Default King's Bounty - First Russian Review, Screens

April 23rd, 2008, 01:41
CRPG.ru dropped us a line to say they have posted the first web review of Katauri's King's Bounty. The score appears to be 9.5/10 so apparently they like it a whole lot - but we'll need the help of any Russian readers to know more.
Anyway, for the rest of us, check out the three dozen new screens.
More information.

I didn't realise it was the same franchise as the 1990 game.

The review really looks like a list of features from the press-release mixed with praise from the reviewer.

Brief summary is as follows:

- It's very addictive, buy a copy for your girlfriend this Friday or you'll have to fight for it over the weekend

- It has a minimum of 40 hours of gameplay resulting in ~2 weeks for one walkthrough

- Budget was not high, but all the elements of the game were made with loving care and impressive attention to detail

- Engine is rather old, but artist's work makes it look good and required system specs are low

- Tactical battles have come straight from Heroes of Might & Magic series with a bit of JRPG spice like FinalFantsy-like guardian spirits and are really well-polished.

- Game texts are filled with healthy humor(reviewer makes a note that some consider it to be not really halthy and looking like game dialogues were written by programmers, like in Space Rangers, but strongly disagrees)

- He also notes that pathfinding is sometimes poor, but apart from that there are no significant problems

- Summary line states that the mixture has blended perfectly, every element fits the game and cannot be removed

Thanks for the translation, drum. This one was already on my list, but it just moved up.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.

Takes a ridiculously long time to load, but that is indeed a nice video.

I'm definitely getting this game.
