Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
- Type: Action
- Available: 1991
- Difficulty: Average
With an arrow, history was made. Based on the movie starring Kevin Kostner as Robin Hood, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is a very interactive adventure game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The outlying story is the same. You are trapped in a Turkish prison, but you escape, only to find out that the Sheriff of Nottingham has taken control of the countryside in King Richard's absence.
I saw the movie and the best thing in it was the king and he only occupied thirty seconds of film. This game left me with an equally unsatisfied feeling, not because there was anything wrong with what I was supposed to be doing, after awhile I just realized it wasn't much fun.
Not much of an action game but it isn't supposed to be. As a quest game it will make you think and more games should be made this way. Graphics are OK but not exceptional. The quest is about the right length and rather straightforward. No real tough spots to stump the player.
The game is pretty cool in that it tries to take a variety of game play concepts and blend them with the Robin Hood theme. It's more of an RPG than an action game. The fighting scenes are very slow and have lots of flicker. I didn't see the movie, but as a game Robin Hood isn't great.
Cool! If you liked the movie, you'll love this adventure! Taken directly from the movie template, Robin Hood makes a you feel like you are actually playing the movie by following the action scene by scene! In others words, it's a tremendous translation to the home entertainment screen.

With An Arrow...
History was made. Based on the movie starring Kevin Kostner as Robin Hood, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is a very interactive adventure game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The outlying story is the same: you are trapped in a Turkish prison, but you escape, only to find out that the evil Sheriff has taking control of the countryside during the King's absence in the Crusades. Your true love, Marian, is only too happy to see you, but the Sheriff is not. His men are ordered to kill you on sight. The game itself begins in the Turkish prison, but it moves to the forest after a series of close up- and distant-view fights. Gain experience by laying waste to the land and stealing from the rich. The final battle will decide your fate!
