GamesBeat: Warriors of the North adds to King’s Bounty’s tactics but not to its character (review)

GamesBeat's Jason Wilson: "I’ve always hated Vikings. This may go back to my love of the San Francisco 49ers and the Vikings defeat Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana and co. in three straight seasons (including the 1987 NFC playoffs). Or it could my intense dislike of Thor (DC Comics for life!). More likely, it’s because Vikings aren’t all that original when it comes to works of fantasy.

"King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North is the second full expansion for the 2008 strategy-role-playing game King’s Bounty: The Legend for the PC (and Mac, though this isn’t out for Apple’s platform yet). Four years is a long time to continue adding to one game. King’s Bounty has introduced new lands, new challenges, and new factions through all of its updates. Warriors of the North’s big addition is the Viking faction, something I wasn’t all that enthusiastic about going into my first playthrough. Does is this new army build upon the fun, addicting, tactical gameplay of the previous games? Or has developer Katauri Interactive spent too long working on essentially the same thing?" (King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North, PC) 70/100
