Mindcraft's first tactical fantasy game Siege and the expansion pack Dogs of War is decent tactical combat game featuring tons of scenarios, units, and even a decent plot. In this cross between SSG's Warlords and EA's classic Rampart, your task is to either attack or defend a castle with fantasy units. Good VGA graphics and music unfortunately can't hide the fact that the AI of the game is simply horrible-- arguably even worst than Mindcraft's dreadful Tegel's Mercenaries. It is far too easy to outflank the computer and confuse its units by feigning attacks, and the only time you will feel anything resembling a real challenge is when the computer commands many more units than you do, to even out the odds. Gameplay mechanics is decent, although the cumbersome interface (like in most Mindcraft strategy games) really gets in the way. Although the game is real-time, you can pause it at any time to give commands.
