  • Summary: Played out through an epic tale of a hero who seeks to liberate his people from the tyranny of enslavement, Haven: Call of the King provides total freedom to move anywhere both on foot or vehicle and spans seamless transitions between turret-based shooting, boat racing, bike battles, plane flight, gladiator arena combat and space exploration.

  1. A spectacular, inventive, wondrous adventure. The lead is a bit of an odd-ball, but everything else is the stuff of dreams. [Jan 2003, p.68]
  2. Quite involving after a while with some excellent puzzles for you to solve and many strange people to talk to, but it does take quite a while to get into.
  3. The fast-paced, quickly changing gameplay is refreshingly unordinary.
  4. 70
    Despite the intended scope of the game, Haven’s sights and sounds are barely average.
  5. While not perfect, Haven: Call of the King works on many levels—as a platformer, as vehicular racing title, as a centerpiece for fine soundtrack work.
  6. What we have here is a great engine and design screaming for some character and story help.
  7. It would have worked better had the game allowed you to switch from any of these game styles at will. I think that was the original idea, but sadly it all turns out overly scripted and directed.
