  • Excerpt: Let me first get this out the door; it is very hard to compare to Kingdom Under Fire to any other game really, because you have probably never played anything like this before. The game is a real time strategy game combined with hack and slash battles and some mild RPG elements. So did they pull it off? Read on to find out. Graphics: 8/10 The graphics are nothing truly special, but are nothing to scoff at either.

  • Excerpt: Prepare for epic medieval battle in Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders , an upcoming strategy game from Microsoft. The game is headed for the Xbox this fall, and so far it’s looking like something Xbox owners should keep an eye on.

  • Excerpt: Exactly eight minutes ago, a developer somewhere in the world woke up with a cold sweat running down their back. “Wait a minute”, they said, “Cheesy guitar music doesn’t sound great in games?!?” Across the room, an old bearded gentleman was seated on a stool, reading Edge magazine. “Why, of course not. Didn’t you realise?” Startled by this inexplicable figure, the developer didn’t hasten to reply.

  • Excerpt: Admittedly, I was drawn to Kingdom Under Fire: Crusaders because I heard it would be one of the few strategy titles where you'd be leading from the front. After all, I'm drawn to romantic stories about combat. Alexander the Great, it is purported, wore a white plume of feathers on his helmet and stood at the front of a wedge formation, and no doubt, he made sure his enemies knew it was him.

  • Conclusion: conditions, without a hint of slowdown. It’s the first game in a long time to coax a “Whew!” out of me after a really pitched encounter. An enemy group can be cut down rather quickly if you can pick out the leader and vanquish them. For some groups finding the leader is simple because they stand out in some obvious way, like being mounted, but all too often I was left running around the group seeking out the leader.

  • Excerpt: Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders is actually not a brand new franchise. Although it was not a popular game, the original Kingdom Under Fire: A War of Heroes was available only on the PC and was yet another standard RTS clone. Because of the lack of originality, the title never sold well. Something, however, caused Microsoft to sign on to Publish Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders though. They made a pretty good choice in choosing it too!

  • Excerpt: . After 50 years of peace following the conclusion of that game, a human border town is attacked by the Dark Legion, an empire of dark elves, orcs, ogres, and other various nasties, all kept in line by their vampire overlords. With war thrust upon them, the humans ally once again with the high elves and dwarves to fight back the hellspawn and, in the process, try to reclaim the Holy Ground for themselves.

  • Excerpt: Before I get started, I’d just like to make it clear how much I really enjoyed this game. Kingdom Under Fire: Crusaders is one the most enjoyable games on the market today. Unfortunately, this game may fall under a lot of people’s radar because of the rather large shadow cast over it by all the big releases this fall such as Mortal Kombat: Deception, X-Men Legends, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

  • Conclusion: With all of this gameplay action, can the graphics really keep up with its fair share of the deal? And the simple answer to that is yes. The graphics of Kingdom Under Fire really are one of the best parts of the game, but at the same time I still think the animation could have used a little more work in the long run.
