Over dit spel

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.

A well executed hybrid of the RPG and tactical genres, King's Bounty: The Legend is an long and enjoyable game set in a high fantasy world. The story is unique and entertaining, though, it isn't anything that's going to blow your mind and stick with you for years. The character building, army building, and exploration are all very well done, however, and they have managed to seal me in for continuing on to the next game in the King's Bounty series in the future.

The story begins as you graduate from an academy of sorts and are promoted to the position of the king's Treasure Searcher. After a bit of exploration on the first couple of maps and a few starter quests the story begins to unfold and you soon find yourself battling against undead foes, horrific demons, unsavory pirates, and just about every other kind of enemy that you can imagine. I found myself pulled in by the story and each new map reignited my excitement as it brought with it new allies, treasure, and quests that rarely disappointed.

The character building aspect of the game is intuitive and works very well for allowing you to customize your hero as you see fit. At the start of the game you pick a class: Warrior, Paladin, and Mage. Each has their own skill tree which they are most efficient at gaining abilities from, though, they can also pick and choose from other trees once they have acquired the necessary experience. This means that by the end of the game you will most likely have a hybrid of sorts, having picked and chosen which skills fit your playstyle best.

As for the composition of your army, the selection is enormous. Though you can only ever have five different types of units in your army, there are dozens that you will find in your adventures that are recruitable. The leadership mechanic of the game keeps them all viable (more or less) as well. For example, imagine that your hero has a leadership skill of 5,000. This means that you could choose to take an enormously powerful unit like black dragons along with you, but as they require a leadership of 2,500, you would only be able to have two of them in that stack. Meanwhile, you could also recruit peasants, which require five leadership, and you would have a massive gathering of 1,000 of them to send crashing into your enemies' forces. By the end of the game, you'll have found your own favorite mix-and-match setup which might include knights, elves, demons, undead, pirates, and more.

I very much recommend King's Bounty: The Legend to those looking for a game that is very reminiscent of the combat and unit system of Heroes of Might & Magic, especially if they are hoping to get a little bit more of the RPG feel to their game. I spent over sixty hours in a single playthrough and, for the most part, I found myself entertained from start to finish. I will definitely be trying out the next game in the series in the near future and am excited to see what new additions and surprises it may have in store.

10/10 - Little Towns, Big Worlds and an Epic Amount of Content!

I’m way late getting to play this game but it’s still amazing even for today's standards! This game really is really withstanding the test of time. The campaign is pretty epic, and just solely finishing the campaign took me about 33 hours!! If you explore everything and complete all the quests you are looking at about 60-70+ hours of gameplay! Not too bad for just a couple bucks. I’m pleased to announce that there are about 4 more games in this series waiting for me and more to come!

The world exploration, story and turn-based grid combat come together in a brilliant fashion and really keep you captivated longer than you could anticipate! A few points to consider to maximize your enjoyment of the game!

1) The font is super small! There is a mod you can drop in the folder to increase text size; this isn’t available for the other games so take advantage of this since the story is really good. Every character and quest has some serious depth if you care to explore!

2) Until you get the hang of things try to stick to the main storyline indicated with a crown. This will ensure you stick to battles that you can win. You won’t be completing a full island at once since different levels of enemies are all around, it can be easy to mistakenly run into an unbeatable enemy.

3) Prevent frustration and use the right mouse button to click on enemies from afar. This will indicate the power level of the enemy ranging from Very Weak to Invincible! If you are wondering you can defeat enemies up to very strong but proceed at your own risk!

Overall, A MASSIVE value no matter how you look at it. It’s only $7! If you complete the campaign only you are looking at about 21 cents an hour for some fantastic gaming! Feel free to drop me a message if you can’t find the mod. I will complete the other games for sure!

Excellent game, very colorful, I can see a lot of effort and care was put into the game.
Mind you, I never played the original New World's Computing King's Bounty, so I have no idea if it's as good as this one.
But I can tell you, the game is worth every cent, and right now its super cheap, so if you are a fan of Heroes of Might and Magic game but with more roleplay elements, then I fully recommend it.

Pros
-Colorful eyecandy graphics, very detailed world
-3 classes to choose, and countless different strategies to play each time, so it's replayable
-the game rewards you well for the completed quests
-high score to keep track of your score and trying to improve on each of your run
-lots of quests and side quests
-rich with humor
-lots of units to choose from
-No major difficuilty spikes

Cons
-Some minor glitches might get you stuck
-frame drops happen very rarely but they happen, probably depends on your graphic card
-one of the biggest cons of this game is backtracking. When you have to reinforce your lost units after a tough battle, sometimes you have to walk back all the way to the beginning to reinforce your troops. It turns into busywork later in the game


It gets an 8.5/10 from me.

What is there to say about this jewel... It's everything I've ever dreamed of ever since I started playing the Heroes of Might and Magic franchise. I mean, instead of having to deal with micro-management tasks such as building improvements for a certain fort or replenishing troops to increase the defenses, in King's Bounty you only have to worry about which soldiers you're going to recruit to your army and move forward. Of course, there're certain morale penalties if you happen to mix two different kinds that don't really love each other but that's ok, as there're certain items that can help you to neutralize the negative effects. There're a whole lot of different quests to screw with your social life but no problem, you won't feel bad after you're through with it. Other than that, this game is quite random so you never know where to find certain artifact, where you can get to hire some units or what kind of enemy you're going to face, since every game that you start is different than the other. Now for the main aspects of the game: The graphics are beautiful, the soundtrack is simply awesome and the gameplay is quite fluid. This is surely a great reboot of the classical game and I'll always recommend it to anyone who ever asks me about it.

Installing the game
Off the run after the next program and save
Redo should find that the save file
~~~ Voila! You'll know Hou is able to recognize the file
Damn, I already tried to find a solution to this problem for six hours
I could not solve the problem
So I do not recommend the former King's Bounty series
Of course, if you make an'll recommend a solution
But that day is not today

There is no sense of advancement in this "game". Just continual, pointless grinding.
I would spend more time writing a more detailed review, but then the game-designers would claim even more of my life.
If you like excruciatingly boring games, this is the one. :P

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.

Delighful quirky but rock solid fantasy strategy rpg that anyone who is a fan of the classic HOMM games will love. I hear the sequel is even better but that doesn't mean you should miss out on the start of a great series.

This game is complex and encourages you to use different tactics, while still being very user-friendly. You'll immediatly get absorbed into this fairy-tale world, wich offers a variety of (beautiful) environments. The game contains both humorous and serious moments and the different characters that you meet are colorful and original.
King's Bounty: The Legend is pretty long (I spent around 85 hours into the campaign) when you want to do everything, but it's really worth it and, as stated above, doesn't get boring because you'll always encounter new environments and characters.
I had a blast with this game and I can only hope that you will, too.

I never tried a King's Bounty game until a few days ago. I now regret not having discovered this treasure earlier. While only a handful of hours into the game, thus far it has already surpassed all expectations and the regard I had for HOMM 1-6 and Disciples 3. If you liked any of of the HOMM iterations or Disciples, you will appreciate King's Bounty: The Legend. My only regret is in buying the game standalone instead of a bundle which I'll now buy as still a better bargain than grabbing the expansions singularly.

Enjoy Friends :)

EDIT: To give a bit mroe detail the game, I come to King's Bounty with serious HOMM experiece and a bit of Discpiples. IMO, the HOMM and Disciples are grreat series' but they all fall down at the point of eventually aving spent hours upon hours to build huge armies only to find the AI has outdone you. King's Bounty so far has enough in the smaller side quests to be rewarding enough to give the above review while avoiding "Enemy Heroes" while I build up my Mage in readiness to take over the world ;]

In summary, If you haven't played the series before but enjoy the "HOMMi=-like" subgenre as I saw it, you will love this game.

One of the best games I've ever played!

King's Bounty: The Legend is a RPG with tactical battles. The battle system is reminiscent of Heroes of Might and Magic, but King's Bounty is not a strategy game, like Heroes. Instead, you explore the (huge) game world at your own pace, without having to worry about some opponent getting stronger if you take your time.

You explore the maps (in real time) to gather resources and troops, then defeat monsters that are roaming the map, or guarding some chest... or even just waiting for you to try to kill them. The game doesn't have many mandatory battles, each enemy you defeat gives you experience, so you need to kill them to get enough XP to level up your hero. When you get close to some enemy, the game changes to a hexagonal grid, and places your troops vs the enemy troops in a turn-based strategic combat. There's LOTS of strategy involved here, BTW. You can't just move your troops casually in the battlefield, this WILL get you killed quite fast! Instead, you have to think before moving each troop, even ONE badly placed unit can mean your defeat.

Just like the first 3 Heroes games, you don't use your hero directly in battles. Instead, you control your troops, but can use magics and skills of your hero once per turn. The hero is VERY important, since a well placed magic can turn the tide of a battle in your favor.

The game is very extensive. The map is huge, there are LOTS of optional battles, a big variety of troops for you to acquire, a robust skill tree for your hero (that includes some passive skills to make your troops better), a simple marriage system and tons of side-quests scattered around. The game is HUGE. While you can beat it in 50 or so hours, you can play it for 100 hours and still have something to do and some enemy to kill. Not only that, but the game has a random placement of enemies, and 3 different heroes to choose, so there's a nice replay value.

Lastly, the technical aspects aren't bad. The graphics are beautiful (with a big variety of textures in most environments), your units are very detailed and the game has some very good looking special effects (spells, detailed shadows, bloom). The sounds are very good too, and each unit has its own grunts and taunts. Also, the game has some AMAZING musics by Lind Erebros. Each map has its own playlist of songs, and they usually mix well with the environments of the map you are in.


Anyway, King's Bounty is amazing. It has some minor flaws, like a cruel difficulty spike and lots of backtracking (specially to replenish troops), its not a friendly game towards newbies (good troop units aren't finite, you can't reset your skill trees allocation without restarting the game, etc). Also, the story is very forgettable, and the dialogs are usually very stupid. But the flaws don't hurt the game. Its a huge game, with LOTS of things to do and huge maps to explore. Its also slow paced, so you don't have to rush, like in the Heroes series.

I QUITE recommend this game. Just don't expect to have a casual stroll in here. ^^
