  1. Aside from a few nice options, sadly this is second-rate sword-slashery. Try Ninety-Nine Nights instead.
  2. For most players there's just not enough here to hold any prolonged interest. [Mar 2008, p.100]
  3. There comes a time when you start to hope that the Circle of Doom in the title is actually the red ring of death so you won't have to play it anymore.
  4. This game is a boring affair where the logic in the design is nowhere to be found. Instead of the Circle of Doom, we rather prefer a Red Ring of Death.

    Multiplayer action adds as a bit more life to this bare bones game. Coming from a series that understands character progression and massive battles so well, Circle of Doom seems more like a quick way to put out a title instead of a fully developed idea.

    But boring combat is just one half of the misery pie that this game serves up, with half-baked role-playing elements comprising the rest.
  7. Circle of doom indeed. [Feb 2008, p.81]
  8. Repetitive tasks have a history as a means of punishment that goes back to ancient myth. Kingdom Under Fire: Circle Of Doom seems keen to emulate this for reasons known only to its sadistic creators. [Mar 2008, p.128]
  9. 30
    It's never a good sign when I nearly fall asleep while playing a game...multiple times.
  10. Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom follows a straight-forward formula, but somehow, it can’t even get that right. Most of the time, it just makes the gameplay too easy, too basic, or too difficult by design.
