Final Breakdown


Solid gameplay of the King's Bounty series, refined through Armored Princess, and with a "something for everyone" approach in the three new campaigns. Very nicely done.


The King's Bounty series graphics are slightly aging, but still beautiful to behold. A lot of work obviously went into the new units, spells, and arenas.

Sound and Music:

The lack of voice acting still doesn't hurt, but the music isn't quite as good as the earlier full campaigns.


Difficulty in the Arena and Defender campaigns is definitely ramped up - the fights are a lot more tactically oriented than the pure beatdown fights seen in the larger campaign world.

Controls and Interface:

The interface is about as good as it's going to get. Only hampered by a couple of spots in some arenas where large rocks can block view to a hex behind them, but a quick tilt of the camera easily corrects this, and there's time to do it since the game's turn based.


Exceedingly solid. If you're a fan of the series, grab it. If you want to give it as a gift, the Platinum Pack option is ideally suited for gift-giving.
