Spirit of Excalibur is game with some mixed elements, at the start you can adventure with some of your characters and you can increase their statistics in combat and later on you can command your armies against evil forces. The game is based on Arthurian legend and it begins right after King Arthur died in battle against the evil Mordred. With his dying breath Arthur has made Constantine the successor to the throne but many knights of the round table do not agree with this and as such Camelot is now in disarray. You must travel throughout the land and gather forces so that you can combat the evil that is once again threatening the country.

You start alone as Constantine as he is concluding a negotiation and he must travel back to Camelot, along the way you will meet citizens and not all of them will be friendly. Some of them will give you advise and other will ask for your help. These events are played out on a 2D screen showing the characters in question. What you do here will affect people's loyalties to you as when you help them they are likely to pledge their help to you in return. Later on you are joined by a knight of the round table who will escort you to Camelot and you can also have him fight battles as well. After you reach Camelot things will start to get more complicated as you must send some of your knights throughout the land to stop invading armies and to gather more allies. You have to negotiate, bribe and use magic at times to convince as many people as you can to join your cause. These travels are shown on a large overhead map where you can click towns and castles where you can then travel to. The ultimate goal is to defeat evil once again become the rightful ruler of England.

Spirit of Excalibur is a bit of a mixed game with many different elements like roleplaying and strategy. However some of these parts like the conversations can be rather slow going and the action sequences can be a bit short. However combined I believe they form a game that's not bad to play if you can put up with the pace of it all. There was also a sequel made which means there must have been enough interest in the game to make one. I enjoyed the game but this is one of those games where personal preference really comes in so check it out for yourself.
