Ships Ahoy: Lionheart

Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader Ships to Retail (thanks Frans) is the press release with word that this SPECIAL-system alternate-reality RPG from Reflexive and Black Isle is shipping to stores. Here's a bit:
In the game, players can control the entire party themselves or join forces with up to four gamers for mission-based cooperative multi-play. As they progress through the realm of Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader, players will be able to arm themselves with hundreds of melee weapons and 60 devastating spell attacks as they attempt to turn the tide against a savage onslaught of otherworldly creatures. Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader also features the SPECIAL RPG system for character advancement previously found in the Fallout® series of PC games.

From the slashdot article:

The questing and dialogue is very good for CRPG standards, but so far -- I've only played for a day -- ... no PS:T

The game definately isn't a Planescape: Torment but is still very fun. I'd recommend it to any CRPG fan, but it isn't quite good enough to recommend to any gamer.

I've played all Infinty Engine games and hoped this would be as good. It is not. Read this for a summary of things that are just plain wrong with the game.

Edit "lionheart.cfg"

[Options]
Screen Width=800
Screen Height=600


There are some bugs if you play in f.ex 1024x768, but you can press "f2" to remove the 'drawn hud' (which is "locked" at 800x600) and you will be able to see a lot more of the game-area (1024 res..) Although some graphic bugs may appear during movement... not perfect, but it works

I listen to gamespot reviews... I consider them to be one of the standards like Avault and gamespy. Id say I agree with their ratings about 90% of the time... It doesnt mean I like the website itself, or that I agree with their business philosophies

Who listens to gamespot reviews anyways? That's almost as bad as listening to IGN reviews.

Certainly not the best CRPG ever made but Lionheart is good fun. I think I would have rated it a little higher than the gamespot review probably in the high sevens. The gamespot reviewer made numerous erroneus statements about the game (i.e. no way to see how much damage you are doing to an enemy) so I don't give too much merit to the review.

I haven't gotten that far yet but so far I've had a blast. It's no Fallout or Planescape:Torment but it'll tide me over until Fallout 3.

I too am victim to the companion bug.

**TIP TO ANYBODY WITH THIS GAME**
If you have companions, DO NOT go into the dungeon from the thieves guild in the sewers.

BUGGY POS ! I have a quick save game that whenver I load crashes to the desktop thanks to the 'companion' bug. The graphics look like they were grated with a grater although the static background art is nice.
Being stuck in 800x600 in 2003 just sin't acceptable

Yeah, I figured I'd missed the "Ships Ahoy" announcement here.....ive had in since last Friday....this game hasnt really hooked me yet, I have no problem walking away from it. This game feels WAY too combat oriented...like a Diablo RPG bastard child....and the spells...read though the ice spells tree...they used every synonym for "icicle" known to man. Hmm, do i want to cast a "javilin" of ice of a "missile" of ice....or just a regualar "icicle"...

The stupid part is, that "Ricochet" demo included on the cd....yeah, i went thought the entire 2 hours of demo time before i even fired lionheart up

Aye, Frans is a little behind on this one

I played about 10 hours straight of it and had a damn fun time, until I realized at a point that my stealth archer was going to seriously get his ass kicked (there's a lot of situations where you can't help but fight) so now I'm planning to start over, probably with a full-on mage type (I play the dumb barbarian way too often). Very much enjoyed what I played tho.

I've had lionheart for like a week now... it came out on the 13th... first 65% = best game ever, last 35% = worst game ever... dissapointing.

It's markedly better, but still not very good. GameSpot review and score of 6.5 is pretty much on the mark. Might be a good RPG to pass the time till ToEE, though.

I'm really interested to see if the retail version will be markedly better than the demo that was put out for the game.
