Informace o hře

Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms is the next chapter in the Heretic Kingdoms saga and takes place 20 years after the events of Kult: Heretic Kingdoms. It’s an epic adventure with challenging gameplay, a gripping storyline and enchanting graphics. In this isometric action RPG, the player takes on the role of the Devourer, a demon that swallows the souls of the dead and then brings them back into the mortal realm as his puppets. It's up to him to either thwart a major threat and save the world, or to plunge it into complete disaster…


After four of the five members of a secret order known as Penta Nera were murdered, their souls were swallowed by a pack of Devourers. Since then, they move around the mortal realm as the puppets of the Devourers, as a demonic Penta Nera, and ravage the land in search of the essence of souls.
The fifth member of the order, bent on revenge, makes use of the only way to stop them and summons another Devourer: this one is different from his siblings. He can absorb multiple souls, but sometimes becomes more human or schizophrenic, the more souls he absorbs. He can stop the demonic Penta Nera and save the world, or he can plunge it into complete disaster...

Variabilní soubojový systém
Nové mechaniky
Estetika lokací
Rozsáhlý a detailní svět


Crafting a jiné nedodělané prvky
Občas stereotypní
Zatím nic moc příběh

Ve shrnutí si myslím, že se bratrům Slovákům tato hra povedla. Jistě, měla svých několik chybek. Druhá kniha snad přinese konečně pořádný děj namísto pouhého tahání za ruku širým světem. Myslím však, že pokud v plánovaném pokračování těchto několik nedostatků odstraní a a navíc zlepší to, co už teď bylo dobré, máme se na co těšit.

Hope it goes well

This is a nice game overall. Story is not bad. Character is amusing. Excellent voice-acting. Music is good. Visual is okay.
To put it simply, this game is worth trying. As for the cons, I will put it in two main points as I see these are quite important.

  1. Game-play. This is not at all a problem for me. I enjoy it as it is. However, I think this has to be warned. The game-play is different from Diablo and Torchlight. I can see that people expect something similar when they dive into the game. The answer is 'no'. The game-play is a lot slower. As a gamer who has play all of those games, I enjoy it with no complaint though.

  2. This is an important point. The game is unfinished, as in the story-line. It's just 'Book I: Devourer of Souls'. There is an continuation. And there seems to be a problem of insolvency. Not sure how it goes. You can check the community hub for more information. But I hope they pull through, this is a fantastic game.

I recommend the game nonetheless.

NOTE: I'm still playing this game, and haven't finished the first book yet, I'll probably update this review as soon as I've finished my first playthrough of book 1.
Also, I'm trying to keep this as spoiler-free as possible, so some things may be worded quite vaguely. My apologies for that.

Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms is one of the most interesting games I've ever played. The gameplay is similar to that of Diablo 3, in that you have the same camera perspective and you basically spam your abilities to kill enemies. However, this game does it with a simple twist, the ability to move between two realms at will.

What this simple mechanic does, is that you actually need to think whenever you're fighting against a group of enemies, as some of them are exclusive to one of either realms. I thoroughly enjoyed battling a boss, and using this to my advantage.

The story of the game has been pretty good so far, and the characters that you control are quite interesting. The fact that your characters have their very own story adds a huge amount of replayability to the game which is really nice.

Despite all the good points though, some players may not enjoy the game that much due to the rather slow progression in stats and power, I haven't had any trouble with enemies on normal mode yet, but you don't feel very powerful either, since you'll die quickly if you stay within the range of your enemies' attacks. Do take note that I play a ranged character, it is possible that melee characters do not suffer from this issue.

I personally believe that the slow progression is kind of nice. It really is a great feeling when you finally level up, like you really accomplished something. And usually you do notice a change in power due to the scaling as you invest skill points into skills or passives.

Graphics-wise the game is absolutely gorgeous, particle effects in combat are not over the top and flow nicely. The environmental art within the game is great too. Alongside the music and narrative it really immerses yourself within the game.

One should most definitely buy this game if they enjoy a good story with a large amount of side-quests and simple, yet mechanically interesting combat.

If you enjoyed the Diablo III Campaign, buy this.

The game is amazing... The combat system is rather unique, you can select with wich character you will handle a battle and you can switch character on a whim, you can do interedting combo if you used the system wisely.
The crafting is simple but efficient.
There is some interesting puzzle in the game and you need to alternate between the real world and the shadow world to find the solution to some of them.
The graphic are pretty nice and there is really a nice atmosphere tot the game.
I would recommend that game anytime.

After some embittering issues with their publisher, Games Farm has re-acquired control of their IP - including their classic Kult: Heretic Kingdoms. Rewarding customers with more game instead of a paywall was how they decided to celebrate.

Any dev who puts their fans first will always be a winner to me.
