Product Description

50 years have passed since the Second Great War of Heroes. The Ancient Heart, the legendary artifact that caused the Great War, was long gone. Legends of the Ancient Heart circulated throughout the land after the Great War, but the slow passage of time caused many to forget the devastation once brought by the artifact. The memories of the dreadful powers hidden within the Ancient Heart, once responsible for deaths of thousands, were beginning to fade. The Papal Court of Ecclesia further discouraged the legends, determining the Ancient Heart to be the work of pure evil, and exiling all who would seek its knowledge. The land of Bersia stood in peace as the former combatants mended their wounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game...Get It! October 17, 2004
By Joe J.
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought Kingdom Under Fire/Crusaders on October 13, 2004. Overall, I found this game very fun, and very INTENSE. Below is a list of what I didn't enjoy, and what I did enjoy regarding the game.

Negatives:

1. The game needs a bird's eye view without the map. There are four views all together, two on a map (long/close-up), two in melee(mid/close-up). The game would be better if they had a third viewpoint where you could pull back the camera one step further without opening the map to see other units and manipulate them around the screen. This view could look something like a Warcraft/Command and Conquer View. The map does this to some extent, but it can become tedious manipulating the troops on the map on close-up mode. Another option would be the ability to split screens by units, so you could see what more than one of the military units is doing @ once.

2. The voices are pretty cheesy. In the future, phantagram should invest a little bit more in getting better voice actors who don't

sound embarassed to read their lines*

*This could also be viewed positively though

3. The game is lacking a bit in terms of varied gameplay. In the future, it would be ideal if we could customize our own characters, as opposed to choosing one of four templates. Additionally, it would be nice if there could be co-op modes - like in lord of the rings - return of the king or head to head modes outside of xbox live.

Positives:

1.Graphics - This game has amazing graphics that take full advantage of the XBox Platform.

2.The cheesy voices - People who take wars between fictional medieval soldiers and orcs and dark elves too seriously need to get a life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant game! Must buy! August 3, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
From the moment I saw this game I knew it would rule.Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders is based 50% on real time strategy (RTS) and 50% pure action and destruction! When the action starts the game mainly plays like "Dynasty Warriors"(which is a good thing) except your fighting in a sci-fi version of the middle ages. It's your army against there's. Each army consists of over a thousand units! and over a hundred units on screen at once! You pick which general you want to play as at the begining(the main character) from the human side or from the dark legion. Before going into battle you can aquire more troops for your army (archers,knights,orcs,spearmen,ect), train them, upgrade armor, get more supplies, and even go to the local pub to have a drink and spy on your troops! When all is set and ready, it's off to the Battlefield! Heres where the strategy part kicks in. you order your troops to move wherever you think would be most efficient, you can set up archers on tops of hills, get your horsemen with lances to break the enemy lines, and even send out fire-breathing dragons to weaken your adversaries! The possibilities are limitless! All this combined with jaw dropping graphics and head-to-head online play, it's Perfect!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Star Review October 19, 2004
By iHalo
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Simply put, Kindom Under Fire is a great game. At first, I was slightly turned off by the heroes combat gameplay (not as flashy as Dynasty Warrior), but as the game progressed and things started opening up to me the game got better and better. Graphics are amazing, sound is top notch (Korean voices are better imho), gameplay is easy to learn (hard to master). The thing I really enjoy about this game is that not only do you have to control and manage your heroes, but also your units actually do make a difference in battle. Heroes are extremely powerful, but they alone will not win battles. I guess the best way to describe the game is think Warcraft 3, but you get to play as your hero/leader using Dynasty Warrior combat. Only issues so far are that:

- when you switch to other group, it leaves your hero extremely vulnerable (I think he just stands there and takes hits).

- setting up archers and spearmen is a little annoying

- heroes engaged in battle can't cast magic, so you have to either cast it before or have another group cast the magic

Haven't played on Xbox Live yet, but according to the website there will be updates soon to enhance Live play (* 2v2 options is one example *). There simply is no reason why not to buy this game. It will definately keep me busy until DOA Ultimate and/or Halo 2 come out.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
THE SHORT: A fine mix of real-time planning and action. The scenarios feel like you're actually participating in battles from Braveheart or Lord of the Rings, but less complicated and more hands-on than typical strategy games. Like Dynasty Warriors with on-the-field planning rather than something like "Risk", there's no turn-by-turn stuff. Very good graphics and sound round out a solid but sometimes frustrating package.

THE LONG: Don't misunderstand when I say there is strategy to this game. Unlike Final Fantasy Tactics or the Civilization series, this game is much more hands-on, with real-time battle decisions rather than micromanaging in a turn-based environment. This is not in the least a turn-based strategy game.

Rather, KUF puts you in control of a character who, on each large 3d map, goes where you want him to, when you want him to, with his troops visibly around him. As you roam around through forests, meadows, and plains, you'll see the enemy and engage them. Do you stop moving and tell your archers to launch their fire arrows, or do you rush flying into their troops and enjoy some hack `n slash?

I'll give you an example from one of the levels. You guide your character and his troops (again, in real time- you use a targeting reticle to tell your guys where to go on an over-the-shoulder-view 3d landscape, and they start running). But you stop your troops once you see the enemy in the distance. You send out one of your troops to scout out the area, and he runs along the enemy's lines giving you an idea how many there are. They also have their backs to the sun, so you'll be blinded- you have to move around the side through the forest. Then, when your ally engages the enemy and sends his signal, you come raging out of the forest to flank the enemy.
