Storytelling evokes Arthurian legend in grand fashion.
Morality system that's a step above good/evil scale.
Great artwork and character design.
Too many technical hiccups and frame rate issues.
AI has a poor grasp of tactics.
Combat is boring and tedious.
Lousy controls and camera.
Lots of pointless game elements.
