Started playing and might have continued had it not been for confounded Merlin. The narration is way too slow. If it was all written out, you could at least read it quickly and move on, but the way it's done is so annoying. I wish more game makers would clue in that not everyone likes voices in their games and at least have an option to mute them. Especially the fake British accents.

This game surely did my head in. The Arthur Legend is so great and so full of potential and I can't understand how a bunch of devs can manage to mess it up in such a grand style.
I was so disappointed. Merlins voice sounds awful after a while you just want to stick a sock in his gob. I skipped most of the narrative because of that.
Then this 'find a black sword'...'find a grey sword'...Where they colourblind???

On a plus-note: I'd recommend it somebody who I don't like without a shadow of a doubt

What's the source of the poem in the Epilogue? A credit would have been nice, eh?

Very disappointed in this game...was very hopeful

The negative started immediately with the scrolling and words so slow that you could do your wash while waiting. Very irritating when you only have 60 minutes to test drive and Merlin is drolling on and on and .on. I tried to skip over him but then he restarted. Eeepers.
Finally he went away to leave me with finding his staff ( in pieces) which wasn't hard because the flickering lights around the pieces...but then he wanted more and more found to the point you're about to throw everything at him and tell him to find his own staff!
Obviously I never got out of the first scene, which is a shame. I'm sure there is a lot to offer in this game but I'll never see it. Decent graphics, items much too small and when you find one, of course another object pops in the list.
A no buy for me. Sorry.
Chris

Too Slow--Too much talking. Also, every time I tried to get a hint or a "drawing"
etc. the message came up by the "guy" which covered up the items and therefore
I could not even click on them! Do Not Like this one at all.. MacS

Awesome game!,.... especially on fearless mode, were there are no sparkles and ZERO hints throughout the entire game and get a high score too. I love games that challenge the gray matter. On casual mode, the game is prety easy, but then all games for me are prety easy. These games aren't Oblivion, Two Worlds, Dragon Age, Mount & Blade, Baldur's Gate, etc. Now those are true huge games with the ultimate challenges. Big Fish games are for the casual and less expeienced players of the world. Great little games nonetheless, and ones you can finish in a few hours, unlike the huge games that take 6 to 8 months, playing 8 hours a day to complete. Thanks for this great game BF!

I liked this game. Merlin's voice acting is good, the others not so much but you can click thru if you don't want to listen. The hint system in Casual is generous, if you run out you just click on a bunch of glowing runes in each scene to recharge. I only had trouble finding things a couple of times, unlike some games they are not unfairly hidden or impossible to see. The puzzles are good, there were even a couple I hadn't seen before which is always pleasant, but not so hard I had to skip.

The people who complain about graphics quality must be using older computers or monitors because I have vision problems and it was fine for me. I do find that playing in windowed mode gives sharper resolution.

This game was so-so I found everything easily and the ones that most could not find are hidden along the walls. I don't like all the talking, the story is not interesting at all to me. I got thru 27 minutes of the demo, maybe it will pick up later. I left off in Chapter 2. Probably won't buy.

Has there been up dates or revisions for this game? I love Kimg Arthur and swords and dragons type movies. I really love this idea for a game. I am dissapointed I was unable to get through the dialogue before it shut down. Reastarting did not help.

I liked the idea of a King Arthur game. However, the hint system is very tedious (collecting runes for hints), and you can't do that in the first few screens. Oddly enough, the objects in later scenes where you do have hints are much easier to find than the first two screens.

I don't think I could stand to play the whole game having to search for hint runes AND hidden objects. It's just too annoying. The dialog moves VERY slowly; I mostly don't listen to the sound or voices, so I can move through more quickly.

I'm on the fence on this one -- maybe with a free game credit, I'm not sure.

Eh. This is a decent game, but nothing spectacular. It played smoothly enough, and I love the King Arthur theme. I enjoyed the mix of mini-games throughout, and the hint system was clever. However, the characters were over-simplified, the graphics mediocre, and the hidden objects very repetitive. I don't like finding the same spider, snake, and cockroach in every other scene.

Someone else mentioned the poem, and I'd also love to know the credit for the poem at the end. It was beautiful.

After reading so many bad reviews i was ready to not even try this game. But I do like to make up my own mind. I thought it was a fine little game. Kinda easy but fun. I think since it is a DD I'll get it. Not sure if I'd have paid full price but willing to pay $2.99.
