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 game received a mediocre critical reception, but has gained more acclaim in the years after its release.
The main feature of Lionheart: Legacy Of The Crusader is the detailed and intricate character creation system. The system itself is reasonably similar to the one utilised by the more renowned Fallout series. Also in the game there is a detailed dialogue and conversation system, which is vital for the game's story and the player's advancement into the later stages. Lionheart: Legacy Of The Crusader is also equipped with a diverse voice-acting cast and a well-put together soundtrack.
In the decade since its release, Lionheart: Legacy Of The Crusader is now fondly looked back on by RPG fans as one of the most overlooked and underrated games of its genre. It is considered by many to be very similar to the more successful Fallout series, and is often referred to as the 'Medieval version of Fallout'. Due to its poor sales return, a sequel was never made.
