  • Summary: Some of the reviewers here must be kidding: Terrible balance (melee classes are way OP, Spell casters are useless), no quick travel and some very strange quests. This game is many things: A bad Diablo, a bad Baldurs Gate and a bad Neverwinter Nights.

Vanquish Evil in Lionheart...With Frustration

gabe549, Ciao
31 May 2011
  • Excerpt: ""Steel yourselves good Knights of God, for our battle is near, and the enemy's wake poison to this land." As a great fan of medieval times and fantasy, nothing made me happier than to learn that there was a Crusades-esque title for me to get my hands on which played out in a manner similar to other RPG's and the _Diablo_ series. My hopes held high upon receiving the title, yet they soon shrank into oblivion as I actually tried out _Lionheart_, a ...
  • Pros: Fantastic storyline, great subject matter
  • Cons: Aiming and combat is painful

Play the first chapter, then quit

L. Carr "leslie81", Amazon

  • Summary: As the title says, the first chapter of this game is very intruiging. You get to choose which factions to follow, how to develop your character and have an interesting world at your fingertips. Unfortunately, after that, the rest of the game is a major letdown. The plotline is obvious and very linear (your beginning choices no longer matter) and it quickly becomes boring and painful to play.

Game had an unfinished quality...

Serene, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm at a lull in between playing the newer releases, and decided to pick up Lionheart on a whim. Even at a fraction of the original cost, I found this game virtually unplayable. While the premise is original, I found the subject matter distasteful (too much focus on the inquisition), and the graphics tiny, outdated, and the character avatars really, really ugly. The game had an unfinished quality, and I found the combat at the beginning way too hard.

FANTASTIC

Dmg, Amazon

  • Summary: Lionheart: Legacy Of The Crusader is a wonderful game, which includes RPG, Action and Adventure. Even people, that are not big fans of RPG's will probably love this game, since there is a lot of action happening. Or if you don't like shooting game this'll probably suit you too, because it's 16th. century and you walk through medieval world full of adventures,...and of course magic. In 12th. century magic and evil spirits were released, it changed medieval Earth forever.

Good game, but could have been MUCH better

Dmg, Amazon
28 March 2004
  • Summary: This game is pretty strange so far. It takes a game like Diablo II and infuses Fallout's SPECIAL system. I love the Fallout series, and especially Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, so the SPECIAL system is something I'm used to and enjoy. Character creation isn't as indepth as I had hoped it to be, but it wasn't barebones either. There's a few gameplay elements that I like in the game, such as the spirits and quasi-historical references/characters/locations.

Unplayable for me

Kala, Amazon
1 December 2003
  • Summary: I bought this game and was hoping for a fun RPG experience. I thoroughly enjoy almost every RPG type game I play, and I was really excited about this one. My fiance and I both bought copies so we could play the multiplayer version as well! We instantly had problems installing and loading the game, we each had to uninstall and reinstall it once in order for it to work. We have high-end systems, since we both work in the computer game industry.

I have enjoyed this game

John Gromadzki, Amazon

  • Summary: I knew this product was Black Isle, so I was hoping it was on the same level as the Fallout series. I was not disappointed. This game is not a straight dungeon crawl. There are a multitude of quests to go on, and a lot of them involve running back and forth to places you have already been. (I personally hate that!) I think this may be more combat oriented than Fallout, and there isn't that dreaded timeline you have to beat. You simply get a quest, and accomplish it.

Diablo II revisited

D. Smith "webalchemy", Amazon
3 November 2003
  • Summary: If you liked Diablo II, you will most likely enjoy Lionheart. - Yes, the storyline and quests are rather shallow. But they are just complex enough to keep you interested in finding out what the next zone holds. - I really enjoy how quests are organized by active, completed and failed. With semi-completed portions of quests being greyed out, it is very easy to track what you need to do. - Learn lockpick and detect secret early on. You'll need them. - 800x600 video?

A sad, sad day for CRPG's...

Stephen Jones, Amazon
5 October 2003
  • Summary: I've been playing CRPG's since the early 90's. Currently I've been desperately searching for a decent CRPG. The last one that I've really enjoyed was Baldur's Gate 2. Now enter Lionheart. I've read about it last year and couldn't stop thinking about how great it would be. Fallout SPECIAL ruleset in an interesting fantasy setting? I figured I couldnt go wrong so I purchased it without reading a review. BIG mistake.
