I am a big fan of the Be A King games and have played this one to death too, it's in my top 5, the game play is way addictive & fun. Note that I am not into medieval stuff - knights, middle ages, etc. have NO interest to me, I just love this game!! The graphics are not fantastic (but still charming) but it's really fun and totally addictive, there's so much going on - creating a village with various buildings, with side quests & heroes fighting roaming marauders... The swordplay and, well, killing takes it out of my kid-friendly range!! but it's definitely a must-try for (older) TM fans!
