Summary

An RPG that does have a small touch of flaws

The Good

The originality and creativity for Unce upon a knight is seems kind of average for an age of empires clone. The game developers decided to allow characters from the game to "equip" items, in order for the players to keep on searching around every corner for the best weapon or armour there is. The game has 5 modes to select from, campaign, RPG, duel,multiplayer (online) and level editor as well.

The Bad

The only problem here is that the game is ridiculously generous to the player. The player can keep on gaining exp points from killing the generic wolf. That and the fact that it just doesn't play as well as AoE, as there aren't that many options of gameplay making Unce upon a knight, again, a very average game.

The Bottom Line

Though the game does possess quite a few flaws, the graphics are god, the music(only in the demo) is great to listen to and if you like the common RPG/RTS type of game, then this game will suit you very well!
