Real Time Strategy with a fun twist - Burned out by games like War Craft III and StarCraft, I was bit reluctant to try this. Glad I tried it. Though it plays somewhat like the games I mentioned, indirect control is a fun twist...and at times frustrating. Gone is the frentic micro management of individual peons. Instead, you sit upon your throne directing your armies toward targets by economic rewards. It plays polished. I've had no technical problems and the tutorial got me up and running quickly. Another really pleasant surprise in the campaign, the individual incidents are different in their focus which translates into focusing on different units and builds. instead of following the same sequence as fast as you can each time. I like the pause ability too. It allows you to think and breathe a little easier. The royal advisor who lays out the scenarios is at times pretty funny and the atmosphere feels almost like a role playing game and not a real time strategy.
Still waiting for a fix - I bought the game for a brand new iMac that exceeds all the technical specs. The game loads (sort of) and runs through the intro screens, but hangs up when you actually try to play it. (I get a lot of nice pictures.) I raised the issue two weeks ago with Virtual Programming. They keep telling me to send them a file that does not exist on the computer, which I keep telling them. I'd prefer to get the game working over a refund and have asked Virtual Programming about re-installing it. No response. (If only I had a physical disc....) Anyone have similar problems or a suggestion? WIll the app store let me uninstall it and download it again without charging me a second time?

Expansions? - I know three expansions exist for this game, and that they have been written to work on OS Lion (or whatever big cat it is now), and there are patches for downloads, though they apparently corrupt when the original application was purchased through the App Store. So, timeline?
Classic - A great idea but could you also give us the original?
If you know anything about strategy games you can beat it - This game is fun but takes time to get the hang of.It does get more challenging after the first level but if you just think about what you have to do it shouldnt be a problem. I love games like this where i have to think about what i need to do in order to beat the quest.If you dont like a challenge this game isnt for you.I havent beaten it yet but havent gotten stuck on any levels,yes some take a little thinking but if you use your brain you shouldnt have any real problems. ive only got 4 missions left and look forward to the next version.Dont let the other reviews scare you this game is great.(the dragon level isnt to bad)
Good, but could use some improvements - I got this for my new MacBook Pro after finally ditching my ancient PC, which I'd played the original Majesty on for years. PROS: -Excellent graphics -The game itself is very fun, and I think challenging without being impossible CONS: -I want a freeplay version like on the original game! I'm almost out of missions, and I wish there was an option to just build a kingdom like in the old game. -I miss the cheats…I see why they don't work with the missions, but again, they made the freeplay version a lot more fun. -I really don't like that I can't pan the camera with my trackpad - I feel like there has to be a way to be able to do this on a Mac, and I hope it's in the next update. Summary: While I do recommend the game, there are some cons that I really hope are addressed in the future!
Needs to be more balanced - This game has a lot of potential, but the difficulty level is stupid bad. The game goes from easy to impossible in no time. I feel like I was shown flashcards of what numbers are and then told to go do calculus. By the fourth or fifth level your village is immediately attacked by an enormous dragon that can knock down entire buildings in a single swoop. I see no way to beat this, and what's more even if I slaved away at trying to find a way it would be just that - slaving away - not playing a game.
