King's Bounty - Armored Princess

Have I mentioned how much I love Steam? This was also on sale over the holidays, and I didn't hesitate to get me a legal copy of this awesome game. The sequel is very similar to the previous offering, with a few tweaks.

For me it was a no-brainer for the Steam special, but it looks like it’s too similar to the original to recommend unless you want more of the same.


Slightly negative review

Positive review

Improvements to the last game:
- Flying available in the middle of the game, allows player to travel between islands quickly
- Can choose to allow weaker mobs to flee rather than fight.
- Dragon seems to be powerful and more flexible than the original spirits of rage
- Smaller Islands split up different units and themes into smaller sizes, apparently improving the flow of the game.

Reviewers mentioned :
- The difficulty is still high, and if you run out of mobs to kill you could get stuck at the bosses, unable to fight them and unable to level any further.
- It’s also not much different from the original to really shine, but it’s still good fun
- Not as “mad-as-bat-cheese” crazy as the original
- Holy crap what is the princess *not* wearing :D
