Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

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.

Graphics:

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:

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.

Overall:

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.
