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.

King's Bounty is one of the most charming games I've played. For an extensive review of the entire series, my blog: http://waltermstewart.wordpress.com/2013/01/15/kings-bounty-series-review, for a condense review of this game, read on.

This is the first entry in the series and it is well worth the current listing price, but it frequently goes on sale (at least 3 times a year if I recall, also available in a bundle pack if I'm not mistaken). This game is an adventure/exploration game in a generic fantasy world following all the common tropes. The primary difference between this game's lore and the world you are already familiar with is the sense of humor the writers have. If you take the time to read the text (no voice overs), you will be rewarded with the occasional typo (originally from Russian), but more frequently a wonderful lore based joke, parodying modern fantasy lore.

The battles and strategy within are quite fun, and the game progresses reasonably, but it doesn't ruin the experience and shouldn't prevent you from playing this game.

If you like RPGs, quest driven games, turn based or grid based strategies, I highly recommend this game.

Wonderful mix of RPG and Turn-Based Strategy. Numerous creatures to choice (many of them with unique abilities) and over 50 spells gives you huge variety in tactics. Fairy-tale style in story and graphics. Good replayability. Highly recommend.

Terribly addicting game for either those who lost many hours playing Heroes, or anyone who likes nice RPG games... Many hours of interesting gameplay, nice combat and colourful visuals...

As a downside I'd mention that there are some unbalanced abilities and impossible encounters (probably for later) and bad translation... But nothing too serious...

A very fun RPG/turn based game! It's translated from another language so some dialogue is a bit off, other than that its an excellent game in this genre.

King's Bounty is the Heroes of Might and Magic I've always wanted to play, but never knew it. The key difference? King's Bounty is a single player game. The Map screen is not turn-based, but real time; You're not managing any army of heroes and castles, just the one hero. But in exchange you get richer character development, as well as stories and quests; More of an RPG experience.

Presentation; The Tutorial is adequate, and there's more story then you're probably expecting. The UI is not quite as good as I remember from HoMM games, but quite playable.

Gameplay; The Combat is basically the same as from HoMM; But the Map screen being simpler and less managerial means you can focus more on the combat. And if you find yourself in over your head, you can always fall back and rebuild your army, without it costing you turns that the enemy will grow in strength during.

Visuals; The graphics quality is more than adequate, and the aesthetic, while not quite as stylized as HoMM was, works fine. My only complaint would be that some of the combat animations are a bit slow, and unskippable.

Sounds; The sounds are average. Little voice acting, which may disappoint some, for how much text there is in the story.

In conclusion; While lacking multiplayer, King's Bounty offers a more fun single player experience, in my opinion.
