Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

About as fine as you're going to get for small-army, turn-based combat, and a worthy successor to the Heroes of Might & Magic franchise.

Graphics:

The graphics are beautiful, while being tuned enough that it's accessible to most any PC out there. Well done on the part of the developers.

Sound and Music:

World music, stellar. Dialogue? Sorry, all done with text. I suppose it makes it easier to translate for multiple languages, and keeps production costs down.

Difficulty:

Depending on how you want to play, the difficulty may fluctuate, but that's the reason we have difficulty settings.

Controls and Interface:

Again - they've cleaned up what needs cleaning up, and the end result is nigh flawless. Sticking with the third-person isometric viewpoint is a design choice, and the game does wonderful things with it. The few times it got hard to maneuver the camera during battles to see certain units have been cleaned up.

Overall:

King's Bounty: The Legend was a "sleeper": the sequel/standalone expansion, Armored Princess, should be in your collection. For RPG/Might&Magic fans, both should be.
