Summary: For the price ($5), it is unbeatable. The Amazon direct download link is pretty fast, it takes me less than 2 hours to download the game. The game was installed on my Win 7 Ultimate and has no single issue. If you like HOMM, you may probably like this game. The combat system is little annoying, but overall the game is well-designed.
Summary: The gameplay itself was pretty fun. The storyline is fun and I definitely had a good time spending several hours on the game. If you want a simple and fun enough game to play this isn't a bad choice. I got the platinum edition when it was on sale for 5 bucks and for that price it was awesome.
Summary: Good replay value, very addictive, very fun to play! It is very tactically based turn based strategy mixed with a good storyline. Lots of areas to explore and many challenging enemies keeps the game interesting.
Summary: Right now Dec 2011 the King's Bounty collection is IMO the best buy for people that got excited about Heroes: Might and Magic 6, but got turned off by the DRM or the lower reviews, or the price and want something to tie them over. The game is very very similar to the Heroes M&M games. The main difference is you play as just one person and play through the game instead of difference factions.
Summary: The game is great and you can read detailed reviews on the retail version product page. This download creates two separate game folders and icons for each of the games. The original game, "King's Bounty: The Legend" does not require activation. The more recent "King's Bounty: Armored Princess" and its expansion "King's Bounty: Crossworlds" (bundled in the same interface) does require activation and it allows 3 activations!
Excerpt: If you are a gamer who loves RPG style strategy game with some adventure spicing, you shouldn't miss this game. In case you have played the original King's Bounty game which was published many years ago (I was still a kid back then he..he..he.) the gameplay is more or less the same but of course with LOADS of improvement using the latest technology. Made by the fans of the original game and first published in Russia and now the English version is out.
Summary: единственный минус - тексты и "фирменный юмор" - петросян может и хуже, но народу стоило потратится на вменяемые тексты, а не отдавать их писать геймдизам (которые конечно молодцы - игра интересная, но не писатели ни разу). проблема 90% отечественных игр, к сожалению даже таких хороших как эта.
