Got this over the weekend and my reaction so far is "eh". Not quite sure what I expected but it seems that even on "easy" settings, the game is... "simplistic". By this I mean you get a limited income and can buy units based on that income, and since you start out low you don't get a lot. Meanwhile the enemies seem to be attacking everywhere so I don't know if they have small armies or are just bold. Plus I'm terrible at the jousting and raiding part But hopefully I'll get better as time goes on. I'll keep playing and see how it is in a month or so.
