There's a great review at Eurogamer, they give it 9/10. Read it here:

http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=319560

Judging by the comments, there's a lot of people who didn't know about the game. I think that's PC-gamings biggest problem at the moment - there's a lot of great PC-titles around, but the press doesn't seem interested in covering them properly, so people get the impression it's all World of Warcraft and Football Manager and nothing more. I wish there was something to be done about this.

But I digress. Though the review at EG is falling off the front page alarmingly fast, it seems to have generated some extra interest. Which is good.

I wonder if they were playing the demo or the retail ?
heres my review - oh yeah, you have to turn the music off in the retail to keep it from crashing so often
I give it the all-american pig award for making consumers world wide pay $40+ just to be the beta testers for this great unfinished product Heres my review :

King’s Bounty: The Legend receives rating Great and scores 8.0 in the review recently published by Gamespot.

“Forget about looking at King's Bounty: The Legend as a sequel to an oldie-but-goodie and take it on its own merits. Anyone with the nostalgia gene who played the original might get a special thrill out of this sequel coming along almost 20 years later, but you don't need a connection to this classic to enjoy this impressive take on the traditional tactical RPG.” – summarizes the author.

The Gamespot review is very positive [8/10], but look at this:
Critic review: 8.7/10
User Score: 9/10 [597 votes]

Also I am sad that in "The Good" is missing "Great Music/ audio theme" - this game totally deserves it IMHO (of course this is not critism against the reviewer)

Anyway... User Score says it all

Not really a review of the game, but a technical look at how it fares in widescreen. And it does pretty well.

Hi, GameCyte have reviewed the game:
http://www.gamecyte.com/review-kings-bounty-the-legend

They also had an anti-gift guide, and they mentioned that people should not buy Fallout 3, but instead King's Bounty (or The Witcher) if they want an RPG:
http://www.gamecyte.com/anti-gift-guide-200

Cheers.
Edit: If you don't want to read, it got 4.5/5 stars.

I especially like this part of the review:
"Keeping in mind I purchased this myself, I think this is the highest praise one can give."

How I agree, how I just agree...
