Auch Ubi Soft hat sich in Sachen Grafik nicht lumpen lassen: Die stimmungsvollen Bilder ziehen sich durch das gesamte Programm, stets unterlegt mit tollen Fanfarenklängen. Welchem der vorgestellten Games man also den Vorzug geben mag, ist wohl eine Frage dessen, welche Thematik einem mehr am Herzen liegt. Wir sind jedenfalls heilfroh, nicht vor dieser Entscheidung zu stehen: Wir mögen uns von keinem der beiden mehr trennen!
Iron Lord is a very good game. It could have been a great game where it not for the confusing I/O device requirements and the fact that you can only save the game in one location. Despite these drawbacks, Iron Lord will remain in our active library as we forge ahead and try to defeat the Army of Chaos and that rotten uncle!

The pictures are all well drawn and the small animated window works fine. Some very nice touches include the horse galloping across the screen whenever you move from location to location. Well presented graphically and the sound effects complement it. Very nice. The arcade sub-games are no push over, so it will take a while to mater them. The overall game task is also large and becomes more convoluted the further you get into the game. This will keep you going for some little while. The arcade bits are tough and add variety while the main quest in the game is well thought out and entertaining. It does tend to get a little repetitive due to the smallness of the game area, but overall it is not half bad and can get quite involving.
Defender of the Crown strikes again' is one of the first thoughts you may have upon seeing Iron Lord. And indeed, some superb Cinemaware-style screens together with realistic sound effects, a mini-wargame, and maze game all bodes well. Interest falls away when you realise that there's little more than a dozen locations in the first level, and you begin to ask yourself, 'Is this all there is to it?'. The Amiga game gets away with infrequent disk swapping but there's still quite a lot of disk accessing.

Seit Ihr Vater vor vielen Jahren von Ihrem Onkel ermordet wurde, kennen Sie nur einen Gedanken: Rache! Sie waren damals drei Jahre alt, als die vom Onkel herbeigerufenen Monster-Horden das Schloß überfielen und alle Bewohner niedermetzelten. Nur ein enger Vertrauter Ihres Vaters konnte entkommen, mit Ihnen in den Armen. Jetzt sind Sie alt genug, um den Vater zu rächen.

Classique dans son scénario, simple à manier, joli, ce jeu est un bon titre, même s'il n'est pas aussi complet qu'un Fire King, un Sierra, ou qu'un Voyageurs du temps.

Un gioco in stile Defender of the Crown ben presentato che sembra un po’ schizoide.
