Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Top Critic Average
A focus on history makes this an RPG like no other, but its pleasures can leave a sour taste.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an RPG that does the medieval era right with a refreshingly small-scale story and strong realistic combat.
Kingdom Come is a seriously satisfying role-playing experience set in a rich, reactive world.
It won't be for everyone, for various reasons, but if nothing else Kingdom Come proves that a role-playing game doesn't have to rely on fantasy to keep you interested.
Kingdom Come serves up an intriguing personal story and a detailed world worth exploring. However, on a technical level, the game is broken
Kingdom Come: Deliverance offers enthralling medieval history alongside demanding systems and troublesome bugs.
I'm not angry at Kingdom Come, I'm just… disappointed. It was touted as this grand historical representation, an abandonment of fantasy for a true medieval setting, a game that would let us live the middle ages. But the game we got is just this busted, inconsistently ambitious RPG that shines in points, but falls apart in most others.
Warhorse Studios took a big risk with this game and hopefully in the long run the technical issues can be addressed, because as of right now, they prevent Deliverance from reaching greatness. If you can climb over the mountain of jank and poor optimization then you'll be in for an incredibly authentic experience, that when it works, truly puts role-playing front and center in a fabulous way.
If you want an excellent, open-world RPG that feels like a hardcore version of an Elder Scrolls game, then don't hesitate.
Right now, It's not easy to play Kingdom Come: Deliverance because of some technical (on consoles) and gameplay issues, but it also isn't easy to say no to it's unique and ambitious RPG approach. Once you're trapped in this faithful representation of the kingdom of Bohemia, Warhorse's game becomes the ultimate Middle Age simulator.
