Armored Princess - Review @ Games32

Games32 has posted a review of  KB: Armored Princess, Katauri Interactive's and1C Company's standalone expansion to last year's Kings' Bounty: The Legend, scoring it 88% overall. Compared to several reviewers they seem to be fine with the story, but agree with most others in viewing the gameplay as the most notable feature:

Compared to the original title, Armored Princess has a far more engaging story, although the value of this game resides not its narrative, but rather in the rock solid gameplay. Think of it as a bonus, or if you prefer a more cynical approach, as an excuse for an expansion which preserves the high standards set by King's Bounty: The Legend, without adding a great deal of new features. The somehow goofy name, makes it perfectly clear that the main character is a valiant princess, capable of overcoming challenges insurmountable for most people.

Conclusion:


If the name King's Bounty rings familiar, but you didn't have the chance to play the original title, then by all means give this game a go because it won't let you down. Armored Princess is slightly better then it's predecessor, with a more attractive narrative and revamped visual effects and just enough new features to make it a standalone expansion. Fans will probably be somewhat disappointed by the overwhelming similarities with the prequel and the scarceness of novelty, but they'll quickly dismiss any complaints once they start playing.
