Knights of Honor
« on: October 31, 2014, 04:24:41 PM »
I had 20 bucks, and a need for a new game, and a Steam account.

Nice combination!

I went looking under strategy games, and found Knights of Honor.

Not super complex, but for a Paradox game, very accessible, and with a nice bit of randomization thrown in, at game start.

Huh?  Paradox?  When and how did that happen?  I thought it was published by Sunflowers Interactive who were later acquired by Ubisoft?

You paid $20 for it? That was a reasonable price 5 years ago. Now, not so much.

You might want the "No Intro Fix" for Knights of Honor. It can be found here, along with the Holy Rome mod. I wish I had downloaded (or at least bookmarked) all the popular mods for Knights of Honor using the links on the Black Seas forums before they went down.

Although $20 may be a bit too much to pay for it these days, my guess is that you will get your money's worth from it.
Regardless of how good a PC game may be it will always have its detractors and no matter how bad a PC game may be it will always have its fans.

I didn't pay 20 dollars..I said I had twenty to spend. I paid $10, and I think that's just about right.

Pretty good game. I started as the north of Scotland, and I have taken the British Isles, and the Normandy coast.

If anything, I have too much money. Instead of getting money from merchants, I should be trading for the goods I need to get the kingdom modifiers.

This will likely keep my interest for a couple of weeks. I can easily see myself completing several campaigns with this.

Holy cow...didn't think this aar would still be read and remembered  8)

The game is not from paradox but was done by black sea studios ( some started first at Haemimont games with Tsar). It was first published by Sunflowers Entertainment.

Great game...enjoy  ;)

Awesome game, still worth $20 IMO.

Since there was some interest in this title recently, though some might be interested that its on sale at Bundle Stars for $2 for the next ~3 days...(and its a Steam key)

Oh snap...maybe I should give it another try. Can't go wrong for that price.

I just spotted Knights of Honor on sale at Steam for $2.49 U.S. I tried to compare prices at GamersGate and GOG but neither site had it.

The sale ends in about a day and a half so if you want it, don't put buying it off too long.
