Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Top Critic Average
If you want an excellent, open-world RPG that feels like a hardcore version of an Elder Scrolls game, then don't hesitate.
Kingdom Come is a walking simulator merged with an RPG that takes you down a Wikipedia black hole. Accepting its historicity and deciphering its cerebral game systems is like completing a religious rite.
Despite a few issues that need tweaking, Warhorse Studios should be proud of Kingdom Come: Deliverance. It's completely different to any other RPG in the market, offering a more realistic, down-to-Earth experience that is almost 100 percent historically accurate, from the events to the people and places that you come across. A game that's fun to play, engaging and teaches you about history? It's a winner in our books.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is pretty much the game I've been waiting for all my life.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is one of the most engrossing and captivating RPGs I've ever played.
If you look through the bugs, you will see beautiful historical based RPG game with unique charm.

Overall, Kingdom Come: Deliverance gets a 9/10, the gameplay is amazing, replacing my need to play Skyrim for quite some time to come. Swordplay is smooth and unforgiving to those who rush in, setting your character up is immersive and engaging, skill progression is rewarding and clearly displayed with diplomacy being rather in-depth.
At the start of this review, I said “Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a game which flew well under my radar,” well skip forward to now and I can tell you Kingdom Come: Deliverance is my game of the Year so far. Sure it’s not perfect, with many glitches and an odd lock-picking and pickpocketing mechanic, but it’s the sum of the parts, rather than some of the parts, which makes Kingdom Come: Deliverance a great game.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance can proudly stand in the company of giants such as the Elder Scrolls series, even surpassing the latest entries in that venerable franchise when it comes to immersion and player agency.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance delivers on its ambitious promise for a realistic, grounded open-world medieval role-playing game, with engaging and complex gameplay systems, weighty and tactical combat and an interesting main story slightly let down by a lack of polish and technical issues on launch.
