    Although the action sequences are weak, the overall game play experience is loads of fun. [Feb 2003, p.160]
  2. It's just too bad the developers didn't see fit to add any new gameplay features or a multiplayer mode.
  3. 60
    With its easily whipped arcade sequences, utter lack of strategic depth, and painfully unrewarding still-screen ending sequence, DotC provides an experience about as vacuous as the cheesy flicks that inspired Cinemaware's birth.

    Horrific, no fun or strategy at all. The gamespy review is all the reasons why this game should be given a mega low score rather than a 60. Horrific, no fun or strategy at all. The gamespy review is all the reasons why this game should be given a mega low score rather than a 60. The 'mini games' of sword fighting and jousting are simplist and painfully boring and repetitive yet crucial for success. You would have more fun eating the game cart than playing it. Full Review »

    Jousting is fun, but the game is full of random events that totally sap any actual strategy out of it. Even on easy you will need cheat codes.
