    Hurray. More java games… that no one will ever play because java is a terrible language for games.

    I might even say that java is a terrible language for client-side apps.

    Why anyone would port a game to java is beyond me, its just ruining a game forever essentially. Ugly java widgets. Ugly java performance.

    Too bad, because Warlords II was a good game. Its a waste to even post about java games. I seriously doubt anyone plays them.
