YEAH!- i love king arthurs legends.
so first of all this game is for those who like the knights of round table and all stories conected to them. also this game is interpretation of those leneds so you have to open minded.
lets begin the review.
i will say in the first place what is wrong with game. The bigest problem of the game ( and like only) is game mechanics. starts well isnt it?
so total wars battle map is better than in KA-TRW. battles are not broken but are based on heroes ( the funny thing is that it is true to the lore, cause in legends heroes won the battles :) ) and its not so strategical battle after all. Also eveling system of the units shakes a thing little( you can reaserch your troops to better troops. it changes they stats and how they look but it shakes much the game- but still to be able to play it with fun)
last thing is that you can only command one army during the battle. thats baaad... what else, ah yes. as long as computer make more mixed armies you can also make more fun based armies. but in the end you will fight against armies contained from best of the best units...and its boring and its SU***...
-----so lets go to the better part of it:
atmosphere- it is greate! just grate you have to see on your own eyes.
campaign map- from mechanical point of view its not so grounf breaking. BUT!
it is pteety open britan wher you can conquer all provinces make alliances and on the map you have quests. and those quest are heavily based on what you do on map and on all those little kingdoms you are surendered with. and the game makes you feel like errant knight going from one adventure to another.
look- the game looks good, the clone units are just anoying but still they look good, there is variaety of troops and heroes and everything is in motion.
story- the stories are what makes this game so good. every quest have its own storie and thanks to that even "pls go and kill bad guy" feels far more intresting.
interpretation- i think its a great interpretation og King arthurs legends
-------------------------so i would give the game like 7.5/10 cause mechanics are not to good and since battles should be the best part of the game due to mechanics they are not.
