  1. Fantastic. They do a great job of including the main parts of the legends of King Arthur and his Knights, but they deviate from it enough to improve on things. The best part is the little nods to The Holy Grail.
  2. Tries hard to be successful, but technical faults and the one major gameplay problem may dampen the experience for some. On the other hand, the game features some nice hack-n-slash action.

    To put it bluntly, the storytelling is a laughable farce. [July 2002, p.83]
  4. 45
    Although it had some great ideas (the RTS elements) and a cool storyline, the actual execution of the gameplay is mediocre.
  5. 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.
  6. 30
    So, we have annoying sound, minimalist save features, poor dialogue and voice acting, clumsy controls, and frustrating gameplay. Not exactly a recipe for success.

    Need more options to save, Dying when you get close to the end of a mission sucks having to start over again. I gave the game away.
