The DOS Spirit (Dec 05, 2008)
Spillets innhold og atmosfære gjør det til en gledelig utfordring selv om det ikke tester maskinvaren din som dagens utgivelser. Det er nok helt klart en bedre opplevelse på Amiga enn på PC, da det er merkbar forskjell på grafikk og ikke minst lyd og musikk. Denne klassikeren har overlevd siden 1987 og er nok et bevis på at 80-tallet har servert oss mange udødelige spillperler. Et must for alle strategifans, jeg skulle bare ønske at jeg fikk innsyn i nettopp denne perlen for 20 år siden!

The PC Defender is every bit as good as the original in terms of creating the illusion of participating in a film, but is not quite as playable as it is on the Commodore 64.

Classy medieval/arcade game, attractive in EGA, but it comes off quite badly in CGA mode. The lack of mouse control is a severe detriment to the action sequences which are left to joystick or cursor keys. Expensive and all...

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.
 
Mißt man die Srafikdes Programms an den Möglichkeiten des Rechners, so ist diese Version gut gelungen. Amiga-Grafiken darf man natürlich nicht erwarten.
