3DAvenue reviews Lionheart

3DAvenue have reviewed the flagrantly 2D Lionheart. They gave it a not-great-but-better-than-most 79 out of 100.
After receiving what has to be a disappointing reception for Black Isle from early previews and reviews, I really can not agree with the majority of complaints and statements that suggest this game is a failure. Sure, it has been done plenty of times before, and in some regards, it has been done better, but Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader is still a solid RPG experience. I personally do not play a huge amount of RPGs, so maybe my perception of Lionheart is influenced by the fact my opinion is not that of an expert's, but regardless of how I judge it, the fact remains most of the strong elements that make an RPG great are found here in Lionheart, it just doesn't stray much further beyond those. This is certainly not an ideal opening to what is a probable series with future additions to come, but it is certainly not a failure by any means. It is my opinion that most RPG fans will atleast get their money's worth with Lionheart.
Given that he fails to mention how the last half of the game is pure hack n slash, I'd say this is another example of a site that plays the game for a day and then posts a "review".
