King arthur 2 is a Turn-based Strategy rpg. It takes place (as is obvious from the title) During the mythical time of king arthur and his knights of the round table. This aspect adds alot of fantasy elements into the game and is a nice change of pace from all the historical strategy games on the market today.

The story and narration in king arthur are very well done. Quests feel fun to do with multiple ways to complete many of them.The only let down with the questing is that it generally falls into 2 types of quests: text based and combat quests meaning you either have to read tons of text or go to a set area with your army and kill something,Thats all you really do.

The fantasy elements come at a high price: Basic human units feel weak and lackluster when compared to high fantasy golems, dragons and shape shifting warriors.Therefore by games end you will have replaced the majority of your army with fantasy units rather than human infantry and archers.

The addition of magic into the game adds more depth to the way you fight battles, But sadly magic in both King arthur games feels overpowered to the extreme.It is possible to win battles without ever firing a single arrow or engaging in hand-to-hand combat.The enemy AI in the game also has to capability to decimate your entire army with magic.

Lastly heroes in the game are capable of winning entire battles almost single handedly.As a result the rest of your army is reverted to a support role,Taking damage so your hero can close the range to engage with melee or magic attacks.

All these things mean that you will be forced to fill your armies with as many overpowered fantasy units as possible. Because you can rest assured that the Ai armies wiil be packed with them.

overall unless you find this game on sale i would say avoid it.The game constantly nudges you in the way it wants you to play rather than allowing you free reign to go where you want and attack whoever you want.

An intresting game, I personally like the first one better in the army mechanics and how you ran your lands, but the story in king arthur 2 is an intresting enough for a play though. I think the magic works better than in the KA1 and it pretty epic to watch a whole group of spearmen get taken out by a lighting bolt. So if you see it on sale pick it up.

The game keeps freezing on me in the same spot on the campaign every time. I am restarting it on a new computer and maybe with a new download that will help, but it is extremely annoying to not be able to progress. That said, if that were not an issue it would definitely be a game that makes my top ten as I enjoy both RPG and RTS and this KA2 does a satisfactory, if not great, job of blending the two. Graphics are a little dated, but the gameplay makes up for it usually.

I see alot of folks having troubles about saying this game is broken

I couldn't get the game to even start

my solution
update video card drivers
Right click King Arthur II, bring up properties, browse local files,
Create a desktop shortcut for the coretech file that matches your system setup
Launch from the shortcut instead of in Steam,

Since then I have been happily playing this game without an issue,

I wouldn't compare it to Total War at all though, it's more akin to the Warhammer:Chaos March,
it has RPG quests, and Battle Quests, I havn't made it far enough in the game to see the lasting effects of the RPG elements,
I can't make up my mind about this game,
On some levels it seems like the dev's tried to make an amazing game,
but on some levels it seems like this game was neglected in coding and just has alot of rough edges
once I'd gotten past the bugs and am now getting the hang of the game, it's alot of fun
The voice acting is great, and the writing for the quests is actually pretty good, the melding of Roman/Britannia/Welsh/Pictish history with legend is a neat concept, and the factions are all fleshed out with interesting stories and quests are tied into the details of these legends and stories,
The tactical battles are a little frustrating at first, they are not as smooth as TW so I was a little annoyed initially with the controls, but with some practice, and patience I've found the AI to be pretty good, and presents a fun challenge with it's tactics,
the graphics are superb, units are very detailed and the military progression system gives a neat little visual perks(and big stat boosts) to your faction as you progress, feels like my army will be UBER CRAZY POWER AWESOME! by the end of my campaign, animations are a little clunky, and the unit responsiveness is kind of slow, you have to be very precise in your moves and formations, also really like the art style it's very dark, and feels unique to this game.
Sound, and voice acting are very good too
Music is odd, it sounds like it should be in some steampunk game,
Will edit review as things arise

A mix between RPG and RTS, this game shines with its immersive adventure quests, yet technical problems spoil the fun.

This review was written February 8, 2012. It is based on about 20+ hours in the main campaign, and 20+ hours in the prologue (dead legion DLC). I will update this review when I beat the game if it changes anything.

THE GOOD

- Text adventures make a welcome come back; they are pretty well done and are the main element that gives KA its flavor and uniqueness.
- Voice acting has improved since KA1, at least this voice seems deeper and better at reading the text without rushing it. Sometimes however the voice acting becomes very bad, especially when the same actor tries to voice other characters (women, monsters) while telling a story.
- Big improvement on the graphics, especially on the campaign map which is a lot more detailed, believable, and immersive. (Especially in the prologue DLC.)
- New spell protection system is a welcome addition, no more having multiple stacks getting decimated in a blink because of one well-placed spell. Addition of a casting delay to spells helps by giving you a chance to react.
- New diplomacy system with other factions. It adds some welcome depth to the game.
- Pacing seems better than in the original. At least I didn't see any enemy going into an army spawning frenzy, or what the community called the "whack the mole" mechanic in the first game.
- Estimated play time seems decent. It should take you about 40-50 hours on a challenging difficulty, maybe less if you auto resolve a lot of the battles. There is some replay value since you can do the text quests again with different decisions to see what happens.


THE BAD

- Horrible performance even on beast machines. I was getting 9-12 FPS on high settings (on a 6 core 3.2gh), and finally managed to get 20-25 with everything on lowest possible. At lowest settings problems surface like being unable to see clearly which units are selected, winter time turns into a white light mess, and so on. This might be a deal breaker for a lot of people.
- Loss of the province management aspect. No more management of gold and food incomes. In fact there is no more food in the game, and you only gain gold from quests and battle loot. Other elements like natural disasters (floods, plagues, etc.), and all the laws and decrees are gone too. As a result the whole "kingdom management" aspect of the game is mostly gone and reduces the depth of the game.

REVIEW

King Arthur makes a comeback, and the result is overall "good enough" by being neither great nor bad. The text adventures are still fun as ever, adding a wild card to the gameplay which puts you in a wide variety of situations, and gives a unique flavor to the story telling in this game.

The biggest change seems to be the simplification of many aspect of the game, which results in a clear loss of depth and replayability, but at the same time makes the game more accessible to casual players. The first King Arthur was a trinity of battle, management, and text adventures. King Arthur 2 is a duality of battle and text adventure only since the management aspect is mostly gone.

Even if regrettable, this change isn't all bad. The campaign seemed to have more "flow" to it than in the previous game. You will find yourself passing the turns faster since you don't have to take as many decisions, the game is now more comparable to a relaxing read of a book than a struggle to expand your realm, fight the enemy, and deal with the random events and quest spawning frenzy. In other words, the kingdom management is gone but the game is now a more refined adventure game.

Unfortunately some of the more serious technical shortcomings present in the first King Arthur are still present. The random crashes seem to be mostly gone; thankfully I only crashed a couple of times so far. But the extremely low performance and framerate problem is still here. I also found quite a few bugs, like having the narrator reading the wrong text for a quest, campaign map objects flickering, reserve units disappearing, and archer upgrades from buildings affecting their melee damage instead of ranged damage, etc. Also I encountered 2 game stopping bugs myself, and other players reported half a dozen game breaking bugs just days after release.

CONCLUSION

Your experience with the game will vary wildly depending on the performance you get. If the game runs well, you will probably enjoy it as it is a very charming game, and even if it has lost some of its depth I feel the game gives enough entertainment value for its pricetag.

On the other hand, if you are getting bad to horrible performance, the game will be near unplayable and it might be a deal breaker for you. I highly recommend you try the demo to see how the game runs on your machine. The first KA still gets 12 FPS on my machines after 7 patches, so if history repeats itself as usual a quick fix to the performance problem is not going to happen. However it is worth mentioning that the Neocore team is active on the forums and seems to be working actively on fixing bugs.

Of course if you consider yourself a fan of the series, you will probably want to buy the game and play it even with the bad performance and the buggy release. I know a number of people will do this, as I did myself since the game is somewhat playable for me (25fps) on minimal settings.

So the bottom line is:

1) If you are a fan of the series you will want to buy it and be patient while bugs get fixed.
2) If this is your first King Arthur game you might want to wait for a couple of patches or a sale.
3) In all cases trying the demo first is highly recommended since the performance issue is probably a big, if not the biggest factor in your purchase decision.

To begin with, it is not King Arthur 2, it's rather King Arthur 1.5 or something. It's not completely bad, however I would recommendt it only to fans of the dual strategy genre (turn-based strategic level and realtime battles).
Pros:
1. It's beautiful, both on the strategy maps (the daylight changes!) and during battles.
2. There is an enormous number of units types, particuarly including the expansion.
3. It has all the great things from King Arthur 1 and its expansions in one game....
Cons:
1. ...but nothing more - and in fact, less.
2. Where is a proper economy?
3. Why can't I create armies when I want to?
4. Why the adventures are still a series of dialog choices? (in fact - more limited, as the characters attributes are stripped down)
And if you want a challenge, play at a higher difficulty level.

Medieval: TOTAL WAR meets Heroes of Might and Magic(s).

I have fixed a common FPS problem by ensuring all .exe files in steamapps>common>kingarthurii are marked "run as administrator."

After solving this issue, running the .exe through Kingarthur's game folder (NOT STEAM), the game runs great! The graphics are an improvement from King Arthur 1, and the campaign-map gameplay has changed significantly.

The ambiance is pleasant and the battles challenging (if you want them to be) enough to keep my interest for much longer than anticipated. After 20 hours of gameplay, I have not yet completed the third of four acts, so expect to invest a good (estimated) 30 hours into completing the game.

The best way to describe this game is how the title describes it, the role playing wargame, that essentially boils down to a Total War game with RPG elements. Unfortunately the units and battles are not very balanced at all, there is no incentive to having cheaper units as there is no upkeep or economy, so there is no point in not just stacking your armies with the best most expensive units. The rpg elements in the game are pretty good though. You essentially start out by choosing a class which gives you a bonus to either leadership, magic, or combat and gives you different spells to learn. You choose how to level up your character and units by choosing different spells and stats to upgrade. You then go out and fight armies and complete "quests" to gain new items and bonuses. Your decisions effect your morality (akin to Medieval 2 total war) moving from tyrant to rightful or christian to pagan ruler. A decent game for strategy/rpg fans but i would wait for a sale to get it.

As of a couple of hours in I think a few things need to be pointed out for fans of the original.
One, archers are no longer the godly force they were in the first game.
Second the army strength bar is gone, so if you're enemy is still hiding forces in forests you will have no guess as to how many there are.
Third, I am not sure if this is a coding issue, but the game chews a lot of system resources, and my PC isn't slow, but without being on max settings the game glitches if I try to alt+tab, shift-tab or do anything else that involves leaving it. Also the loading times are pretty unpleasant.

Otherwise it's the first game all over again with a graphics touch-up, some redesigned features from the first and actual voice-acted RPG sections. Good? Yes. Worth buying right now? Probably not. Wait for some patches or prepare for horrific loading times.
