Lords of the Realm II, Sierra On-Line, $54.95.

Lords of the Realm II is a sequel to the popular Lords of the Realm. The game propels players into epic conflicts and the intrepid life of 13th-century England using historically accurate artificial intelligence to re-create the difficulties of managing a kingdom and assembling a feudal army. For another challenge, players can battle friends and co-workers by modem or network. Lords of the Realm II requires multiple skills from the strategy gamer. The kingdom and resource management are turn-based, but the battles are real-time, using tactics and weapons of the period. The interface is designed to speed entry to the game regardless of skill level.
