    Warhorse have developed a game that’s not only massively in-depth, but equally as intriguing and captivating. Their care and attention to detail pulls through in each and every sequence within. This level of realism isn’t going to be for everyone, but for those that want the authentic experience, Deliverance delivers, and then some. It’s engaging, it’s deep, and it’s thoroughly entertaining.

    Warhorse Studios' RPG amazes for its high realism in recreating every aspect of the Middle Ages: environments, uses, weapons and even fights and character progression. Too bad for its very weak performances and many bugs, but despite this it still remains an advisable game for lovers of RPGs and european Middle Ages tales.

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance delivers a huge, complex world with a host of things to get involved in. The story is well written, brilliantly acted and expertly executed. I am worried that the buggy nature of the game will put many off and whilst the vast majority of the problems shouldn’t worry anyone too much, it can get a tad annoying.

    With an expansive story and memorable mechanics, it’s hard not to view Kingdom Come: Deliverance as one of the most interesting RPG releases in years. One where the difficulty is often a barrier to progress and some of the design choices become frustrating experiences in repetition or flat out giving up and moving on to another activity. Or reloading an earlier save to do more sword training. Rough around the edges sure, but the ambition often shines through.

    Offers up a decent, if predictable, story with interesting characters, beautiful scenery, and ambitious concepts but falls short with numerous glitches, annoying mini-games, and a lack of player immersion.

    Ultimately, Kingdom Come feels a bit like homework. If the historical setting and focus on realism appeal to you, then the deep gameplay systems and methodical pace are worth learning. If you'd rather be a magic-wielding wizard or the unequivocal hero, on the other hand, the source material will bore you almost instantly.

    What could have been an intriguing, unique, if somewhat underwhelming RPG is completely crippled by a terrible save system and game-breaking bugs. Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s well-publicized adherence to historical accuracy pays off in its thoughtfully designed landscapes and intriguing combat system, even if its survival-style mechanics fall somewhat flat. It’s just a shame that the more positive qualities are doomed to exist within a game that ended up being unplayable.

    This game hates you and wants you to fail. It sets you up to die 10 times in each main plot quest until you realize it's trying to pretendThis game hates you and wants you to fail. It sets you up to die 10 times in each main plot quest until you realize it's trying to pretend you have to be badass to beat it, then you realize they're just jerks. It wants you to fail to pretend it's a real, hardcore, game; when it's not. I suppose I'm a dumb man, I spent four hours playing and then got mauled by four bandits in a one sided fight that lasted 10 seconds; but since this game doesn't have an autosave feature I lost all my progress. So is it that I'm dumb and should have remembered that this game required me to save constantly (at a price)?, or that this game doesn't have an autosave feature because it's so badass (dumb)? I don't care, I stopped playing and looked up the end of the plot online. Don't waste your money. **** this game. Expand

    Broken game, simple as that. If I press the "unlock of target button" and the cursers unlocks on top of the target, so the autolock systemBroken game, simple as that. If I press the "unlock of target button" and the cursers unlocks on top of the target, so the autolock system makes me lock onto the target I just unlocked from, is the worst possible way the programmers could have done this. No locking system would have been preferable to a locking system that just doesn't work.
    Furthermore, when I press the "attack" button, then that action obviously should follow. I understand there is a delay based on skill and other aspects, but even at high levels I still would only have 9/10 attacks registering (attacks being pressing the button). HITTING the target is another issue entirely, one that doesn't make sense all of the time. If my sword goes through somebody, literally through the graphic, and there is zero indication that I landed a hit. When I land a hit, there is sound, recoil, something- anything, but every now and then (often enough to not be an anomaly) my attack will just go THROUGH the NPC (Note this happens most with stabbing).
    Honestly, I'd give the game a 7/10 if it weren't for the autolocking issue. It's that bad on Xbox one, but I've heard it's better on PC.
    When an enemy can recover in the midst of recoiling, and deliver a combo which kills me at full health (NOT REFERENCING THE FIRST CUMAN), then you have a broken game.
    When pressing the "unlock" doesn't do anything but make you lock on again, then you have a broken game.
    WHEN I AM PRESSING THE ATTACK BUTTON AND HENRY REFUSES TO ATTACK THE ENEMY AS THEY RECOIL IN PAIN OR DROP THEIR GUARD EVEN WITH FULL STAMINA IS RIDICULOUS
    KCD isn't a good game, it isn't broken one. Saying it's good despite the brokenness of the game would be akin to saying that Jimmy Carter's presidency was good despite the utter lack of coherent thought during it.
