Ships Ahoy - Majesty 2 [Updated]

It looks like Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim is now available in North America, though neither a release announcement nor an official North American release date for 1C:Ino-Co's RTS sequel were ever issued. The game is for sale at e-tailers like Amazon and retailers/e-tailers like GameStop, and for digital distribution via Direct2Drive, Impulse, and Steam. A playable demo is available if you are looking for a sample, and LittleMe points the way to a Protection Walkthrough Part I and Part II video on GameTrailers. Update: The official press release followed this story, here it is, short and sweet:

Today, Paradox Interactive is proud to announce that Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim is available for purchase in retail stores everywhere, as well as all major digital distribution outlets. Fans of the original Majesty and newcomers alike now have the opportunity to partake in the magical adventures found in Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim.

Frustrating that the game is out everywhere, but digital downloads don't unlock until tomorrow afternoon.

My Steam download was unlocked yesterday (Thursday) afternoon. Haven't had much time to play this yet but I enjoyed the demo immensely.

I am starting to think those sewers and graveyards are there to actually give you a chance to level up (and for your homeward heroes to have income) - Since you get a cut of their money when they do not make any money you do not get any cut. (all those enemies are worth money even if you don't assign a flag) - and the raiding enemies are a lot tougher than what you get from sewers and (early) graveyards.

I am now 5 missions into the campaign and find the game quite interesting.. think its cool that enemies sometimes form "raiding groups" and boy to these make for an annoyance when you have lazy heroes (or lords) - my first encounter with 7 lvl 10 Demons all at once was a huge battle (i had more than 20 heroes). Don't forget you can build more than 1 guild, more rangers and more warriors are always needed (and it raises your income ,p) So even if some die you can keep your city defended at least. (it works well to assign a defend flag near the closest building to the graveyard).

Bottom Line - It has some issues (especially some ai deficits) (you'd think close treasure chests are the first thing new heroes explore from their own...) but its a fun game. Don't regret the purchase

It's definitely fun, my only complaint at this point would be the lack of randomness. With Majesty 1, you could restart a scenario and get a new random map (although with creation rules). With 2, after restarting a particular scenario a few times, everything was in identical positions.

Ok, I guess I have a second complaint - the resurrection system. It's both too easy/cheap (don't have to build a temple to get it, and the cost is a factor of unit type + level), and also very frustrating. When a hero dies, it creates a graveyard, where you can go resurrect the hero. But the graveyard also spawns undead. If you're just starting out, and one of your first heroes stupidly dies, that can mean a huge deficit to overcome as your area gets overrun with undead.

Still, I'm having a lot of fun with the game, and both of those are rather minor issues at this point. Definitely going to recommend this to anyone who liked Majesty 1 (they even kept a lot of the voices!).

That's a descriptive name. Reminds me a little of You Have To Burn The Rope.

As a fan of Warcraft, Starcraft, C&C, etc, is this a good RTS? Anyone know how long the single player campaign is?

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.
