Dominion

Codemasters Generic UK Eshop Pop up
Dominion is a fantasy strategy game set in an alternative medieval world where you can play as Humans, Merfolk, Dwarves, Halflings, Sylvans, Firewalkers, Wood Elves, Spirits or other races. Each race is fairly well balanced as evidenced by the lack of player complaints about one race being too strong.

In Dominion, construction is key to success with no fewer than 19 different kinds of buildings to choose from. Unlike the races, the construction aspect is not well balanced with the result that there are some buildings that are absolutely essential to success such as Masonries while others like Wizard Guilds are almost useless.

In Dominion, there are many different varieties of troops. Of these, Spies, Wizards and ArchMages are common to all races. Each race has its own unique varieties of specialist troops for invasion, defense and exploration. The varieties of race-specific troops are very well balanced.

Each player is the ruler of his own dominion in a larger realm. Currently, each realm consists of 10 dominions which is a significant reduction from previous rounds. This is not a good change since it greatly reduces the likelihood that an experienced, veteran player of the game will be in a realm to provide helpful leadership and/or advice on how to go about doing things.

There are some unique features in Dominion that differentiate it from other fantasy strategy games. There is a National Bank where you can exchange different kinds of currency (Gems, Platinum, Ore and Lumber). You can Re-Zone different kinds of land. There is a much greater variety of magic spells and espionage actions in Dominion than in virtually every other fantasy war game.

One of the best aspects of Dominion is its very healthy community and its hyperactive message boards. The very best aspect of this game? Its free!

Time of Defiance: 9.4 (November 10, 2004)

GunBound: 7.8 (November 10, 2004)
