We have posted our second review of the new year, this time proving a critical appraisal of Cyberlore's RTS Majesty, ported and published by the recently-reborn MacPlay. Our reviewer found much to like in this unusual and visually stunning title, but we're eager to hear your reader reviews as well, so be sure to submit one!

Here's an excerpt:

Majesty's separation from the "do-this, do-that" mentality provides a unique flavor. Instead of ordering your troops into the fray, you give them the option to do so. You can provide monetary incentives for troops to explore uncharted wilderness, or to go and vanquish an enclave of the enemy. While you still control which buildings are built by your henchmen, you don't always control their occupants. Your subjects have a great deal of free will, which they exercise frequently (often to your chagrin as sovereign).

Another piece of the Majesty puzzle is the tech tree that comes with it. You can have Dwarves, Warriors of Discord, Paladins, Rangers, Rogues, Elves, Cultists, Priestesses, Monks and Healers. And that's just a small sampling of what's available. While the trees for technology themselves are short, they provide ample coverage for most of the single player levels. Only during network play do they feel far too short. Majesty's diversity is its lifeblood, there are so many different paths to take.

Make sure you read the rest of the review for more details, and download the demo for a personal look at this unique title. Majesty is now in stores, and we've seen it for as cheap as $32.00 online, so shop around!
