It is 1588 A.D., a critical year of an alternate history hauntingly familiar yet fantastically alien to our own. Because of one fateful event during the Third Crusade, the history of this world diverged. This event, the Disjunction, ripped open a long-sealed breach to other worlds. Magic energy and powerful spirits flowed into the world, changing the lands and the people forever. For those who could comprehend the nature of these new forces, the introduction of magic brought great power. 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. This widespread disparity, continued suspicion of wizards and witches and all things magical, and the constant threat from all manner of beasts cast a shadow over civilization, stunting the Renaissance and keeping the people in an enduring Dark Age.

Cast into this world, you are a character of your own devices, strengths, and abilities. Set upon by human factions and powerful spirits, you must decide how to best develop your skills in order to triumph over obstacles that lie between you and your true fate.

Lionheart is a computer role playing game for the PC. In Lionheart you will create a single character and play through a story. During the course of the story your character will gain experience and power. Your character will meet many other people and creatures who will have information, quests, or who just want to fight you. It's possible that some of the other characters in the world will join with you in your adventures. Depending on the choices you make for your character, you will decide what he or she gets better at and how your character can best overcome the obstacles presented in the world.

Interesting new ideas.. This game has Diablo, Fallout Tactics, and a descent RPG element to it. Good interface, outdated but nice looking engine. Hate the idea that the character canot run and the way he/she moves. But the gameplay, storyline, and new intersting ideas really drive the game. I think it's worth playing and buying. I give it a B+P.S: There's a bug that can be exploited. Save before you open a chest, pop it open... Don't like what you got? Reload and open again. Repeat until you get really nice items. Takes time though. Hope they fix it in the final version.

Lionheart is an action-adventure with improved character skill system like a rpg, but it's not a true rpg.And yes, Lionheart can't be compared with the hack&slash Game Diablo...I think that the best thing on this game is the thematik of its scenario. And a little bit world "realism" about human useage of the arcane arts. I had this idea long ago before the game was mentioned... ;-)

[thanks to this system]For this situation, I degrade myself onto your level:Make it better, than the people of Black Isle. Otherwise you have not the right, with your unconscious gesture, to grun unqualified muck, Plebe.The only malus on the quality of this game, is the bad animation style for walking (worst case: and the outdated Engine).What do you want with your comment? All the people in the world need to know, that a coward without a nick, writes that the game sucks?

i think this demo is like a...demo(WOW!) of its beta stages...unless this game has already been released in the US, or europe- i dont give a damn about the northern hemisphere.so the screwed up animation and the glitchy music will most likely be corrected. black isle and whoever else contributed to the making of this game would and should notice this little error coz they did it right for their other games

Bad luck, you never will see a sequel to Fallout 2.Buy Lionheart, and maybe you get the chance of Fallout 3.The Developer need the money to make a sequel.Thematic is good, but the engine is outdated, unfortunately arranged inteface, bad animation style, ridiculous graphics of player characters... but a nice story.I will buy it. But before I will do this possible failure, I watch what the press say about it.
