Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an RPG that does the medieval era right with a refreshingly small-scale story and strong realistic combat.
I wish more games were like this, instead we get shown what to do all the time and the combat in so many other games is just mashing the buttons. This is one of the few games that goes for realism.
Absolutely agreed one of the things I personally don't like about a lot of games is that developers many times almost feel the need to make it fantasy to fit this sort of trope where I feel we're at a time and gaming right now where it's okay to have a very mature realistic game. I literally feel some developers believe they need to have the Magic in the fantasy so they could bring in the younger audience. Trust me I 100% agree with you and completely understand how you feel. I want a game that is going for the realism and focusing on real grounded settings.
Yeah, no magic and dragons feels so fresh. Real-life can still be full of interesting stories and constantly feeling like a vulnerable human in a brutal time like this really adds something. They've taken away the fantasy stuff and simply concentrated on the finer details of history and combat and that shows in this game.
Sounds good, think I will wait for a patch or two though..
Good idea. The game is great but the devs are on top of it with the complaints like the lock picking and save system. I think it’s worth 60 bucks and I can’t stand realistic/dramatic games. It’s so realistic that it’s actually interesting to me.
I don't even mind the save system...but that lockpicking...Jesus Christ. I tried for an hour to open up an "easy" lock and I just gave up. I am no longer going to try to lockpick until that system is fixed. I have been gaming for 30 years now and never ran into a system I could not figure out or do(well maybe that level in battletoads was similarly frustrating...but I was younger at the time)
@tankbusta it's a bitch. I agree. But remember to train with Miller penshek and other Millers. Also, the trick i found is to start around the noon position on the left stick and twist that one quickly, trying to keep that other one yellow, best you can.. You can always let go of the right one to reset. It gets easier once you start applying some perks. Like the one that makes your picks stronger and whatnot. I f'n love this game so much man.. I'm out of town moving my sister and can't wait t get back into it. I already planned out my next escapade..lol
Same here. I was on the fence about buying this or MHW. I'd decided to wait until more of he kinks are knocked out. But definitely want to play it down the road.
Absolutely agreed both are great games but the way I see it is play Monster Hunter now and just wait until they're able to work out all the Kinks out of this game because I want to play this game when all the issues are fixed.
I'm definitely happy to see it is getting at least some solid scores as I'm definitely still waiting for a patch but it's still really good to hear that the core mechanics of the game or solid and it just has a few technical issues that could clearly be addressed later. I'll probably end up playing this game later this fall.
I am having a blast with it BUT I don't blame you. Definitely keep it on your radar though.
Can we play in 3rd person view??
Am sitting on the fence with this for abit linger before i commit
It’s VERY slow to start. The whole game is a learning experience. You feel like a lowly peasant trying to get by. Even the most mundane task, like walking around the ramparts as a guard, is immersive.
Still would have preferred this to have leveling up progression unlocks etc
Well, you Level up your stats for the things you do
You level up what you use. If you use a sword your swordsmanship goes up. The way it should be.
For something like this I would rather actually have the progression very subtle and not so in your face because in real life when you do something good is not like something is showing in your face what a bunch of numbers and stats they're going for realism and I think it's a great idea.
There are 3,865 games that offer that.
When this game plays without issues its phenomenal...but I have had more crashes than I would like, npcs being headless and my horse getting stuck in a fence...I also loathe the lockpicking...but all this can be fixed and once it is...this game will be so great
I can't even lockpick. I gave up.
You and me both friend...I am on the One X and I tried with the Xbox controller and even tried on my ps4 controller(which I am more comfortable with) and still couldn't do it
I was going to get this day 1 but I just have too many games to play , I also hope they put in a 3rd person mode by the time I get to it but I will try it regardless
Too bad it has an awful save system coupled with numerous game-crashing bugs or I'd be all over this. Toss the limited saves into an optional Ironman mode difficulty and I'd pick it up even prior to the bugfixes.
They are adding a system where it will save upon exit. So that's nice. They will never allow unlimited saves for the same reason Dark Souls doesn't.
It's glitchy but ambitious. Basically like a really hardcore Bethesda game. I am enjoying it.
Worst game release ever, even worse than no man skies. Riddled with bugs, unrealistic story and jerky movement. To release a beta as a full priced game is scandelous. Don't buy unless you love frustration and annoyance. Garbage this game
