From the Manufacturer

    In Robin Hood - The Legend of Sherwood you get to take part in one of the oldest and still most popular stories of all. Only a hair's breadth from the action, you share in all the excitement and adventures of your heroes: Robin Hood, Little John, Will Scarlet, Stutely the Owl, Friar Tuck and the lovely Lady Marian.

    You can penetrate the mighty walls of Nottingham Castle, York, Leicester, Derby and Lincoln, and attack heavily guarded convoys in Sherwood Forest. The Prince's lightly-armed guardsmen and heavily armored knights will challenge you to a duel on staircases lit by flaming torches. Or they might try and fool you with beer, hornets' nests or a well-aimed money-pouch. Whenever you want, you can go to the outlaws' camp and practice the basic and advanced game functions; whether hand-to-hand combat with swords or staffs, target practice with the bow or the skilful use of the many implements Robin's followers have at their disposal.

    Easy mouse control and a system of icons you can understand intuitively will aid both beginners and experts in getting into the game quickly and helping you towards your first successful results. Movements and battles can be controlled problem-free using the mouse. The Robin Hood - The Legend Of Sherwood battle system enables you to have exciting duels with swords, staffs and other typical mediaeval weapons. But in the end it is having the right tactics which decides on victory or defeat. Whether you sneak into a castle and avoid the sentries or whether you take the direct route with sword and bow, is up to you. For example you can use the reduced visibility during the hours of darkness to your advantage. Or you can deploy the numerous abilities and special objects your men have, in order to distract the Prince's henchmen. Or then again you could try to fight your way through to your goal using well-aimed bowshots and skillfully deployed weapons. A lot of different possibilities present themselves; you just need to use them wisely.

    • Three different mission types: Robbery and Infiltration, Castle Attack and Ambush
    • Non-linear campaign system with over 30 different missions.
    • Spectacular isometric graphics in realistic atmospheric conditions (day, night, fog, snow).
    • Realistic characters with specific abilities and attributes.
    • Become legendary outlaw Robin Hood, one of the Merry Men, or Maid Marion

4.0 out of 5 stars YALORH (yet another legend of robin hood) January 29, 2003
By A Customer
Platform for Display:PC
This is a really well done game for the PC that requires very little hi-performance hardware, yet looks beautiful and performs its functions with little or no lag on low speed pentiums. Some people on the various forums have reported system hangs and crashes. I have had only one 'hang' at the very end of the game, but it has not repeated after replaying the game twice. Of course, Robin Hood IS just a legend, so pinning the authors down on errors in the games history elements isn't really relevent, however they begin their manual with the 'real-life beginnings' of Robin Hood, which have some mistakes. They claim King Richard left his brother John in charge of England when he left for the crusades, he in fact made his brother John swear he would not even enter England until Richard returned. They have William Longchamp listed as Prince John's right-hand man, when he was the one King Richard left in charge of England to make sure John stayed out of England.
If you can get by the historical anomalies though, its a very entertaining game that can be very challenging, or very easy to play depending on the difficulty level selected. There are a number of artifacts to collect, and if you get them all, there is a surprise at the end of the game, but I won't spoil it here.
There are 17 missions in all, with 5 castle maps and 3 sherwood forest maps. It rewards the player for NOT killing enemies, but either knocking them out or going around them. Something unique in the world of PC games these days. There is not a lot of re-playability to this game, there are a finite number of artifacts and once you get through the missions they can become repetative (especially the sherwood forest missions), but the castle missions make up for them, the artwork is excellent even though you are limited to a 2D environment.
Overall this is a lot of fun to play, but has some limitations that can be frustrating at times, so I gave it 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Justice be Served - The Sneaky Way! November 25, 2002
By Abram B
Platform for Display:PC
Robin Hood is a one or more, tactical squad based game. You start the game as Robin who just returned from the war, expecting to find his land back. What he discovered was that his dad had died, and the Sheriff of Nottingham is running loose, taking advantage of the people right and left.
You start the game by yourself, but as the game progresses you'll get additional people in your group, like Will Scarlet, Friar Tuck, John, Maid Marian, etc. You then get to use them in each mission to accomplish each mission's objective.
If you've ever played Fallout Tactics or Commandos, you'll feel right at home here. It also has some RPG/Strategy element of Freedom Force as well. You get to use Stealth and Cunning with some fights as well, starting from archery to sword fightings. My favorite part is when I am standing on a rooftop and shoot arrows down at the Sheriff's people - really cool!
Overall, a five out of five. Try it out - you're not going to regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Too bad it is over... July 3, 2004
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
This is one of those games where in the end you wish it had just a few more levels.
This game is pretty unusual in its gameplay. At first, it just seems frustratingly difficult, but once you get through the first level and understand what this game is all about, it is very entertaining. The story of course is well known, so you won't be overly surprised in the end. However, I am very pleased with how the story is integrated.
Unfortunately, the game gets a bit repetitive, and I found myself wishing the game would force me to use different characters for different missions.
If I had to rate this game with a percentage like many magazines do, I would probably rate it somewhere around 85%. However, I did decide to give it 5 stars here. Not because the game is the best game I ever played, but because I want to give this game a 100% buy recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars YES! Now this is a Game! September 19, 2004
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is sure to become a classic!
Amazing "and award winning" gameplay, gorgeous graphics, and a fantastic setting make this game a must have!
The gameplay is very impressive, and it's functoionality peaked my eyebrow. The character animations are very nice.

The game is driven by point and click action with the mouse, which was done very nicely. A real work of gaming art. The storyline is wonderful and reignites the greenwood tales of old.
This game will be considered playable for decades!

It was released in 2002 and I just go it now in 2004! Two years old and I loved it! Plus It's on the brink of 2005 right now and I am still impressed with this game! It's style, graphics, and playability will make it hard to think of this game as outdated.

I was happily surprised at the low system requirements, which really makes this a perfect game for laptop/notebook computers without taxing their systems!
And look at the price! I mean, you just can't get games this good for the price! It's fun, it looks good, and you'll want more when it's done.
If your looking for a game to buy, get this game.
I hope Spellbound Studios makes more games just like this one!
The only thing I would like to see in a future game done like this is the ability to have add-on adventure/scenarios and a user creation scenario package. That would make this type of game all the more sweeter and really would be a perfect compliment to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars robin hood is back January 15, 2003
Platform for Display:PC
I saw an ad for this game and at first glance thought 'wow'. I have only played the demo but I am thirsty for more. The graphics may only be 2d but they are gorgeous to look at. The gameplay is superb. Each character has his/her own unique skills you can use to get through each mission. The replay value here is enormous, since there is no one way to finish a mission. I found myself replaying the demo until I was salivating. I will buy this game as soon as I can. I highly recommend this game to anyone who is a fan of squad based tactical games.
