Kingdom Under Fire Heroesby Tony Ingrassia
September 10, 2005
Thanks to our freinds at Phantagrams and Microsoft, I have had the pleasure to spend some time with their up and coming battle fest...
For those of you who missed out on Kingdom Under Fire: Crusades, fear not you get another stab at the new and improved Kingdom Under Fire...Heroes.
I enjoyed Crusades immensly, and I know it was over looked by many, and I'm happy to report that so far my enjoyment is picking up just were it left off.
The battles are huge, the RTS elements are detailed, and the upgrade to the Xbox live function to 6 players on-line is a welcomed site.
Although a little glitchy, I'm assuming these "Little" things will be polished off by the time the final product hits the shelf, KUF: Heroes seems to be headed in the right direction, doing what a sequel is supposed to do, improve on it's earlier version.
Overall, I think the game is looking to be pretty solid, using many of the same elements that made Crusades a sleeper hit, and adding some well thought out improvements. Heroes will definetly be spending some time in my Xbox once the finished product hits the streets.
If your a strategy freak, don't pass on this one.
