The player leads their character through the game world; exploring it; commanding armies in battle; and completing required and bonus quests. The game falls into two separate modes: Adventure Mode and Combat Mode. In adventure mode, the player controls the character in real-time, taking him through the adventure map seeking treasure, and completing quests. In combat mode, the player takes on the role of war chief, leading their troops through battle in a chess-like format. [Atari] Expand

  1. Superb. The AI is decent enough, the combat is great fun, and it's imaginative, varied, and hilarious.
  2. PC Gamer UK

    Singlehandedly saves fantasy 4X. [Christmas 2008, p.68]
  3. In many ways, King's Bounty is a step forward regarding the combat aspect for turn-based games of the HoMM variety. But barring this, Katauri Interactive's latest creation is nothing more than an RPG in which the only hero evolves in terms of basic genre principles that are already set in stone.
  4. If you love strategy games, especially tactical strategy games than King's Bounty the Legend is for you.
  5. PC PowerPlay

    For the serious gamer, expect lighthearted fun and you won't be disappointed. For the casual or younger gamer, expect to be painlessly initiated into the exciting world of strategic deck-based combat. [Christmas 2008, p.77]
  6. Everybody who liked Heroes will love King's Bounty. Professionals will not feel challenged enough, although they will claim heavy loses in the course of some battles. Small mistakes in the menu and scrambling of battles should be fixed next time. A sequel must come, because King's Bounty represents a ray of hope in the almost dead genre.
  7. A Western style Final Fantasy Tactics with tons of content but lacking in polish and accessibility.

But this is without doubt a 10/10 game. It is such a charmy game and I've never been calmer playing an rpg game. When you have bought the first game in the series (this one), you just have to buy the other ones, because this game is magnificent. Expand

    incredible game! The graphic, the versatility and everything is fantastic. Most of the negative reviews are basically because those peopleincredible game! The graphic, the versatility and everything is fantastic. Most of the negative reviews are basically because those people didn't played the game longer than 20 minutes, seriously play flash-games then if you want action by pressing the start button. Some enemies are impossible at first but if you take the scout ability in the first tier you have no problems with running into overpowered troops. The only thing they I am missing is a quest-marker on the map. I will definitely play it through again and buy the other games of the series! 10/10 would recommend! Expand

The humor is great, the challenge is decent and the game mechanic feels smooth and balanced. You can create your own strategic concepts or just go with large armies and good gear depending on the difficulty and your own desire. There's nothing bad to say about this little gem, really, so just play it. Expand
