In the 1066 game you get to control the English, Viking or Norman armies. The aim of the game is to defeat your enemy's army by killing or scaring off as many of them as possible! The game puts you into the thick of the action, giving you direct control over every arrow barrage, cavalry charge and defensive stand. Taunts, chants and the presence of a strong leader will all prove crucial to winning the day.

A multiplayer option also offers the chance to test your mettle against friends.

Holy cow! I didn't know Ian Holm (Bilbo Baggins of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy) voiced the narration for this! I wonder how the creator was able to arrange that.

Anyway, this was a fun strategy game; graphics were great, SFX fitted the gameplay very well, the strategy was in-depth enough to make you think, and music set the mood well.

This game allows me to express my love for history, and battle strategy! 10/10

Very cool, nice historical game here, was a classic back in the day, of course.

Needs crusading

Would be very cool another game with this same style, in another historical moment...
