King Arthur - Review @ Stategy Informer

by Magerette, 2009-12-11 16:13:56

Strategy Informer posts their review of Neocore's  roleplaying wargame hybrid, King Arthur, and as might be expected from a strategy gaming site, mostly likes what they see. Scorewise, the game gets an 8/10.

On the roleplaying element:

But lore and fantasy may well be the primary attraction for some of you, and in that respect Neocore rarely disappoints. Traditional questing and the balance of power advances the storyline along predetermined but incredibly numerous paths, with minimal signposting as to exactly what your actions are achieving. In that respect, Arthur is a much more hardcore role-playing experience than most focussed RPG titles, and outside of a cursory overview of narrative event interaction, you’re pretty much left to your own devices to turn your legend into the character you want him to be.


In an earlier newsbit,  they note that a demo may be in the works, and that due to the "set-up of the game," modding tools are unlikely to be made available.
