A- from Just Adventure

An Age of Magic....A Destiny Fulfilled....

The Legend lives on…. and comes alive in an extraordinarily realistic 3D adventure! Remember when honor was worth dying for? Return to the Arthurian world of chivalrous deeds and treacherous hearts.

After defeating his felonious half-brother Morganor, Bradwen, the illegitimate son of the King of the Atrebates, returns home to claim the throne. No sooner does he place the crown upon his head, than he discovers that he has been cursed as generations before him, the result of an ancient crime. Bradwen returns to the lands of Arden and Avalon to discover the tasks necessary to undo the curse and return peace to his people. Help Bradwen face the mighty ogre, the wrath of the fairies, outwit the devil and battle St. George’s Dragon to resolve the crimes of the past into a new beginning.

This is the world of Bradwen, the Paladin Knight and Bredwen the Celtic Knight. One man, two lives, with two paths he must travel.

Enter this epic tale as a Knight of King Arthur of Britain... an adventure you'll not soon forget.

Reviews:

Just Adventure by Tom Houston

"Whether you consider Arthur's Knights: The Secret Of Merlin to be a second chapter, a sequel or a continuation of the story and events presented by its predecessor, Arthur's Knights: Tales of Chivalry, it is my opinion that the player will benefit greatly by having played these games in sequence. There is a historical trail of events and enough references to past interchanges with characters from the first game that leads me to recommend that those interested in Arthur's Knights start by playing Tales of Chivalry first and then continuing with this sequel later."

"A Bumpy Road and Saddle Sores Await: As in the first Arthur's Knights, you will be given the choice of playing the game as Bradwen, the Celtic warrior, who is guided by his druid beliefs or Bradwen, the Paladin, with traditions and Christian faith taken from the Romans. What is offered in Arthur's Knights: The Secret of Merlin is two games in one and both games are long, so you should plan on spending many days, if not weeks, enjoying this fascinating adventure through the real and imaginary worlds of 6th century Briton."

"The game had some particularly interesting villains who were presented with some of the best voice acting that I can remember. For instance, the Devil's voice was very smooth and soothing to the point that resistance would seem difficult. Morgan, the Mother Goddess of the fairies, sounded just the way a temptress would sound when she was expressing her desires…only to turn threatening, when rebuked. But, the best is reserved for the voice of the Horned Snake, who gave a sinister performance by incorporating "hissing" sounds into his speech."

"The characters are fascinating and the melding of different worlds (fairies and mankind) against a backdrop of the Dark Ages of Briton always provided a terrific story line that will cause you to eagerly look forward to your next challenge and anticipate where the adventure will lead. I would particularly recommend the Arthur's Knights games, especially Arthur's Knights: The Secret of Merlin, which I enjoyed a bit more than Tales of Chivalry, to anyone who enjoys adventure games with a historical base."
