XboxFamily.com - 02 January 2008:
"Overall this game isn't what fans of the first two Kingdom Under Fire titles would be expecting. Blueside has attempted to completely rethink the franchise. There's a reason most developers don't try this with a hit franchise. It rarely works. But the foundation for a nice franchise spin-off is there. It just isn't ready. With last-gen graphics, most players won't be impressed. But that shouldn't turn you off. The gameplay is what matters. Sadly, that is what will turn you off. The hack-n-slash gameplay with some RPG elements tacked on just can't justify the price in this age of gaming. Just like the weapons feature, it feels like Blueside synthesized a poor-man's Diablo with Ninety Nine Nights. If you're thinking about this one, rent it. Better yet, before you invest the three bucks on that, check out the free demo on XBLM."
