5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap.
A better sequel to the original than some of the other sequels.
Turn based action, if that's your thing you likely won't dislike it.

Cons: None that I found.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to scour the net for valid patches for older games. They can make a huge difference. Compatibility mode for newer operating systems (Windows) can help a lot too. Bios updates for motherboards, firmware updates for DVD-roms, etc. You just don't want to screw up your system by updating it incorrectly (for example, a bios that is not for your motherboard). There are tweak guides for Windows as well that can help speed up gaming on slightly older hardware. Use the ones that make the most sense and are recommended around the net on reputable sites.

5 out of 5 eggsNice!

Pros: + Low system requirements
+ Nice Graphics
+ Low Cost
+ Fun Gameplay and Story
+ Not Complicated

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I really like this game. After playing alot of action or shooter games the turn based gameplay does take a little getting used to. But its not my first rodeo. The graphics are nice. Nothing that serious gamers will go nuts over, but nice. Thanks to the low system requirements I can play this game seamlessly on my older computer, which is a few years old and has a low end video card. There is a lot to this game but its not all that complicated once you get started. Like the first review stated, mine also came with the Hammers of Fate Expansion pack so that was a sweet bonus. Hey for $9.99 shipped you cannot go wrong with this deal. Should keep me busy for a while. Just the game I was looking for.

5 out of 5 eggsCool Game

Pros: It plays on Win 7 :)

Its clearly labled "Xp Servicepack 3 Only!" , DONT BE CONFUSED..... all that means is you need sp3 on xp. Works just fine on Win7. I run it under win 7 Ultimate 64 with an AMD athalon 5600+ Duo 64 (bought it here also)

Cons: Turned based play can be a bit hard to get used to at first. But then its fine.

Other Thoughts: It comes with the add on game that is also for sale on here. Hammers of fate. You dont need to get it seperately.
