    I am Alive is a pleasant surprise, I quite like it. The art style surely grew on me.

    I guess everyone has their crazy stories from Crusader Kings, but this is actually my first proper game of it (played tons of EU). Started as Duke of Connacht, expanded my power over Ireland and swore fealty to England in order to inherit the Duchy of York. Slowly building up my holdings and plotting my way onto the throne of England, when the pope calls a crusade for Andalusia, the last major muslim state in Spain.

    I gather a few thousand troops and send them off, there's glory (and martial stat bonuses) to be won! The crusade is short, as large armies from England and France quickly storm the Muslim forts. My army loses the only major battle of the war, shortly before the Muslim surrender. And who does Pope Innocent II make ruler of the new nation?



    My holdings are the dark green in Europe, I was catapulted from a Duke to the independent King of a major nation (if I can hold it together).

    There's also various (optional) handicaps like locking the camera to the commander's view, sending orders via courier, and allowing the AI to control your subordinate units.

    It can be a little confusing at first but its actually a fairly accessible game, and the tutorials are decent.
    How does it compare, if you know, to 2nd Manassas? I bought that ages ago and never got round to playing it so I am curious if it's somewhat the same? If so, I should rectify that.

    It's the successor to 2nd Manassas. Very similar games.

    @somini: how does it play? Does it have open-word/consequences etc or it's just an action game?

    That mission definitely ended on a high note.
    Open-faced sandwiches are upon you whether you would risk it or not.

    For some reason I always thought that game was related to Black and White...

    For the life of me I cant think of 3 more games that feature blue boobs apart from the Mass Effect trilogy. And in comparison Giants blows ME out of the water in the blue boobs department (because bare boobs > covered boobs). Or where you thinking of something else?

    It's open-world-ish, but the story is completely linear, and if you go to the places you shouldn't go yet it's all locked. It has a central part quite big and empty, that you must traverse in most levels.
    It's not really an action game, it's more like PoP, you have the exploring part, the climbing part and the fighting part. You have just a machete and a pistol with nearly no bullets for most of the game, and then a bow with infinitely recyclable arrows later on. You learn early on how to easily dispatch groups of 4 guys easily, as long as you threaten them with the pistol. You can them push them into (conveniently placed) fires and ledges.
    I would say it's Alan Wake with climbing, and much less combat, or Sands Of Time with post-apocalyptic psychological terror, and much less combat.
    Here are some more screenies
