    Whether or not you will enjoy Konung 2 and any other games in the series depends on how you will make your approach. If you're expecting an oldschool RPG ready to smash Baldur's Gate out of its place, you'll be very disappointed. If, however, you apporach it as if it was a low budget indie RPG made by enthusiastic people, you'll begin to see things that high expectations would not allow you to.

    The Konung games are pretty old and low budget titles. They're not terribly great from a functionality POV and they're not really great from the perspective of writing either.

    However, there aren't many RPGs with a Scandinavian theme, so if you want some of the specific legends and motifs packed into a game, Konung's your best bet. There are also some extra and unique gameplay elements, like village management, that you can hardly see in other RPGs.

    At the end of the day, I do recommend the game(s) to everyone, with the warning that they may not become favorites anytime soon. Be ready to get used to some clunky controls, in exchange for a very original setting, well made art and fascinating enemies.

    Finally, don't pay much attention to the low review scores you find on Metacritic. The game barely got reviewed enough anyway. If you really feel like not taking a risk, just wait for a discount. Hopefully, the game sells at least enough for the publishers to consider adding Konung 1 to Steam. I'd really like to play that one again.


    **** TIP! To make sure you don't abandon the game because it feels unfair ****
    Konung 2 is not a terribly hard game but it's not an easy game either. Its difficulty can strike at you in many forms, from having to deal with a very powerful enemy to not being able to raise enough money to get yourself healed. If you want a nice introduction to the game, choose Ratibor as starting character. You will get two extra party members which will make battles easy and a nice sum of gold to start with. The starting stats are great too. The forests near the village will make you fight some easy enemies which will be enough of a battle tutorial. Most importantly, you'll already be a konung of your village, so you'll get free healing and item repairs, and the chance to build stuff around.

    I've only played for about 11 and a half hours thus far, but I can already tell you that this is a great game.

    A little background. I've been playing RPGs for over 20 years. It is my favorite genre of games. That said, Konung 2 is a bit of a mix between a simulation and an RPG.

    Don't get me wrong. There are plenty of RPG elements to sink your teeth into here. There are 6 unique heroes with their own backgrounds and stats, stats to customize upon leveling up, a bunch of skills that impact gameplay in different ways, inventory management for every member of your party (yes, it is party-based. You can have up to 8 other characters join your cause.), magical items to find and an extensive loot system, a bunch of side quests, treasure hunting, a bunch of maps to explore and more! It's a very meaty RPG if that's what you're looking for.

    As for the simulation side, it's well done in that aspect as well. You control various villages and can build them as you see fit. You can collect tributes from the villages, build blacksmith forges, shipyards, a barracks, etc. You can find people to work these jobs and they will do them based on their various skills. Eventually you want to build up some strong villages so you can recruit some fit warriors to help your cause.

    Overall, this game is a hidden gem. I'm very surprised it's as good as it is, given there is little information about it online.

    Oh, one final thing. Do not play this game if you want fast-paced action. This game takes a high level of patience to get the most out of. You won't be slaying hordes of enemies right from the start. You've really got to spend some time to work your way up the ladder to become a respectable hero and leader of men. In my 11 hours, I've barely killed anything, that's how challenging the game is thus far. But I've still loved every minute.

    Highly recommended for something a bit different and for lovers of RPGs.

    I like old school isometric RPGs but I really don't like this one. I've tried to like it but its just directionless, feels half finished, buggy (especially the pathfinding) and doesnt seem to have any enjoyment factor to it, regret buying.
