Lionheart presents a Europe where a breach in the space-time continuum has prolonged the Dark Ages and kept most areas under the sway of the Inquisition. The space-time breach, called the Disjunction, allowed magical energies and powerful daemons to enter Earth during the Third Crusade.

Lionheart players will create and develop a character in this alternate universe, and choose how to pursue their destiny. The RPG character system, converted from the Fallout rules, includes 30 skills, 40 perks, and 15 traits. Since the system is classless, players can modify their character however they choose, and advance as far as level sixty. Lionheart's world contains eight major areas, 80 levels, and a mixture of story and combat arenas. The random item generator allows players to keep discovering new weapons, armor, and charms. Fifty enemies, 30 spells, and a multiplayer system allowing four players to cooperate are also featured.

Alternative history fused with action and role-playing. Lionheart: Legacy Of The Crusader is a role-playing action game developed by Reflexive Entertainment and released in 2003. The game is set in Medieval Europe, specifically the 16th century, and contains an alternative history element allowing you to meet fictionalised versions of icons such as Shakespeare and Da Vinci.

The idea behind Lionheart, the new RPG from Black Isle Studios and Reflexive Entertainment, is a very good one: It takes factual Medieval history and turns it on its head. The premise: During the Crusades, holy relics were unwittingly used to unleash an evil upon the world. After this event, dubbed the 'Disjunction,' many creatures such as goblins and trolls sprang up to terrorize the countryside, and magic became all too real. Instead of religious heretics, the Spanish Inquisition now spends time hunting down those that practice illegal heretical magic, while the Knights Templar try to maintain order as most of Europe comes apart at the seams.

This quasi-realistic backstory is extremely well thought out, and the 16th century setting is fantastic for a role-playing game. Unfortunately, Lionheart takes this promising premise and uses it to make a game where combat is king, and plotlines few-and-far between.

The game uses the SPECIAL system that was used in the classic Fallout games. This is a 'classless' system that is perfect for gamers that like to have as much freedom as possible when creating their character (and you go it alone in Lionheart). You are not bound by any rigid class rules. If you want to cast fireball spells and wield a sword -- you can. However, this freedom only works if the game itself allows it, and Lionheart doesn't. The game's penchant for combat almost forces you to create a magic-using fighter type that can withstand the multitude of battles that are fought as the game progresses.

Lionheart can best be broken down into two sections: 'Barcelona' and 'after Barcelona.' The first half of the game takes place in this city, and here you'll tackle a lot of quests and meet many NPCs. It's somewhat reminiscent of Baldur's Gate 2 in this regard, except that you cannot 'fast travel' through the city. You are forced to walk back and forth from section to section which gets a tad tiresome. The auto-map is also a bit odd in that nothing is marked. You need to remember exactly where everything is.

The Barcelona portion is fun, if a bit cliché. A lot of the quests are of the 'go fetch me this item' or 'kill this person that I hate' variety. The game also does a poor job of convincing you why your character is doing all of this stuff, and worse, why some of the NPCs are so quick to entrust you to some of the more important quests. You are a stranger in this city, and yet every Tom, Dick, and Da Vinci wants your help in some matter or another.

The good part is that most of the quests can be approached from different angles. The game forces you to choose sides at every turn, and demanding players to make seemingly tough decisions makes for compelling gameplay.

But then it all falls apart.

After questing in Barcelona for several hours, you are sent off on an important quest by one of the major factions of the city (depending on with whom you align). It's at this point that Lionheart shifts from a Baldur's Gate-type game into a Diablo-type game. As you trek through wilderness and dungeons, you are assaulted by wave after wave of enemies. It becomes extremely tedious, and any of your skills that don't have anything to do with fighting get thrown out the window. Playing a stealthy thief or a mild-mannered character of any type is nearly impossible. This wouldn't be a huge issue if the game warned you beforehand, but if you create a character that is full of guile rather than muscle, he's a dead man walking after leaving Barcelona. Even trying to go through the game with a straight mage is difficult -- you simply need to be able to use a sword to play Lionheart.

Balance is another major issue, as many of the 'boss' characters (enemies at the end of an area or quest) are amazingly tough to kill. There are points where if you do not have a strong enough character to kill the end boss, you're more or less stuck.

Aesthetically, the game is all over the map. The voice acting is superb. You'll meet several NPCs in Barcelona that are full of things to say and all sound convincing, but the city itself is dead. There's almost no atmosphere whatsoever, aside from the occasional chirping bird and a voice track or two. There are stretches where there is literally no sound at all. There are also some audio issues; for example, when returning from the sewers you can still hear the drip noises while walking the streets of the city. The graphics look dated and the game is locked at an 800x600 screen resolution; the animations are a bit choppy, and while Barcelona looks nice, the dungeon crawl areas all start to look the same after a while. Even at the archaic resolution, however, the graphics aren't a distraction. If the rest of the game were more even, it wouldn't be an issue at all.

All of this begs the question: For whom is this game designed? Lionheart suffers from an identity crisis in that it doesn't know what it wants to be. Is it a deep role-playing game with a plot-twisting storyline or is it a Diablo hack-and-slash clone? Ultimately, it tries to be both, but doesn't succeed at being either. The potential for a great game is here in the foundation laid by the background story and the SPECIAL system, but Lionheart doesn't live up to that potential, and in the end is a missed opportunity.

Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader is an action role-playing game, developed for Microsoft Windows by Reflexive Entertainment, published by Black Isle Studios, distributed in Europe by Avalon Interactive and released in August 2003. The game is viewed from a 3/4 isometric camera angle. It focuses on a protagonist, controlled by the player, as he travels on a quest that constitutes the central focus of the game. The plot stipulates a rift in reality that drastically altered medieval history by allowing demons and other similar beings to enter the mortal realm. During the game, the protagonist encounters and interacts with numerous historical figures such as Joan of Arc, Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo Galilei who are represented as non-player characters.

Lionheart utilizes the SPECIAL role-playing system, which was first used in the Fallout series, and in this game functions primarily in adding points to specific skills in separate trees to strengthen a character's 'Spiritkind', which has a personality and nature chosen by the player at the start of the game.

Gameplay[edit]

As Lionheart implements the SPECIAL system, the character creation is similar to that of the Fallout series. Players begin by setting the values of their characters' strength, perception, endurance, charisma, intelligence, agility and luck, and selecting 'traits,' which alter a character's inherent abilities for either better or worse, for the duration of the game. In addition, the player must distribute points to 'skills' – abilities which a character uses to achieve various effects. One skill, 'diplomacy,' allows the player to talk their way out of situations gone awry, while another, 'sneak,' allows the player to move undetected by enemies. Unlike the Fallout series, Lionheart also allows the player to select magical skills – an example being 'discord,' which turns hostile enemies against one another.

Players also select 'perks' during the course of the game – abilities similar to traits, which affect a character's abilities in some form; for example, the ability 'Superior Senses' grants the player character a +1 bonus to his or her perception and +15 skill points in the 'find traps/secret doors' skill.

Another element newly introduced by Lionheart is the player's selection of a 'Spiritkind' for their character, which is done during the 'character generation' at the game's start. A 'Spiritkind' is a spirit, which is either demonic, elemental or bestial, that resides in the player character and occasionally rouses to explain happenings or gameplay mechanics, or advance the plot.

The character generated by the player is the only character a player has direct control over, and though characters will occasionally join a player's adventuring party, they are AI-controlled without exception.

Plot[edit]

Setting[edit]

Lionheart Legacy Of The Crusader Windows 10

Lionheart's historical chronology puts forth that Richard the Lionheart's massacre of 3000 prisoners at the Siege of Acre, during the Third Crusade, was used by a villainous character as fuel for a ritual which tore the fabric of reality. This resulted in magic invading the game's world from other dimensions. The game itself takes place during the 16th century, which, due to the alternate reality setting, has been ravaged by uncontrolled magic and demonic creatures.

During the course of the game, a villain seeks to fully and permanently open the dimensional rift which was only temporarily cracked during the Third Crusade, while the player character, who is a descendant of Richard the Lionheart, attempts to stop it.

Several famous historical personas appear during the course of the game, most of them residing or imprisoned in Barcelona: Miguel de Cervantes, William Shakespeare, Galileo Galilei, Niccolò Machiavelli, and Leonardo da Vinci. This is impossible in the real-world history, but it is implied that they are being kept alive by the spirits inhabiting their bodies or other magical means.

Lionheart received 'mixed' reviews according to the review aggregation website Metacritic.[1]GameSpot's Greg Kasavin noted that although Lionheart seems to promote diverse character creation, the significant focus on monster-infested areas 'all but forces you to play as some sort of combat-oriented character.'[5] The game was also criticised for its attempts at promoting 'Diablo-style,' hack-and-slash gameplay after a more dialogue-driven approach in the earlier stages of the game. IGN's Barry Brenesal wrote, 'the problem of deciding what kind of game it really wants to be, RPG or Diablo clone, is probably the most serious problem it's got.' He continued that Lionheart 'feels like a good game got lost somewhere en route, and ended up being pushed out the door with some basic features missing.'[8] RPGamer's Steven Bellotti assessed that the game 'starts out so promising,' but 'once you get out of Barcelona and into the wider world, [it] falls flat on its face.'[12]

Conversely the game was praised for both its musical score, which was described as 'excellent,' and voice-acting, which was exclaimed to be 'top-notch.'[8] The SPECIAL system-fueled character creation was called 'great.'[12]
