“King Arthur II – The Role-Playing Wargame” (KA2) is a sequel to “King Arthur – The Role-Playing Wargame (KA1)”. It may seem odd for a wargame to have a sequel - no one expects “Hearts of Iron 2” to have a different storyline than “Hearts of Iron”...

While it seems Role Playing Game elements are being inserted into every genre imaginable these days, the unique blend of turn-based and real-time strategy the Total War series is known for has remained on an island of its own. King Arthur II sets out...

Despite its subtitles' best efforts to clear things up, King Arthur 2: The Role-Playing Wargame is confusing. I get that it's a fantasy-themed Total War clone with a campaign that fancifully retells the tale of the fall of Camelot, as Arthur's realm...

Making a game is a lot like baking a cake. Take it out of the oven too soon and you're greeted by a flat, stodgy mess; too long and you'll burn down your house. King Arthur II: The Role Playing Game is a good example of an underbaked game, one that...

The idea behind the King Arthur franchise is to take everything that nerdy old school PC gamers like, throw it in a blender, and add some modern production values. The latest entry, King Arthur II: The Role-Playing Wargame, just about pulls it off....

International Review By Spieletest on 78

Nach King Arthur 1, das mich seinerzeit einfach nur in allen Punkten positiv überraschte, waren hier meine Erwartungen höher gesteckt. Man könnte mir vorwerfen, ich hätte die Messlatte vor dem ersten Start gleich zu hoch angelegt, aber ich denke, ich...

International Review By GameCaptain on 70

King Arthur hat ein großes Problem, und das heißt Total War. Das weiß auch Neocore und hat im zweiten Teil den Rollenspielpart ausgebaut, dafür andere Elemente gestrichen (Tafelrunde, Generäle). Der Rollenspielteil hat mich dann auch bei der Stange...
