Lords of Midnight III: The Citadel

Maelstrom Games / Domark 1995
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
10 years… an eternity in the computer games world. Even if the two Lords of Midnight games had been very popular at their time, who still remembered them by the mid-90s? Which is probably also what Domark thought, just printing "Lords of Midnight" on the box, omitting the "III" shown in-game. Since 1995, another 23 years have passed. So more than double of those previous ten. So in today's retrospect, 1984 and 1995 have moved much closer together, haven't they?

Midwinter

Maelstrom / Rainbird 1990
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

There are only very few games out there which actually deserve the over-used label 'epic'. Usually, games called 'epic' just go for broadness, i.e. they offer lots of stuff of the same kind. For example, such a game would have lots of levels, but all those levels require the same few activities and strategies.


Midwinter II: Flames of Freedom

Maelstrom / Rainbird 1991
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

About 30 years after Midwinter Island has been liberated from General Masters' troops, things don't look to bright once again. In fact, the island itself has been swallowed by the sea as a climate change has caused the ice to melt. Its former inhabitants have been relocated to another island (called Agora) and a new state has been formed. In the meantime, however, the evil Saharan Empire has conquered all of the archipelago apart from Agora. It has become clear these freedom-loving people will be their next target.


Ring Cycle

Maelstrom / Psygnosis 1996
Genre: RPG, Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
Anyone who has ever complained about Lords of Midnight 3 should play Ring Cycle. Granted, that may not be such a large group since not all that many have played the former game. Or even heard of it. Nevertheless, these selected few should give this game an honest try. Even if it is only to make themselves feel better about LoM. Much better! Using the game engine already deployed in LoM, Ring Cycle strips away the strategic aspects and goes for a pretty pure roleplaying approach. Maybe with a little 3D shooter mixed in.
