Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom
all together a good game
When you just want to kill something, i suggest you do it on this game. It's consecutive killing. No real storyline, but if you feel bad, then i suggest you get a game like this and go on a killing spree. It really calms the nerves and calms your mind. You can sell with odd traders and buy stuff from them so it's not a total waste. There are no towns and really, truly no storyline. It's a good game and I'll admit it's not fable or oblivion or anything like that, but you can still kill things as you please and you NEVER get in trouble. They're like dinosaur warriors (or you can call them reptiles) that are totally wicked sick. I love the way you get to kill tons of them at a time and plus the bosses are a serious challenge. So yeah, get this game and add it to your collection if you're one of those people that loves to collect killing games. I wouldn't say RPG but it's totally worth the money. Especially if you just want to take a knife to someone's throat. This game should calm you down.
Nothing like the origional
I played the first Kingdom Under Fire for the original Xbox. This game is literally nothing like the first. I rented this, hoping it was, and wow was I disappointed. This is just an all out "hack and slash" game where you run through random levels destroying anything in your path to the finish line. There are extra weapons and stuff you can get to customize, but it doesn't do all that much. The storyline is complete garbage. At least the part I got through. I was Reignier (not sure how to spell it), and i basically ran around, killed random things, and in the end, I went to sleep to talk to some lifeless woman. I mean hey if you can find enjoyment out of something like this, more power to you. Personally I would NEVER recommend this unless you like: -endless hacking and slashing -a very hard to get interested in storyline -looking for something nothing even close to the first (besides character names) - throwing away money :)
I've played the demo and have to admit I am intrigued. I found myself paying attention to the background animation (birds flying, petals falling, trees splintering from my blade) and was truly impressed. The graphics engine for the game is beautiful...I'll be buying it even if some call it "hack and slash".
Hmmmm. The game contains all of the elements of an RPG, Leveling Up, Killing Monsters, Gaining EXP, getting new weapons and armor. The games soundtrack is repetitive, i think there is only 2 songs that play throughout the whole game. The game is pretty fun though, Lacks a story line though but killing monsters and leveling up and getting achievements and some boss battles are fun, i think its worth 10 bucks. But hey we all have opinions
This One Has Potential
I played the demo, and while it gave a poor presentation to me, I know for a fact that this game has alot of potential. Compare this game to Phantasy Star Universe/Online and Diablo 2. It has elements from both of those games and molds them together. If you have tried and liked any of those past games, I highly recommend you give this one a try. I can also see the xbox live community be quite populated for this game. The fact being that an online medival fantasy game has not been released until now is going to help for sure. One more day until release so we'll see what the final verdict will be.
A game for the extremely bored.
Now don't get me wrong I love action/RPG games as much as anyone else, But in my opinion Kingdom underfire does not deliver the exciting gameplay the game case promises. You start the game with a choice between 5 charaters, Then after that it is a "Follow the path and kill anything in the way" sort of game. Which when your bored and just want to pop it in your system and slash away for an hour or so can be fun from time to time. The graphics are good sound is ok. Monsters are week for the most part. Not much of a challenge to the game except for the boss's which are extremely hard if you do not do some extra leveling. There are no real quests in the game, just to kill a certian ammount of enimys to learn new skills. Overall i would say its an "OK" game. simple enough for anyone to play and beat, buy it to add to your collection/gamerscore.
Great Game, Reminds me of Diablo
This game is basically like diablo. Its fun to play with friends and the characters are original and fully customizable. If I was you, I would at least rent this game. The game may not be like oblivion, but its like Dynasty Warriors mixed with Diablo. The leveling system is great and the harder difficulties prove for more of a challenge. As your character levels up you can spend points towards skills such as HP, SP, and Luck which helps them find rare items. My favorite character on there was the vampire who had the most balanced skills and was great with double katanas. The only problem I found with this game was the weapon upgrade system. You would need to find two different weapons and mix them together to make a new weapon that would make you have to get at a higher level to use. Overall, this game is definitely worth a rent.
I can't believe it...
Words cannot describe how much of an upset this game is. I feel terrible for anyone who actually payed the sixty plus dollars to buy this game. I played this game for about four hours straight and accomplished nothing. There's no real story and the game play is extremely limited. All the levels have one path with is empty and there's an occasional mob every now and then. The thing is though, that the mobs go back to where they were if you move far enough away from them. This makes the game too easy repetitive and boring. After all the time is spent playing it I was only able to learn one skill. Again, the game is just hack and slash and requires no thought process. A chimp could play this game! There is no reason for anyone to play this games and it was a waste of ***. (Good thing I rented it)
I liked the game it was very unique and had a good feeling to it. It has lots of classes. And it has duel welding. :)
Worst experience ever
If you ever played the Kingdom Under Fire game for the original Xbox and enjoyed it and thought that the creators would be smart and make another game like that one, well you are surely mistaken. instead they made a random game where you are all alone instead of commanding different groups of fighters and you go on random quests that dont mean anything to the player. forget about commanding spearmen or archers or knights and basically you have a game where it is you versus everything and anything for no reason at all. the creators should have just stuck with the original game style and ran with that because that was an outstanding game to have. dont waste your money on this game and just pray that a game like the original kingdom under fire comes out
