Über das Spiel

Von Kritiker und Spielern gleichermaßen hochgelobt wurde King Arthur als eine der größte Überraschungen der Spiele des Jahres 2010 anerkannt. Nun kehrt das Fantasie/Rollenspiel RTS mit einer Fortsetzung zurück, um die Grenzen dieses Genres auszuweiten.

Unsere Geschichte beginnt lange nachdem der junge Artus das verzauberte Schwert aus dem Stein zog und damit das vom Krieg erschütterte Land Britannien vereinigte, und die Ritter der Tafelrunde versammelte, um dann den Frieden in Camelot mit Hilfe der Macht des Heiligen Grals zu sichern. Wo die Legende normalerweise endet beginnt King Arthur II mit seiner eigenen grauenhaften Geschichte.

Hauptmerkmale

  • Dunkler Fantasieschauplatz. König Artus ist nun der Fischerkönig, der versucht ein gespaltenes Land wieder zusammenzuflicken, während er sich bemüht sich selbst zu heilen.
  • Erbitterte Bosskämpfe, bei denen die Streitkräfte des Helden einzigartigen und furchterregenden Feinden gegenüber stehen.
  • Verlieren Sie sich in einer atemberaubenden Geschichte, welche sich über eine riesige 3D Kampagnenkarte mit ritterlichen Aufgaben und anderen Sonderereignissen entfaltet.
  • Eine umfangreiche Auswahl an Kamerasteuerungsoptionen, verbesserte Animationen und eine ausführliche Anleitung erschaffen eine zugänglichere und optisch überwältigende Erfahrung.

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.

Pros:I can't get enough of this game! Beautifully designed graphics and nice gameplay. Also the battles are huge! Should keep me playing for a long time.


Cons:Can be a bit hard to learn for some(I got it really easy because I play lots of these games)

ok so having had problems to start and after airhead techies from paradox who did not know what to do, i figured out and fixed my own problems, afterwhich i have enjoyed playing the game (as long as it worked properly).

NOTE:
-lowering graphics can help
-making sure it is searching for a graphics card you catually have (for some reason it looked for one i did not have)
-don't mess with the raw code if you don't know what you are doing.
-if you do know what you are doing changing thie number of bites it takes to run can also help

if you exit mid battle it will shift all your text axises from your last save on, to fix: manually fight the battle with the messed up axis and save after battle. then restart whole game.

yes there are bug and man that can get annoying, but i have yet to play the truly PERFECT game, and so the flow was nice the strategy was fun and playing from random points forward. all having been said i liked the ability to have better control over resources and armies in the first king arthur, i likes the shards, crafting recipies, building upgrades, and the story, and story quests were easier to follow logically, and know what to do. though a hint about not getting a second army until i complete Morgana's quest would have been nice. a truly good mix between RPG, Turn-based, and RTS each played a part, but to win you need to be decent at RTS.

if you are looking for an in depth story-line from both main quest and prologue then this is the game to have, but remember there will be bugs to deal with, and in order to stay sane you'll have to stay patient.

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.
