Subject: Kohan :Ahriman's Gift Review

Already bored youself out with today's RTS games? Then head on over to The Mushroom and read up on their review of Kohan: Ahriman's Gift. Looks to be a pretty impressive game, and hay, it can't be all that bad if they gave it a perfect score of 10 Mushrooms! Why do they love it? In a word:

Ever wondered how do you could take the best real-time strategy game on the market and make it better? Ask Timegate Studios and Strategy First. Does that sound like enough of a promotional quote line? How about "Kohan does for RTS gaming what Half-Life did for FPS gaming"? To make sure you appreciate that last statement: A) I absolutely LOVE Half-Life. B) Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns came first, so it's really the one that revolutionized RTS games. C) It really is that good. I'm not just trying to fellate the developers here. After all, Strategy First also brought us Cossacks, and Cossacks hates me. It's just incredible to play a real-time strategy game that has this much variety, depth and challenging gameplay, yet still feels like playing instead of working.
They only include 3 screen captures from the game (I would hope for more), but none the less, they help give you a pretty good idea of the gameplay.
