The Best of the Series
25 September 2014
Summary: What can I say, if you like a mix of strategy and role playing... look no more. This series is a lot of fun and it can be tough going as you continually get you butt kicked, but that is part of this series. I love the way the developers make the gameplay so engaging and the combat scene is awesome and can be intense. If I could have given it a six, I would of.
Summary: It is neither mentioned within the product details (site page), nor anywhere on the game box that this requires Steam activation and contains DRM. This should be clearly noted by both the seller, and the manufacturer. The former may have been unaware (please correct this), however 1C cannot claim the same. Having noted it on the package would have allowed me to return this prior to opening it, rather than leaving me stuck with an unhappy purchase.
Summary: Not as good and/or fun as the previous titles in the series. Be it the use of the same graphics/engine for the third time, the weird viking units (i'm not a fan of them), the overcomplicated abilities of some units (especially with the Fire and Ice addon), the monotone beggining (with limits both on your troop types and enemy types) or the brutal length of the game (longest KB ever). It's Not as good and/or fun as the previous titles in the series.
Summary: It is by far the wrost title of King's bounty series, in both technical and gameplay perspective. On the technical side, it is now 2014. However, the game is still not yet error free. Random crashes and save corrpution since its launch in 2012 are still present in the game. Expect for even more serious crash and bugs if you also have its DLC.
Summary: First, I completely sympathize with the argument concerning the price of the game. It's an expansion pack and should probably cost around $20. If you want to wait for a sale on Steam it's understandable. It is however, a dense lengthy, and well thought out expansion. + It's far longer than the average complete $60 game. The first four zones (the start island) can take upwards of 15 hours First, I completely sympathize with the argument concerning the price of the game.
Summary: If you like the previous titles from Kings Bounty you will still like this one. However, it is aggravating having to initiate a "Steam" account to do so, then being inundated with game ads at the end of every game play session. Also, you are not able to travel as extensively in this offering from 1C, and can lose interest when it is much more difficult to continue through the "not so interesting" story line to open the few new continents or dimensions.
