Might be worth it, go with the collection

If you like the idea of Majesty, this is worth it. If not, then not. If you don't know how indirect orders work, watch a video or play the demo.

Should you decide to buy the game, buy the collection. It contains the three addons.
NOTE: You can buy the collection if you have Majesty 2 already, if you choose so. They are separate entries in the library. Although there probably would be no reason to do so, except the ingame DLC (see below). This has the side effect of the DLC not looking as if it is bought when it actually is included in the collection. This can be confusing.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/73020/ - this includes all DLC, even if it is not marked green individually.

Also, there is more DLC available ingame. Open the DLC tab there. If you buy the Majesty 2 collection, you get all of it for free.

I haven't been keeping track of this game, but from what I hear there's STILL no Sandbox mode? I love this game to death, but Sandbox mode was really the only mode I liked to play.

Also, I've heard varying opinions of the difficulty of missions and was wondering about that as well.

I just added this game to my Wishlist yesterday. I can't believe my luck.

After being disappointed that the GamersGate version wasn't Steam compatible I'm glad that they decided to pull this one out of the bag

May as well go with the full collection.

It seems you can buy Majesty 2 again even if you own collection. Pretty stupid imo.

I paid full price for all of the DLC and got my money's worth.
$4.99 for everything is a steal, you can't go wrong here.

No, for the own library. Which however makes sense the other way round, as pointed out above.

be aware though that the 2nd Majesty installation is not a simulator, its a strategy game, there is as much room to play sim city as there is in say homeworld.

With the Collection you will never run out of Missions, you have the main campaign and 3 full expansion campaigns, in one of those you play another race.
There is also a fanmade campaign.
And then there are like 30 single-map challanges. You will get tired of this game before you complete everything.


If you like strategy, this is worth it, but its NOT a builder game.

Damn I don't have enough money on my paypal to buy it, and nobody wants to trade it for my stupid bundle keys... I'm downloading the demo now, but I think I'll definitely like this game.

Trade tf2 stuff for it. Easy to get it with 2 keys and a refined metal for the collection

If you already have base game + Kingmaker which is worth it:

- Don't buy the other 2 DLC
- Buy the other 2 DLC
- Buy the complete package for the 'extra' DLC

Your BMOC is fairly valuable. You should be able to trade it for a $6-8 game, easy.

Catch is, you're not a premium..

Put $5 into steam, spend .49 to buy something in tf2, and keep the 4.51 to spend at a later date, and trade the BMOC for the game. Would be easy enough to find someone willing to do that

72/100 is a decent score, I'm still wondering wether I should get it or not

Is it popular online ? Isn'it boring too fast ? I'm already playing with a 260 games account.
