Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders
9 September 2005
Excerpt: Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders is an interesting mixture of action, strategy and RPG. Think Dynasty Warriors with more depth. So, how does it turn out? Read on! The story of KUF revolves around a powerful artifact known as the Ancient Heart. The Dark Legions begin spreading through the land in search of the artifact, so the human Kingdoms of Ecclesia and Hironeiden build up to defend themselves. An epic war that covers all of Bersia ensues!
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: To be honest, Kingdom Under Fire-The Crusaders is probably a bit too ambitious for its own good, trying to meld great looking arcade gaming with a heavy tactical element. Maybe the technology isn’t quite here to fully do it justice but I can’t help feeling that with just a little bit more work on the camera and controls this would be a classic - because all the core elements are excellent.
Pros: Looks superb with a lot going on., You can play a whole campaign as good or evil characters., A reasonably decent and involving storyline., Plenty of tactical elements to engross., Comprehensive levelling up and equipment options., Loads of game for your buck.
Cons: Can be a bit of a joypad juggling act., The strategic camera could have done with some work., Not instantly appealing.
Conclusion: Natürlich hat auch Kingdom under Fire ein paar kleinere Probleme. Diese wirken sich aber nicht wirklich negativ auf das Gameplay aus. Viel mehr kann das Spiel durch seine positiven Seiten überzeugen. Viele unterschiedliche Missionen lassen die Stunden nur so verfliegen und die Genres Strategie, Rollenspiel und Action wurden wunderbar vereint. Insgesamt kann sich jeder auf vier unterschiedliche Kampagnen stürzen die wirklich Spaß machen.
