In a fairy-tale world, Once Upon a Knight could be recommended for offering two games in one box, but in reality, neither is very good. The story missions may take quite some time to play through, but there's little to motivate you to do so. And even the skirmish mode, which you might expect to highlight the game's strategy strengths, is hobbled by poor AI. A single computer-controlled player isn't much of a challenge, and multiple CPU players will gang up on you without fighting each other. Furthermore, at this time, it's quite difficult to find anyone to play a multiplayer game with on the Earthnet matchmaking service. It's hard to find any part of the game that's truly entertaining.
