What a great game, the developers ideas for the game have been outstanding and they have done a wonderful job of achieving their goal. There are still a few minor problems but the dedicated team of developers are fast at responding and patching problems when they arise. The game has a variety of game play to satisfy everyone from single player campaigns and conflicts to full blown siege warfare to zombie survival modes. I would recommend this game to any person who loves to play RTS games. Congrats to the Devs they have outdone themselves once again.

This game is really buggy and was just not a fun experience for me. It's graphics are pretty ♥♥♥♥ for a 2016 game. I just refunded the game after 40 minute playtime. It's a shame because the game looked cool, but don't buy it. It's not worth 20 bucks.

The Game is fun and you can have a balanced economy and military power with the entertaiment of build great walls and defend you kingdom. Good Job for now guys. I will expect some graphics improvement in the units.

way too buggy. they claim to be patching but the updates have done nothing in the lines of making this game playable after you start building an army, the first start of a battle dropped me to 3 FPS the second the AI started attacking.

besides me ♥♥♥♥♥ing, this isnt a good RTS at all.

The base buliding thats avaliable is menial.

the AI is downright ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and has a problem naviagting to point A from point B

the whole trading card thing is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t. why give these buffs for an RTS that can be extrememly overpowering, especially online.

I'm not a fan of RTS games, but what the game has to offer is really great!

Short Version
Well made Progression system, cliche but perfectly fitting races, exciting battles, Freaking Zombies! usually don't like those, but here they fit great into the game! rather small dev team, that does a damn amazing job IMHO
Rating 9/10

long Version

Races

in KW2:B you can choose between 3 distinct races to fight with: Humans, Orcs and Elves. They might be what you would expect from each race, but that's not really an issue as they made them really well!
Humans are pretty basic and medieviel-ish, except they can breed FREAKING DRAGONS! and can train mages, otherwise what you would expect (each race has their heroes, Dwarven "Mercenaries", Mages and Dragons.
Orcs - Quantity over Quality - they are really dumb but that makes them fun to play! it's a bit hard getting used to them, as they infinitely spawn at your base (can be toggled) but once you got into it it's relatively easy.
Elves - Quality over Quantity - these guys are a bit tricky, as you need to "build" trees in order to build Buildings on it, but they have some neat advantages like a wood gathering spirit.

Progression

Each race can unlock new buildings, Units, Abilities etc..... (permanently with materials - will cover later) and for each upgrade you make you can see your tribe grow in the main menu, which is a neat feature, although i haven't recognized much difference on single upgrades - but are clearly noticeable when doing more.
Once your done upgrading, you can buy Battle cards to aid you in your fights. Cards range from Resources, to units and even timed bonuses.
Materials for crafting these Upgrades or Cards can be gathered by completing matches (win or lose) beating every 3 waves in survival, trading or simply by logging in each day - which is IMO a great idea to keep people interested in the game.

Game Modes
KW2:B has a few game modes BUT keeps growing! currently has 5 game modes:
- Capture town flag: Get your Army through the Enemy gates and capture the Town center to beat them.
- Total Annihilation: Destroy and murder everything from that player to beat them.
- Capture the flag: there is a flag in the middle of the map, you know the drill!
-Casualties of War: just murder as many Enemies as possible to win - has a set limit to win
- Zombie Survival: like capture town flag, except you have to defend it agains masses of incoming Zombies! pretty hard especially with humans as you can't really get to stone and gold with them.

Battles
Battles start relatively fast in KW2:B and can be really exciting and pretty frustrating if you just wanna take things easy. But once you got everything set and rush into **** with your team it's a whole lot of fun! But Beware! Killed people can TURN!! so, if you just leave the corpses around they could suddenly stand up and start clawing at you! ways to deal with that fu***rs is by burning them (dead or living.....again) or by tasking your workers to scavenge the corpses.
It can especially be fun to let a few peasants die near the enemy camp just to see them turn! >:)

Multiplayer

Haven't gone into this (cause i think i'm to bad for this :P) but it has PvP and PvE. You can also do a Zombie Survival run with a Friend!

Dev Team
I usually be veeeery careful on who to call a good dev, but those very few guys working on making the Game great are really amazing! the Game tend to have some issues and when this arises the devs jump on this and try their damn hardest fixing them. They are also really well present in the Forums and are up for new things and suggestions.

Overall a great RTS Game that WILL grow much better, I'm sure of it!

to be fair this was an interesting game to me i played this game back when unit path finding couldnt find its own ♥♥♥♥ in the dark it was fun for awhile but i personally never got that into it but i can say it has improved since i started but i feel it still needs some polishing up like in a co-op AI battle other than a custom game i think there should be an option for AI difficulty... biggest issue ive had... im slow at start and cant cope with the siege rush 15 mins to game thats just me....

as for do i recommend this game? yes and no
yes because it has potential and the campaign i found enjoyable

no because i still find it cluncky

A hidden gem!
Very good stratergy game! What the world was waiting for =)!

I'm a massive fan of stratergy, I have AOE, C and C, Ashes of the singularity, COH and many more.... This game will never match my hours spent on C and C back in 2014, but this game really holds it's own, since buying it I really have become hooked.

Pro:
It has an element of middle eart to it - Orcs, dwarfs, people and elves.
It has freaking zombies in it!
It has a very good tower defence element to it - people can go on walls, you really feel sieged in this game
The level up system keeps you wanting more, and keeps you exploring.
A free ad-on! (Not like every other game out there trying to rip you off
It has heros, unique abilities and unlockables (Really keeps you interested and very well balanced)
Very fun storyline (Even if the speaker and the narative is a bit cheesy at times)
Very cheap! 13 pounds for this game is a bargain.

Cons:
Not a big community.. yet! (Need you to buy it!)
Some lag issues (But this could be my computer) seems to struggle when you select a large amount of units
but remember that this is like 200/300 in size, so it's a tad understandable
Diversity of multiplayer maps (They need more maps! and ways to mix up formation)- But the developers seem dedicated to working on this game so I guess this is coming).

Just need more of you to notice this gem and to build a strong community of gamers. They really are working on this game. They have another update coming next week... definetly worth the 13 pounds.
