Sir Lionel, a brave knight from Britannia, is on a quest to rescue a damsel in distress. Lady Corrigan of the Sidhe, an enchantress of the twilight, is seeking the secret pathways that will lead her back to her lost home of Tir na nOg. Drest the Chosen, a prophet of the North, is drawn by the mystic voices and visions to explore the wild lands. Tied together by strings of fate, these three heroes must join hands in order to prevail as champions of a forgotten battle that began long time ago. Collapse

    Fallen Champion is a nice stand-alone digression for those who crave for King Arthur's imminent sequel and for whom are simply intrigued by this epic saga for the first time. Suggested to every gamer in search of some fresh strategy during this long summer.

    Fallen Champions has some strong AI and has a lot to offer, mainly because every mission has to be played differently. Even though you'll get through it very fast, the challenging missions will keep you coming back for more. It is however a shame that there are no checkpoints to be found during the battles.

    Fallen Champions is a short and mostly sweet compression of many of the good elements in its King Arthur predecessor.

    Ultimately though I found myself sat in front of my computer, scratching my unkempt beard and trying to answer the question: who is the game for?

    Neocore seems to have completely misunderstood what made King Arthur great. It's stripped out all the parts of the game that made it loveable and left a watered down, medieval Dawn of War II wannabe in its place. We just hope that Fallen Champions isn't an indication of what's to come from King Arthur 2.

    This is strictly a game for those who have run out of RTS games and have nothing to play until the Christmas games come out. There is probably ten bucks of gameplay in here, though.

    King Arthur: Fallen Champions needs what it simply won't get -- varied units, improved AI, and some more thought placed into tactics and the utility of formations. I can't speak to the rest of the series, but unless you're a diehard fan, feel free to skip this one.

    When I bought the expansion to King Arthur, the Roleplaying Wargame (a game I had enjoyed immensly despite its flaws) I thought it would be an extra map or something that plays similar to the original. To my dismay, they decided to make it a completely different game. Now it's linear, with way too much quest text and way too rigid scenarios. I stopped playing after a few scenarios and gave up on it, it's just not nearly as fun as the original game.

    If only they'd make an expansion that plays like the original game, just a continuation of it rather than making something completely different. Bleh!

    It's a game somewhat like Rome Total War or Warhammer Dark Omen except that the units have more special abilities and the battles are heavily scprited (missions). Before you can start any battle, you have to dig thru an endless sequence of branching dialogs which tell you the story (since I am not a keen reader I attempted to just skip all that rubbish to finally see the battles, but got stuck in looping branches meaning, you do have to read them which is pretty frustrating). Ok, then I tried two missions, one for the archer hero and one for the warrior one. The archer's first mission is ridiculous: every time an enemy partol sees you they run away and alert the whole map, bringing so many enemies to you that you can't win. Even if you leave the spot where the patrol saw you, the enemies will still find you anywhere. I gave up on this after 2 tries. The mission for the warrior puts you on the edge of the map, and the whole map seems to be surrounded by high mountains with no hope to get inside. The camera is locked to the units, you just can't view the field freely to see where you have to go. So, I gave up on that one, too. Frankly, I'd give this game a 0 since I couldn't play it. I did see the interesting abilities though (which i couldn't really test in battle). The 2D GUI of the game looks very dated though the models of soldiers in the units are insanely detailed. A very strange game with lots of wasted development effort, and definitely an unplayable one. Expand
