    KB:WotN is a deliberately paced game, so donít go into it expecting to blaze through the plot in a matter of hours. There are times where I wish things moved a bit faster, but thatís probably because I was simply eager to see what happened next. There is a LOT to do and see in this title, so the $30 asking price seems justified. The issues mentioned above do warrant a more guarded recommendation, though. Overall, if youíre looking for some epic questing with a Viking theme, Endoria is where you belong.

    Outside of the tightly constrained availability of troops and prevalence of undead enemies in the first third of the game, this is easily the best Kingís Bounty to date. Something is going to have to change eventually, and the legacy issues like boss fights and recruitment tedium get less acceptable every year, but Iím still having a blast with Warriors of the North. Whether youíre new to the series or a 300-hour veteran, thereís much to recommend here. I just hope Iím not writing these same things next year.

    Repetition and game-breaking bugs cannot be excused. While I understand that some bugs just slip by and patches will likely rectify issues like the one I experienced, this is what separates top-notch games from the rest. On top of that, why am I still starting the game with spiders, snakes, and thieves? What has changed besides the skin on the models or even the palette? Why is the first boss a spider? I conclude with questions only because I do not understand the lackluster design decisions. Then again, "decisions" implies that thought went into the game.
