    Without the strategy element to back it up, combat (by which I mean tapping the same button over and over) gets repetitive quickly. [August 2002, p.124]
  2. If you're looking for an easy hack-n-slash to play in between servings of some better, more robust game, then Legion: The Legend of Excalibur might not be a bad rental.

    So, we have annoying sound, minimalist save features, poor dialogue and voice acting, clumsy controls, and frustrating gameplay. Not exactly a recipe for success.

    Looks aren't everything, and the game falls directly on its noble ass. [August 2002, p.78]
  5. Nothing short of an utter failure. Though Seven Studios did many things right, the horrible gameplay drags the rest of the game down.
  6. With poor design, few "levels" and frustrating gameplay, there’s not a lot here to praise.
  7. Legion has many sound concepts, but just about everything falls apart in the execution, resulting in a game that runs the gamut from frustrating to just plain terrible.
  8. 45
    Although it had some great ideas (the RTS elements) and a cool storyline, the actual execution of the gameplay is mediocre.
  9. Control issues and poor voice acting mar what could have been a superlative title.
  10. Play Magazine

    Not a whole lot went right here, other than the cinemas, which are gorgeous. [July 2002, p.82]

    Actually really enjoyed this game. Had an Age Of Empires vibe about it and with pretty decent graphics.
