Critic Reviews for Kingdom Rush Origins

Kingdom Rush Origins does a lot right, but it’s also got one major flaw that sours the experience.

Kingdom Rush Origins from Ironhide Game Studio is a step up with creativity, enemy, and hero design/execution, and with how clever the series’ maps can get. Unfortunately, the difficulty has also stepped up and can create a frustrating time that may hurt the positive parts of this latest Kingdom Rush game.

Kingdom Rush Origins continues the tradition of supremely rewarding tower defence gameplay and it plays wonderfully on Switch.

Kingdom Rush Origins keeps the familiar and fun game mechanics from the first two installments in the series. And with so many heroes to choose from with different skill sets to try out and challenge of the different modes, there is plenty to keep you busy. I think that Origins feels more balanced than the others in the series and it’s also the best one. Kingdom Rush is quite possibly the most iconic Tower Defense game out there in the market. If you’re a fan of the series like I am there isn’t any reason why you wouldn’t love this edition to Kingdom Rush, just like I do.

Kingdom Rush Origins is easily one of the best Tower Defence games I’ve played in quite some time. Although I would have loved a speed option and the ability to use unlocked towers in earlier levels, I still had a great time playing the game and found it very challenging and satisfying. There’s a number of difficulties, gameplay modes, and a whole host of upgrades and heroes to unlock, if you like the genre then you’ll easily sink many hours into the game.
