    If you think back to what Cinemaware games represented in the 80's, it was probably all about movie style presentation. Some of them featured great gameplay as well, like Wings, Rocket Ranger and It ...

    Nostalgia's not as much as it could be

    I remember playing Defender of the Crown on my brother's C64 and enjoying it 20 years ago. Unfortunately, it hasn't kept up with the times as well as I have. DoC tries to do both strategy and swor...

    A nice surprise. I didn't have many expectations for this game but it turned out to be a nice refreshing change from the same old stuff out there. I absolutely love the diversity in the game and the s...

    Defender of the Crown is a very hard strategy game that is repetitive but mildly fun.

    Robin Hood:Defender of the Crown is a game that will strike you with excellent graphics right on the box, but the gameplay is unfortunately not shown. When I got this game I thought I was getting a wa...

    This game brings back the old role playing/real time strategy at the same time!

    This game gets only better after the whole mess after the cut-scene of where King Richard gets captured and thrown into a foreign cell, awaiting ransom for his release. This comes to conclude that his...

    Well intergrated mix of genres (but mainly strategy). Light hearted, pleasant and very entertaining. It grows on you

    This is a real pleasant surprise. When I read the GS review, it really deterred me at frist. However, when I acutally saw the box in the shop and reading about the game from the backover of the box, I...

    I remember sitting away for many hours playing the origial Defender of the Crown, listening to the beeping and the blocky type CGA graphics. But now it was a refreshing change to play this on the Pla...

    Fans of DoTC will appreciate this more, but its still worth a look if you find it in a bargain bin.

    As many of you know if you've read my past reviews, I've always felt that games need to go back to the roots and find what it was that made the classics the great games that they still are today. S...

    I don't know what possessed me to buy this game. Probably, like most others, it's because I remembered how much I enjoyed the original release on my old computer system, and nostalgia got the better...

    Rated on February 18, 2006 by finalalchemist

    Robin Hood:DOTC is a strategy/action/FPS game. Strenge genre huh? But it is really fun! You start off in Sherwood Forrest with a traditional robin Hood storyline 'take from the rich and give to the po...
