Game Industry News by John Breeden II

"Majesty is a refreshing twist on the somewhat overdone RTS genre. Cyberlore has actually found a way to add something new to RTS games and for this alone they deserve kudos. The fact that the game is a lot of fun to play, and boarders on being addictive, is just bonus points."

"Here is where play diverges from more traditional RTS games and where Majesty shines. You don't have direct control over your heroes. You can ask them to go and kill a marauding monster out in the countryside by putting a price on its head, but you have no way of knowing if your heroes will actually take your offer to heart. Also, you don't really know how the character will go about accomplishing the task at hand. And if things start to go badly, smart characters will turn tail and live to fight another day."

"Majesty earns 4 GiN Gems for its treasure trove, with one Gem off for reliance exclusively on smaller maps and slowdowns late in the game. But this is one of the most advanced RTS games we have ever seen, and the intensive AI comes with some tradeoffs. Still, any RTS fan will find themselves quickly hooked on this new way to play war games, where the player is both powerful and powerless at the same time."
