This is a two campagin story about the Albanian national hero, George Castriot, also known as "Skanderbeg". The prologue is a fully cinematic story which introduces George Castriot in more detail, it shows how he was abducted by the Ottoman Empire, raised there, educated there, got his name changed there by the Ottomans to "Iskender Bey", also his religion to Muslim and finally he got promoted through the Ottoman ranks by providing spectacular combat skills -- leading him to earn the "sanjakbey" title. "Sanjakbey" means "Governor", he was appointed as the Sanjak of Dibra in 1440, which is a city now in modern F.Y.R.O. Macedonia. In the year 1443, he abandoned the Ottoman army during the Battle of Nis and decided to go back to his native land and take the reins of a new Albanian rebellion, he also reverted back to Christian as well. He, along with 300 other Albanians which were fighting in the Battle of Nis head towards Kruja and there he became the ruler of Kruja, Svetigrad and Modric (Kruja a city in modern Albania now, Svetigrad and Modric small towns in F.Y.R.O. Macedonia). In 1444 he was named as the Head of the League of Lezhe, which is where the second campaign comes in right after the prologue. The League of Lezhe was a military alliance of Albanian feudal lords which brought them all together, united, forged in Lezhe on 2nd of March, 1444 - which was initiated and organised under Venetian patronage with Skanderbeg being as the leader of the regional Albanian and Serbian chieftains united against the Ottoman Empire. Many battles were fought during the alliance which was formed in Lezhe, but in the second campaign, you will take control of the Albanian army which was formed as a result of the League of Lezhe and you will begin to cleanse the outskirts of city of Kruje from the Ottomans as Skanderbeg learns that they are planning an attack upon the fortified city of Kruje, he decides to hunt them down and destroy all of their camps which would prevent the Ottomans to cause any harm to the city of Kruje for the time being.

I played it, not bad but also a bit simple. Some interesting map design elements at time, but its erratic with poor areas. The game is far too easy with the player able to run roughshod over the Ottos, I didnt even need to control my men except place them near the camp openings and cut down all opposition.
