Legion: The Legend of Excalibur chronicles the adventures of a young King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table as they battle the villainous Morgan Le Fay and her army of undead warriors. An action title with a smattering of RPG elements, Legion enables players to choose and then control four of the most famous characters from Camelot lore at one time, each of whom can have up to four low-level warriors at their command. King Arthur, Lady Gwenevere, Merlin, and Lancelot are just some of the many characters that will appear across the game's 14 missions. Throughout which, you'll be required to complete primary and secondary objectives, such as smiting all the armies in a particular region or protecting a village or person. As each possesses unique abilities and attacks, choosing the right group of characters for the job at hand is vital.
Characters under your command can be ordered to patrol or guard certain areas, retreat or to follow you and attack any enemy units you may encounter. When engaged in combat, attacks and magic spells can be unleashed, the latter only if you have a capable magic wielder in the party. Melee combat is timing based, forcing players to string together a series of attacks with carefully timed button presses. Successfully doing so will see each subsequent strike increase in attack power. If equipped with a shield, your character can also parry attacks. And provided the character has enough stamina in reserve, special attacks can be unleashed on the unsuspecting foe.
Hidden throughout the missions are treasure chests that contain gold and rare items that can be equipped to party members. More common artifacts can be purchased from the in-game treasury. In fact, the game features more than 100 items, including rings, amulets, and legendary items unique to each character. Bonus features included in the game are a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the title and a story about the legend of King Arthur. ~ Gavin Frankle, All Game Guide
