  1. It's a solid experience with a somewhat steep learning curve...and a surprisingly deep skill system.
  2. Overall, Heretic Kingdoms is fun, fun, fun and destined to be a sleeper hit. The few niggles never really affected my enjoyment of the game. With its engaging story and completely different skill system, it's definitely worth your while to pick it up and play.
  3. The story is innovative, and so is the attunement system and the character advancement system.
  4. It works, but we have a sense of been there and done that. What keeps the game interesting and compelling is watching the growth of the main character.
  5. An enjoyable RPG experience with some interesting game play elements provided you can get past the shortcomings.
  6. The saving grace of this game is its affordable price mark.
  7. Does little to enliven the usual trail of hacking, slashing and opening boxes. We're pretty sure it shows the world's worst character creation screen: you can change your hairstyle and, er, your clothing. [Christmas 2004, p.122]

    Well, probably one of the bests RPGs ever and I'm not saying that just because I'm from Slovakia like the authors (3D People). Kult Well, probably one of the bests RPGs ever and I'm not saying that just because I'm from Slovakia like the authors (3D People). Kult has IMHO very sofisticated storyline and great character leveling and skill system which I've never seen before, as well as the ability to access Dreamworld - alternative dimension which is inhabited by spirits. It brings a fresh breeze into this genre. Althrough character generation may be unsatisfying as you can only play as a female, it enables the storyline to develop very well. This game is 1000% worth playing! Expand

    This game hasn't come out where i am so i had to get it on import :( but i've been pleasantly surprised with it! if you're This game hasn't come out where i am so i had to get it on import :( but i've been pleasantly surprised with it! if you're only into the latest graphics, youre gonna be disappointed but the rpg mechanics are great and the story really is a cut above most fantasy fodder out there. for serious rpg fans only, maybe. (oh, and character generation is simple but this is a *story* driven game - i didn't hear anyone marking down games like final fantasy vii which have no character generation screen at all!!!) Expand

    Initially, I had trouble maintaining interest with this game, mostly because I had some difficulty understanding how the attunement systemInitially, I had trouble maintaining interest with this game, mostly because I had some difficulty understanding how the attunement system worked. Once I got the hang of that, I really enjoyed playing. There is an interesting story here, and the graphics were decent. The lack of a character creation screen didn't bother me since the main character (Alita) develops during the game rather than before. By learning attunements, gaining skills and acquiring weapons and armor, there is plenty of character customization. Multiple endings to the game felt thin and didn't really add much. Overall, a good game. Expand

    Sucks big time, I'm totally amazed this has received a few decent ratings, people must be very easily pleased. Character creation is Sucks big time, I'm totally amazed this has received a few decent ratings, people must be very easily pleased. Character creation is naff, navigation is cumbersome and fighting dull. Graphics are good if you haven't played any games since doom came out. Expand

    Dull, boring game in which the protagonist looks like she jumped out from a soft porn scene to a religion themed diablo anticlone. Is thereDull, boring game in which the protagonist looks like she jumped out from a soft porn scene to a religion themed diablo anticlone. Is there any reason why we have to play a female character? Other than badly drawn boobs to attract 12 year olds like Nitin K. down here? Well I'm not from Slovakia and my voting isn't effected by nationalist feelings. This sucks. Expand
