Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader, another RPG for the netbook

Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader, another RPG for the netbook

I just picked this game up from GOG. This is a decent RPG from Interplay & Black Isle, released back in 2003. I actually played it for some time back when it was released, it was quite hard as I remember, however I lost the CDs so I never finished the game.

I think the game is a little raw... as if it was rushed to production, maybe due to Interplay's impending collapse? But the character building and concepts are fun, and it uses the SPECIAL system from the Fallout series.

Anyhow, this isn't a review, just a verification that the game works on the 8.9" Aspire One AOA-150, which it does... it runs quite nicely actually. In the video you can see FRAPs running in the 20 FPS range while recording, that means you'll see roughly double that when not recording.

As you can see, the game play is smooth, there's only one resolution, 800x600, and there doesn't seem to be any way to change it, editing the lionheart.cfg file manually corrupts the graphics. However the game looks and runs fine at 800x600.

The game is attractive, has great voice acting and music, so for $5.99, I'm sure it'll make a decent addition to my netbook games collection.

Looks like you're an retro gamer like me, was looking at your other articles in the gamig section, I myself am doing a C&C "marathon" just digged out all my oldies, running nicely on my aspire 5536.

I do love the classics... Diablo I & II, Fallout 1 & 2, C&C is another good series. I still play some newer games too, like Fallout 3, Company of Heroes, etc.

BTW, you were right, Windows 7 is actually a very nice OS, I'm loving it so far.

Damn, screwed up commenting the last couple days, just noticed it now, should be fixed... heh...

nice game
