Holy cow what a fun game. Held off on diving into WH1 or 2 until now – despite being a TW fan – because I knew it would take over my life. I was right. Dove into the mortal empires campaign playing as the norse guys (because vikings and mammoths). I’ve got the north secured and money rolling in, and now everyone is starting to declare war on me. We will see if I can hold it together.
They did a very good job making it approachable. Despite not playing TW since medieval 2, I was able to pick up on things pretty quickly. I love how the quests give you continual short term rewards.
The “one more turn” is strong in this one, though the long wait for the AI turns gets a bit agonizing. I wish there was a smaller sandbox campaign.
Also, amazing performance on my ok-ish CPU and video card.
