Exploring The Settlers 7: Paths To A Kingdom

Games On Net has posted a new review of The Settler 7: Paths to a Kingdom. The game puts players in the role of a ruler trying to create, build, and manage a kingdom. Games On Net gave the game a score of 3.5 out of 5.

From the review:

Combat is incredibly simple, with units of different shapes and sizes banding to a particular general to form a single group thatís sent off into battle. There are technological upgrades on offer, but with only four main military unit types, youíre barking up the wrong tree if youíre looking for an in-depth combat experience.

But the Settlers series has never really been that style of RTS. Instead, Settlers 7 is a return to the quaint charm of older Settlers games, complete with cartoony graphics that add to the overall feel. In true Supreme Commander style you can zoom right out for a god's-eye overview of the map, or zoom right in to see the warts on a specific peasant's nose. There's so much character and charm built into the finest details that it's easy to get lost in the enjoyment of the little things.

The interface is particularly intuitive - simple symbols are used throughout to let you know which buildings require particular attention and exactly what they need at a glance. Space is often limited, but when your city and economy start to grow as a result of your clever planning and management, it's hard not to feel proud of your creation. You can even reflect your personality in your main castle design, which serves as an avatar for multiplayer matches. In the skirmish and multiplayer world you can win by following one of three paths to victory: military, technological or trade. Each path is balanced in its own right and players can choose to play it straight, mix it up or even switch paths as they see fit.
