About

Award-winning Black Isle Studios unleashes an epic RPG like no other. In the 12th century, a supernatural catastrophe tore the fabric of reality, unleashing spirits and magic, forever changing medieval Earth. Cast into this world and besieged by spirits and power groups, you must gain allies, take up arms and find your destiny.

To the common folk, magic was something to be feared and undoubtedly the handiwork of evil demons. People across Europe sought protection from the forces of evil and therefore relinquished utter control of their lives to the Inquisition.

To this day, the Inquisition still governs most of civilized Europe, directly or indirectly. In their relentless hunt for heretical wizards and magical creatures the Inquisition inspires awe and faith among many, and is despised and feared by others.
Choose your champion – Feralkin, Sylvant, Demonkin, or Human Pureblood – and align yourself with the Knights Templar, the Inquisition, or the Wielders. Explore 16th century Europe, twisted and changed by magic, and encounter the likes of Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo.

  • An original story set in a warped alternative timeline
  • Meet historical characters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Gallileo and Shakespeare
  • One of the greatest, if often overlooked, RPGs of all time

So, dear reader, if you are interested in this old age, you either have advised it as you played similar games, or you decided to read my reviews. (or you are one of 15-20 grandfathers who have seen it in childhood) As though there was, I will try to maximally see this piece, its strengths and weaknesses and, probably, to convince you to give it a chance. So, let's start with the strongest sides: = = = = Sting, History and Plot. = = = = All You will know in the course of the game, do not want to spoiler anything, but to interest you, briefly describe what is here for the Ahineya occurs: During the Crusade, Richard the Lionheart fought with Salamin until he refused to pay Richard tribute. Richard consulted with his counselor, who turned out to be a cunning freak and, in general, a dishonest man, and tricked Richard into making a ritual called Schism, which in the world of people admitted magic, demons, spirits, giants, Adam Sandler and other Evil. Richard realized that things were bad and he was eating with Saladin to kill those critters and close the Rift. They achieved it, but the creatures managed to spread through the world. Different Spirits merged with people and changed their face-hence the race in the game. And Behold, the Inquisition, together with the Templars in Europe, is kept in check evil, but it is not calmer... Now-16th century and here on stage getting you, Child of the Lion Of the Heart. Plot, believe me, cool and nonlinear... = = = = RPG System and character creation = = = = As soon as you watch the cool start movie and click ' Start ' you'll get into creating the character. Here and the Characteristics of the Power and Agility, here and Skills Tipro Diplomacy and Evasion, and skills-giving pros and cons tion Accuracy-A greater chance of crit less damage. It looks like old phalaites, but there are two features that are unique to this game-Spirit. You are given a choice between three spirits, one of which is to merge with your body. Depending on your choice, you will not only get a bonus to one of the 3 branches of Magic (Divine, Shaman or Magic of Thought) but you will still get a companion for the whole game, which would always accompany you and occasionally chat with you. Personally, I advise the Demonic spirit for maximum lulzes. and Rasa. Man, Zoverlud, Demonoid or Silvant-races that differ in what magic in their veins and naturally-what they (except Human) racial trait. Scales, Forked tongue, Volchya skin or Cloak of shadows-each trait gives you an interesting bonus but there is also a reverse side of the coin-people are afraid of magic and lepers, and you will be treated badly and gnahit constantly-opening and closing different paths in quests. Here we come to Conversations. = = = = Dialogs = = = = = Dialog part is super. A Lot of text (several important characters are still voiced, however, it is better to play the localization as it is much better than the original and by the way, I have a guide with reference to the Russifier), a lot of answers that depend on skill, race, faction, Characteristics and devices of the psyche. An Example of dialogues-again on my profile. Cool, huh? Do Not hurry to buy it and read more: = = = = Bovka and Complexity = = = = Here Of course you can solve a lot of executions peacefully, but here to soak the oil and undead you still have to. Here skills are full, spells, potions, luta, armor and debris that will give you advantage in battle. Pump and create your character wisely because!!! THE GAME IS VERY DIFFICULT. !!! You have to get acquainted with the mechanics of the game, choose your opinion the best way to pump, suck at Titans and Ogrov and try again. You will have to break through HORDES of enemies, often without healing potions so think how to do without them (magic, objects, racial traits). You'll have to die. Sometimes There's such a blow-start that you just want to. But after the crowds of enemies, you have time to get a pleasant respite and again a few very interesting quests and gradually learn more about the world. In These moments the game shines. At The end remained satisfied at least by the fact that he was able to simply pass this horror, although still pleased with the ending. Yes, there are a few:) Totals In General, Lionheart is a very worthy RPG which the sadists did. You Love hardcore, Oldschool RPG-It's for you, darling. Especially you will like it if you are fond of history, mythology (Christian and not only) and mysticism. Personally for me, the strongest side of the game is the sattting. So, look yourself, maybe you will like it...
