I honestly think this is one of the best stratgic games they have out there today. You select your troops, control them, and hire mercenaries. You get to destroy towns with catapults and spear a few enemy commanders in the face. Good tutorial that explains the gameplay well and good graphics too.
A couple downsides to the game. GLITCHY.... depending on what type of computer you have. It being GLITCHY makes it hard to lead troops during intenese battles. Also tutorial takes like 500 freaking years.
