L’Apple II GS avait sans nul doute les moyens d’aller rivaliser avec les meilleures versions 16-bits, mais ce portage de Defender of the Crown affiche quelques lacunes étranges (réalisation proche de la version Amiga, mais amputées de certains aspects comme de certaines musiques, interface de la version ST mais avec le système de jeu de la version PC). Le jeu reste très agréable à jouer, mais on lui préfèrera volontiers la version Atari ST.
Graphically superb, this medieval simulation of the Norman-Saxon reunification of England is a series of arcade sequences loosely strung together. With sword duels, tournaments and sieges, the major elements are present; it is just that the simulation resembles a series of arcade trials held together by story boards.
