Sometimes the cringe is what sells it, like a train wreck you can't keep your eyes off of. That cringe factor isn't an accident, which leaves you wondering if it's all just a big old trolling of those who have far too much to say about everything. If you're not so serious about everything all the time, though, it's a fun diversion.
Overall, the appeal of Kingdom Come: Deliverance – From the Ashes might heavily depend on where you are in the game. This certainly is not end-level content. It is somewhere in the middle and when played through, it flows pretty naturally as yet another set of tasks that need to be done.
It's a mostly enjoyable experience, with a few dull moments here and there, that should keep the majority of players happy. Having a deep management simulation is a matter of perspective after all. To some, this may seem lacking, to others it might seem like there is a lot going on. Either way you see it, it's a good effort at trying to bring the management sim to a bigger audience.
Overall I'm really impressed with Gunheart. It's easy to get caught up in the importance of the cross-play aspect, but the game itself is great fun. It's a solid shooter, which some great mechanics and customization that should keep players engaged for quite some time, at the very least long enough to get their money's worth.
