Legion: Legend of Excalibur (PlayStation 2)

 

Legion has many sound concepts, but just about everything falls apart in the execution, resulting in a game that runs the gamut from frustrating to just plain terrible.

Legion: The Legend of Excalibur

 

King Arthur falls off his throne. Hard.

The most unforgivable sin, however, is lack of an in-mission save. Considering how large some of these missions are, not having a way to save your progress is absolutely criminal. Combine that with the muddy, dark graphics and what we have is a title...

You'd have more fun watching the movie then sitting through this dismal game.

Awesome cinematics; DVD extras

Idiotic AI; shallow gameplay; lame voice acting; poor execution; weak graphics

Legion: The Legend of Excalibur Review for the PS2

 

Definitely not the holy grail.

Kill everything!; A lot

Enough with the killing already; Repetitive; Poorly designed; A gussied-up hack 'n slash

One thing that is nice about Legion is the ease with which you can command your other troops. In any given level, you can have three sidekicks. Each one is relegated to an R or L button. By double-tapping a sidekick's button, you can play as that...

7 Studios' Arthurian hack and slash offers plenty of solid story ground work, but can the rest of the game hold up?

It's tough to even recommend the game as a rental, but should you want to spark some interest in the legend of King Arthur, the DVD extras and the peek behind the scenes at 7 Studios might be worth the cost of swinging by your local video store to...

Legion: The Legend of Excalibur is loosely based on the Arthurian legend in which Arthur draws the sword Excalibur and takes his rightful place on the throne as the King of Camelot. From there, the game take huge liberties with the classic story, so...

Decent looking environments; Fair as a hack-and-slash title

Mediocre voice-acting; Very little strategy needed; Weak camera; Poor save system

Legion suffers from a case of mediocrity. It's never so bad as to warrant burning the game in effigy, but the fact that it can't decide what genre it wants to be in leaves the whole game feeling flat. Plus, the game isn't too long, so you could easily...

If you remember the commercials and only the commercials, you probably thought this game looked pretty cool. What's not to love? You get to be King Arthur himself, leading huge armies into battle against advanced AI, while encountering various other...

OverallDon't come anywhere near this game. I give this game... a... uh.... 30. The only reason it gets that is cause you can burn down people's houses and watch 'em cry.

Underrated and Under Appreciated: King's Field: The Ancient City

 

While RPGs have gained quite a bit of mainstream popularity in recent years, there are still games out there that exist as niche titles. These games are the ones you see in the used game section—the rash purchase of a gamer who didn’t do his...

Great game, excellent atmosphere

Can be a bit daunting in the early going
