  • Excerpt: A long time ago (in 1990), King’s Bounty was some sort of predecessor of Heroes of Might & Magic. Anno 2008 we get this sequel which was inspired by that same series. The mutual influence is clearly noticeable which doesn’t mean both are copies of each other but that those that like Heroes will...

  • Excerpt: When one thinks of Russian made games, images of cheap poorly translated and supported products come to mind.

  • Excerpt: Whoever first said "less is more" clearly did not play King's Bounty: The Legend – nevermind that whoever said that is probably dead and gone. Might and Magic fans, and, more pertinently, ye olde King's Bounty fans should rejoice if they have not picked up this gem.

King's Bounty: The Legend

ActionTrip
8 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Weak writing, the retro look and other flaws of King's Bounty shouldn't stop you from trying the game out. There's a beautifully presented fantasy world just waiting to be discovered, along with a long single-player game crammed with enough content to guarantee a lot of hours of good clean fun.
  • Pros: A well-polished and addictive strategy game, effectively utilizes traditional turn-based gameplay mechanics, lengthy single-player campaign, huge world map, beautiful artwork, great soundtrack;
  • Cons: Retro visuals, story lacks depth, weak characterization, world map needs some additional work, absence multiplayer.

  • Summary: One thing you can say for King's Bounty: The Legend is that it fares a lot better than most resurrections of old games. While these digitalized archaeological digs generally reveal that you wouldn't want to go home again even if you could (Defender of the Crown, anyone?
  • Pros: Solid gameplay based on a traditional tactical RPG formula, Good turn-based tactical depth, Strong RPG flavor and storyline, Colorful graphics evocative of old-time role-playing
  • Cons: Not much in the way of innovation, No multiplayer
