Kyn is a game for people who want to hack, slash, and blast through hordes of monsters without totally turning off their brain. While it never quite reaches its full potential, it's still a very entertaining game and worth considering for any fans of the genre.

To put it simply, KYN is a fun game that doesn't do enough to separate itself from the countless other top down-action RPGs.

Kyn is an interesting first game from independent developer Tangrin Entertainment. The game brings with it an interesting campaign and gorgeous environment, but could use some polishing in the story telling side.

Kyn is not a flawless game but is an interesting take on the topic of isometric RPGs. Worth taking a look at it.

Although Kyn is an average title in most aspects, if you are a fan of the RTSRPG genre, dungeon crawling through this viking landscape with your customized party is a better experience than many.

Kyn is a fun game. But it's also a little broken, a little bland, and a little weird.

Even with all of its issues, Kyn is a decent RPG featuring an incredible soundtrack. The developers are still working on ironing out the remaining bugs, but this is definitely still worth picking up if you're craving a new action-RPG during the remaining days of this summer lull.

Kyn lacks the depth you would find in other RPGs of its kind, but the satisfying combat and and forgiving nature of it's party customization is what will keep you interested.

Kyn is a well-conceived, albeit slightly broken, party-based Action RPG that succeeds in creating interesting mission scenarios but struggles at character building and consistently enjoyable combat.

Overstuffed and underdeveloped, Kyn is a buggy RPG with good combat, but without a great story or engaging character progression.

Kyn is a solidly-crafted RPG with some fun and interesting set pieces, but isn't innovative enough to stand out among similar titles in the genre.

On paper, everything about Kyn looks like it should amazing. Mystically powered Viking super-soldiers? Check. A diverse collection of loot and weapons? Aye. Long campaign, wrought with mayhem and peril? You better believe it. With all of these crucial boxes checked, it would be hard for the game to be bad, right? Sadly, not even these high points can overcome a title that has more bugs than a re-run of Fear Factor.

Is a beautiful Norse fantasy world enough to save Tangrin Entertainment's indie-RPG from a lackluster story and bland characters?
