Unlike most of the strategy games, Majesty 2 comes with some extremely interesting management system and quests system. Here, the player can place a certain flag on a quest zone in order to attract heroes to complete that particular quest. I will explain this system because is something new and quite interesting. First, the player can choose out from a variety of different flags: defense, attack, exploration and warning. Let's say that you have a bear den that must be cleared. You can place a flag there and a reward and heroes from all over the kingdom can come and complete that quest for you.
Of course, Majesty 2 is not limited at hiring heroes to do your jobs. You can build a large variety of structures, you can control your economy and you can research spells. Building is fun and ma
kes your city to look nice. However, the main task here is to get heroes to carry out tasks for you. At the beginning, this is going to be a simple job. However, as the game advances, the tasks are going to be harder and harder and heroes will think twice before accepting a quest. Also, most of these heroes must take a long road to reach your city and until then your population is going to be terrorized by all kind of vicious beast and creatures. One of the most welcome features from Majesty 2 is that you can take your heroes in the further missions so investing in training them is a good and useful thing.
Another good strategy here is to build some defensive structures early in the game. These structures will provide a minimum of security for your city against the invading beast. Also, during the game, you are going to discover some more subtle strategies. For example, you are going to find out that elves and dwarfs are working very well together. Having them in a hard mission raises the chances for success.
The graphics in Majesty 2 are good, nothing outstanding but nothing bad either. The voice acting is also really good, the sounds are good and the background music is excellent and fits the theme.
