labeled according to various social statuses such as a civilian or lord.

Installing more sagas or maps is just about as easy as making a peanut & butter jelly sandwich (assuming you know how to make one...). In the main menu you simply click on the button that states, "Get Add-ons," and it will ask you for the server where the campaigns are stored, which, by default, is already typed in. You click okay after selecting the server and it will display the name, the version, the author, the amount of times downloaded, and also the size of the package. This makes for installing new sagas a breeze for anyone of any age. This is a must-have feature for any game that is expandable through user-driven content.

One of the best parts of the game is the ability to play campaigns multi-player over the LAN or Internet. You have the options to join an official server, join a pre-existing game, host your own game, play a hot-seat game, and play to against the AI. I did not spend too much time playing multi-player because I prefer to be to myself with these kinds of games but I must say, many of the players are beyond amazing. The community is not like many others that are cruel if you are a new player. Once again, multi-player is a must have and with user-driven content, the game gets even better when you thought it would be over.
