Favorite Version of my Favorite game

Formal Treehouse, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: I loved DOTC for the NES, and this one expounds on it. It's similar enough to appeal to fans of the older versions, yet different enough that it's not the same game. The battles retain the appearance of the original with representations of units, but instead of just giving your troops an overall strategy like "Hold Your Ground" or "Outflank", you pick the unit you want to send and individual attacks for that unit. It's more like a board game.

Bring those walls down

oldies lover, Amazon
10 August 2012
  • Summary: My favorite part of the game is the castle seiges, as Little John puts it (years to build minutes to tear down). My second favorite is the caravan raids, while others say its hard or tricky I've had no problem with it, but I do bow hunt in real life and use a recurve bow so I do know how to aim. The only thing that I have a problem with is when I get a large quantity of gold built up I get raided.

"Enough Banter. Let's Fight." Awesome Graphics & Gameplay, But Too Many Liberties With The Well-Known Legend.

HAMLET, Amazon
6 September 2008
  • Summary: I liked this game, but there was a joke comparing kings to dogs that I found distasteful and uncharacteristic of Robin Hood (I guess this was due to the storyline, which took way too many liberties with the legend of the famous outlaw who stole from the rich & gave to the poor). Some of the egregious liberties taken (all of which I HATED): I. Robin saying that distasteful joke about dogs during dialogue with Marian about the remaining lords in England.

Robin Hood Meets Risk

That Review Guy, Amazon
1 January 2007
  • Summary: this is a Good game. with that said let me explain a few details. ok in sieges its almost like risk with armies of 100+ up to 400 pesants footmen archers knights and catapults make for a bunch of fun but some of the fun vanishes a bit with the risk style siege system but alas the game has redeeming features such as, Swordfighting in castle raids or Jousting to win fame or once again (yes cliche but still fun) Archery and where this game lost a star in my opinion!

Nostalgic Addictions

TRFB, Amazon
10 January 2005
  • Summary: I too once owned this game on the Commodore 64 back in the 80's. What a game. It's even better than back then!!! However, it is addicting and takes sometime to get the method of how to effectively build an army. I'm still getting the hang of it. Very fun. I judge a game on how addicting it is and this one is!!! Graphics are tight, the sound great, story line is even more involved than the original version. More to do. Cineware put out some cool games.

If you like the old school versions, you'll LOVE this game!!

Joe Blow "turbo20v18", Amazon
24 September 2004
  • Summary: DFC was my second favorite 8-bit Nintendo game (after Mega Man 2 of course ;) ). When I saw this on the shelf, and the quote on the back of the box saying "Based on the origional", I couldn't get home fast enough. Truth be told, I was more than pleased. Some folks on here whine about the graphics, and these complaints are completely unfounded. The graphics are fantastic, but if you're looking for an in-depth game with mind blowing graphics, go play Transformers.

Don't waiste your time.

M. Rogol "Home Cookin", Amazon

  • Summary: I think this game is so boring. It's more like a computer game. You can't even run around to get guys. Graphics are good. That's the only good thing I can say for it. I'm 11 years old.
