King Arthur: Fallen Champions
2 September 2013
Summary: King Arthur: The Roleplaying Wargame was a really fun and interesting hybrid real-time strategy/turn-based strategy/role-playing game. It pulled a lot of good elements from these genres and it felt unique and it really stood out, but it did have some flaws: The AI was awful, combat was boring, and...
Excerpt: King Arthur: Fallen Champions is a riff on Arthurian legend, a real-time strategy game which has a few innovative features, but is bogged down by some poor design decisions and a difficult curve that would best be described as “decidedly odd”.
Summary: (KA1) is on its last legs. The sequel, named “ ” (KA2) has been announced and there are screenshots and a blog and lots of good buzz. So why would Paradox release this game, and why would anyone buy it? First off, there is no official KA2 release date yet.
Conclusion: If you’re so into King Arthur that you’ve sanded the corners off your dinner table and you feel an overwhelming sense of Divine Right whenever you pull a kitchen knife from your knife block, you may be able to extract some enjoyment from the latter parts of Fallen Champions , in between your regular...
Summary: King Arthur - The Role-playing Wargame had surprise on its side when it was released in 2009. Developer NeoCore Games' blend of choose-your-own-adventure quests and real-time fantasy battles came out of nowhere with impressive cross-genre experimentations, even if the end result was uneven and a bit...
Pros: Innovative blend of choose-your-own-adventure quests and RTS battles, Smartly designed battle scenarios, Intelligently aggressive AI, Impressive, atmospheric visuals

Excerpt: So how do you differentiate yourself from Total War? Add crazy ass fantasy units
and spells, which is exactly what King
Arthur did two years ago. The formula seemed to work quite well, and it was
repeated in the ultimately-disappointing semi-sequel Lionheart.
Conclusion: But all of these problems reek of budgetary issues rather than lack of vision. In spite of its technical failings, this is a good addition to the King Arthur series: it weaves an entertaining tale for you to put your mark on, offers some solid tactical challenges and is in all perfect for a few...
Pros: Mini adventures encourage player investment in the plot and characters. A variety of interesting combat scenarios to fight.
Cons: Over all too quickly, not as sophisticated as some of its counterparts.
Conclusion: Akármennyire is töröm a fejem, a néhány óra alatt kijátszható Fallen Champions kampányában nem nagyon találkoztam olyan momentummal, amit negatívumként fel tudnék hozni. Egyeseknek talán szokatlan lesz, hogy rengeteg lehetőséget kihagytak az illetékesek, így tulajdonképpen egy totálisan egyszerű, a...
Pros: kiváló történetmerész újdonságok
Cons: egyszerűsödött játékmeneta töltési időkbe bele lehet őszülni
