Mac gamers looking for a little more information on KnightShift may be interested in a preview done by the folks at GameSpy. The first thing the preview notes is the title change to Once Upon a Knight due to legal conflicts. The second thing noted is the game's irreverent sense of humor. For example, the main resource of the RTS portion of this RTS/RPG hybrid is fresh, wholesome milk. Which naturally means that the local cows must be kept happy and well-fed in order to keep things flowing.

Knight also appears to contain some interesting units:

In addition to the usual sword-wielding knights, barbarians, wizards, and other combat classes, players will also have to figure out how to utilize some rather unusual units. These include the cowherd who can speed up your milk production, a flying witch (complete with pointy black hat) who fires lightning at enemy buildings, and my favorite, the mother-in-law, who can capture enemy buildings by forcing other player's units out with her rolling pin or speed up production on her end using the same tool.
Also described are the various available character classes as well as impressions on the graphics and sound. Those interested in the full read can find it at GameSpy.
