Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Virtual Programming's Majesty 2. The game puts players in the role of a ruler seeking to restore his kingdom to its former glory. To succeed they will need to recruit heroes and convince them to set forth and battle the many monstrous threats menacing the people of Ardania.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

The core experience of Majesty 2, constructing buildings and placing flags, is still just as entertaining now as it was with Majesty. There's just something rewarding about giving your heroes a semi-safe leveling environment and watching them lay waste to the hordes of monsters on the countryside. In some cases, like the wizards, a single hero can take on dozens of monsters alone and destroy them all in seconds. It never ceases to be satisfying.

broken boss monsters



They're not broken, they simply require more thought than just putting a reward flag on them.  One key element is the taverns, which were not mentioned in the review, and are something quite important that weren't in Majesty 1.  It makes things a lot easier if you create parties using them for the more difficult missions.  Individual heroes tend to run away from threats that are too powerful, whereas parties won't.

There's a definite WoW influence in the game, from the casting animations, to the classes and armour design.

That said, it's tremendous fun, and it looks great.
You must gather your party before venturing forth.
