To start of I like this novel but let´s look at some details about it.
Game is called a Russian Saga and after the first chapter comes first problem with the game. You actually can´t play as the East Slavic culture. Instead you get to choose from Nivkh (region around Vladivostok), Chukchi (at Kamchatka), Nogai from central asia), Khanty (Siberia beyond Ural) and Saami (northern Scandinavia). Problem is none of those cultures are even remotelly Slavic which lead me to another point. Word Russian. Russian nation exists only since 16th century when Ivan IV. Grozny united landsof Rus. However at that time seat of power was in Muscovy. Here in the game seat of power is in Kiev which means the game takes place before Mongolian invasion hence the nation should be called Kievan Rus and its people weren´t Russian yet but we are still talking about East Slavic ethnicity. Difference between east slavic nations started to form only after the Mongolian invasion and when Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth captured western parts of region. Back to Kievan Rus. Here the ruler of the nation is reffered as Tsar however again that is only after Mongoloian invasion when Grand Principality of Muscovy united lands of Rus. Kievan Rus was Grand Principality and its ruler was reffered as Grand Knyaz. Anyway that´s all from me. Aside from those issues I still like the game.
