King's Bounty II
Top Critic Average
King's Bounty II is a good adventure game with better turn-based combat. There are plenty of elements to keep the player interested, but the story does not have the depth you might expect, and therefore doesn't warrant the $59.99 price tag.
King's Bounty 2 features fun tactical battles while telling a memorable story as it immerses you in its high fantasy world. But, boy oh boy, prepare for a barrage of ridiculously long loading screens and plenty of other unstreamlined elements.
King's Bounty 2 is a fairly strong tactical RPG that is dragged down by a mediocre plot and a lot of unnecessary jogging.
King's Bounty 2 is a unique game, but it's uniquely mediocre.
King's Bounty fans will find a much different game compared to its predecessors, and not all changes are for the best. Still, there's enjoyment to be found in the new chapter of the series, especially when it comes to the battlefield.

King's Bounty II offers an enjoyable mix of a fantasy RPG and tactical turn-based combat that fans of both genres will lap up.
King's Bounty 2's hexed-based battles, customisation and army management are all a good time. The RPG they're packaged with, while sometimes gorgeous, is baggy and bland.
A fun experience for a gamer of any background. King's Bounty II gives us a world full of interesting characters, fun side quests, mysteries to solve, and challenging yet rewarding battles
I didn’t hate King’s Bounty II; I loved the combat system. The hex design and the battlefields are all highlights. However, the things that can be done in-between those fights is where the majority of the player’s time will be spent. And it as much as I usually enjoy exploring RPG’s, there was no joy in navigating the overworld in King’s Bounty II due to the ridiculously slow movement speed. Those that are fans of the franchise will no doubt find much to love here with the fun combat and varied units and even decent main story.
