    Robin Hood
    Die Legende von Sherwood

    England im Jahre 1190, Richard Löwenherz sitzt in Gefangenschaft, während sein Bruder Prinz John Lackland mit eiserner Hand über die einfachen Bauern regiert. Ihre begrenzten kämpferischen Mittel zwingen sie dazu, der Befehlsgewalt nachzugeben.

    Nur ein Mann nimmt den Kampf gegen die Unterdrücker auf und wird dabei von einer kleinen Gruppe tapferer und treuer Gefährten unterstützt. Sein Name ist Robin Hood.

    Übernimm die Rolle des legendären Robin Hood: Hilf König Richard seinen Thron zurück zu erlangen, bekämpfe Prinz John, den Sheriff von Nottingham und seine Feinde!

    • Lebe die Legende indem Du Dich durch ausgewählte Missionen kämpfst.
    • Mehr als 30 nichtlineare Missionen in denen Du Little John und Bruder Tuck retten kannst, eine Heirat Mariannes mit dem abscheulichen Guy von Gisbourne verbinderst und die Steuereintreiber des Sheriffs von Nottingham überfällst.
    • Besuche fünf gigantische Burgen auf unterschiedlichen Wegen, bei Tag und Nacht und unterschiedlichen Wetterverhältnissen.
    • Speile mit bis zu neun integrierten Charakteren, die sich durch spezifische Fähigkeiten und Eigenschaften auszeichnen.
    • Ein innovatives Kampfsystem: Interagiere mit der Maus um spezielle kämpferische Fähigkeiten zu erlangen.
    • Am Ende hängt der Sieg von der jeweiligen Taktik ab: Wähle zwischen dem heimlichen Zugang in eine Burg und vermeide von den Wächtern gesehen zu werden oder kämpfe tapfer mit Schwert und Bogen.
