Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Robin Hood: Defender of the Crown is a fusion of action, role-playing, and strategy genres that seamlessly blend cinematic presentations with unique medieval action-sequences. You must rely on your skill at sword fighting, castle sieges, jousting, daring archery ambushes, and massive army battles to restore England to its glory and remove the tyranny that plagues the land. Featuring an epic storyline that unfolds through the eyes of Robin Hood, you must battle your way to victory through action-oriented sequences. Their quest is to defeat all rival lords and the vile, yet powerful, Prince John. This malevolent aristocrat has usurped the throne and now sits as the illegitimate King of England. Acting on behalf of the people, Robin Hood must reunite England, end the dictatorial rule of Prince John, and restore the rightful king to the throne. Throughout your journey, you will interact with many of the characters that populate this timeless legend including Maid Marian, Little John, and Will Scarlet. These characters of old are presented through beautiful, cut-scene movies and voiced-over by professional British actors, and the game features a fully-orchestrated soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great if you like this type of game 1 Dec. 2003
Personally, I love this type of game and would subjectively give it five stars, but I am trying to be objective in giving it 4. I mean, it stars Robin Hood for goodness sake - the guy is a stylish hero!
This is essentially a strategy game with a little bit of action thrown in. Robin and his jolly band are camped out in Sherwood Forest close to the seat of the Sheriff of Nottingham. You start the game by hiding amongst the trees with your trusty bow and taking a first person viewpoint, attempting to shoot down some passing rich trader and his guards. This is not easy and takes some time to achieve any level of skill at.
You then withdraw to your base camp and have the choice of how to proceed - go back out with your bow to shoot more unlucky victims or raid a castle. Raiding castles is a third person beat-em-up that requires less skill. The point of these activities is to raise cash to buy more of an army.
As the game progresses you get more game options such as recruiting armies, moving them around, capturing territory, jousting etc. The ultimate aim being to capture the land owned by the evil King John.
For strategy fans, this is great. However, it will not appeal to the lover of action, special effects or seat-of-your-pants thrills. It takes thought, logic and some skill. If you like to spend your time considering what you will do next, you will love this game. It has enough depth to keep you entertained for days if not weeks.
Action 4/10
Graphics 6/10
Gameplay 9/10
Atmosphere 8/10
Lastability 9/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Hood Defender Of The Crown review. 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase
I bought this game because I used to play Defender Of The Crown on a commodore 64 in the 80s and also on the pc. The game is similar to the commodore 64 one with the added bonus of better graphics. This game in my opinion is an absolute classic and extremely addictive. The game is a 5 star game so enjoyable I was not disappointed when I started to play. I can't praise this game too highly. Overall a fantastic game I urge every ps2 owner to buy but it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best strategy game for PS2 4 Jan. 2014
By Alex
Verified Purchase
If you, like me, were a fan of defender of the crown on your commodore 64 you will love this game, its better in every area with large armies with loads of commands to deploy. Raiding, Jousting and siege battles have been improved and the map is bigger with perk territories that give your army a bonus. Its just brilliant and is a credit to the great system that is the PS2. If you buy this I don't think you'd be disappointed.
