Escapist review:
Saying: "There's certainly a meaty game with a unique flavor at its core once you've broken through the game's layers of incoherence and bewildering maze of content."

"This beautiful remake from Russia demonstrates how love for a classic and faith in your mechanics can create an unexpected gem."

"Katauri brought back a classic and updated it in ways that would make the folks at New World Computing proud, which is why it's in the running for some of our Game of the Year awards."

well.....I repeat -> were they playing the demo or the retail ? do they even own a copy of the game they reviewed ? did the company give them a free retail cd to actually review the game in full or were they reviwing from the "demo version ? OFcourse you can continaully post on how good the game is after playing around with the demo , but this does not change the fact that the product that customers recieve on the cd is so full of bugs that is not worth the price tag you put on it and that it was pushed out the door before it was even finished. (or is it ? ) sometimes I wonder about whether they are done fixing it or not -
I love space rangers 2 , but I got my copy when eveything works and the product was for the most part finsihed - SHOUld the company fix all the bugs , and place CORRECT system requirements for the game on the downloads( I noticed that this is being fixed on some websites) , FIX the nonfunctional menus, FIX the game from crashing when music is enabled , FIX the other misc game play bugs , FIX the game from hardbooting pc's by making the graphics options functional in place of just looking functional , then it will be a game that will turn to GOLD in my eyes. Until then , I await the patch -

Gamerboots: Sorry, but to suggest they're reviewing a demo is just plain silly. Reviewers may sometimes get pre-release versions (that, if anything, have more problems than full versions), but never demos. As for the bugs, well, it's sad that you're having problems, but don't assume that's the case for everyone else. I've played the game for fifty odd hours, and I haven't experienced a single problem.

I strongly believe that gamerboots spoke about Space Rangers when talking about bugs - KB had the least bugs I ever seen. So he just couldn't refer to KB tL IMHO (not to mention that for both bugs I have experienced - Mirabella and Neoka, there was a solution already on the web, on this forum, and I had this game in the early beginning after release - bug with a solution is not a bug, it us just a feature that shows you how great is the support for this game)

and yes- even non-professional , non-commercial game reviewers have always full version, this is just a rule... like without electricity is not pc gaming... rule... dot (in in each case is from the review itself readable that they played the full version - like short describing locations or scenes that are not in demo)
WOK pan? You sure mean WOG...
Equilibrium? You sure mean Equlibris...

A dutch review:
Fragland.be: http://www.fragland.be/reviews/Kings...e-Legend/1351/ (84%)

Bad points are the pathfinding, no balance, sometimes stretched and to much money for to little to buy.
Good points are the challenge (even on easy lol), a great mix between TBS and RPG and addicting.

About the challenge part, I don't think they knew (or know) that you can check the enemie's strenght with the right mouse button... It is never mentioned and they never hint to it.

Glad I ordered the game for my christmas.

King's Bounty grabbed the third place at "Games of the Year 2008" awards at Unigamesity, ahead of games like LittleBigPlanet or Metal Gear!
