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...
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.
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.
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: 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: I bought this game because I used to play Defender Of The Crown on a commodore 64 in the 80s and also on the pc. The game is similar to the commodore 64 one with the added bonus of better graphics. This game in my opinion is an absolute classic and extremely addictive.
Summary: If you, like me, were a fan of defender of the crown on your commodore 64 you will love this game, its better in every area with large armies with loads of commands to deploy. Raiding, Jousting and siege battles have been improved and the map is bigger with perk territories that give your army a...
