  • Summary: KUF places players in the classic struggle between good and evil to control power, magic, and the land of Bersiah. Players build and control over 70 units and their resources -- gold, iron, and mana -- in order to increase combat strategy options, magical abilities, and the availability of weapons.

  1. Just the right mix of graphics, sound and strategy to make for an entertaining evening of orc-bashing.
  2. Ultimately, while Kingdom Under Fire might be considered a Korean homage to Blizzard, there’s plenty here to enjoy in its own right.
  3. 72
    I could criticize KUF for an overall lack of spirit, but beyond this nebulous quality, there are some real concrete problems with the game. First and foremost, the game is too hard.
  4. Although fun for a few levels, the problems in this game quickly build up to the point where they bury any fun you might have been having with a mountain of frustration.
  5. If you’re looking for something new though, don’t expect it here.
  6. It doesn't come close to the strategy, personality, and gameplay balance of Warcraft or the addictive depth of Diablo. Instead it's an amateurish copy.
  7. Since the entire title is built around the concept of gradual character development through combat, the lack of a save option instantly nullifies any and all value that the innovation might have brought.
