King's Bounty: Dark Side - Preview @ Chalgyr

by Couchpotato, 2014-07-12 05:46:05

Chalgyr took the time to write a new preview on his blog for King's Bounty: Dark Side.

King's Bounty is a hybrid strategy/RPG title that brings turn-based combat on a hexagon grid with a variety of role-playing hooks (experience, money, items that can be outfitted and a skill tree to customize your character's strengths) - basically checking all of the boxes I look for in a title like this. King's Bounty has always had a few unique tricks up its sleeve, usually wrapped up in bright, pleasant graphics and one of my favorite soundtracks to a game to date. This latest iteration turns the story around. Instead of being a paladin or wizard looking to protect the human race from vile orcs and demons, you are in fact the leader of the different orcish, demonic and vampiric hordes. The end result is a fun, deep game that never takes itself too seriously and is absolutely worth playing.
