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.
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.
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: The Role-Playing Wargame - PC - Review
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.
Excerpt: Hungarian developer NeoCore Games have designed a strategy wargame along similar lines to the Total War series. The game delves into the legend of King Arthur and manages to create a strong fantasy role playing atmosphere.
Summary: The sword in the stone, the lady in the lake, and the knights of the round table are all present and accounted for in King Arthur: The Role-playing Wargame. But this mix of role-playing, real-time strategy, and turn-based grand strategizing doesn't quite work out as smoothly as the infamous accident...
Pros: Captivating role playing with text quests for knights and unit leveling, Strategic innovations, such as victory locations on battlefields, Beautiful, detailed visuals that give a real English atmosphere
Cons: Very hard even on the easiest difficulty setting, Campaign is unbalanced and rather haphazardly designed, Some overpowered units
