    An enjoyable squad-based game... Think of it as "Commandos" for the tights-wearing set. [Feb 2003, p.84]
  2. The problem I quickly noticed in the game is that it takes forever to kill a knight or a strong footman.

    For all Robin Hood has going for it, it's constantly undone by one fatal flaw: the game cannot distinguish between challenge and frustration. [Feb 2003, p.78]
  4. It’s missing some key things like full 3D support for the maps and a more intuitive control interface that will prevent it from being well loved by most gamers.

    I recently picked this game up on a steam sale for dirt cheap and it holds up as well today as it did then. If you have played CommandoesI recently picked this game up on a steam sale for dirt cheap and it holds up as well today as it did then. If you have played Commandoes before this game is very similar if not a bit more accessible. Robin Hood Legend of Sherwood presents an incredible level of freedom in how you choose to approach a given mission.

    Its controlled with simple point and click and you draw lines or circles to control your character's attacks. Its very simple and intuitive. It presents different characters that you can use to help accomplish your objectives each with their own skill set. Friar tuck can throw bee hives or put down flasks to get guards drunk. Little John can tie enemy soldiers up that have been knocked out and carry them to hide them. Robin Hood as you might expect has a bow that can activate traps, etc. He also can throw coins at the more simple minded guards to get them to fight with one another.

    Each map is incredibly detailed with the later ones that take place in castles being incredibly vast.

    I have read that there may be some compatibility issues so check to see if your current system or graphics card is supported. Its still a great game worth checking out and can be found cheap.
