For anyone wondering this. This is the first gmg sale I've been disappointed in, I do not fault gmg, they got stuck with these keys, but at $4 on sale I feel I got ripped off, because I would've happily waited for the "real" King Arthur Collection steam sells for $7.50 during a winter or summer sale.
This particular collection does work, but it is handled by steam in a weird way, your game in the library is NAMED "King Arthur: Collection" there's no DLC tab for it, so if you're curious you have to dig around in your game directory to figure out which DLCs it has. This is King Arthur 1 only.
IMHO these resellers really should either get refunded for products like this, or offered a cheap bump-up conversion to the modern-and-up-to-date King Arthur Collection(as seen on STEAM Store)
I don't even blame gmg for not listing the contents of said collection, because at the time the description was written and it was added to the store, this is all there was.
IMHO STEAM/Valve really dropped the ball on how this collection was handled, and lesson learned about buying older collections.
The game itself is awesome and refreshing in an otherwise morally ambiguous and relativistic age. 80/100 Why? Because Arthurian.

It is a really well done turn-based RPG wargame.
If you played Total War games, you will know what to do during battles. The mechanics are a little bit easier than in Total War games series, but there are some interesting additions, as capturing the flag gives you a perk.
The most interesting feature for me in King Arthur was text quests. They are pretty well done, interesting and have consequences/ rewards.
In general, it is a very interesting mixture of two genres, and I think it is worth your attention and money during the sale.

King Arthur is an awesome game... mixing in historical elements (we seldom see King Arthur/Medieval themes being incorporated into such strategic games) together with a comprehensive strategic background (it's a good game with a mix of different elements, reminds me of Tropico to a certain extent) but with average graphics. Not too bad a game, in fact, rather enjoyable (and rare) medieval strategic game. Fresh.
RPG meets RTSnoobboy191 | Sept. 10, 2013 | See all noobboy191's reviews »
This game combines rpg mechanics of leveling troops and your character, while ordering massive armies against mystical creatures such as dragons! Very closely related to something like the total war franchise, after battle you have an overview of your kingdom allowing you to rule over more than just the troops on the battlements. Not up quite to par with the total war series polish, but it is a great game worth a try.
A very good gameDemilisz | June 11, 2013 | See all Demilisz's reviews »
While Total War is still superior with it's epic battles, King Arthur aren't far behind. The game takes you to the Arthurian myths universe. It have a nice quest mechanics, where you need to make choices and live with consequences. You can choose good or evil, worship Old Gods or convert to Christianity. You make your own Round Table and send your Knights to quests that are waiting all over the world. And with your enemies you will clash on 3D battlefields where special places like churches, towers or ancient ruins can give you powerfull bonuses if you can capture and control it.
Truly great mix between turn base, RTS and cRPG.
