What Gamespot Users have to say about King's Bounty: The Legend

  • User Rating 10

    Extreme developer love and innovation on top of a tried and true system create something dangerously addictive.

    Rated on October 08, 2008 by Sarcerok

    At the risk of dating myself I must admit I loved the original King's Bounty from 1990. I also enjoyed the Heroes of Might and Magic series (though not so fond of the lastest version V). With King's B...

    I Can't Stop Playing

    Rated on October 09, 2008 by dkl322

    In my opinion this is one of the best fantasy/strategy games in the past 5 years. It combines the best features of Might and Magic with a touch of World of Warcraft to create a truly addicting experi...

    Kings Bounty looks and plays like an old school rpg yet it has surprising strategic depth in its combat variations. Naturally It has similarities to HOMM series as the original King's Bounty precee...

    If you are a human/humanoid who enjoys playing turn-based strategy games, then this game is your "perfect 10".

    Ok, this is a turn-based strategy game. NOT a "Diablo Clone" as one idiot reviewer said on another gaming WEB site, nor is it "real-time" strategy as it is classified here. It IS puzzling why Gamespot...

    When I first started-up King's Bounty: The Legend, I was pleased with the graphics. They are bright and colorful yet do an excellent job of creating a wide variety of game settings. Positives: Ki...

    This game rocks. Its a great remake of a classic. I am suprised by how awesome the artwork is, every area and enemy just pop out of the screen. The fantasy setting is isnt weird, its very classic, but...

    Excellent remake, highly addictive! The game is out for quite some time, yet GS failed to provide a timely review.

    King's Bounty is to Heroes of Might and Magic what Wolfenstein 3D, Doom and Quake are to all modern shooters. Of course, such an oldie (the initial game was released 18 years ago) really deserved a...

    Who needs hype when you have a quality product like this.

    Rated on October 17, 2008 by sirkel28

    People who think this is meant to be a pure strategy game like HOMM or something, and compare directly it to HOMM are mistaken. Yes the battle system looks and is very similar too HOMM, but that is...
