Reviews:

Computer Gaming World, September 1999

"Part cerebral, part brawl, TA: Kingdoms carries on the fine real-time-strategy tradition Cavedog started two years ago.

"TA: Kingdoms is essentially the fantasy version of Total Annihilation. While the original game focused on a vague and uninteresting war between two robot factions, TA: Kingdoms goes for a high-fantasy angle with a touch of King Lear. A powerful king divides his realm among his four children, then he promptly disappears. A few hundred years later, the four children have split into two camps: one that emphasized technology, the other relying on magic. One faction initiates an invasion, and the battle begins."

"Most notably, the game's campaign is large and continuous, shucking the conventional, episodic approach of games like StarCraft in favor of a more unique method. Instead of playing as one race throughout one campaign and then proceeding to another race and another campaign, in TA: Kingdoms you constantly jump among all four factions during the game's 48 missions. This allows for some interesting angles on gameplay. In one scenario, you establish a beachhead. The very next scenario puts you in the opposition's shoes - your objective is to eliminate the freshly established beachhead...."
