Klar muss einem das Genre von „King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North“ gefallen, um es zu mögen. Wer mit rundenbasierten Kämpfen und dem Erkunden der Spielwelt nichts anfangen kann, der sollte „King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North“ auch nicht spielen. Für alle, die sich aber zurücksehnen in die längst vergangene Zeit der Hexafelder und Anti-Echtzeit-Kämpfe, für die ist „King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North“ aber sicherlich ein großartiges Spiel, da es erstens nicht mehr viele Spiele wie dieses gibt, es zweitens für 25 Euro nicht so viel kostet und drittens es einfach sein ganz eigenes Spielgefühl mit toller Atmosphäre aufbaut. „King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North“ ist ganz klar ein würdiger Nachfolger der Serie – Fans wird es begeistern.

Indie Game Reviewer (Oct 25, 2012)
I admit to looking down my nose at the King’s Bounty series before playing it. There was a certain element of 80s metal album artwork that I found worrying. It had the feel of something made by people who were too close and too enthralled with their own work to do any quality control. It looked a little like an inside joke. It turns out that it’s more like the kind of fun that you have when you don’t worry about who’s watching, like playing with Legos or singing in your car. But, on top of that, it’s a really, really good game. So it’s like playing with Legos and making a scale model of the Eiffel Tower, or a professional opera singer singing in the car.

Det skjedde noe merkelig da jeg skulle vurdere King's Bounty: Warriors of the North. Førsteinntrykket var skuffende; jeg synes det var for likt sine forgjengere, men kunne fortsatt like spillmekanismene. Jo mer jeg spilte, jo mer ble jeg hektet og jo mer koste jeg meg med opplevelsen. Dette er ikke den oppfølgeren jeg egentlig vil ha, men det er et knallgodt spill i seg selv, laget av folk som virkelig forstår hvordan de skal sette sammen en tilfredsstillende, vanedannende og rett og slett koselig opplevelse. At jeg synes spillet var moro etter 10 timer var egentlig ikke så overraskende, men jeg må innrømme at jeg ble overrasket over at jeg faktisk synes det var enda morsommere etter 20 timer.

King's Bounty: Warriors of the North è il naturale seguito di una serie turn-based strategy acclamata e di successo, un titolo che nella sua buona realizzazione non ambisce a nulla di nuovo e innovativo, proponendo quanto già fatto dai ragazzi russi nei precedenti episodi. Se dal punto di vista strattamente ludico il gioco è in grado di offrire tanto divertimento e un'eccellente longevità, il gameplay risulta un po' ridondante, supportato da un comparto tecnico che si poteva certamente rivisitare e migliorare. Curata come sempre la parte narrativa, ricchissima nei contenuti seppur non particolarmente originale. Come ad ogni appuntamento con la serie King's Bounty, ci sentiamo di consigliare il gioco agli amanti del genere strategico, così come ai role play gamers in cerca di un buon diversivo ludico.

It is most certainly an evolution rather than a revolution, but that is not a bad thing at all. When I talked to the developers at Gamescom this year, they mentioned that one of their playtesters had a game which had lasted 80 hours, and he still had not finished it. It is very easy to see people putting a lot of time into King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North. The early part of the game lacks variety, with limited troops at your disposal and repetitive combat against an AI which is not actually that intelligent. New players may be put off by that. However if all you want is more King’s Bounty after playing the previous games in the series, then that is certainly what you will get.

Wojownicy Północy to solidne rozszerzenie znanej i lubianej formuły, jednak deweloper wystawia cierpliwość fanów na wielką próbę. Zmian względem Wojowniczej Księżniczki jest tu zdecydowanie za mało.

Eigentlich könnte man Warriors of the North mit folgender Aussage perfekt zusammenfassen: Es ist Armored Princess mit Wikingern. Die Neuerungen sind an einer Hand abzuzählen und dazu nicht alle sinnvoll. Keine Frage, das grundlegende Spielprinzip macht nach wie vor Spaß und fesselt an den Monitor. Doch nach dem zweihundertsten Standardkampf fühle ich mich mehr wie ein Roboter denn wie ein Spieler. Es wird Zeit für einen richtigen Nachfolger mit frischer Spiel-Engine und echten Innovationen statt der ganzen Inhaltsupdates. Immerhin sind sich die Macher des Add-on-Charakters ihres Spiels bewusst und verlangen einen fairen Preis.

Wie maar niet genoeg kan krijgen van King's Bounty, zal in deze derde uitbreiding dezelfde verslavende gameplay vinden. Wie Armored Princess heeft gemist, kan best eerst die uitbreiding spelen.

Not quite the weakest of the reborn King's Bounty series, but a long way short of being its best. If you haven't tried the series at all yet and have even a passing interest in singleplayer strategy, make an immediate beeline for first game The Legend, with this new but unchanged sequel only as an optional follow-up if you're jonesing for more.

King's Bounty je King's Bounty - svižná tahová strategie s vtipným příběhem a stovkami taktických kombinací. Pro followery Heroes of Might & Magic a dobré zábavy nutnost, i když stále stejná.

Paradoksalnie, King's Bounty: Wojownicy Północy niezmiennie więc cieszy i oferuje masę atrakcji. Jest grą wtórną, a jednak piękny, choć podstarzały świat fantasy wciąż fascynuje i na wiele długich godzin zatrzyma przy ekranie zarówno miłośników serii, jak i początkujących graczy.

Ich will mich nicht zu sehr beschweren, denn ich hatte über Stunden meine Freude beim Leveln und Kundschaften und für knapp 25 Euro gibt es hier wirklich enorm viele dieser Stunden. Aber wenn wir schon bei ehrlich sind, dann muss man anmerken, dass ziemlich viel davon auch an der bequemen Routine und dem Wohlfühlfaktor der gut bekannten Nische lag. King´s Bounty war zuletzt auf dem Mega Drive ein aufregendes Konzept, das erste Remake 2008 schon eine Art Retro-Vergnügen der moderneren Art und das jetzt zum dritten Mal durchexerziert? Es wird definitiv Zeit, die Komplexität anzuziehen, die Engine aufzufrischen und King´s Bounty fit für eine eigene Strategie-Zukunft zu machen. Das hier ist nämlich der Weg in die wohlig-warme Belanglosigkeit und ultimativ zum Vergessen, bis dann zwanzig Jahre später wieder jemand das Franchise entdeckt.

Grafika i herní principy se sice od předchozích dílů nijak neliší. Příznivci série ale za příznivou cenu dostanou desítky hodin RPG a taktické zábavy. A se sexy valkýrami coby bonusem!

Despite lacking multiplayer and having an insane distaste for newcomers King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North is a fun, compelling game with good value for money. On the other hand, veteran fans of the series will feel like they’re merely getting a Viking-inspired expansion pack to The Legend, and so really have to ask themselves if that’s what they want. Furthermore, new fans will feel thrown in at the deep end but if they manage to swim they’ll end up addicted – but why start with the most expensive one when The Legend is $10?

On top of the great strategy gameplay, Kings Bounty: Warriors of the North offers a great value with its $30 price tag. The worst thing that you can say about it is that it doesn’t deviate much from King’s Bounty: Armored Princess, besides a few details and a few conveniences – or is that the best thing that you can say about it? After all, Armored Princess was an excellent game. If you played it three years ago and you haven’t touched it since then, this formula should feel fresh for you all over again. If, on the other hand, you played through Armored Princess a few times and you would like something completely new, then you could be put off by its similarities with Warriors of the North. If this game had come out in 2009, it would be worth a higher score for having been more fresh. Either way, King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North is a very good game, and whether you are a strategy fan who is new to this series or a fan of King’s Bounty, it is definitely worth owning.

Warriors of the North gives franchise fans something they love: more King’s Bounty. I’m a fan of more King’s Bounty, yet the magic is missing with this latest expansion. The Viking faction isn’t as fun to play as other groups. The tweaks to combat, though, give players more tactical options, something any player of a strategy-RPG can appreciate. And this makes it incredibly hard to hold something like a faction’s aesthetic against it. But the Vikings just aren’t interesting, and for the first time, a King’s Bounty expansion doesn’t measure up to the charm of the 2008 game.

Repetition and game-breaking bugs cannot be excused. While I understand that some bugs just slip by and patches will likely rectify issues like the one I experienced, this is what separates top-notch games from the rest. On top of that, why am I still starting the game with spiders, snakes, and thieves? What has changed besides the skin on the models or even the palette? Why is the first boss a spider? I conclude with questions only because I do not understand the lackluster design decisions. Then again, "decisions" implies that thought went into the game.
