No story: The single player campaign has no story at all, so donít expect to get sucked into the Warlords world.
No character: While technically great, Battlecry II lacks personality. The races and units donít distinguish themselves besides the outward appearances and play mechanics.
Lack of detail:When playing at a reasonable resolution, the units and building lack detail Ė everythingís too small to make out any features.
Not enough animations:Each unit only has a few animations. Thereís not a whole lot of eye candy while youíre playing.
May be repetitive:The campaign mode is the same thing every time: invade a land and destroy all the inhabitants. The hero attributes and army abilities may spice things up enough to keep some gamers entertained.
