Sequels That Should Have Been: Knights of Honor 2

"Knights of Honor (2004) – what a horribly cheesy title – can best be summed up as “Crusader Kings for denser people”. That’s not a bad thing, because it made it far more accessible than practically all of Paradox’s games. I could sit on the throne in my Hungarian empire, and feel like the God-Emperor I was, without having spent hours figuring out how to make my armies invincible. That’s not to say that Knight’s of Honor lacked challenge, it was simply intended to be played in a more – gasp! – casual manner." (Crusader Kings, Crytek Black Sea, Culture, Knights of Honor, Paradox Interactive, PC)

"what a horribly cheesy title" what a load of bullshit, the game was Legit, it had its problems but it was pretty damn good, my and my buddies played it a while ago and we all enjoyed it more than all the civilizations or other mainstream games.

I wish they would make sequel and improve on the previous idea of the game, then it would be golden.

Uh, what? "Knights of Honor" is a rather cheesy title for a game. The game itself was supremely entertaining, like I state in the article, but not without its problems. If they were to be fixed in a hypothetical sequel, greatness would be achieved.

It wasn't cheezy title. I give you example of "cheezy title", Stronghold 3, now THAT'S a cheezy title, because nothing works in that game.

Everything worked pretty well in KoH, and just few minor problems wouldn't make that game "cheezy", especially when you could simply avoid abusing AI and make the game more interesting for yourself.

The game would be horribly cheesy title if you would know that its broken the minute you start playing it, which is not the case, you can play through entire game and enjoy it quite a bit.

I loved Lord of the Realms 2, this game looks like that.

It looks good

@Vladplaya (for some reason can't reply to your comment, so writing it down here.

Definition of "cheesy" from Wiktionary: "of poor quality through being overdramatic, excessively emotional or clichéd, trite, contrived, shoddy"
Synonyms: corny, tacky <--- (in the light of things I should have used one of the synonyms instead, as their meaning are probably clearer)

The way "cheesy" is used in the article does not refer in any way to the quality of the game, which you appear to think with your Stronghold 3 example (which is not a "cheesy" game, but merely a poor game through what you describe.)

"Cheesy" refers to the overly clichéd and overly dramatic - to use the example from Wiktionary - TITLE of the game. "Knights of Honor" sounds almost childish. And that's by no means a bad thing. It's just cheesy. Cheesy things can be fun too. In fact, when things are intentionally cheesy they can be quite entertaining. In the case of "Knights of Honor ", though, it appears to be unintentional, and thus hilarious in its own way.
