A great conversion of underrated Amiga game of the same name, Joan of Arc: The Siege & The Sword is a fun strategy game about one of the most intriguing historical personages who has rarely been depicted in a computer game. The game begins with an excellent introduction scenes about the Hundred Year war between France and England, and sets the stage for the game. The year is 1429, and a 17-year-old peasant girl had just been ordered by Saint Michael to save Charles, the true heir to the French throne, by ordaining him in Reims and driving the English out of France. Charles, convinced that she is an instrument of God, appointed Joan a general and ordered her to free Orleans...

In many respects, the game is a typical medieval conquest game reminiscent of Cinemaware's Defender of The Crown. However, similar to Chip's earlier Pharoah, it has several innovative features, such as the ability to forge alliance between countries, and fun action-style sequences. With over 35 territories to conquer on your way to Reims, the game will keep Joan of Arc fans busy for a long time. Joan of Arc may not be feature the brightest AI on the market or the best graphics, but with its unique historical setting and atmospheric gameplay, it's a very enjoyable game that comes recommended, especially to fans of Cinemaware classics. Thumbs up!
