Graphics aren't really the best and I had to download some other program so this game can run on Win 8, but it's one of those games that give you old, good memories, so for me it was worth it.

Another Commandos like game jewel
If you played and liked Commandos, you will love this game. It is just the same, but situated to the Robin hood story. There are many characters you can lvl up and choose to your party to exactly fit the mission's needs. PLUS, since there is not much of shooting like in commandos, but mostly close combat, they added new element - when you drag your mouse around the character and he makes appropriate move and combats so gain another dimension of gameplay and fun.

GOOD things:
  • Another Commandos game, but not so hardcore
  • Funny characters' dialog lines
  • OLD game - you dont need powerfull hardware
BAD things:
  • OLD game - kinda outdated graphics for 22"+ monitors, but still VERY nice

Long ago, I played the demo of this game when I was a child. It was one of my favourite games ever!
Now, I get the full game and I can tell that this is a very good and enjoyable game to this day!

How can this game tagged as a mixed one on Steam??? I check the majority of the negative reviews and most of them are just complaining about how this game is lagging/doesn't work on their operation system at all. I feel that this is not fair at all, people are going to miss an awesome game. D: It's just a very old game so it needs an optimization! Still, it's up to you to buy it or not! Get it cheaper: I bought mine for 2 tf2 keys! I hope they will do something against this lagging stuff too.
For me it's running good, no lags or anything bad!

Anyway, back to the game:
I really like the atmosphere of this game, the map/model makers did a good job on it. The castles, the forest and the towns are idyllic and beautiful!
Sounds and music are also golden in this game! The song of the Sherwood is one of my favourite songs.
The characters are well made, everyone has useful abilities, my favourites are Will Scarlet (although, he has a very agressive playstyle, he got a slingshot which can take out people without killing them) and Little John (he is definitely not little but I like how he wakes up his fainted teammates and generally he is good against big crowd)

For now, let me tell you what is the bad thing in this game (because nothing is perfect!):
Just one: The zooming... just why did they add that? :V It's very pixelated when I zoom in and when I zoom out it's too small for me. Maybe the zoom out is useful.
To end this, let me share some tips to this game if you are a starter in this game:

-Pick up every scrolls and give money to the beggars! A scrolls can tell you many useful information like: characters' abilities, warnings and they can reveal soldiers who are in "shadows". What's more you can spawn more scrolls by giving money to the beggars! You can add more money to him for more informations but it's a waste of money if you give money to the beggars then he says: "Oh sugar!" or something. If he says that, don't give him more money because he will not give any information to you!

-Try to not kill so many soldiers if you can! A lot of Merry Men are going to join to you after every missions,if you don't kill many people! Those guys are very useful in the Sherwood Forest: they can make arrows, herbs which are actually "health packs" in this game. I don't prefer them in combats untill they are more skilled in fighting but you can still bring them to the missions as extra teammates!

-Know the characters' abilities, how they can fight and train them in the Sherwood Forest in you leave them there if you go to the mission (or just leave them to make arrows or something, it's up to you)!
-Collect the clovers! If your characters die, you can use these to bring them back! If you complete some tasks to the poor citizens they will give you these clovers!

That's all! Have fun with this game! :D

Great game, but it is pointless to buy it from steam because it simply won't run. The animation is so slow it is perfectly impossible to play, and yess, I checked the support site and downloaded DXWnd... after spending a considerable amount of time fooling with the fix, it still doesn't operate smoothly. just don't buy this from steam

This is a great game! but be aware; you may have to do some tweaking to get it working.

The game suffers from a terrible framerate bug on newer systems that makes it literally unplayable, however it can be fixed.

My thoughts on the game itself are at the bottom.

---Fix 1: Windows 7---

If you are running windows 7 you may be able to fix the game via changing the font localisation files, instructions to do this are here: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2803612
This won't fix the bugs on Windows 8 but it might be good to do anyway.

---Fix 2: Windows 8 and Windows 7---

If you're running windows 8 or if the above doesn't work then download a program called DXWnd found here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dxwnd/

- After extracting the file run the 'dxwnd' .exe
- A little blank window will open, select the 'edit' menu and click 'add'
- A window with a bunch of options and tabs will open, fill them out as follows:
- "NAME:" = Robin Hood (can be anything you like)
- "PATH:" = C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\Robin Hood\Game.exe
Note: you may have the game installed at a different location eg. "Program Files (x86)"
That's it, Hit OK and you should see 'Robin Hood' appear as an option from the window that was blank before.
- Select it and go >edit>run and the game will run smoothly
You will have to launch the game using this program or have DXWnd open when launching it from steam every time.

DXWnd is a hook program that you can use to get a lot of old games running smoothly on new systems, it won't hurt to replace the font files anyway if you still have some problems (in Fix 1). I didn't create DXWnd nor was I the one who worked out that it fixes the game. Sourceforge.net is a trustworthy site for developers and you can get more support from the guy who made the program there if you need it.

This fix isn't perfect, I get grapical artifacts from the mouse on the menus and it's crashed once but otherwise it's run perfectly so far. Resolution looks a bit blurry, I'll add a way to fix that if I find a mod or work it out.

---review---

As for the game itself. This was one of my favourites as a kid! You have a small team of robin hood and his merry men that you move around like a traditional RTS, each unit you control has 3 or so abilities which are mostly unique. Robin can knock people out with a punch, frier tuck can tie people up with rope, little john can carry bodies etc. you'll have to combine these abilities to get through situations. You will want to avoid fighting, once a character is locked in combat it becomes dificult to escape and they'll slowly die, some characters can't fight at all; so the game is about stealth. Things happen slowly in this game, abilities are executed slowly, it's all a bit sluggish and clunky but that's not really a detriment. You'll be waiting for the ideal time to make your move and planning out your aproach. The sluggishness might feel lame for some people but it works fine for what you're trying to achieve. The levels are very well designed, they're open ended and have plenty of little areas that are a bonus. You'll clear one area and in doing so work out a solution for another area, these areas often wrap around and encircle each other. You can clear a level very quickly after you've figured things out but the first time around it may take hours. It's very satisfying.

If you aren't a fan of stealth or clicky isometric games this isn't for you. It's about tactics and stealth, not combat.

Their aren't many games in this genre and this game is up there with some of the best. Isometric stealth games are dead now but it's well worth the few dollars it goes for on steam to try them out with this one.

props to thenikus for finding the fix for this game:

Amazing game! I first found this as a youngster and long regretted never completing it. I recently rediscovered it and within half an hour of playing I was COMPLETELY hooked once more. This game has truly stood the test of time with 3D isometric castles and forest settings that look gorgeous even by today's standards.

The real magic, however, is in the gameplay. Fans of stealth games such as Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed (not to mention the very similar Commandos) will especially enjoy the mechanics of Robin Hood. Citing Robin Hood's iconic chivalrous and humane nature, there is a very strong emphasis on using less-than-lethal force, with different character archetypes equipped with various skills to accomplish this. Isolated enemies can be subdued with a punch from behind; climb onto a rooftop and knock him out from range with a slingshot; or engage in combat and club him in the head.

The AI is relatively basic but very effective. Bodies must be quickly carried out of view to avoid detection (eg. into the nearest house or guard tower), and bound with twine to prevent them raising the alarm and/or returning to their posts when they regain consciousness. If any team member is spotted, or a guard is noticed missing from his post, the enemy will initiate a search of the area and recover any downed comrades they find.

A number of more tactical options provide myriad possibilities for dealing with large groups. Bee hives can be tossed into a crowd to allow Robin's men to quickly slip by in the ensuing confusion, whistles can be used to distract and mislead, purses of gold coins can be tossed in front of underpaid or unsupervised soldiers to prompt an entertaining fight, enticing ale can be dropped in an enemy's path causing them to become drunk and disoriented, agile men can skip around enemies by jumping across rooftops and climbing vines, or a net can be cast over a close group. More skilled enemies, such as knights and commanders, however, will be unconvinced by most of tactics and may even pull their understudies into line.

Lethal force can be used when necessary. Stealth approaches can allow enemies to be strangled to death, or on many occasions detection will force a swordfight. Of course, it wouldn't be a Robin Hood game without archery, and this is indeed a very effective lethal takedown from a safe range (the enemy employs many archers as well, however, and will impressively use other soldiers to shield their own archers from incoming arrows).

The relatively few main castle-based story missions are separated by a large number of targeted ambushes by Robin's crew in Sherwood Forest: the tax man, carts containing food, weapons and gold for the enemy war effort; small groups of passing soldiers; and messengers. The forest settings are not only beautiful but also filled with booby-traps the player can exploit to get the jump on unsuspecting enemy soldiers. I cannot emphasise enough how fantastic these are; the levels are jam-packed with hidden holes in the forest floor, piles of logs that can be pushed over, broad nets that can be triggered to capture anyone standing over them, and groups of friendly NPCs hiding amongst the trees waiting for Robin's signal.

In between missions, a treehouse camp in Sherwood serves as base for the Merry Men. Here, idle NPCs can be instructed to create all of the consumables the player requires during missions (eg. arrows) or trained and sent off to assist in the war.

The castle missions that drive the story forward are, at times, spectacular. The settings are gorgeous, the buildings are grand, and the level design is brilliant. Without spoiling anything, there are several missions later in the story where Robin must sneak around the castle to lower drawbridges, subdue generals and clear enemy archers to allow the rightful king's troops to invade the castle with minimal resistance. On that note, the story is basically about dethroning the king's brother who exploited an opportunity to have the true king kidnapped, thereafter resolving to drive the people into poverty and submission with extreme taxes and harsh discipline.

On a final note, this is a game where the player is truly responsible for creating their own fun. With instant quicksaves and quickloads, it is convenient and appealing to replay the same confrontation many times over to achieve the perfect result. Just as one probably could plough through a mission in Splinter Cell in minutes with an assault rifle, it would be a great shame to so abruptly betray the point of the game: elegant success, rather than simply completing the objective. I found myself replaying some parts MANY times to complete it to my standard of stealth and perfection, or even to maintain the illusion of realism at times where I felt the AI had been a bit incompetent. The game allows up to three planned actions per character to be coordinated simultaneously, which complements the style of the game perfectly (eg. if able to sneak up behind two enemies, you can plan two characters to simultaneously subdue one soldier each, and simply press a button to execute the plan when ready).

It was only towards the end that several of the intermediate missions become slightly tedious and repetitive, and it is great testament to the game that this is true. The maps and objectives differ little, in truth, but the gameplay is so fantastic that there are infinite ways to complete a mission, which is the core reason for the longevity of the entertainment on offer. This is a fantastic game in any era; it comes highly recommended by myself after thoroughly enjoying it- now one of my favourite games of all time.

A classic stealth-strategy game definitely worth playing through once. It's quite dated and the Steam version is currently buggy on newer PC's, but this may only be the English version. Some people have had luck patching their fonts files using http://www.gog.com/forum/robin_hood_legend_of_sherwood/the_game_running_slow/post25 or forcing DirectX 8 and/or windowed mode with DxWnd.
The gameplay is quite challenging and the visual and audio are very well done. Fighting uses unique gesture controls but the slow response time makes it tough to enjoy. Of course the point is to avoid conflict, so if you're into a challenging stealth RTS give it a try.
