Does anyone actually read the titles?

first time i played this, i spent hours on it until i finished. In my opinion, the storyline pretty much makes it twice as good as it already is. (It's both unique and cliché ... how does that work?)

This game was loads of fun. It had a great story, very colorful characters, decent graphics for a game of its style, and an odd but unique style of playing. I loved it!

"Play as Prince Vern and take command of your army of brave warriors. Fight side by side with Captain Rield and Sergeant Pitt to drive the Orcs out of your lands."
i dont Rield and Pitt on the battle only on the story.
it will be better if they actually fight along side by side.

Sequel to Battle for Gondor, huh?

Prince of War. Sounds just a little like Prince of Persia, which is why I like the idea so much. However, I felt his character design could have been just the slightest bit cooler. I'm especially grateful, though, that the hero can partake in the main battle. A vast improvement from the first version, though it kind of takes the tactics down a little, because now the units aren't quite as important when you have an extra soldier running around, faster and stronger than half your infantry. His reach is also slightly longer than the orcs, so it's unfair for him to slay them without taking damage. I found it interesting how I could take on the orc army, and the golem, by myself. As a general rule, your hero alone is stronger than all of your lesser units combined.

The dialogue inbetween levels was also a neat addition. The word is Elven, though, not Elfin. I've never seen it spelt that way, so forgive me if I'm wrong by correcting you. The only real flaw in the game was that you sometimes skipped the first bit of the dialogue because you were still holding down space from the last battle, and there's no way to go back and read it. That kinda dragged down the storyline a bit.

I liked how the story didn't just stop after you pushed the orcs from your land. Forcing them to a ceasefire isn't good enough- you want to erradicate the threat. That's a cool notion. A brave one. Also, now that you can attack the army, standing behind them doesn't do any damage to you while you still reap through them.

I do disagree with Pitt's story, though. Traitors were tortured and killed in various fashions, depending on the civilisation. And anyone cowardly enough to turn on their own men is not likely to give their own lives to protect someone else's. I'm also somewhat perturbed that the orcs would help the army that had been slaying them for countless days and nights.

Simple graphics, with effective colouring and characteristics to still make clear distinctions between the different units, both of orcs and your own army. Music that you could listen to for, basically, ever... As far as I can tell, the only reason you changed the names of all the old units was because this was (supposedly) an entirely new story, with identical characters and similar stages :P Still, there were a few major tweaks to the gameplay, which I very much appreciated. Not a lot else to say, so well done on this!

Note: Dwarves are probably the best soldiers you can get, when compared to the price. Reasonably fast infantry with plenty of health and a decent sized axe to hack with.
