Another Good Game
Today its Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat a 1996 real-time tactics game developed and published by Mindscape for the Sony PlayStation. It is based upon the Warhammer Fantasy Battle table-top game and figurines.
The game’s story takes place within the Warhammer Fantasy world setting, and focuses on players managing a group of mercenaries, who take on work for various clients but become involved in stopping a plot by the Skaven. The game’s main focus is on battles that feature a mixture of medieval warfare and fantasy elements, using a variety of units based upon those from within the Warhammer setting.
Following its release, the game received mixed feedback with some criticism made over elements of its gameplay. A sequel to the game was later released in 1998, entitled Warhammer: Dark Omen, with the game being later made available at GOG.com in 2015.
