So this game had the potential to be great, but everything they tried to do was simply implemented horribly. I tried to see the positives in this game to no avail. My rant/review shall now commence.
You'd imagine that the wall and citadel construction would have been done right since it's the bloody title of the game.. well guess again, it's horrendous and inexplicably complicated and bugy. (also for some reason, the further away you place your wall, the less fps you have, I don't understand how that could be an actual correlation in this day and age)
Another thing is the menus and extremely unfriendly interface. There are many icons which supposedly show different resources.. the only thing is they're basically all the same. Adding to the horrible interface is the crappy layout of buildings and options. There's just a bunch of fancy pop-out menus with NOTHING in them. You will literally see a huge menu with only one option and no tooltips or anything. Oh and remember all those lovely hotkeys that every relatively new rts has? That's right you guessed it, this game has none.
As I'm sure you've noticed, this is quite an angry review and has turned into a rant rather than an objective review. BUT, after having played a few skirmishes against the so called 'a.i.' I felt compelled to try and save you from the dreadful experience that lies ahead.
I somehow managed to get it for 6 euros and I still feel cheated. This game is so pre-alpha that no one should ever be able to buy it until they at least remove all the bugs and arrange the ai and interface.
Save yourself and your wallet, do not waste money on this.
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.
