Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: Is Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes a worthwhile purchase? Absolutely. Fans of the original will find more than enough to take part in with this experience, and for those that missed out on The Crusaders , this title is a prequel, so there is no reason not to take it for a spin. With a hearty single player experience, enough online goodies to shake a medieval sword at, and some pristine production quality to top it all enough, Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes equates to the perfect...
Conclusion: Operation Flashpoint: Elite limits itself significantly by being nearly identical to its PC predecessor which was released more than four years ago. The game does a good job of offering some nice Xbox Live play and the added campaign missions will appeal to those who are starved for some seriously slow moving military incursions, but it’s a real shame that there hasn’t been more attention to the production values.
Summary: Last year, a game was quietly released on the Xbox called Kingdom Under Fire Crusaders. The sequel to this under appreciated title is now available on the Xbox. Kingdom Under Fire Heroes is the latest title in this new franchise from Microsoft. This game has improved upon the past title bringing even a deeper gaming experience. This innovative game is still extremely fun and the online modes have even been expanded to allow for even more intense battles on Xbox Live.
Excerpt: If there’s something I hate, its poor quality assurance. As soon as I opened the manual of Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes I realised that, despite being given high scores and recommendations in certain publications, other people might not care so much. But, to spend so much on developing a game, designing artwork, pressing, printing and all the myriad other things that cost a lot of money, to not spend some money on a semi-literate proof reader is beyond belief.
Excerpt: Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes is the sequel to last year's hit, Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders . The game gives us a better look at the lands of Bersia, and features a variety of improvements over the original, including new units and more playable characters. Filled with intense action and deep strategy, Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes takes the series to the next level!
Excerpt: Okay. I want to get this out of the way immediately so that we can concentrate on the rest of this review, as many people may just look at the box and dismiss it as a clone of that game. That would be wrong, as it is much deeper than that, so take heed: Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes (the follow-up to last year's The Crusaders) is in no-way comparable to Dynasty Warriors.
Excerpt: Have you noticed how you'll quite often see really great looking women going out with the ugliest and dumpiest of men? For example: Michelle Yeoh (from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) going out with Jean Todt (manager of the Ferrari Formula One team). I still can't quite see the sense in that one. Nor anyone at all going out with Johnny Vegas (and his wife is a total fox). It defies all known logic. Is it the money? Is it the car? Is it (God forbid) the sense of humour?
Excerpt: was one of my favorite games of 2004. By combining elements from a variety of genres � hack-and-slash action, real-time tactics, and a tactical RPG-esque leveling and equipment system � it managed to achieve something fairly unique.
Conclusion: Action packed gameplay? Check! Hardcore heavy metal soundtrack? Check! A great online mode that keeps you coming back for more? Check! A seriously steep learning curve? Check! Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes has a lot going for it, just as long as you have the patience to figure it all out.
