About the Game

King's Bounty: The Legend is an adventure game with tactical turn-based battles and role-playing elements. In a fairy tale fantasy world of fearless knights, evil mages, wise kings and beautiful princesses the player controls a hero. Leading their character through the game world, exploring it, commanding armies in battle and accomplishing various quests can mean great reward or huge defeats.

Gameplay is divided into two major sections: adventure mode and battle mode. While playing in adventure mode the gamer controls their character in real-time. With several classes available at the start of a new game, the player moves through the adventure map seeking various treasures, fighting monsters and accomplishing quests tasked to him by the local stewards. Once in battle mode the gamer assumes the role of a war chief, leading his troops in tactical turn-based combat. Battles take place on land or sea, in dungeons or castles or even in some items! The hero himself doesn't participate in the combat, but can assist his troops by casting spells or summoning different creatures.

  • Real-time (adventure) meets turn-based (battles) gameplay
  • Rich fantasy setting, storyline with a lot of twists and an unexpected ending
  • Three types of characters to choose from — Each of them with unique characteristics and abilities
  • Huge game world with dozens locations and battlefields — both on the surface and in the dungeons
  • The game world isn't static — enemies don't just sit and wait for the hero to arrive, they pursue their own aims and try to get into the player's way
  • Mac version is available in English, Russian, German, French, Spanish and Italian languages.

This is the first game in the King's Bounty series. If you like turn based army development games like Heroes of Might and Magic, this one is great. With 3 distinct types of hero to play and several difficulties, it is easy to find a play style that works for you while still maintaining effectiveness. This game has no respawn (as it should be), so learning to keep your troops alive and manage your resources is paramount to victory. The only issue I have with the game is that there is a lot of pointless running around to complete some of the quests and reinvest in troops if you have a particularly nasty encounter. Also one warning that I do not think is really a spoiler. There are "boss fights" in the game although many are avoidable. For these boss fights you CANNOT use rage. Troops and magic are fine, but not rage abilities. I am not sure why they decided to do this, but it makes heavily rage driven characters a bit tougher to play. Also, I strongly recommend investing in the reserves ability to mitigate the restock of troops issue a bit by keeping extras of your most fragile troops with you.

The game length is really solid with a lot to explore and many side quests to accomplish (almost necessary to be strong enough at the end to fight the tougher fights). Also, anyone who thinks the game is too easy, just put the game on a more challenging setting and see how fast the difficulty ramps up when you are having trouble replenishing your troops.

I highly recommend this game.

Fantastic game and a must-play for any fan of Heroes of Might & Magic. The humor is great, the challenge is decent and the game mechanic feels smooth and balanced. You can create your own strategic concepts or just go with large armies and good gear depending on the difficulty and your own desire. There's nothing bad to say about this little gem, really, so just play it.

This is a really fun, lighthearted adventure. I'm not a big fan of complex turn based strategy; the combat here is simple enough to make it easy to learn and just sophisticated enough to keep it interesting. As a mage, it gets really satisfying towards the end as you become extremely powerful. I usually prefer darker, more intense games, but this was a nice break from that. Excellent for those nights where you're just too tired for a fast paced shooter or action RPG.

Wonderfull game!
Having played HOMM a lot, I thought this game to be a spin-off before I started to play the game.
Yet, the game, somehow, is original. I cannot explain why.
It took me 100+ hrs to finish the game.
Wonderfull story. Wonderfull quests. A lot of humor. A lot of easter-eggs.
There is a drawback in this game....
The introduction to the mechanism of the game is minimal. Even reading the manual did not help a lot.
Just persevere, than you'll enter a wonderfull world full of magical beasts.
