The number of hours Steam tells me I've played Crossworlds. I was a big fan of KB: The Legend, but it had a few (balance) flaws, Crossworlds managed to iron those out and whats left is a very tidy, extremely replayable experience (with many more units, spells and items thrown in). Crossworlds talent trees are far better balanced across the classes compared to The Legend, andread more some of the obvious, cheesy high-end spell spam from The Legend was also addressed. Some convenience options (as far as recruitment and upgrading) have been added, but be prepared to still travel a bit to replenish your armies with your favourite troops. The story, soundtrack and art are more of the same, which isn't a bad thing, as The Legend players will feel right at home. The scattered spirits of rage have been replaced with a pet dragon, who gains levels alongside you, which, like your companions, items and army, you can build the way you like (and said dragon can even be augmented with items). Despite the changes, the game is still as simple and friendly as ever, easy to learn, difficult to master, utterly different with every playthrough, and the high point of the series (steer clear of Warriors of the North). Highly recommended.

I first bought this on-sale at Amazon for $7.50 two years ago and loved it. It was loaded with DRM and so when it came out late last year DRM-Free I bought another copy for $5 at Gamer's Gate. Now I see it on-sale for $15 here and I'm wondering what GOG is thinking. Its a great game, don't get me wrong, but very few games, even here, are worth more than $10.

Every aspect of this game is a delight. The art is lush and richly detailed, always in motion and always interesting. The gameplay is deep and strategic, and with the Crossworlds expansion the main storyline is more involving as well. The writing is by turns fascinating and hilarious, but always worth reading. I've played all of the new King's Bounty titles, and Crossworlds stands out as my favorite by far.
