    The truth behind the legend.



    Well met, son of Uther Pendragon.

    Return to Camelot in the adventure King Arthur.

    Features

    • Five playable characters
    • Cooperative play
    • More than 20 levels
    • Unlockable content


    The story is based on the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced film that claims to portray the true story behind the legend of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur's passionate struggle between personal desire and sense of duty.

    Depending on the area of the game, you'll play as one of five characters from the film: Arthur, Lancelot, Tristan, Bors or Guinevere. Each of the game's heroes are also upgradeable with unlockable special moves and combos. You'll need all the combos you can muster as you go from melee combat to archery to battles on horseback.

    The photo-realistic environments were re-created directly from the film. Between levels, footage from the movie plays and then makes a nice transition from film to gameplay. In all, the game features more than 20 minutes of film content in addition to unlockable extras.

    Although the characters tend to move stiffly, the motion-captured fighting sequences are a nice touch. Battle Arena mode pits a blue team versus a red team (controlled by the CPU or another player) in a battle to the death. Smite all the underlings and then go after the team leader.

    Bottom Line

    Those who couldn't get enough of the movie can get their fill with this game.

    Summary

    Jerry Bruckheimer's big screen interpretation of the enduring Arthurian legend bursts onto PS2 in all its cinematic glory. Guide the fabled king himself (not to mention the beautiful Guinevere and several senior ranking Knights of the Round Table) through an epic quest that's littered with spectacular battles and seeped in medieval atmosphere.

    Details

    Although there's a healthy variety of mission types, combat has a big part to play in the legend; expect historic rumbles aplenty, both on foot and on horseback. Mount a trusted steed and have at the enemy with a selection of antique arms in epic battles, either alone or co-operatively with a friend.

    Five characters noble and true - Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Tristan, and Bors - are saddled up and raring to go, and all have their own distinct skill sets. As your quest unravels, you'll be able to develop these brave characters further by unlocking additional moves and combos.

    Footage from the action-packed film drives the story along, with almost seamless cuts into the game itself.

    Features

    • Five playable characters - Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Tristan, and Bors
