Review: Majesty 2

On Wednesday, my review of Majesty 2 was published over at PopMatters. Among other September releases like The Beatles and Wet, it isn't exactly a big ticket item, but it is a pretty solid RTS or simulation.

My interest in looking at it was largely to focus on its fairly unique take on a restricted economy (something that other RTS's sometimes fumble with as they tend to begin with the player struggling with economy but eventually lead to a kind of uncontrollable boom). I liked what I think is a more conservative approach to economy that keeps the struggle more tense and realistic.

Additionally, the game makes some interesting suggestions about the relationships between authority and money. You can read more at the link below:
