Follow the path of one of history's most legendary thieves in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Based on the 1991 Kevin Costner movie of the same name, you'll experience much of the movie's action firsthand. Expect such scenes relived as the jailbreak from Jerusalem, Robin's return home to Locksley Castle and his fight with Little John, who then joins him on his quest to free England from the Sheriff of Nottingham's ironfist rule. Other Merrymen recruited by Robin throughout the course of the game include Azeem, Duncan and Friar Tuck.
The game's focus is action, but it contains RPG and adventure elements. For instance, talking to characters moves the story along, you must equip weapons and armor, and you will earn experience points, resulting in more hit points. Most of the action features your control of the Merryman of your choice as you travel through each screen's bird's-eye view perspective.
The view changes at times, however, with two other types of battle scenes. In melee mode, countless enemies mob Robin and his companions as each fights valiantly. You control only one, but have the option to choose between them. The other unique fighting mode features one-on-one duels pitting Robin against the likes of the prison guard, Little John and the Sheriff. Defeating the Sheriff results in the game's end, Robin's wedding to the lovely Marian. ~ Christopher Michael Baker, All Game Guide
