Summary: I bought this as a gift for an avid gamer. I have not played this game myself. He, however, loved it. I was a little concerned because he usually prefers the rpg type of computer game, but this had enough of that in it that he enjoyed it. In fact he liked it better than some of the straight rpg games he's played.
Summary: A fun game that anybody could play. When I bought the game I knew what I was getting and it was on sale at the time. What I was suprised about was that it came with more versions of the game then I thought. You get the original game and then the armored princess plus other versions that have their on story and saves. Runs great on laptops that don't have good graphics cards and/or slow processors.Overall a good casual game that you can just pick up and play.
Summary: IF YOU ARE AN OLD HAND AT ROLL PLAYING GAMES, ADD THIS TO YOUR COLLECTION. THE DOWNLOAD PRICE IS GREAT AND IT IS WELL WORTH THE VERY LONG TIME DOWNLOADING. IF YOU ARE NEW TO ROLL PLAYING GAMES,THIS IS A GOOD PLACE TO START. THE STORY LINE IS GOOD,THE CONTROL SYSTEM IS INTUITIVE, AND YOU CANNOT BEAT THE PRICE. EXPECT MANY HOURS OF ENGROSSING PLAY TIME.
Summary: For those who may be having trouble getting this download to work in Win7 64bit... The 1.3.1 patch for Crossworlds is located here: [...] I didn't look into Legends as I already owned a different copy of that game, but I'm sure it's on that 1C page somewhere. That's the company site. The patch installer also seems to be "dumb" and won't recognize the install location have the time.
Summary: I don't know why people are having issues with the install of this program or getting it to run. If you already have DirectX installed it should be no problem even in Win7-64. And talk about addictive. I sat down just to try them out for 30 minutes at the end of the day and 2 hours later I had to force myself to quit. Its one of those games that you don't need to read the instructions for, though I am sure they do help. Definitely worth the sale price of 4.99.
Summary: I am a long time fan of the Heroes of Might and Magic series. When I originally bought King's Bounty I hadn't made the connection. Evidently, King's Bounty is a remake of the original game that the Heroes games were based on. One plus is that if you have played the Heroes games you won't have any trouble at all figuring out how to play. It's not exactly the same, but it's very similar.
One of the BEST, most underrated games of ALL times. Great action and story, and soooo much fun! A+++!!!

Summary: I played the original King's Bounty: The Legend after reading an article in PC Gamer, which declared that it was one of the best strategy games in the tradition of Heroes of Might and Magic that was ever made, and almost never played. That game became something of a cult classic, and later in it's release rose in sales as more and more people around the world heard of it. I played it, and was just spellbound by it.
Summary: Huge file took forever to download with the Amazon downloader and then proved to have several file errors, probably caused by pausing the download, so the game could not run well and froze in several places, locking up my whole computer. This was intended as a Christmas gift for my grandchildren, but that didn't happen. We're on a satellite service with a fair use policy - so, couldn't repeat the download without going way over their download limit.
Summary: The purchased serial number is good for 3 activations only. What's not mentioned is that you can deactivate the game for 9 times, allowing you to reactivate again. In simple terms, you get a total of 12 chances to activate IF YOU DEACTIVATE everytime. The problem is this procedure is NOT mentioned in the user manual or by other reviewers. The game installs WITHOUT creating a shortcut to "protect.exe" which is the program you need to run in order to deactivate.
