[Game] Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader

Lionheart - CrusaderIf you can stand the abysmal game-play, you might visit one of the most fascinating settings in a game yet, and explore writing that might as well be the finest in the medium. Probably one of the most unfortunate wastes of a good game I ever had the pleasure to read, and torment to play. 😦

I mean, seriously, what’s up with that writing? There are Shakespeare, Leonardo Da Vinci and Nostradamus as characters in this game, and their dialogue actually does them justice.


Positive: Negative:
Some fairly beautiful hand-drawn environment design Outdated visuals in general
Fascinating setting of alternate history of Renaissance Europe Story never really comes around to grip you
Fantastic writing; the dialogue is so poignant every second line gave me shivers Ends with a whimper rather than a bang
Game-play that’s slightly less fun than repeatedly banging your head at the wall
