    Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Thankfully, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is not a landslide, a mix of game and reality. It may not capture the appeal of the overall mainstream, but that’s okay. Anyone willing to take a dive into the niche waters of the gaming world, and not afraid of games being unforgiving, should definitely check this out. I love this game. Open your eyes, give this game a try and see.

    One can't help but feel awe when considering Warhorse Studios' attention to historical detail in recreating 15th century Bohemia. Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a truly unique and memorable experience from start to finish, but its hardcore mechanics (that sometimes border on pure LARPing) make it a game that is certainly not for everyone.

    Kingdom Come is a mess of bugs, and there’s the constant feeling that independent developer Warhorse is biting off more than it can chew. But there’s a charm to its scrappiness, and it does enough interesting stuff that I’m willing to tolerate the creaky framework struggling to prop everything up. It’s one of the most satisfying, rewarding role-playing experiences I’ve enjoyed on PC for a while, but the inconsistent performance and the game’s tendency to completely break does test my patience from time to time.

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a huge first person GDR that can count on an higher level of immersion when compared with other similar productions. The combat system is amazing and, even if it will take you some hours to handle a sword correctly, all the time will spent will be worth it. A must-have for all fans of open-world RPGs in search of deeper gameplay mechanics.

    Great story and medieval atmosphere, but with some technical problems, like low frame-rate, graphic pop-ups and improvable artificial intelligence.

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a fantastic and absolutely frustrating experience. I was treated to a memorable lead character whose agency and development was largely wiped away with a twist late in the game and a collection of incredible gameplay mechanics and quests repeatedly stifled by bugs. Despite its downfalls, though, the good parts of the game are so good.

    If Kingdom Come: Deliverance has a ton of bug fixing to improve the performance drastically, it could be a hidden gem. It’s clear that the game, despite its grand ambitions, was simply not ready for public consumption. Shimmers of brilliance are there and had it seen more time in the oven, or set its expectations at a more reasonable level, it could have been brilliant and scored significantly higher as a result. Alas, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is another cautionary tale rather than a trend setter.

    This game is basically dream of every hardcore gamer.
    Its visuals and atmosphere are amazing, mechanics are truly unique and very realistic, and combat, while very very tough, will give you immense satisfaction once you get a grasp on it.
    Survival elements together with limited saves will always keep you tense and worried about your life, every encounter can be deadly, every action might have huge long and short term consequences.
    Its not for everyone though, if you expect handholding, power fantasy elements or completely frustration free experience you should stay off, be warned! This game will punish you, hard and often, but reward is so, so worth it, believe me.
    The game itself is worth it for its grounded based story of common man in hard times, and even though set in medieval times, there are many elements modern people can relate to, making it really captivating experience.
    There are definitely some technical issues so far, but I am certain they will get patched soon.

    That said, a word of warning!! This is NOT a fast paced game. At times it's downright HARD. It doesn't hold your hands with saves. You make a mistake, you live with it (LOVE THAT personally though).

    All in all, so glad I got this game. Most fun I've had in a long time.

And my gameplay is strongly affected by my Skyrim experience. Meaning my herbalism skill is on level 15 while all other skills lag on level 3 or 4 :).

    voice acting: generally good, with some minor flaws in side quests. Also, when asking the same thing I gate 100% the same dialog, which can break immersion when misclicking in the dialog menu.

    gameplay: I can say it can be frustrating, especially in the beginning when I can't save as often as I would like. This game punishes you for trying foolish things, and it forces us to repeat tens of minutes again and again when we are caught off guard and our last save was god knows how long ago. BUT, once you get into it, you begin to play more carefully, you don't rush into combat if you don't have to and you begin to care for your life and HP as if it were your own. From this standpoint it is really immersive and I found myself playing this game for 10 hours straight. It can be frustrating, but also, it is quite a lot of fun, especially when you are trying to overpower stronger enemy force while being a filthy peasant :D.

    performance: playing on laptop with nVidia 4GB VRAM video card and 8 GB RAM with i7 processor. Everything set on high and no noticeable fps drop.

    general feel: I think it was worth my money, I found myself laughing quite a few times when the situations were generally funny. I was able to loot the corpses of my parents and I got to execute the executioner :D. But I did not finish the story yet, so maybe it sucks at the end, who knows.
    I found only two bugs so far, one when loading a game, bodies are stuck in default skeleton position for few seconds before proper positions for them are loaded, and in some dialogs, voice disappeared. Other than that, I would say a good game.

    general cons: Can't play female character, but that is understandable. Medieval times ant stuff. I survived not playing female in Witcher, I can survive it here. No character creation options, I have to look as the developers want me to look. But that is the same argument as with Witcher. IT is frustrating to target flowers to pick, I have to aim 100% accurately.

Especially bugs are annoying when game limits your save points. If you loose hour of your game due to your mistake, you can blame yourself - it's part of the fun. If you loose hour of your game because your are stuck on never-ending loading screen it's **** expierence".

    If developers didn't rush with game realase, hire more testers it would be candidate for GOTY.

    Worst combat i have ever seen in a game its useless for a PC player with mouse and keyboard.

    Worst combat i have ever seen in a game its useless for a PC player with mouse and keyboard.
    you have to remember combos and time you hit and the game slow down when opponent hit you so it ruins your timing then game has lock on and you cant just simply shift target but moving mouse.
    Some quest just stops in the suddenly when you was expecting more.
    Sex scenes are Cringe worthy at best.
    The game is full of game braking bugs.
    Boring open world.
    Really bad writing.
