Highland Warriors brings Scottish History to life

"Highland Warriors", a new game by Data Becker set for release on January 22 looks fascinating:

"Fight the battle at Stirling Bridge side-by-side with William Wallace, or share in the glorious victory at Bannockburn with Robert the Bruce. Of course, you can also fight on the English side and show the Scots at Falkirk just what the English Cavalry is able to do."

The close-in screen shots look terrific and reviewers say the AI is formidable (not like the original "Braveheart" game).

However, the system requirements are substantial - 800 Mhz PIII, 256 Mb Ram and 32 Mb of Video Ram - definitely for newer systems.
