King Arthur: Knight's Tale is a strategy RPG that gets the fantasy of playing as a heavily armored knight exactly right, but it would've been a better game if it didn't pad itself out with so many repetitive battles.

King Arthur: Knight's Tale is not without its charms, then, but it's not the once and future king you might have been waiting for. Maybe watch Fast and Furious instead.

A solid tactical rpg that offers many satisfying turn-based combats and a fascinating dark fantasy re-imagining of the Arthurian myth.

Aside a few complaints here and there, King Arthur: Knight's Tale is a grim, compelling take on the legend of Camelot.

Despite a few shortcomings, King Arthur: Knight's Tale is one of the best strategy RPGs I've played. While the SRPG aspects are pretty great, this alternate take on the Arthurian Tale can keep you engaged with its characters and stories.

Playing the NeocoreGames title, we had mixed feelings. If from a tactical and managerial point of view the product can offer a demanding challenge even for the most demanding players, some choices in the game mechanics appear not entirely in focus.

King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is solid point-and-click turn-based action, but players should note that it takes some time to level up due to the lack of a mission replay feature, and a considerable amount of gold being required to enable healing for multiple party members. Diehard tactical fans might be interested in what King Arthur: Knight's Tale has to offer, but newcomers to the genre might wish to cut their teeth elsewhere.

Regardless of your King Arthur fandom, Knights Tale is a feast with meaty tactics, a sumptuous story, and luscious visuals, all fit for a king.

Bloated, buggy and with its best ideas in the back half, Neocore's grimdark tactical King Arthur spin-off is halfway decent might and magic.

Neocore's rendition of the Arthurian tale is dark and gritty, and isn't for the feint of heart. It's tough, it's challenging, it doesn't hold your hand, but damnit if victory doesn't feel oh so sweet! Without a doubt, King Arthur: Knight's Tale is a day one buy for anyone who enjoys strategic, tactical combat that goes far beyond the decisions you make on the battlefield.

After being repeated dozens of times in different ways, do you need to yet another King Arthur tale? Well, the game brings its dark view of this classic tale and makes of it a solid base for building its twisted world. The game is aimed primarily at fans of strategy games, its battles do pose a reasonable challenge, and there is a bit of exploration and a lot of micro-management. Repetition is an issue though, and storytelling isn't as satisfying as we would've liked. We can say it's a really good game but not everyone will like it.

A game that looks promising but fails to deliver on its promises. You may give it a chance if necessary improvements are made in the future, but I suggest you to wait a bit more if you don't want to be disappointed.

King Arthur: Knight’s Tale boasts a deep and engaging combat system that is as rewarding as it is ruthless. A worthwhile adventure into Arthurian Legend, it’s a fantastic entry into the tactical RPG space that unfortunately begins to suffer with technical issues as the story unfolds. As many of the cutscenes tell you, it’s a work in progress.

King Arthur is a stylish tactical RPG with a different view of a famous legend. It has some unique elements, but also shortcomings. A charm that gradually weakens and fades.

King Arthur: Knight's Tale is a great turn-based strategy game, but vastly more so for those well-versed in Arthurian legend. That said, even if you don't know much about the legend - or want to learn about it - this is a great game.

With its engaging combat and dark world that begs to be explored, King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is a treat for those who love RPGs they can sink their teeth into. It might not be the deepest in terms of mechanics or character development, but that just adds to its allure, keeping it relatively frictionless. It’s the fact that this is your journey that will really win you over though. Will you rule over Camelot as a tyrant, or try to bring peace to the land? It’s up to you. And there are many other important decisions to be made along the way.

King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is a clear departure from the King Arthur titles that Neocore Games is known for. It’s not just the new setting, but also the combat mechanics and the management aspect of your base of operations that makes the game very engaging.
