    Oh boy yay another LOTR clone... Like Forgotten Realms that copied Two Towers Arthur copies Return of the King with co-op for that I don't give it a 3 but it's still not too fun. Seeing your character just flail around with his swords hitting everything in a dark ugly enviroment and unskippable movie sequences are a annoyance as well not only that but they are LOOOOOOOOONNNGGG!

  1. Game play can be summed up in one word…repetitive.
  2. 50
    While the uninspiring movie didn't help matters, it's the lethargic gameplay that winds up making King Arthur an equally disappointing game. Repetitive and frustrating, it fails to live up to the potential of its cinematic presentation.
  3. King Arthur’s problems begin with its controls. I am fully aware that this is an action game, but it is not one with much depth to it by any means. So why are not one, not two, but five attack buttons needed? The answer: They aren’t.
