Strength & Honour 2 is an empire building turn-based and real-time battle strategy war game that is set in the ancient world. The game allows the player to take the seat of an ancient ruler. They have eight civilizations to choose from with over 25 nations from Rome, Carthage, Egypt, Persia and the Gauls in the West to China, the Huns and Maurya in the East. Rather than kill monsters and find treasure, Strength & Honour 2 takes the player back in history to a time when empires were built not just through wars and a life of the sword, but the player must face the real obstacle of ruling a nation; maintaining peace and unity within the empire.

Building an empire is one thing, but sustaining one is a whole other matter. As the player builds up the empire’s foundation through sword and might and expands across the world, the internal problems of running an empire start surfacing and requires more attention from the player. Local governors may demand more of their fair share of the wealth and land in the empire, the expedition marshal may overshadow the ruler’s popularity and became more of a threat to the ruler than foreign enemies or generals may start to form political parties that begin to dictate the direction of the player's commands and so on.

Strength & Honour 2 shows the player the trials and tribulations on the road to creating a truly successful empire.

Battle Mode

Battle Mode allows the player to organize and control their army and engage an opposing army in battle. They can enter this mode when they engage with an enemy army or when the player attacks a city or an enemy army attacks one of the player's cities in World Mode. The player will be prompted to personally lead their troops into battle or allow the computer to decide a winner. If the player chooses to lead their army, then the will enter Battle Mode which gives the player the power to set attack formations and strategize an attack pattern that will allow the player to beat their opponent even if the player's troops are outnumbered.

Using a 3-D terrain system the battles are in real-time and the cities and terrain in battle are both vivid and realistic with backgrounds from all over the known world. Weather patterns, the time of attack and the morale of troops all have an impact on the outcome of the battle and make for battles that are always interesting and surprising.

Facilities

In Strength & Honour 2, the facilities that a player can build in their cities are very important to maintaining a successful empire. Depending on the personalities and desires of the player's subjects, different types of buildings will need to be built to maintain a high level of happiness. If the player fails to satisfy the desires of their generals then a city may revolt and attempt to break away from the player's nation. Key facilities include: Farms, Courthouses, Schools, Barracks and Marketplaces.
