Key Features

7,000,000 players
In PvP mode you will encounter real opponents who don't necessarily fight by the rules. The game’s automatic selection system will match you up against an equal opponent from anywhere in the world.

Ratings and Clans
Defeat your foes to climb to the top of the ratings. Siege enemy garrisons to procure elements with which to craft runes to enhance your army. Join a clan and work together to earn an aura, which improves your hero’s leadership.

Turn-based Combat
The more you fight, the more valuable resources you will acquire with which to craft your hero’s gear. Plan carefully how to use combat spells, taking into account their duration and cooldown. Whether fighting your friends’ armies or hordes of various creatures, randomly generated obstacles on the battlefield will keep battles exciting and unpredictable.

Star of Balance
Assemble an invincible army by calling to your banners all sorts of creatures, and use their abilities to emerge triumphant from any fight. The game features over 50 creatures with 5 different combat styles: archers are effective against healers and mages, healers fare better against mages and defenders, while defenders have an advantage over warriors and archers… The abilities of all creatures are exceptionally balanced.

Finally, all the grossness you traditionally would find in the iOS App Store infecting the increasingly devalued Steam catalog. Ugh.

Was really enjoying this game. Excluding the +- 5 levels pvp. (3 levels would have been fine, as 5 levels is about double army size so unwin/loseable)

Then they changed the 'food' rules - basically making it pay to play each day! (Or put in a ~14hr+ grind each day)

The game is bugged!!! If your still looking to play it though, go play the Kings Bounty: The Legend or Armored Princess... The game is VERY VERY similar to the Heroes of Might and Magic games.

Awesome game but russian players that have spent 500-1000$ and played for 2 years just ruin this game...

My win ratio before I quit playing was about 1 win : 15 loss... And I did spend over 100$ on this game.. And those wins were a total annihilation of the other guy because he was much lower level than me...

Worst pay2win game I've ever played =(

Didn't play this game for long and I didn't need to. It was a bad game that has better versions of it's style on tablet e.g. the Dragon Age tablet game. So I would say if you like these style game just get a Tablet.

This King's Bounty truly is a shadow of its former self. I enjoyed the other King's Bounty games, but this one is pretty sad and not nearly as enjoyable. If you enjoy turn based strategy games, I would recommend any of the other King's Bounty games.

First things first: I love the King's Bounty series. I own all the games on that other, DRM-free site, and two games over here. I have hundreds of hours put into them, collectively. When I read a positive, recent review of this game, I thought I'd give it a try. I lasted only 12 minutes. During that time, I was nagged to log in and share things over Facebook NINE TIMES. In TWELVE MINUTES. Kill something? Share it on FB! Find a component? Share it on FB! Your wizard cast a spell? Why not share it on FB? Your warrior had an itch on his groin during combat and used the elven healer's pointy left ear to scratch it? Hey, I have an idea - you could share it on FB!

At one point, I was actually informed of a feature that could ONLY be unlocked if I logged into FB. That was enough for me.

Seriously. Ten times. In twelve minutes. It's like the first time I discovered my father's box of Playboy magazines, only not nearly as pleasant. Not recommended.

This game could be good or bad depending if you like similar type of games. I am a free player never purchased anything. This game is defenitely not a Pay-2-Win game. I have been playing this game for over 3 months now and played many in game hours across different platforms using Facebook.

I strongly recommend you to think strategically and have a lot of patience!

In order to win in PvP, you either invest real money OR a lot of time. Everything in the game is craftable and upgradeable for free given enough time. If you have patience to grind through, you should be fine. My PvP record is quite good 31 wins and 5 losses. For those who find PvP difficult, they usually level up too fast and did not upgrade everything. Be patient, this is a social game. You will need a lot of friends to help you unlock the wanted missions. Those missions will give you free units. Daily quests will also give you free units. I believe you should have everything upgraded eventually if you are patiently enough. That should take 3 years maybe. This is a true long grind. Play this when you want to kill time.

Watered down, uninteresting version of King's Bounty: The Legend and its nice sequels. This started as Facebook game (which is where I tried it initially, long enough to see all the features) with microtransactions and a wait-or-pay-to-play system. Facebook login is not required to play unless you want any of the sharing features or cross-platform play with browser and mobile. Typical for this kind of game, you can expect constant "share this with your friends!" prompts and an unskippable mission to send gifts to friends, and so on.

The combat system isn't as interesting as the true King's Bounty games: gone are the three hero classes and the skill trees. No mana management, you have to purchase scrolls for each spellcasting. You don't lose troops, you just pay gold to resurrect them. Units can always move their full movement and attack or fire. Units are missing some interesting abilities they have in the "real" games. Side-note: animations are also inferior-looking and don't have the wacky character of the originals.

The overworld map shows its flash game origins and is a far cry from the gorgeous 3D maps of the original games. The quests are given in the usual dry facebook game style, and I haven't detected the trademark humor of KB:TL either.

Only redeeming factor would be maybe the presence of a PvP option, or the simple progression system which allows you to upgrade the stats of your units, as well as a simple crafting system.

Overall unless you're really interested in the social aspects or you're desperate to play this on your phone, I don't see a good reason why you'd play this instead of buying King's Bounty: The Legend. If you don't have it yet wait for the next bundle where you'll be able to get it for under 4$. (Google the "Wars of Ages" bundle for instance, should be up until mid-january 2013.)

At its core this game is a Facebookgame with micropayments.

It pesters you to share your Missionrewards with friends on your Facebookpage after every damn mission.
You get equippment by gathering small pieces after every kill, and the Tutorial is one of those "klick exactly what i tell you to for 10 minutes" things.

The Artstyle is all over the place and the Animations for the Charakters look very unnatural, after you kill a unit the camera zooms closer in an atempt to show a deathanimation, but by the time the zoom in starts its already over so all it does is zoom in and out on a charakter that does not move.

Iam not seeng alot of positive things in this game that would set it above other hextacticgames

but at the end of the Day the game is free, so you should give it a try and see if you like it. Sadly i dont

This game is full of mictrotransactions.
In every battle you lose some of your creatures. So you need to replenish them.
And it's somewhat limited. You need to pay or wait for hours.
Also, after some time it get's boring.
I would suggest you to buy other King's Bounty game.

PS: I've played this game for hours on Facebook.

I love the King's Bounty games, I really do.
But King's Bounty: Legions just doesn't feel right. All of the elements that made the previous games interesting were removed or tweaked to provide the most bland and generic experience possible to the player.

In this game, there is no specialisation, you can spend your gold on marginal upgrades for units and spells, but cost scaling and level requirements for these upgrades is made in such a way that you can't just decide to dump all your gold into spells and rely on them. Especially since you can't learn spells, you have no mana, you have to buy scrolls, every time you use a spell you need to use a scroll.

When it comes to army building, there isn't much to it unless you are willing to pay, you have access to some basic units from shops, and a few advanced units as quest rewards, but only enough to show you what these units can do and encourage you to purchase more at the real money shop. You just don't get the satisfaction of doing your best with limited resources like you did in the previous games, especially since morale mechanics and most of the units special effects were removed.

Finally, you don't have to select your battles like in the previous games, here you simply progress from one area to another with the ability to grind when you feel you aren't strong enough to take on the next challenge.

The only thing that's left from the previous games is the turn-based gameplay, which just isn't enough to hold the game together without the strategic elements that the previous games had.

too many in app purchases. poor camera view points. draggy storyline. complicates a simple turn-based strategy game for nothing.

A very simplistic turn-based combat game, too simplistic, nothing special going for it, there's many older games that pull off the old grid based combat so much better. The main problem with King's Bounty: Legions is there's a lack of elements which makes grid combat interesting such as distance on ranged attacks, obstructions, and positioning! The game will also persistently bug you about sharing things to Facebook, I feel it sort of belongs there amidst all the other games that require you to fall into zombie state to play.

“Amazing job.”

I hope that's sarcasm Kotaku, or an unfinished paragraph.
