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

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).
Summary: I remember being about thirteen, coming home from school and playing this game on my Apple IIgs. Hours upon hours wasted. Well, now I can waste even more because Capcom has released it on Xbox and Playstation, completely updated yet very faithful to the original.
Summary: O.K, I bought this game because of what all of the other online reviewers said about it. I was very disappointed. Although it's an interesting and original game it has some serious shortcoming. It's almost impossible to hit the men on horseback with your bow.
Summary: I bought this game and absolutely love it! I played the original on the Amiga, and this new version is very much in keeping with it, yet has come on a long way. All of the mini-games look and feel excellent. Your first exposure to them is an archery raid, which is SO addictive!
Summary: So I think this game sounds good but I need to know if this is real swordfighting or like Final Fantasy where you attack and they attack. I like the real swordfighting better and really want to know.
Summary: This game has been very entertaining, and brings a new style/perspective to games that have been lost for a long time. A lot of games these days have missed the gameplay aspect in favor of flashy graphics. This has both.
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...
If you like the old school versions, you'll LOVE this game!!

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.
