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.

  • 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. The story starts with you as Robin Hood in Sherwood forest. You have to defeat the Sheriff of Nottingham in a similar style of play that made the original Defender so great.

Worth it!

  • 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. The game does get monotonous at times, but it doesn't daunt me too much from enjoying it. The strategy of the game is very challenging and keeps the game going.
