Critic Reviews for Pendragon

An accessible strategy game tied to a powerful, dynamic story generator.

A new classic of narrative and strategy, and a game with plenty of space for the player to enjoy themselves.

Pendragon is a fascinating but flawed experiment in procedural narrative.

Pendragon is a great introduction to the strategy genre and is easy to pick up and play without the fear of being overwhelmed by menus and options. Multiple characters, dialogue options and areas ensure no two playthroughs will be the same.

Pendragon wants to help you tell a story of the last days of King Arthur, and how much that idea appeals to you is exactly how much you'll like it. Not every story works, but not every story has to.

I’ve played Pendragon dozens of times. I’ve unlocked most of the characters (I still can’t see to get Branwen the archer to trust me) and I know there are stories I haven’t pursued to their conclusions (Excalibur is out there, and I will find it). So rather than a traditional RPG or strategy game, Pendragon plays like an impressionistic take on a classic Nintendo formula. You’ll tell your own stories and if you play them right, the dream of Camelot will live on.

Pendragon is a game of both strategy and story, offering a different kind of gameplay experience while digging into historical mythos.
