King's Bounty - Previews @ Gamespot, Gamespy

by Magerette, 2008-06-12 17:06:21

Two more big sites have put up previews of the strategy/rpg King's Bounty:The Legend from 1C and Katauri. The first is at Gamespot:

We played through several hours of a demo version of King's Bounty and are pleased to report that fans of the old-school turn-based role-playing game should enjoy the familiar gameplay mechanics as well as a few new surprises. First we chose a mage from the three preset classes. There are no immediate player-customization options, but you will equip a number of items as well as pick and choose your way through skill trees moving forward. The mage specializes in magic, the warrior in combat, and the paladin dabbles in both.

And Gamespy adds their bit: 

At the risk of parroting one of the reviews posted on the official King's Bounty site, it is indeed clear that some high-grade, heartfelt work went into creating the game. It has the unmistakable sheen of a game that someone truly cares about -- evidently a real labor of love, and despite the super-earnest fantasy corniness, it's difficult not to appreciate it. A localized version of the game is supposed to come out sometime this year, to be published by Atari, so look for more impressions soon.
