King Arthur is a very unique RTS in how it tries to mix the classic genre which many will compare to Total War, with roleplaying aspects that set it apart from its main competitor.
+The battles are great! Standard human units mixable with beasts and the mythical sidhe! Each unit has its own pros and cons and has many different formations to help you adapt to different situations you may find your army in.
-The battles are also, very repetitive. Youll find trudging through the battles will be likely the only thing to turn you off from the game if you found it becoming hard to trudge through to the ending. Lucky there is an auto-battle function, but its not that great.
+The maps are beautifully designed and follow a capture the flag basis where your main goal is to capture victory points to lower the morale of your enemies.
-There unfortunately arent enough maps in the game, which further increases how repetitive the game is.
-+I find the graphics to be pretty decent, but many others may have an issue with how dated they are.
+The game sports a RPG-like quest system in the style of a CYOA book. These choices impact your characters based upon your actions.
+A Morality system rewards you for your actions and unlocks new abilities and units for your characters to use down four unique paths.
+Heroes and units can be upgrades and advanced by leveling them up, and heroes can even equip artifacts to enhance their strength.
+An in-depth kingdom management function allows you to set taxes, distribute or ration food, and build your kingdom the way you see fit. You can even give fiefdoms to your heroes (Whom govern of different efficacies based upon their skills which YOU have upgraded them with.)
+The expansions included in this collection enhance the game, making it more open and adding a diplomacy system in which your ability to rule as a king is greatly expanded.
Overall this game is truly a gem in a haystack. It didnt get the marketing it deserved but Id give this game a 7.5/10. It has flaws which make it seem mediocre at points, but it is strong in many of the aspect it tries to be. I wouldnt say you HAVE to pick this one up, but if youre an RTS or RPG fan, youll definitely enjoy this.
