    Turn-based RPGs of yesteryear and today owe a lot of their fine-tuned tactics to the legacy of tabletop board games, and For The King pays tribute to this legacy with a digital adventure where anything can happen. The fast-paced nature of its exploration and combat keeps everything feeling fresh and lively, but the considerable reliance on chance does take the shine of its otherwise competent combat. However, with adjustable difficulties (which amend the severity of each death) and a sizeable amount of expansive DLC, this is one roguelike RPG that really shines in co-op.

    A decent roguelike, fun with friends, works with some fun ideas, and very difficult.
    It's fun to chip away at an adventure and strategically traverse the world. The various adventures within the game have different goals and central mechanics, feeling very distinct from eachother.
    There's very little "RP" in this RPG, the writing is simplistic and light. It works with the game overall, but is sorely lacking for those who enjoy a good story or play solo.
    Aside from the occasional crash and long load time, difficulty is the main issue with this game. The easiest difficulty is punishing, late game becomes ridiculous due to inflation mechanics, and RNG plays a large role in nearly all aspects of the game.
    Fun with two other people, but overall frustrating when solo.

    This game is sooooooo good! I just don't give it a 10 because of the eventual crash.

L’alliance assez inédite entre rpg, roguelike et jeu deFor the King est une jolie petite pépite vidéoludique qui mérite d’être découverte. L’alliance assez inédite entre rpg, roguelike et jeu de plateau fonctionne étonnamment à merveille. L’ambiance du jeu est réussie grâce à une direction artistique magnifique et une bande sonore bien en adéquation avec le style du jeu. Le contenu est généreux et For the King vous accompagnera pendants des dizaines d’heures de jeux, au travers de nouvelles parties , chaque fois unique, en solo ou à plusieurs. Full Review »
