An extremely fun and cheap little RTS. The gameplay is identical to Warcraft 3 but if you are a strategy fan you would definitely want to consider picking this up on sale.

Pre-Release Review
So cheap, so fun, so traditionally RTS/Strategy. But with slight twists, like multiple maps. It's really fun game for how cheap it is, really worth the investment! You'll get a lot of fun out of it, plus a good challenge.
It's extremely traditional though, which is what I liked about it.
I'd whine about the dated graphics, but hell, I still love to load up Age of Empires and have a damn good thwarting, so it doesn't bother me at all!
The units are what you'd expect, which is helpful. The story and the humour is quite good.
Overall, it's totally worth more than what you're going to pay for it, and you're going to have a great time.

Everything BC Kings does some other RTS game (usually Warcraft III) did before, and I am hard-pressed to find anything completely original in this title that would warrant a purchase.The theme should have brought about at least something innovative, but this is really Warcraft III with dinosaurs. The gameplay can be enjoyable on occasion, providing a solid RTS experience, but there is a host of ancillary features that are either broken or missing completely. No attack-moves. No online multiplayer. A short campaign. Annoying multi-level maps. Translation issues. There are just too many little problems in BC Kings that add up to one big headache. The lack of innovation seals the deal: there are way too many other RTS games just like BC Kings to make it stand out. Overall 5/10.

Way back in 1997, an extremely well designed RTS game, Age of Empires, blew many players away. Granted the gameplay at the time was similar to the ‘big two’ being Command and Conquer and Warcraft, it stands out due to its storyline as it ties in playing out our history. Personally, I loved it because you get the play out the Stone Age as no other games done this effectively since. Fast forward to 2008, another RTS game arrived where you can play out the Stone Age (with some twists) and filled the landscape with dinosaurs – and who doesn’t like dinosaurs? This game, BC Kings, whilst kept on the traditional RTS formula (explore / build / conquer), it added some RPG elements and encourages exploration as well. A decent game considering it’s an indie title however I wished there were more dinosaurs to play with.

Overall, the game was a blast to play from start to finish with some twists and turns along the way. Yes it does feel like a rip-off from Age of Empires however it’s obvious that there’s a lot of love and care poured into this game. The UI is nicely designed with beautiful pictures that resembles cavemen paintings splashed throughout is an example of devotion. However I praise the developers for trying out something new to the ever-so overused RTS formula where it encourages you to explore, have multiple maps, a spray of RPG and even has a third person view option (well…one mission has this). Some of these innovations plays well and others not so however that’s not to discredited their efforts. It’s a light hearted RTS that’s very enjoyable to play until the very end. Let’s put it this way, when I think of that title, it places a smile in my face and that’s a good thing.

8 / 10

Its a fun quirky strategy game that is fun to play but I bought the game on sale when it was much cheaper. Definitely do not buy it for full price, compared to other RTS games that are made today it is not as good but it brings some of that old-school RTS feel with it and is good for gamers that remember the challenging mechanics and playstyles of old RTS games. It has an interesting campaign and a fun variety of units but the graphics are dated and the online is all but dead. If its on sale though its not a bad deal.
