Critics Consensus: King’s Bounty II is an RPG and turn-based strategy hybrid that features a robust and effective combat system, but it’s rough around the edges. Questionable design decisions, including a confusing alignment system, outdated visuals and poor world building drag down the 40-hour experience.

8/10

King’s Bounty II offers an enjoyable mix of a fantasy RPG and tactical turn-based combat that fans of both genres will lap up.

King’s Bounty II offers numerous options to keep you playing its 40-hour campaign. Unfortunately, it suffers from questionable design, janky movement while exploring, and confusing alignment system outcomes. It can be a treat for long-time fans, but it’s also rough around the edges.

If you’re willing to invest your time learning the battle system and strategies to succeed in King’s Bounty II then there’ll be some enjoyment to be found here. However, the game is very unforgiving with your time, forcing you to spend hours completing dull side missions and looting various places to level up your units, only for them to be slain in the next main mission battle you fight. Also constantly having to reload saves just to progress through the story feels very outdated.
