  • Summary: Set within a world of treachery, nobility and milk (yes, milk), Once Upon A Knight delivers powerful gameplay and forgoes conventions surrounding ordinary fantasy titles offering a milk-based economy, mother-in-laws, flying witches and secretive knights named Floyd. Players can chose to either jump right into battle in RTS mode, or slowly build up a character's attributes over time in RPG mode. Once Upon A Knight is set in a fully animated, highly detailed three-dimensional environment that features over 20 missions, hundreds of quests, creepy monsters, 80 different characters, countless spells and weaponry. Once Upon A Knight also offers LAN and online play where up to eight chivalrous gamers can test their skills and battle each other to discover who is the ultimate medieval master. [Atari] Expand

  1. The storyline is fun, and the game will make you chuckle, if not sometimes outright make you spit your soda onto the screen.
  2. Personally, I would have liked to have seen a little bit more attention given to the RPG aspect and more depth to the RTS elements of the game.
  3. The variety of gameplay styles and different options offers something for everyone's taste, and that is probably the game's biggest quality.
  4. There are better games in both the RPG and RTS genres.
  5. 60
    It's neither funny nor exciting, and the two genres it tries to meld are both shortchanged by the attempt.
  6. 60
    The best thing that can be said for OUaK is that there's plenty to do. The RPG and RTS games are distinctly different and each are enjoyable for several days of time you'd otherwise waste watching "Gilligan's Island" reruns or possibly eating.
  7. Perhaps if the game actually were funny it could be recommended as a spoof of serious games, but that’s just not the case. You get a basic and bland RPG combined with a basic and bland RTS game, and that’s about it.
