    Disappointing. I can only say its TURN BASE fighting system is destorying the whole game. Especially the boring STORY.

    The background of the game is as simple as it can, the player is a student and have to pass a training test to become .....simple? naive? The Turn Base fighting system is something like a special f...

    This game rocks! Just like Heroes of Might and Magic, but better. A perfect remake of the 1990 DOS classic.

    As a huge fan of the original DOS version of King's Bounty (which I still play regularly!), a Heroes of Might and Magic enthusiast, and a skeptic to boot, let's just say I had extremely high hopes for...

    Rated on September 29, 2008 by _Vali_

    I've been playing it for just 2 days ( about 15-20 hours ... it's addictive ! ) and I'm definitely hooked. Considering myself one of the biggest fans of the Heroes series, I can still say this ga...

    King's Bounty is a fun and very colorful game, but offers same time depending on difficulty level very challenging and tactical gameplay. Moving around on the map with your hero is all real-time but t...

    Heroes of Might and Magic clone? Or beautiful revival of the original King's Bounty in DOS era?

    Rated on September 30, 2008 by Natuo

    First of all, HoMM 2 was among my first TBS games back in the 90's. Since then I followed every HoMM series (except the first one and the fourth one). When I first heard of King's Bounty: The Legen...

    I guess it's alright while one waits for, by some art of magic (pun not intended) for an actual GOOD game to come out.

    Rated on September 30, 2008 by albertbolivar

    This game is alright if you have nothing else to do, no other game to play, or are awaiting the magical release of an actually GOOD game for a change! It's a fine revival of a classic genre for tho...

    Finally!

    Rated on October 02, 2008 by scholaar

    This is how HOMM V should have been, a very very brilliant remake of a game that invented its own genre. It will make you want to play just a bit more, do just one more battle and when it's done, you'...

    Exactly what I have been waiting for. This is one of the top 5 games to come out in 2008.

    Rated on October 04, 2008 by thedemon44

    It has everything I want, and has kept very true to its origins. When I was a kid I couldn't get enough of King's Bounty on the Genesis. I still play the original on an emulator on my PSP along with s...
