Not really liking the new game so far. It did away with the units system (now every unit is just 1 unit, not a stack of units), dialed back the colorful fantasy elements, and the units revealed so far are almost all just boring variation of human fighter and archer. No magic so far either. The graphics are OK but boring grey/brown realistic medieval... not the Heroes of Might and Magic 1-2-3-4 look that King's Bounty expanded upon.
And who the heck ever wanted a Dragon Age style NPC discussion system from King's Bounty? The bread and butter of the game was always tactical combat. If I wanted to play an RPG I'd play an RPG. A TBS just needs a storyline with a few dialogue trees every now and then...

All in all this looks more like a sequel to Blackguards than KB.

Yes, I gave up during WotN. I never finished that game or the next one - the bugs, the unbalanced new units, the terrible map planning... it was like they restarted the game from scratch using the existing assets, and remaking all the mistakes that were fixed the last two times... My understanding was the original programmers and designers were sent over to Royal Quest. Why could they not get them back?
WotN with Ice and Fire is actually a nice game, at least now, with the bugs fixed (I don't think I encountered any bug in my four IaF playthroughs). I really like it, especially because it has many more units and other stuff (music is also top-notch and the new, IaF areas are good too).

KB2 units are not THAT boring, at least if you have read russian blogs with images of interviews. You probably didn't read the entire discussion, where I said they are gonna include griffins, elementals, a really good-looking dragon (quite the only really wonderful thing in the game right now), but I don't blame you, since we talked a lot.

And yeah, TBS -> RPG is totally not the way; they should have done something like Knight's Bounty or something instead of a sequel.
