You look at a list of new PC releases. The list is populated by arcane words and you sense strong magic at work behind the somehow familiar titles. To your surprise, the list asks you in an inaudible voice, "Do you like tactical battles with large fantasy armies, but don't know The Art of War and The Book of Five Rings by heart?" Curious, you answer "Yes."

The strange list then asks you another question. "Do you like to go on text adventures while a single narrator reads the stories out loud, using different voices to mimic different characters?" Amused, you answer "Yes."

"Then come play with me, my Lord," the list beckons. You install King Arthur II - The Role-playing Wargame. More than 25 hours later, you leave your computer wondering if you've received a buff or a penalty.

Review: King Arthur: Fallen Champions
by Joshua Derocher

King Arthur: The Roleplaying Wargame was a really fun and interesting hybrid real-time strategy/turn-based strategy/role-playing game. It pulled a lot of good elements from these genres and it felt unique and it really stood out, but it did have some flaws: The AI was awful, combat was boring, and moving units around felt loose and sluggish. Sadly, this expansion is made up almost solely of mechanics that showcase the games weakest points.
