The legend of King Arthur meets real time strategy and turn-based strategising game, is the basis for this game. all aspects of the Legend you would expect to find in the game you can, for example the lady of the lake, sword in the stone & the knights of the round table are all present and accounted for. The story line also fits extremely well with all the classic tales of King Arthur both before and after his crowning. I think that if they had gone any further into the storyline they would have lost the real time strategy aspect of the game, which would of been a shame. Of course all the normal characters of the round table and the legend make an appearance in the game too.
The game is fun and exciting while you watch as the story unfolds before your eyes, while this is true the real time strategy section of the game is not so straight forward as expected, the balance in the battles between you and your enemies is not easy to gauge and even harder to win less you have an outright advantage, and even with some strategy behind your plans of war, you still could lose a supposed equal fight, even on the easiest setting of gameplay. The turn based part of the game works well and is a nice mix of the strategy and role-playing atmosphere. Which also includes in game quests which ensures you know what to do if your lost in the story, which is very handy.
The games graphics are pretty good and the scenes of medieval Britannia are beautiful and all the places you expect to see in the story of king Arthur have also made it into the game, such as Glastonbury Cathedral, London, Stonehenge, and many more. also the art work in the interactive cut scenes are good, even if a little darker than expected, they fit well with the aura of mystery and the fact that Arthur is unsure whether he can trust the lady of the lake and others in the game. the audio which come with the game play is fitting to the era of which the game is set and fits nicely.
Overall the game is worth playing even with the issues with game play the rest of the game makes up for wt it lacks. the turn based part the game can get you hooked for hours like any other game like it, but you can get sick of the battles quite easily.
