Showing 1-9 of 9
2 July 2014
Summary: I really like playing strategy games, especially the historical ones. Among these, the king's crusade offers you a historical campaign mixed with deep strategical elements, awesome visuals and so much fun. I really enjoyed playing it while having fun of tactical deepness and experiencing historical atmosphere.
Summary: I LUV this game! If you are a History buff/Strategy buff... fan of Medieval crap... you will love this game. The companion game: Crusaders, Thy Kingdom Come (Longass, Superfluous Title), was released before this game and is concerned with the 1st Crusades... this game involves the 3rd Crusades. (2nd Crusades barely happened, embarrassing and not game-worthy; youd lose in the second I LUV this game! If you are a History buff/Strategy buff... fan of Medieval crap...
Summary: I looked over at the Critics Review and I honestly had to question if they and I were playing the same game. My consensus is that flashy graphics automatically give you a 7 on most of these sites and the rest is just jelly on the burnt toast. The game is real time strategy with tactical unit based combat...basically Total War.
Summary: I sumitted a review back on August 30th, but didn't set my score correctly. I meant to give it a 7. Overall I liked the game play but felt it deserved to lose some points because at higher graphics settings(med - high) the game frequently crashes at the end of battles before the user is given a chance to save their progress. Still, on the lower graphics settings, the battles and game play I sumitted a review back on August 30th, but didn't set my score correctly.
Summary: The controls are easy and the game is a good Total War-like clone where you manage your army in combat. You basically take over territories without retribution. I somewhat expected the Saracens to attempt to reconquer lost territory, but they never did. Also, your inventory is limited in size, so you have to distribute your items or sell them to see them all.
Summary: Despite its faults and technical difficulties, Kings' Crusade is a well made game that is a blast to play. There are other games on the market with better graphics, although KC's graphics are still good. With settings on max, I can zoom all the way in to view my soldiers trudging through fields of grass and weeds, or the dust they kick up in the desert.
Conclusion: Another great PC style, PC gamer orientated, PC game from Neocore! If you liked their last title, King Arthur the Roleplaying Game, buying this is a no-brainer! This is far from a C&C/Total War clone and I recommend you check out rewiews around the web - and especially Reader Reviews! So far I have about 5 hours into the game, and am enjoying it as much as the King Arthur game I have put 60 hours into!
