King Arthur II: The Role-Playing Wargame

Game Over Online
1 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I’m a big fan of the Total War series. I love persistent army and city management (none of that skirmish map, Star Craft mindlessness for me), and the slower, tactical combat is infinitely satisfying. And while I certainly appreciate the attempt at realism that Medieval and Empire try to establish, it always breaks the immersion when I eventually conquer the known world; seeing Scottish flags flying over Athens, Greece just looks silly.

King Arthur 2: The Roleplaying Wargame review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Even hardcore PC gamers will be forgiven for never having heard of the PC RPG/strategy series, King Arthur. That said, we hope gamers will start paying attention to this series as it's one of the most unique and fun new strategy games to come along in a while. The first game was a fairly obscure title that sought to combine Arthurian legend with the formula established by the Total War games.
  • Pros: Unique tone and setting, Building and customizing your army, Fun text-based quests
  • Cons: Poor AI in battles, Shallow kingdom building, Too much listening, not enough fighting

King Arthur II: The Role-Playing Wargame Review

GameSpot
16 February 2012
  • Excerpt: What happens when half of your game is flawed, but the other half is so good that you can sometimes overlook those flaws? That's the predicament in which King Arthur II: The Role-Playing Wargame finds itself. The role-playing aspect shines, presenting players with a good story and interesting decisions, but the wargame stumbles, suffering from technical issues and an AI with a poor grasp of tactics.
  • Pros: Storytelling evokes Arthurian legend in grand fashion, Morality system that's a step above good/evil scale, Great artwork and character design
  • Cons: Too many technical hiccups and frame rate issues, AI has a poor grasp of tactics, Combat is boring and tedious

  • Excerpt: Ubisoft‘s Dogz released on the PC, in 1995, was one of the first virtual pets games. Back then the most interesting thing to do was play fetch and listen to it bark. The game allowed you to use another programme while your dog roamed the desktop, but the invention of interactive pets didn’t include a competitive element and making them more of a novelty than a game. And that’s where current virtual pet’s games have developed.

King Arthur the Role-Playing Wargame Review

Gamers Daily News

  • Summary: If not for some massive loads times, some occasional lag and an incomplete and seemingly Steam-only multiplayer, it might very well have scored a ten.

King Arthur: The Role-Playing Wargame - PC - Review

GameZone
18 March 2010
  • Excerpt: To say that King Arthur is a well-known character is like saying we need air to breathe. In fact, the good King has been the subject of so many books, movies, games, comic books, animated adventures and other media that it would be very difficult to actually count them all. So, into this very well-tread chapter of fictional medieval history strides an adventure/strategy game that hopes to garner even more favor for our good friend, Arthur. Whew, that was long-winded.
