Well... its currently a work in progress but it is a functional game... personally I bought it at a lower price at Impulse... looking for a "Stronghold" type of game to enjoy.
I've spent a few extra bucks (saved from my discounted purchase) instead upping my Wealth +120 which helped me construct a bit more faster.
It's actually easy to get into after a few sessions logged in in online mode, which seems to be the meat'n'potatoes of this game.
I certianly wish there was more documentation... (eg: Does building extra storehouses actually do anything?) So expect a little running around blindly for a while.
If you like Medieval-Fantasy Battles and sieges, and don't mind feeling a bit like a lab-rat, get this game.
