    To put it simply, KYN is a fun game that doesn’t do enough to separate itself from the countless other top down-action RPGs.

    If you like games like Dungeon: Siege and Divinity: Original Sin, Kyn could be a nice choice to be played. The Viking-fantasy-setting is well designed, the combat-system is fast and tactical. The classless RPG-system allows flexible character progression and skill-selection. Some minor bugs and uncomfortable menus are annoying. Graphics are nice and sound is very atmospheric.

    An outstanding game considering that it has been done by 2 individuals, but not the best game in its genre by far.

    The idea behind Kyn is great, but it suffers from a lot of bugs, problems and half-baked game mechanics.

    Kyn is a solidly-crafted RPG with some fun and interesting set pieces, but isn't innovative enough to stand out among similar titles in the genre.

    A game that showed great promise, but suffers from a severe lack of polish.

    Kyn is a disappointing title. I don't recommend anyone to spend their money and buy a game with a bad and unfair battle system, problematic path finding, shallow scenario, uninspired characters and minimal character customization. Get the soundtrack instead.

    Graphics are cartoonish but they are fine, I did not find problems with fps.
    It has nice nordic-based storyline but I will never forgive them for not putting map of the city, I suck with coordination. Don't get me wrong, its not awesome game but its playable and I am having fun playing it, its worth a try.
    I did not like gameplay a lot, just not my thing, and it pisses me off coz camera is bound to the characters, I would like it more if it had free camera as well as full pause not just timed slowdown. I like crafting system but I do not like character dev a lot, its fine, but could be done better.
