Gameguru Lionheart review

Gameguru Mania have published their review of Reflexive's valiant RPG swing-and-a-miss, Lionheart. It scored a mediocre 66%.

You will start off in Northern Spain in the city of Nueva Barcelona, and go up through France and beyond. There are many areas to explore, including Inquisition Chambers, Mongol Camps and caverns controlled by Lycanthropes. The first half of the game takes place in Nueva Barcelona in which you can take on numerous side quests and meet many NPCs. It's somewhat reminiscent of Baldur's Gate 2. After questing in Nueva Barcelona for several hours, you are sent off on an important quest. Since you left the town, Lionheart shifts from a Baldur's Gate-type game into pure click-based hack-n-slash Diablo type game. So, If you are looking for an arcade style hack and slash game, that is easy to get into.

I have to admit I have mixed feelings about this game. Lionheart combines elements of Diablo with an actual story-line. There are some nice things and some very irritating things as well. I'd say this game had a lot of potential but in my opinion fell short of a great game.


I like to blame Herve Caen. It's easier.
