    Kingdom Come: Deliverance delivers on its ambitious promise for a realistic, grounded open-world medieval role-playing game, with engaging and complex gameplay systems, weighty and tactical combat and an interesting main story slightly let down by a lack of polish and technical issues on launch.

    Kingdom Come's rough edges are smoothed by the knowledge you're playing a game where no detail is too small. Exploring 1400s Bohemia is a sure-fire delight.

    A veraciously detailed RPG that sometimes forsakes fun in the name of 'realism.' [Apr 2018, p.83]

    Warhorse Studio has achieved the most realistic and respectful with the History medieval RPG. Kingdom Come Deliverance introduces plenty of good ideas in the genre. But they are not quite well-implemented in this gigantic ambitious map. The game needs updates for optimization improvement.

    Kingdom Come is one of the most ambitious RPGs in a long while, with lots of things to do and choices to make. Some technical issues aside – if you are into Skyrim and The Witcher 3 - it is worth a closer look.

    If you absolutely love simulators and really appreciate realism and the little details in games, then this will really grip you. But at the same time, many will find the game far too frustrating and unforgiving, both because of the intense focus on realism that doesn't always result in fun gameplay experiences, and the number of bugs and severe loading times. There's a compelling game here, but it needs a polished edge only a series of patches or a sequel can deliver. We can't wait for either.

    A gaming experience will never feel real, much less truly playable, when it's plagued with as many bugs as this game is—not least of which is its failure to at times recognize your button inputs.

I love everything about it. The landscapes are ten times more beautiful than even Oblivion. The harshness of everything reminds me a lot of Morrowind. Even the lockpicking skill progression a lot of people complain about feels perfect for me. You need to break some lockpicks before you're able to do anything. And that's the way it should be. Reading must be learned first and can be a really useful skill. It takes multiple ingame hours to read a book. But you can unlock a perk which makes you less hungry and tired while reading... there is so much love and detail in this game which makes roleplaying really immersive. I could ramble on for hours. From other peoples reviews it seems I got lucky and only encountered very few bugs and it seems like they are actively working on them. Finally I can stop hoping for Bethesda to come to their senses. Thank you so much Warhorse. Expand

    I will give it 10/10, just because of people who will cry about bugs (I know there is lags but they will fix it, it's small team and independent studio) and SJW who will give it 0/10 because of "no POC in game"

This authenticity, brought forth byThis is, without a doubt, the most authentic and engaging role-playing experience I have played. This authenticity, brought forth by innovative combat systems and well-constructed RPG mechanics, is what totally saves the game for me in spite of its many flaws. While Skyrim focused on exploration, and the Witcher focused on story, this game successfully focuses on role-playing and carves out its niche in the RPG world. The bugs: events failing to queue, character bugs, and the occasional sound bug mar the experience but not completely. The story, dialogues, and basic interactions need to be streamlined though. Cutscenes are yawn-inducing and by the end, I didn't care for Henry's story as much as I did for his armor-build. The game thrives on pushing the envelope and as this is Warhorse's very first game, I am more than willing to look past the flaws. More than anything else, this game makes me very excited for Warhorse's future projects. Warhorse, make more games. I will throw money at them. Expand

    Heard about this game on Steam. My PC is in need of an upgrade and probably wouldn't run it, so I was glad that they were releasing it onHeard about this game on Steam. My PC is in need of an upgrade and probably wouldn't run it, so I was glad that they were releasing it on PS4.

    I am a big fan of RPGs especially the Elder Scrolls series so I was very excited for this game especially when its based on a true historical setting.

    Let me start with the attention to detail. It is fantastic! You really feel like you're in Medieval Bavaria. Villages have more life than Skyrim and Oblivion. The attention to detail is on point. I love how what you wear and the state of your appearance factors in conversations. You need to remove dirtied or in my case bloodied and smashed combat armor in order to sway conversations in your favour. It can work in your favour out in the battlefield to intimidate enemies etc.

    Combat is fun, and you really need to spend time honing skills and getting better gear to actually progress in the story (I'm talking to you Runt!). The fighting especially combat stances is reminiscent to For Honor, which also has similar parrying and dodging movements. You need to target specific areas, with vital weak points eg. aim for the head if they aren't wearing a helmet (again I'm talking to you Runt!).

    Battles is where it gets way ward especially on the PS4. The frame rate drops significantly when they are heaps of soldiers in front of you to the point where it gets blurry slow.

    They are a lot of graphical bugs, draw distance issues. I see villagers sprouting out of the ground like plants. Textures take time to load, especially when you change gear on your character.

    Saving the game can be a nuisance, as auto saves only occur when quests start or when you wake up from sleep. You can buy "Save Schnapps" from merchants to enable you to save whenever you like. I heard they will release a "Save and Exit" option in the next update which will be a god send.

    Couple of things that doesn't go well on consoles are lock picking and pick pocketing. It is insanely hard on the controller! Again they will release a patch to fix this.

    Level progression is very similar to Skyrim, where you level up depending what you are doing and you can also pay NPCs to train you on your chosen skill.

    Overall, it had a rough release but to me the Pros far outweigh the Cons. This game is a very brave attempt to break away from the usual RPGs and tests your limits with as little hand holding as possible.

    Game gets a 6 for originality and story without magic, elves and dragons.

For me, the joy was killed not by bugs, of which there are many, or by the combat, which I think is generally fun and unique, but by the inconsistent quests, which I guess may be considered bugs. Quest outcomes and reactions of NPCs vary illogically based on your inputs and sometimes based on bugs. They’re broken, not open ended, and illogical, as well as completely inaccurate to what real people, let alone real Bohemian medieval citizens, would do, so it completely kills any sense of immersion. Many of the game’s quirks are justified on the grounds of realism, but the quests (and a lot of character actions) completely killed any immersion for me, which is a shame.

    Only posting because I expected issues like this and the PS4 launch bugs to be solved as of June 2020 based on other reviews here. They are not.
