With Warhammer Fans waiting patiently to surrender a monthly stipend and a substantial fraction of their lives to Age of Reckoning, it's a timely re-release of the thoroughly acceptable fantasy RTS from Black Hole Entertainment The game suffered from some presentation issues - the dated world map will make you wonder what you're getting into - but the core of the game is solid, meaty strategy. You keep your troops from one battle to the next, so you're forced to consider casualties, and not just push for a map victory against all reason. You'll have to use height advantage, line of sight, flanking manoeuvres and combined arms to finish levels with enough troops to get to the next town.
This isn't a game without problems, but Mark of Chaos will give a wedge of pleasure to any fans of RTS games or Warhammer. If you're both, then our recommendation is to fill your boots as quickly as possible.
