Real-time strategy games are monstrous, complicated affairs that strain the resources of big design studios. So it's impressive a shareware game such as Strategy 3 - The Dark Legions exists at all, especially since the designer claims to have written it only to see if he could. Unfortunately, it can't compete with high-profile titles from Blizzard and Microsoft. The game is set in a medieval world, where the player trains troops, builds castles, takes resources, and makes war. The designer copied much of the control scheme from classic RTS titles, so fans of the genre should feel at home. But the graphics are disappointing. Also, the overhead perspective is not well executed, and we had difficulty seeing anything on the map. You have to applaud the developer for trying, but when Age of Empires II sells for $25, it's hard to justify sinking time into Strategy 3 - The Dark Legions.
