Warlords

Warlords01.png
SSG 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (DOS)

Warlords is a very basic game. Some parts of Empire mixed with a little bit of Risk and finished with a fantasy touch. Up to eight different fractions are struggling over supremacy in Illuria. Illuria is a relatively small country with 80 cities which is completely flat and apparantely has some kind of impenetrable borders - this is where the map just ends.


Warlords II Deluxe

SSG 1995
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Warlords 2… not a huge jump from from the original. NetDanzr already identified the main differences in his review. While I don't agree with him concerning the ships (the manual handling of expensive ships as found in the original was way too fussy, in my opinion), I think he hit the nail on the head concerning the ability to 'buy' production. This feature did not make the game better, because it lowers the strategic importance of individual cities. However, you will use it, because the whole strategic model is of course built around it. Instead of going into further detail on those, this review will focus on what's new in Warlords 2 Deluxe.


Warlords III: Darklords Rising

SSG / Red Orb 1998
Genre: Strategy
Rating: -

System: PC
Darklords Rising is a graphically re-skinned version of Reign of Heroes which adds one new campaign (spanning ten levels) and some new units. It contains all contents of the previous game, so it is the Warlords III version to take.

After the Warlords II Deluxe, what could possibly follow? Thematically, the game had been stretched to extremes there. In this respect, it's back to the roots in part 3: we're back in clichéd sword & sorcery worlds inhabited by elves, orcs etc. And gameplay feels strangely familiar. One could think it's just a graphical update.
