  • Summary: Live the true story behind the epic legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Based on the King Arthur movie from producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the King Arthur game lets you take control of one of five heroes, including Arthur, Lancelot, and Guinevere, each with unique weapons and skills. With three modes of battle, motion-captured fighting sequences and moves, and cutscenes from the film, King Arthur re-creates the events of this legendary tale. Collapse

  1. Taking things into consideration, in an industry where videogames based on film licenses generally fail to match the level of quality, King Arthur does surprisingly well in conveying much of the film’s storytelling and cinematic features.
  2. In the end, it does a decent job of bringing the massive battle formula to the King Arthur license. [Feb 2005, p.9]
  3. Numerous playable characters are a big plus, but the repetitive enemies and environments are not. However, I'm always a fan of good cooperative play, which this title successfully incorporates. [Nov 2004, p.149]
  4. While the game can't really hold a candle to the "Dynasty Warriors" games in terms of quality and exploration, it really isn't all that bad.
  5. 60
    Most importantly, the gameplay feels just a bit looser and less controlled. That's not to say it fails -- it just could have been better.
  6. Although there's good ideas under the surface, King Arthur is boring, unpleasant, and just no fun.
  7. For anyone who likes their games to be more than a desperately frustrating chore we recommend steering clear of this one like the Black Death.
