Not my style

Summary: I rarely play turn-based games, although I loved Wizardry 8. However, this game seems pretty cheesy. The graphics are OK, but it just seems to be for kids, not adults. If you want a real turn-based game, perhaps Chess is better?
Game doesn't work when I did a online download 4 times

Summary: I tried uni-stalling and re-installing 4 different times and it still won't work. Had to wait at least 1 hour for the game to completely install and then when it finished installing, it told me it was missing a file.
Summary: I'm a big fan of HoMM series, Civilization and some of the main RTSs as well. This game didn't really fit me as it seems to be some sort of a mix between turn based and rts. Was interesting for the first 12 hours, but not a lifetime fascination for sure.
Summary: This game is not nearly as good as some reviewers would lead you to believe. The story was very dull and inane, and the combat did not make up for the lack of a credible tale (or a decent English translation for that matter). The creators of this game have decided that increased difficulty does not mean you need solid tactics or lateral thinking, rather the more difficult areas of the game require the player to defeat a few hordes of enemies and return to a merchant a...
Summary: Fun: King's Bounty: The Legend is a throwback to older generations of role playing games: Turn-based, stupid quests, unoriginal (and uninteresting) storyline, level building, and so on. Despite the tired formulae at work in this game, King's Bounty: The Legend performs these old tricks quite well. The turn-based nature of combat changes over the course of the game.
Different, a bit dated but Beautiful Graphics-cute storylines

Summary: I bought this game simply because of the many five star reviews. I did enjoy the cute colorful graphics and storylines. The interface I found a bit difficult. The heroe was unable to dismount from the horse ever. I have to say that it had some interesting qualities such as a myriad of fun little baddies to battle, however note, all were fought on grids, which just was not my favorite way to play.
Summary: Reading the review section for Kings Bounty: The Legend I couldn't help myself and had to write my own review. I see a lot of references and comparisons made to Heroes of Might and Magic and I wish to add my point of view. I have to point out that I have played Heroes of Might and Magic 1-5 with all official add-ons. Therefore I feel qualified to compare Kings Bounty: The Legend (hereafter KBTL) and Heroes of Might and Magic (hereafter HoMM).
Summary: I didn't like that you don't get to control your own character at all during the fights, and I also didnt like the way the recruit mechanics worked. The stacked unit system is confusing when trying to determine unit strength and health. I think it would've been much more fun if they actually were just a single unit that perhaps could grow in strength as well.
Summary: I've only played the demo, so things may be different in the full game. However, IMHO, this is simply a graphical makeover of 3DO's original Heroes of Might & Magic. It's pretty to look at, but it's still just HOMM. If you like that kind game, this is a good one. But if you were looking for something like Might & Magic or Wizardry...this isn't it. I do agree with other reviewers, it's good to see a turn based game; they're getting rare.
