You’ve probably heard of “King’s Bounty The Legend”, either as the sequel of a title long lost in the sands of time, or as a new game reminiscent of the “Heroes of Might & Magic” series. At its core, you’ll find a genre that used to be big on PC, a simple strategy-RPG. As of late though, this type of game has been far more prominent on home consoles and portables, with popular Japanese franchises like “Fire Emblem” and “Final Fantasy Tactics”. Most of these — excluding their Eastern style — have one major difference, as they only consist of battle scenes and story sequences, without giving players any opportunity for exploration. “King’s Bounty The Legend” however, remains true to its RPG roots, offering a vast fantasy world to explore, with a seemingly limitless amount of quests, and loot.
