    PROS: Great Simulator, great graphics and lighting, can sink HOURS into this game without a thought, RPG at its finest CONS: Steep learning curve, takes a lot of practice to do anything well in this game (kind of like real life), not great voice acting, and an antiquated save system Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a great game that takes a lot of effort to get the most out of it. Most of the game centers on training, as you came up a Blacksmith's son you have no real skills to speak of and are laughably bad at nearly everything. As you play, you end up increasing the skills you use the most to create a somewhat unique character to you. Do you stab everything that moves? You will have a high Strength, Agility, and Sword skills. Do you knock out you opponents while they have their back turned and then pilfer all of their hard earned goods? Have fun with that really high stealth skill. In KCD everything matters and makes an impression. Your charisma goes up and down based on how expensive your clothing is or how dirty it is. Your actions will increase or decrease your standing with everyone from the citizenry to the guards to the different millers to make them love or hate you. With low standing you will even be stopped randomly by guards purely because they know your reputation as a thief. A few things to look out for that take a star away from this game include a very antiquated save system. While I understand the save system (it is designed to make fast travel dangerous and make you think about your actions) I still don't LIKE it. Also the lockpicking starts out being nearly impossible, but after lots of practice I can crack Very Hard locks in mere seconds.

    Beautiful Game

    The graphics for this game are beautiful especially the environment. The combat needs some getting use to and can be very wonky at times. I've heard that the game is very difficult at the beginning and very easy late game. At the moment I'm about 70% through the game and things are still pretty difficult unless you just point blank shoot someone with a bow and arrow. The lock picking and pick pocketing is horrendously hard but they seem to have a patch in the works for it so we will see. The story is very good and the voices for the characters are good as well. The game seems to push you into doing the main quest right away due to time limits at certain points so you'll probably just want to focus on the main quest line at first. If you like rpgs its definitely worth a play but until they fix some bugs and some other stuff I'd wait for a sale maybe when its like $40-$45.

    Interesting Game - Full of Bugs

    The concept for this game is great, but even months after release, this title is still filled with bugs. I've encountered more game breaking bugs in this game than in any other title I can think of in recent memory. Buy on sale only, dont pay $60. Combat is also...okay. There's really not much impact or weight behind attacks. Everything feels pretty weak and slow so far (I'm about 10-15 hours in). There's also really unrealistic damage to further break the immersion. In one instance, I shot someone with two arrows, one in the chest, one in the arm, but they still were coming after me like nothing happened (with the arrows sticking out of them). I don't know if that was another bug, or if enemies simply don't react much to limb damage. Overall, it's just an average game. Good idea with a really flawed implementation. So. Many. Bugs.

    A realistic RPG sim

    This game is like if you modded Skyrim with a hardcore mode, only without the fantasy stuff like dragons. You have to manage your hunger, sleep, and dress in dark colors to help sneak better at night. People will even comment on the cleanliness of your clothing (or lack of). Some quests are extremely in depth and have hidden options that you can discover. But because it's so focused on realism there are moments where the game can be a bit dull. You only ever fight other humans and the world has a lot of empty space, as it did in the 1400s. You have to really know what you're getting into with this game to know if you'll like it or not.

    Bugs hold it back

    I knew this game had some issues before I bought it, but I thought most of it had been taken care of by the massive patches Warhorse had released for it. I can't even imagine the original state of the game then, because the bugs that are in it now are pretty terrible. You can certainly still play it, and I've not encountered a game breaking bug yet, but it does really break immersion. NPCs act odd, textures fail to load and pop in is ridiculous. The story is fine, and I like the characters, but it's hard to recommend this game. It's my first regretted purchase of the year. I'm glad I got it on sale at least.

    Don't do it! This game is broken

    I bought this game, updated it (because it was already notorious for bugs) and it still had a game breaking issue within the first 30 minutes of play. In the story line quest, you are required to pick a lock, however, no matter how I tried I could never get the lock picking animation to start, it would circle as I held to start, then simply close out to the normal paying screen. Unforgivable for a game to be so broken, but I cannot even return it because Best Buy will not take back an opened game. Save yourself the frustration and the ding to your wallet.

    Very Enjoyable RPG

    Not much hand-holding, which is great, since it encourages creativity and thinking. The realism and design is very refreshing and fun. And the game doesn't wait for you either, there are quests you may fail from simply neglecting them for too long, which adds to the realism. There are multiple ways to finish each quest, so choices do hold weight, unlike many RPGs nowadays that only give you the illusion of choice. The combat is slower paced and requires more thinking, which I love. The con of this game is bugs. You may run into some, which could be frustrating, but the devs are passionate about the game and are hard at work to fix them up, so it's only a matter of time before the game gets more and more polished.

    Fun Open World Game

    This game is a lot of fun, but it does have some glitches. For me there were and still are texture pop ins. The gameplay is new, fun and challenging. The combat is not hack and slash. Sometimes you will face enemies that are easy to defeat and other times they will challenge you. There are a lot of missions in the game. Expect to spend more than 60 hours playing the game. It is a lot of fun. The developers War Horse are still updating the game and adding free content as well as DLC that does not seem to cost an arm and a leg. The developers listen to their customers and take their constructive criticism into account.

    Disappointing because it had potential

    Original ambitions for a realistic setting, but broken by a punishing save system, sequel-bait anticlimax, and massive chunks of the game's later two acts (including large scale battles) that were just cut for some reason (likely for the sequel, again). I would not have been as frustrated by this if these large-scale battles were not heavily advertised in the lead-up to the game's release. I can't recommend this game on PS4 at all. On PC, there are at least mods to offset some of its missteps.

    I'm very harsh on games for things like graphics and gameplay, so I invited my cousin who is less picky to play. He absolutely hated this game as much as I do. The combat is shoddy, the graphics subpar, and the bugs cringeworthy. At one point we get stuck in a kitchen at the castle and cant get out because the door simply will not open. I will say the story seems well thought out and the voice acting was very good but the game was sadly horrific.

    Bug broke the game.

    My character failed the pickpocket tutorial. This caused the whole questline involved in theivery to be blocked. That was the first bug. The second was getting stuck in a room and not being able to get out. No matter how many times I logged in and out, I was stuck. I just gave up on the game at that point. I had an older save, but I got tired of repeating content everytime I encountered a bug.

    A buggy, yet fun game

    I’m about 20 hours in to this game and I can’t get enough! The game is a deep, complex RPG set in the Middle Ages. The combat is complex, yes, but you also have to pay attention to how hungry your character is, how tired he is, and how clean he is. If you don’t find food, a bed, or a bath to wash up in, it affects the gameplay. Not many games pay that much attention to the details of everyday life! I highly recommend this game, bugs and all.

    The game is fun but it does have some issues to overlook. Things take way too long. Long loading, Auto Save can pause the screen.... But then there are some things that take longer and it a good thing, in my eyes. Like learning skills is hard at first, but you do learn them and they become easier with practice. Fighting, lock picking and even navigating the menus takes some getting used to. Overall the game is fun though and has a good story.

    This game puts you into the role of peasant in 1400 Bohemia. A grand open world adventure with lots of interesting mechanics, you may find yourself as interested in exploring the town and meeting NPCs as you are furthering the actual story. It is evident though that it was built by a small developer, things like draw distances and load times leave something to be desired. Overall very fun, and playable, just a bit unpolished.

    Kingdom Come Deliverance takes place one thousand years ago, in the time of King Wenceslas and the Bohemian empire. The timeline and characters are accurate, and the story and voice acting is very well done. Some features of this game seem archaic (particularly saving your game), but the side quests this game offers are deep and plentiful. Expect to sink a good number of hours into this fine title.

    OLD SCHOLL RPG

    The story is gritty, engrossing, and complex, though it tends to fall back on some old-fashioned ideas of medieval historiography in a couple of places. Notably, the Cumans, a nomadic Turkic people from the Western steppe, are treated as token foreigners at times BUT ALL IN ALL FOR UNDER 25 DOLLARS THESE IS A SAFE GAME TO BUY

    Bought this on a whim because a fellow co-worker had bought it and said it was very good. I have only played about 2-3 hours so far and it is not holding my attention. So far I do not like this game and feel it is a poor game trying to be like Skyrim. I will continue to play when I have nothing else to play. If it gets better I will update post.

    Clunky, Steep Learning Curve

    Decently fun game. Graphics aren't impressive for this generation, game contains many bugs, glitches, lag etc. Easy enough to ignore these and play, until your save files get corrupted (like mine) and get sent back hours of gameplay. Combat takes getting used to but feels realistic. Would recommend for $20 or less.

    This is the future. A kickstarter indie game outcompeting triple A titles. If you love sandbox RPGs where you can play your game any way you want, give this a shot. Does it have bugs? Yeah, but so did Skyrim and Witcher 3. Warhorse is a studio to watch, thus game has the support it needs. Kill npcs, stealth or play the sword and shield hero. Your way, your game.

    SO I just left a review on the xbox one version, I bought the PS4 one for a friend. Its a good game, revolving on realism and historical accuracy. It started off with some bugs and issues but with the patches and updates theyre bringing I believe the game will be solid and worth looking at. Its only 1st person and kind of feels like skyrim besides the controls being very different.
