QliTech-Loki Reminder; Kohan Plug

December 10th, 2001 by Crusader

Just a note: You have until December 12th to take advantage of QliTech’s specialoffer: If you purchase a multimedia system, you’ll receive a copy ofKohan: Immortal Sovereigns free.

Speaking of Kohan,Gamespot’s executive editor mentioned itin his Gamespotting columnas one of this year’s most surprisingly fun games:

Kohan’s nondescript red box and awkward title shroud what’s easily one of the year’s most well-designed real-time strategy games. Not since 1997 have there been quite so many real-time strategy games in a single year–but Kohan showed most of them up with its brilliant focus on combat between companies of units, rather than just individual units. The game takes micromanagement out of your hands, letting you focus squarely on strategy. It’s pretty surprising that it’s taken a developer this long to figure out a system like Kohan’s. But that just goes to show how impressive Kohan really is.

Serious Sam, being ported to Linux by Ryan “icculus” Gordon, is also mentioned.

    Kohan is a good game, and the first RTS since WC2 I was able to play more than one game of. The biggest thing I hated about those games was the micromanagement; keeping track of every last grunt to make sure they’re always busy and such was irritating, especially when production efficiency was more important than any strategy.

    The only complaint I have about Kohan is a tiny feature missing from the regiment system — when you have multiple companies in a fixed formation, they don’t match speeds. So a fast archer company behind a slower infantry company will get out of formation while moving. It’s a small thing, but it makes using regiments more difficult, since to keep formation you have to move them in tiny increments.

    It’s still a Good Game. :)
