The sound effects are perfectly serviceable, as are the little barked lines of dialogue from player characters and NPCs alike. As for the game’s score, it’s not particularly memorable, but it does fit the atmosphere and setting perfectly well.
Hood’s art style is suitably evocative, with towering castles, candle-lit keeps, courtyards patrolled by knights, misty marshlands, and ancient leafy forest canopies. Textures are a tad murky, however, and not exactly a showcase for next-gen.
Fundamentally, Hood: Outlaws & Legends works well enough, but it also comes with its fair share of frustrations. Being throttled by the Sheriff while being preoccupied fighting other players is one of our least favourite things, for instance.
A paltry handful of maps, a single mode, and four characters don’t make for the most generous offering as far as content is concerned. There are free-to-play multiplayer games out there that give you more - this one costs $30.
A perfectly fine list with a good spread that ensures milestones and accomplishments are duly rewarded. Some objectives require a magic combination of luck and timing, though, which can be annoying.
