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.

Despite the dated and simple graphics (and the music tracks not appealing to me), this game turned out to be quite fun to play. Be prepared to restart some stages a few times as it is all too easy to lose a unit that "must" survive to complete a quest.
BC Kings has some really good design innovation elements, but not all of these are flawlessly implemented. If you are looking for a more polished product that has some similar gameplay elements - look at Warcraft, Warcraft II, Warcraft III.
However the setting for BC Kings is quite unique and the whole Neanderthal setting with cavemen and dinosaurs has a certain quirky appeal to it. With a revamp of the artwork and graphics, some voice-overs and a bit of refinement this game would certainly have more appeal and value.
Overall as it stands you get a game that is fun to play, but it is very much a diamond in the rough.

Great game, especially for the low price tag! It gets a little laggy when you start stacking troops. Me and my friend colletively had around 500 troops and several hundred buildings, which caused our games to crash.


Still a great game through that, a lot of replayability!

If you really want a good stragety game get Age Of Empires or Rise of Nations. Theyre way better than this BS. Was only a dollar so im not that mad.
