Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes review

Defending your castle

Pros

  • Unique on Xbox and Live
  • Epic and engaging
  • Great action and strategy

Cons

  • The swooshy camera
  • Music and English voiceovers stink
  • Dark Elves aren't easy on the eyes

Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders went through (well, across one corner of) development hell on its route to the shelves. Three changes of publisher meant that the game that finally hit stores was missing a few key features that Phantagram felt would really push it into the realms of excellence. Heroes aims to refine the original’s still brilliant concept to earn the Kingdom Under Fire series the place in gaming history its predecessor failed to secure. But has it managed it this time?
