I played every King's Bounty before, and i loved them all. The newest parth in the franchise is basically more of the same. There are again three different classes one can chose in the beginning. Also there are three skill trees. And it depends on your class, how much of every rune to level those up you get. For example as a Soothsayer you get more magic runes primarly. I played it for over 35 hours now, and i think i've beaten about 75% of the campaign. But sadly it get's pretty boring the longer one plays. Because as i said, it's more of the same..
Fun game if you like Heroes of Might and Magic games.Bigshrimp | Jan. 30, 2013 | See all Bigshrimp's reviews »
If you have played King's Bounty: The Legend or King's Bounty: Armored Princess, you will get more of the same, but with a different story. Some of the spells are the same, as well as the characteristics of the hero choices. But overall its a refreshing addition to the series.
There are some bugs that are getting squashed with beta updates but you may run into one while you are playing it. I had on particular bug when I was playing it that was causing it to crash on me. Once a new patch came out, I had to restart the game from the beginning to resolve it and the bug didn't reappear. Overall its a fun game and I would recommend it if you like these type of games.

King's Bounty: Warriors of the North is the natural result of a series turn-based strategy acclaimed and successful, a title that in its successful implementation does not aspire to anything new and innovative, offering what has been done by the young Russian in previous episodes. If from the point of view closely play the game is able to offer lots of fun and excellent longevity, the gameplay is a bit 'redundant, supported by a technical department that you could certainly revisit and improve. Curated as always the narrative, rich in content though not particularly original. As with any appointment with the King's Bounty series, we would like to recommend the game to fans of the strategy genre, as well as the role play gamers looking for a good fun diversion.
A good addition to the series.fable2 | Jan. 12, 2013 | See all fable2's reviews »
As a fan of the original series, there are few things that annoy me. First is that for the first 4 islands (at least) your troop selection is very limited, and the enemy is 95% undead, with some bears, snakes and spiders here and there. What made the original game great is that you build your army, and adapt it to a wide variety of battles. In the original game, you fought varying armies of neutrals, humans, dwarves, orcs, etc. In the original series, you had to use real tactics to defeat armies. I do not see this too much in this game. Playing it on Hard, the majority of the battles feel way too easy and predictable. There's one ranged undead unit, occasionally a necromancer. I have more or less the same viking army. After 200 battles this gets repetitive. The units are cheap, and before level 15 I have about 400k gold, which I don't remember happening in other titles. My other complaints are poor translation quality, I cannot make sense of some traits (ex: Favorite of the Gods) and abilities. I've seen 1 pirate in 4 islands. Some skills are broken (like the random blessing of witch hunters). Other than that, the game is good, and is worth it.
More of the same, but this is a good thingRaidenHayabusa | Dec. 9, 2012 | See all RaidenHayabusa's reviews »
The King's Bounty series has been the best example of a Heroes of Might and Magic type of game in recent years, each new offering has offered something different and entertaining and this is no exception.
As stated by DukePaul this game is more of a stand alone expansion than a full game, but still provides a solid gameplay experience which will keep you entertained for many hours.
Currently it is 50% off and I would very much recommend you take the opportunity to pick it up as it is very good value for what you pay for
If you are a fan of the series, buy it.DukePaul | Oct. 29, 2012 | See all DukePaul's reviews »
Finally the King's Bounty franchise gets another game after a long time, with a few new features but loyal to his gameplay roots.
The game is an strategy turn based combat rpg like the previous games, its more like a stand alone expansion than a full game but it has a lot content with a lot of hours of gameplay.
This time you control Olaf in a Viking/Nordic setting, this differs a bit from the other games but it is still a fantastic fantasy world, also I like a lot the new pets, the Valkyries.
The game feels a bit old because of the graphics, I hope with a new sequel they can change the graphic engine but for now this game looks nice.
Also even if it is the fourth game on the series, you don't need to play the previous games, each has his own story.
If you are hungry for more King's Bounty, get this game.
