Gamerfill: Monster Kingdom Review - Score: 7.5/10
”Having another kingdom to play as other then the humans really adds a lot more fun factor and replay value then you'd think- because after a while, human heroes start to become boring and you fancy a fresh set of heroes, and what can be better then undeads, goblins, rat-men and vampire tax collectors? Well, zombie-pirate-ninja-monkeys, but besides that, I think it's quite a good substitute!"

"Majesty 2: Kingmaker will appeal to two types of people; those who enjoyed the original so much that they cuddle the game box while they sleep, and masochists. If you breezed through the final missions of Majesty 2 and still feel unsatisfied, or you walk around with bulldog clips attached to your nipples, then this expansion is perfect for you."

“The result is a fantastic game that will keep players entertained for hours on end.”
Examiner - Score: 9/10
Highly recommended: ”...Majesty 2 is well worth price of admission. The extra layer of economic strategy and town management – which gives the game an almost puzzle-like element -- makes for a compelling time suck of a game.”

Holy Ramen Empire - Score: 8/10

PopMatters - Score: 7/10
"Through the game mechanics themselves, Majesty 2 suggests that maybe we should consider myths about heroes and monsters a little more pragmatically. Our heroes may be more motivated by booty than we might like to admit."

”The game play is solid and enjoyable – it kept me glued to my computer for a number of multi-hour sessions. The unique method for controlling your heroes through monetary rewards is fun and rather than get in teh way of game play, helps define it. That’s how you can tell a successful implementation by the way. ”
