4.0 out of 5 stars Almost exactly like the first, but a few new additions September 27, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As the title implies, the game hasn't changed much from the original. The few changes it does have aren't huge, but they do enhance the game. First off though, for the people that have not played the first game, I'll go ahead and break up the strong and weak points that the sequel has.

GAMEPLAY: 8/10: The gameplay itself is pretty fun, but it takes a mission or two to actually learn how to play well. The mixing of RTS and button mashing had never been done before the Kingdom Under Fire (KUF from now on) games. You could be engaged in melee with your hero, fighting off a couple troops of orcs, and decide you want your archers to attack them as well, you just pop up your trusty Map, switch to your archers, and tell them to attack the guys attacking you. It's that simple to command multiple troops while already engaged in combat. The reason I gave gameplay and 8/10 is because the gameplay could have been enhanced a bit. Like waypoints and other such things, when you move troops, their pathfinding skills are sometimes horrible. (For instance, on a mission I played last night, my troops ran around in a circle twice before actually going through the forest to the area I wanted them to.)

GRAPHICS: 8/10: The graphics in this game are pretty good, nothing groundbreaking of course, but good. You can have many orcs, humans, dark elves and the like all in one screen fighting. The sheer numbers that can be on screen all at once is great. I do have a complaint though, although the voice acting isn't bad, the character's lips do not move except up and down every once in a while.

MUSIC/AUDIO: 4/10: Just like the first, it's pretty much the same song played over and over again, never stopping. Ever. The voice acting is kinda cheesy too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed masterpiece September 22, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes picks up on the same note as its predecessor Crusaders, although the time period it is set in is five years earlier than the start of the Encablossa War depicted in the first Xbox release.

It seems to forego much of the tutorial of the first game, which is actually a bit of a shame; the difficulty and complexity of the game can be extremely overwhelming for a newcomer.

The graphics are generally pretty good, and some of the battle scenes are incredible for their complexity. The strategy component seems to be ramped up a bit, and troop maneuvers are as important at the beginning of this one; some missions would be nearly impossible without having been familiar with scouts, withdrawal and repositioning and troops type counters that were learned in the first game. An easier to control camera for moving your troops would have been welcome, but it's not really improved from the first game; easier selection and waypoint creation would have been most welcome.

Despite all this, it's a very fun game with some interesting characters and loads of replay value. Don't buy into it expecting Dynasty Warriors; there is a hack and slash component to it, but the strategy game of controlling your troops on the fly is the key to success.

Fun and challenging with a few frustrations that keep it from being all that it could be, but still a great game that's unique in its presentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best game of 2005 January 16, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The kingdom under fire series are by far the best games that I have ever played. Being a huge fan of fantasy, these games let me live the battles that I dream about,not just watch them, though The Lord Of The Rings movies captured my love for fantasy. Anyway back to the game. The KUF series has everything I've ever wanted in a game, BIG, VIOLENT, BATTLES. The amount of freedom you have on the battlefield is HUGE, and the number of characters that appear on screen make you feel like you've entered an epic medievil(not sure how to spell it) battle. The only thing to complain about, in my opinion, is the steep learning curve, especially in KUF: Heroes, since the developers expected you to have played the first one. Heroes should be a breeze for the KUF veterans like myself, but for a newcomer, like I said, it will be a little overwhelming. But if you are new, dont give up because you cant figure out where or how to position your troops, just keep playing and you'll appreciate the scope and accessability of the battles in Heroes. overall, I think these games are great, but I know they are not for everyone. I had never even played a strategy game before I played Crusaders, but I caught on, and now I'm hooked. Just rent it if your not sure, but I think you'll enjoy it

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome at the discounted price! June 16, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game. Quite challenging and at times too challenging. I found myself wondering at times if the games makers even wanted you to be able to finish this one. If you didn't finish "Kingdom Under Fire the Crusaders", don't even get this one because it will be too much for you. You'll break many valuable objects in your house. It can be quite frustrating. If you were one of the seemingly very few of us that did finish the Crusaders then this is a must have and it is a steal at this price. The graphics are a little better than the last installment, the voice acting not quite as good, and yes they still have the crappy rock music. The biggest complaint people seemed to have with the last version was the music and the lack of the custom soundtrack which was promised on the box. It's like the creators said "oh you didn't like the music huh??? well you can stick it cause here it is again". It's still a great game and well worth the price even if just for the story lines of the seven characters in this one. It fills in some of the plot holes and unanswered questions from the last one.

Once again a great game and as usual

The statistics say...I'm always right

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good.
Gameplay is stifled and boring. Combat is repetitive and one-sided (either you will win, or you will die s gruesome defeat).
The music is painful. Read more
