    Few strategy games this year have offered so much in the way of enjoyable story and gameplay.
  2. The game has it all: the lush surroundings will create a perfect atmosphere of medieval England, and together with the well animated characters they will make you feel a part of Robin Hood's adventures.
  3. 87
    It combines clever missions, interesting character abilities, and a smidgen of resource management into an absorbing game that fans of the strategy will be playing for quite some time.
  4. 82
    New features such as resource management and the non-linear mission path [are] great additions to the genre.

    It's the perfect setting for the players' own stories of daring rescues, bold ambushes, and swashbuckling high adventure. [Mar 2003, p.88]
  6. While Robin Hood isn’t a bad game, it doesn’t match up very well with "Desperados" or the "Commandos" games, and it seems curiously flat and unimaginative, especially after the slick, over-the-top feel to "Desperados."
  7. 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.

    Brilliance comes in many forms. I wasn't aware that it can come in a video game. I am now, however. Sure, there were a few bugs. But a Brilliance comes in many forms. I wasn't aware that it can come in a video game. I am now, however. Sure, there were a few bugs. But a game made with THIS level of thought and creativity must be tried out... I highly recommend it.

    This was an awesome game, but somewhere (won't say where to spoil anything) you'll find something very dumb and disappointing.

Anyway, I was addicted to this game from the moment I started playing it. Perhaps a sequel is in the works? Expand

    Well. It was a good stealth game when it came out.
    Playing it in 2017 i can firmly state that it did not age very well, although there is certainly a tremendous value in this dusty gem.
    Story is good, voicing is too, graphics are old, but the worse part is the game mechanic which today seems so outdated and unnecessarily cumbersome and bulky.

    Just bought this game at bargain bin of 2,49 euro. Lucky I did because framerate is utterly utterly terrible. Under 12 fps on my high endJust bought this game at bargain bin of 2,49 euro. Lucky I did because framerate is utterly utterly terrible. Under 12 fps on my high end gaming rig, and no, my graphics card gtx690 is NOT one of the graphic cards listed as not supported. Since I can't play the game at this rate I wouldn't know anything of how the game actually plays. A pitty but I will have to give it a 0. Expand
