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.

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. 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.

  • 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.

Amazingly Playable!

  • 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! You'll end up playing it again and again until you can master it and kill all the riders before you get hit yourself. The cut-scenes are also astounding.
