If you want to get Armored Princess, GET THIS GAME! Crossworlds has an updated version of the entire campaign of AP, so there's no point in getting Armored Princess instead of Crossworlds.

First of all: Crossworlds = enhanced Armored Princess for PC gamers. The stand-alone Armored Princess is intended for Mac users, since there's no Crossworlds for Mac.

Secondly: this is probably the best King's Bounty there is. It has all the good stuff - pleasurable grind, silly-but-fun storyline, plenty of different units and spells etc. without the negatives of the later games (i.e. game-breaking bugs, excessive back-and-forth-running, so-so balance).

+ nice atmosphere
+ constant feeling of progress
+ plenty to do (50+ hours per playthrough easily)
+ holds its grip until the very end

+/- lots and lots of text, but it's skimmable and light-heartedly funny

Highly recommended!

FIRST: Everyone is correct, purchase 'King's Bounty: Crossworlds" as it includes the base game and both expansions for $5 more than the standard edition but $5 less than the platinum edition.

SECOND: Actually really enjoy this game so far, especially considering I'm just now diving into strategy games. The mechanics take a little bit to figure out but after about an hour you should have a pretty firm grasp of what does what. The graphics are pretty darn good if a little cartoony but that doesn't bother me any. I really like the mix of strategy/fantasy rpg. It's actually a lot of fun, sorta like playing fantasy chess if you will. There doesn't seem to be much of any voice acting, again not a problem for me but just be prepared to do a lot of reading to get the back story and follow what is going on.

Would definitely recommend a buy if you like these kind of games. I'm terrible at and have always hated strategy games but this one is pretty darn fun. Also my first time reviewing a game on steam so, that should tell you something.

King's bounty plays a lot like Heroes of Might and Magic, whenever you have an encounter on the overworld you have stacked units on a hex board with turn based combat. You get a dragon that can cast a spell per turn (increased turn cooldown depending which spell you choose) and your hero character (the armored princess) can cast a spell per turn. Your hero character equips armor and weapons that change your hero's stats. The hero isn't involved in combat other than spells but your stats are attributed to your units in combat. Overall King's bounty is one of my favorite games and it is oddly addicting.

King's Bounty Crossworlds IS Armored Princess, with more content, features, and orcs. If you're buying, just get the Crossworlds edition for turnbased, light hearted, epic questing.

Absolutely awesome game. The Kings Bounty series remains one of my favorites of all time, and one of the only series I'll actually replay through several times. It's an exploration game where you lead armies around the world, picking up relics and leveling up your character. It plays similarly to games like Heroes of Might and Magic, but the major difference (and the reason I like this series better), is you are encouraged and rewarded for exploring. There is no turn counter while you explore the map, putting you in a race against other towns or enemies. Explore as much as you want and roam everywhere without fear that your enemy is building up their army while you have fun. If you run into an area where the enemy is too strong for you, just explore somewhere else and come back once you gain some levels and spells.

Like Heroes of Might and Magic? Want to just control a hero and not worry about that pesky city building, or enemies taking them from you? Want to go on an epic adventure with an army and combat like in the HoMM games? This game is what you should buy, then! It's the HoMM experience without city building, but more features in other areas, where you go around hiring allies for your army, to engage in combat in that exciting HoMM way!

Similar to Heroes of Might and Magic, King's Bounty will keep you coming back if you are strategy fan. It does away with city building, and focuses on combat, hero building, and troop selection. Add a pet dragon that can turn the tide of battle, numerous artifacts you can find or buy, a varied pool of troops to select from, and a well thought out hero skill tree, King's Bounty Crossworlds is fantastic.

Highly recommended if you like fantasy strategy games that are challenging, and doubly recommended if you loved Heroes of Might and Magic.

This game is just too pretty for words, and it runs very well on my almost 5 year old laptop on mostly high settings. Heck, even on all low settings the game is still beautiful.

Now to the gameplay: The combat plays very much like the HoMM series, yet is still quite unique and diverse. I'm someone who finds it rather difficult getting into HoMM-like games because I love that series so much, but this game... is so unique and fun that I can't help but love everything about it. I love the free-roaming, the easy to use interface, the sea faring and quirky humour. I love the different units and all their special abilities, I lovelovelove my dragon which is so useful! Even the music is breathtakingly beautiful and sets the mood so well.

This game is definitely worth the price. I grabbed it on a sale hoping to god it would run okay-ish on my laptop. It does and is worth every cent!

This version of King's Bounty is the same as the armored Princess but 2 more stories to go along with the game. The Cross worlds is much more better cause it a remake of the orginal one but there more spells and troops you can choose from.

Probably my most favourite strategy games of all times and I've played them all. Thanks to King's Bounty I found a new joy of playing videogames again. On the surface it's a HOMAM ripoff of course but beneath it it's got so much more life, vibrancy, sparkle and new ideas than the ever more listless iterations of HOMAM it has completely overshadowed its old teacher. The Legend, and especially it's perfected sequel Armored Princess, boasts THE best and most enjoyable tactical HOMAM-like combat of all games ever made, no contest.

Unfortunately the publisher decided to milk the series dry and came up with two more sequels, Warriors of the North and Dark Side. Both games have the same exact engine with very few innovations. They're basically glorified custom campaings made in the Map Editor. The sparkle and magic are mostly gone and what we got was lifeless, dull grind, designed without much care or thought, probably by just a fragment of the original team (or maybe just a few interns), just to squeeze a few more dollars from the franchise. Avoid at all costs (Warriors of the North is still passable if you become a KB addict but definitelly avoid Dark Side).

But the first two games are unambiguously great, full of wit and playful brilliance, and will forever remain in my heart.

This game has such a unique elements that seems exciting at first but quickly you will realize how much of a grind it is. The troops you can get are not only limited, but youll have to make trips back and forth to where you can buy them. These 2 elements combine to limit expirementation to extreme levels.

I also have an issue with the battle elements. You have 3 main things to consider/use, your hero spells, your troops, and your dragon. I just dont feel like these 3 systems go well together. There is no cohesiveness. It feels like the troops should be the main focus but your skill tree only empowers one of these things which means you could end up in a situation where your just using your hero spells instead of troops.

The story also takes ages to get going which hampers the expirence even further once youve seen everything the battle system has to offer.

Yes, this game is a lot of fun! The addition of a pet dragon to use Rage points that can support the hero's combat abilities and spellcasting is excellent. It's familiar if you've played King's Bounty: The Legend and you will probably enjoy this game. ****

Like all the others in the series, solid great game. I love the variety of creatures you can have in your army. This version has a lot of replayability with the different expansions.

Like strategy, check
like turn base combat, check
like rpg progression with 3 char classes, check
like dungeon crawling and quests, check
like a minions based combat, check
like no tech issues, fast loading, solid graphics, check

Worth full price. No brainer on sale

I quit this game for awhile after the first time I played it about 10 hours into the game (level 12) because of my frustration with too much traveling and waiting and not being able to allocate my stats upon leveling up. Unlocking the pegasus ability greatly helped the former, but the latter is still a major downer. Why take the ability to allocate stats out of the game?

Anyway, this game is much like its predecessor, King's Bounty: The Legend, but it isn't nearly as captivating. I figure one of the main reasons is that you spend a whole lot more time boating around as opposed to walking or flying to other places, which felt far more engrossing. I eventually came back to play it more and had a slightly better experience after getting over a hump in the gameplay. In any case, the game is still fun, and I can recommend it by itself, but I definitely wouldn't recommend it over The Legend. 6/10.

King's bounty is great because it's an army management game, but combined with rpg elements. Other than the Might and Magic series, there aren't a lot of games like it. Where Might and Magic focuses more on resources, city management, and grand strategy, King's Bounty offers the other side of the coin; the loot hunting, skill tree level ups, and a grand world filled with multiple areas/islands to explore. There's a story too, but it's a bit on the light side. You'll find hours of entertainment here if any of the qualities above pique your interest.

Good fun.

Basically, a bit more of King's Bounty: The Legend. As its predecessor, a classic turn-based mechanic over a rather simplistic story. This time even more than the original, if I remember correctly. Minor role playing possibilities, mostly limited to the character type one chooses. Good number of troop and spell options.

For something with a bit more bite, more RPG elements, better story and more complex interaction between your party, check Expeditions: Conquistator.

As a player of King's Bounty:The Legend i was really curious about this game and if it could live up to its predecessor.
I'm not dissapointed to say the least. The art and music are really nice and enjoyable and the battles are the same tactical battles as before. So if you are looking for more after playing the Legend, then this is for you.

For players not known with the King's Bounty series, it happens in a medieval fantasy setting with demons and mages. you yourself play the hero commanding troops and casting spells. because of the huge ammount of different troop choices, there are always new units to try. if i had to summarize in one sentence: it's an adventure and strategy game combined.

If you like strategy games and like to be challenged, then this game is for you.
