Game Review on May 18th, 2012
Ok, first of all this game is free (my favorite price!). Second of all, it was released in 1997; this is a fact that some of the lower-voting rankers failed to take into consideration. For what it is, Seven Kingdoms is fantastic. I only really have two legitimate gripes: SK:AA will just randomly quit after extended play; and some of the earlier "easy" scenarios are impossibly hard. As far as the random quitting is concerned, however, it is rectified by very frequent autosaves.
It's not AoE (although this is a personal opinion), but it is still a steal--there's no reason NOT to download it. I've spent 10+ hours playing off and on, and I know I'll come back to it when I want to kill some time with light gaming. Love it!
