About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

King Arthur is a turn-based empire-building strategy game set in a medieval, mystical Britain where you will play the role of legendary Arthur, the Once and Future King. You build Camelot, enlist the Knights of the Round Table, unite the country and ultimately challenge the powers threatening the essence of all their previous endeavors.

Players can join the Knights as one of five playable characters including Arthur, Lancelot, Guinevere, Tristan and Bors --- each with unique weapons and skills. Each of the game's heroes are also upgradeable with unlockable special moves and combos. King Arthur provides gamers with a dynamic fighting system, including sword fighting melee, archery and an innovative horseback combat system where players utilize their horse to get a leg up on the enemy. Players can battle it out on their own in single player mode or fight side by side with a friend in two-player co-op action.

"The tale of King Arthur has been one of the most well known and captivating legends throughout history," said Rob Goff, Product Manager for Konami Digital Entertainment - America. "Bringing this legend to life in an interactive world makes for an ideal video game experience. Now fans of the legend can discover firsthand what it's like to be a Knight of the Round Table and live out an epic adventure."

Based on the action feature film from producer Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Antoine Fuqua, King Arthur expands on the movie and allows players to experience the vivid scenery and intense battles like never before. Battle in photo-realistic environments with motion captured fighting sequences and watch seamless transitions from film to gameplay, as King Arthur beautifully re-creates the events of this legendary tale.

King Arthur is rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB and is available for the SRP of $39.99.
