UGO thinks Lionheart is just peachy

UGO have reviewed the near-infamous Lionheart. They seemed to like it and it nets a final score of B.

When it comes to the actual in-game action, Lionheart doesn't really have anything overly impressive on show, and unfortunately, the most essential part of any RPG is the actual gameplay. Don't get me wrong, Lionheart doesn't necessarily have any specific factor which destroys its gameplay, it just doesn't seem to have anything special or unique that sets it apart from the rest, and in this day and age, for an RPG to be successful, something is needed to attract and create the fans and supporters of the series. I'm not saying Lionheart won't have any fans, because for many people I suspect a solid, basic action RPG is just fine, but for experienced and seasoned RPG players, there is just nothing specific or significant Lionheart can provide. Despite the implementations of previously successful features like the SPECIAL, Lionheart seems to be a product of hype, and while the basic elements have lived up to it, the more important elements have not.


Oh, I'd say there's lots of things that set Lionheart apart from the rest of RPGdom.
