Warlords II Deluxe game description
Warlords II Deluxe is a sequel to the best selling Warlords II and boasts a wide range of additions and improvements. As well as the game itself, Warlords II Deluxe contains an improved version of the Warlords II Scenario Builder and a number of new scenarios.
The computer opponent is not too clever. He’ll send his hero out early to search ruins to gather relics and gold, but leaves himself open to ambush all too easily. However, while a single opponent is just about competent, fighting against up to 7 other sides makes the game rather trickier, especially if you beef their power up to “Warlord (enhanced)” and declare all out war on all of them before you start. The computer AI will attack poorly defended cities without mercy.
Diplomacy is included, and is a little erratic at times, but it’s a handy option. I imagine this comes into its own when you’re up against a human opponent or two (with possibly some computer players thrown into the pot). A side if doing badly will offer surrender – if you refuse you must eradicate them completely. I’ve had some success with diplomacy, but as in the end you’re out to kill and maim everyone, any agreements are likely to be temporary.
A fun element is the building up of heroes. Normal units can get bonuses with time, like +1 STR medals, or +1 STR blessings, but heroes get experience and levels to raise what stats they have. They can collect relics (which only heroes can carry) which give combat and movement bonuses, or other nice effects like +4 gold per city per turn.
