Wars and Warriors: Joan of Arc
(hx) 08:55 PM CET - Mar,13 2004

Wars and Warriors: Joan of Arc is an action game that combines first- and third-person combat, real-time strategy, and role-playing elements. The game takes place during the Hundred-Years War between France and England. Joan starts off her military career with a lot to prove. Being a woman in this era, it was unheard of that a female would lead her men to battle...Just incase you never took basic European history, Joan of Arc was a 19 year girl who accomplished what many men older and wiser couldn't. France was on the brink of collapse when she emerged into history. Half of the country was occupied by the savage English troops under the Kings Edward V and Edward VI. They took advantage of the civil war that ravaged France. The Burgundians were allied to England and against the dauphin. The city of Orleans was the last bastion to hold the English from taking the other half of France and was under siege for 8 months when Joan arrived on at Orleans. Joans confidence in God and her voices of Saints helped achieve the impossible. She lifted the siege of Orleans, defeated other English forces and paved the way for Charles of Ponthieu, to become King Charles VII. In the end however, she was caught and sold the Burgundians to the English, and burned at the stake.

Fortunately, you don't need to know anything about Joan of Arc or her history to play and enjoy this game. Joan of Arc is primarily action-based, with real-time and lite role-playing elements. The game is played through a third person perspective and you control Joan and a few other commanders, including her real life companion Jean de Metz, leading troops into battle against English. Joan of Arc employs a simple combat system consisting of light and heavy combination attacks. You have two main attack types - a standard attack and a power attack that uses stamina. You can pull off various attacks by doing power attacks during a standard combo. Aside from the use of a sword, you can fire (from a fixed first person perspective) arrows from your bow. There will also be a few times when you will be riding on a horse. There really isn’t much to say regarding the real time strategy portion of the game, because basically there's nothing special. The RTS aspects are action oriented - there is no building of buildings or gathering of resources. You simply command your units (including bowman, swordsman and others). Switching to the RTS mode on the fly (by pressing the F2 key) lets you rally your troops and control them so that you can effectively take down the enemy army. Sadly, the poor path-finding abilities of your troops makes maneuvering in the RTS portions very frustrating. There are also RPG elements, such as character-building, where you can enhance their character's attributes and combos through experience points. Each time you level up you are given a few points to increase certain areas such as Strength, Defense, Dexterity and Leadership. Each level can be quite long with several different goals. After a while, this may become somewhat repetitive. Adding to the RPG feel is a slot-based inventory system, where you store weapons and items you lift from fallen enemies, buy from shops, or take from crates you smash, Diablo style.

In the end, Wars & Warriors: Joan of Arc has a few things going for it: arcade-style hack-and-slash action, 8 huge levels, RPG elements and fairly nice music. However, these features aren't enough to overcome the game's weak AI, frustrating camera and other flaws. In an era of superior-quality games, Wars & Warriors: Joan of Arc is a tough game to recommend. Of course, feel free to download and try this playable demo (325MB).

Horrible horrible game gave my thoughts on it ages ago.

xxxxposted - Mar, 14 2004 - 05:17
This game isn't bad. i think the sword fighting is kinda fun. it's an arcady game and the graphics aren't bad either. if ya aren't looking for a complicated game but looks nice, this game is pretty cool especially after you play it a few hours.

daddyposted - Mar, 14 2004 - 06:21
*yawn* HX, i think you've gone soft on us man... it's time you played some hardcore FPS again.

stumpusposted - Mar, 14 2004 - 18:17
Wow! did Joan of Arc *really* have flashy blue light trails when she swung her sword, Hundred-years war my butt! Rome:Total War -as usual- will show how it **should** be done.

xxxxposted - Mar, 15 2004 - 03:32
it's a game. duh. =)

stumpusposted - Mar, 15 2004 - 16:09
Comments from xxxx - it's a game. duh. =) Yes well i kinda *knew* that xxxx, but since it's *trying* to be historicaly correct by linking it's self to QUOTE: "The hundred-years war" Un-QUOTE, why the hell does it need flashy lightsaber effects then? Did Medieval: Total War do this when it linked it's self to the crusades? Nope, exactly my point.If you want to quote history then stick to the period, want to make arcade game with flashy effects call it anything OTHER than historic.

yidakiposted - Mar, 15 2004 - 16:28
yeah stumpus, the lightsaber effects shouldnt be flashy, it makes it so unhistorical ;)

xxxxposted - Mar, 15 2004 - 17:22
the locations in which you fight are 'historically' correct, said nothing about sword fighting being historically correct. i was just being sarcastic again.. why? cuz it's fun. i have the game and it's kinda fun but the fighting gets tiring and haven't played it in nearly a week, too many decent demo's. if they didn't put in the flare fx, imo, the game would have hit the floor hard with a splatt, i mean the graphics are not huge in this game and without the fx, it would be kinda boring..

hx will we see a review of neighbours from hell 2 soon

Napolean Andrewsposted - Mar, 16 2004 - 03:03
Ahh! I hate history but anyway is this "joan of arc" pretty cute!!

stumpusposted - Mar, 16 2004 - 16:04
Just read a review of this in PCZone and it slated it as nothing but a console port with rediculous hordes of enemies and button bashing....they gave it a pathetic 32% and a warning to stay well clear of.

xxxxposted - Mar, 17 2004 - 18:50
too bad they're useless.. PCZone.. pfff. what? they didn't get enough money from the game makers for a fair review? i seen that site, one of the worst review sites on the net for anything. like their infamous search button, they have the download info, example, for desert rats and their search button can't find it on their own site..i trust a) gameguru b) gameguru. Joan of Arc is a pretty nice game even if it is a console port. hell of a lot better than some other ports i seen.

Ooh yeahh! Joan of Arc, is one sexy babe I say. How bout that huh! do you boys like history.

i dunn'oposted - Apr, 04 2004 - 00:51
This is a cool game , but the only problem is , is that Joan of Arc didn't have magic powers...

Strizhoposted - May, 20 2004 - 23:31
This is a good game, but it could use some better AI.

LynXposted - Aug, 23 2004 - 18:19
This game is actually fun, save for a few bugs and camera issues (but hey, its considered good enough for a console port). As for flashy lightsaber effects, well, if they didn't have it, the game would seem very much duller. Oh yea Joan is hot. And you can change her armor and sword too....

blood gangstaposted - Sep, 30 2005 - 08:23
