Summary: Great game, I didn't think the remake could live up to the memories of the original Kings Bounty from back in the day but It's every bit as entertaining. The only issue is the size makes it run a bit slow on my computer, this can be fixed by adjusting the visual settings.
Summary: This game is one of the few games which take you back to the old days when games required brains. Very nice graphics, excellent gameplay (low replay value though), good soundtrack and a very good impression overall.
Summary: Excellent game, not only for homm lovers. Lovely graphics and music. The character advancement technique is nice - forcing you to choose wisely the most suitable upgrades for your character. The battle system is better than homm (better AI) and much more fun. Items and Artifacts have their own will, and you can also upgrade them by fighting their keepers. The quests are a bit silly - but it's ok since you need every XP you can get to gain levels.
Conclusion: Had not even heard of this till i saw it on plays coming soon releases. I read some reviews and was impressed enough to fork out the Â£25 to get it. Money well spent in my opinion. The game is Very addictive and just soaks up your free time. The game is very well polished on the graphic scale and sound affects are pretty good. The game is the usual story based main game with loads of side quests to earn leadership allowing more armys to control and gold to buy ure army.
Conclusion: This title places you into a large world to explore, loosely following the storyline and fighting enemies at every turn. You control your avatar directly, but rather fight in turn-based combat through a small army of assorted creatures, which your avatar supposedly leads. You can choose between a warrior and a mage (or a paladin), but again this does not mean you directly use the avatar's abilities.
Conclusion: I'm really happy with King's Bounty: The Legend, it's a great game to satisfy my need for a turn-based fantasy RPG. Having loved Heroes of Might and Magic 3 to an obsessive level in my younger years, this ticks all the boxes for a sequel a decade later - everything you expect to be there, is there. The spells are hard-hitting, the creatures diverse and well-balanced and the the graphics are lush (though I do have a high-end PC and can't vouch for those with a low spec).
