Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Lead hundreds of troops into war, while managing resources, augmenting their forces, and fighting in this medieval 3D real-time strategy game.

The Crusaders begins with the discovery that Dark Legions have massacred a group of villagers living near a former battleground, which has since become sacred land. Politics, rivalry, and vendettas ensue and before long, the short-lived peace in the world is over.

Players can choose which race they would like to play and select one of several character types within each race. From here, it is all about war. Hire or acquire more forces or develop your infantry into more specialized and powerful units as the game progresses.

The 3D battle scenes in this game from fight to death are compelling, realistic and thrilling

In so many words this game is an awesome RTS game for a console. However, if you're a fan of RTS games on the PC (like myself) you may not find the tactical choices you make all that inspiring. Despite this I found it really enjoyable and spent many hours (60+ easy) getting through the 4 single player campaigns, in considering going through it all again and choosing some units I didn't used much. The general gist of the game is to lead an army into battle and whoop some ass. You get ground units ranging from your average claymore wielding knights (yeah baby!) to mortar teams and griffon riders (for the humans) and dark elf cavalry riders, undead ghouls and bone dragons (for the err bad guys). You can customise your army any way you feel like and through each battle you gain experience which you can use to upgrade your troops' skills up to a point where you can unleash the odd meteor storm, healing field or lightning storm...your average arsenal I'm sure you'll agree.
What sets this apart from other games of it's type (I'm thinking Dynasty Warriors 3 here) is you actually get to control the outcome of the battle with a large set of units instead of running around as 1 guy bashing the bejesus out of anything that isn't wearing your team's colours. Unfortunately you only get to physically control one individual, that being one of 4 generals (2 human, 2 bad guys), but they have a fun set of moves that you'll spend a while getting to grips with and finding out which are the most appropriate for a given situation. However, I found myself using the same sets of moves all the time, simply because they worked at dealing the making amount of damage to whatever poor sucker(s) that gets in the way of my greatsword.

3.0 out of 5 stars Choppy Chop Chumps 23 May 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The two Kingdom Under Fire games released only on Xbox have always had a reputation for being difficult real time strategy games that often have gamers stumped at certain points. KUF The Crusaders is the sequel to Kingdom Under Fire: A War of Heroes, a 2001 PC game, which has since changed and altered due to its console status. Developed in 2004 by Phantagram, KUF:TC combined strategic war elements on and off the field with personal hack and slash fighting should your unit come across enemies. In its time it made use of Xbox Live's multiplayer capabilities, which has since been made defunct, to fight against other players troops and characters. PEGI recommends it for persons over the age of 12, despite an abundance of fantasy gore (mostly blood spray, burning and deaths) and the odd expletive in some heated discussions.

PLOT & SETTING
Set on the continent of Bersia, the races and nations of humans, elves, dwarves and orcs are at odds for taking over the land and in some cases locating, chasing, understanding and/or destroying a sacred artifact known as the 'Ancient Heart'. The standard humans are based in Hironeiden, with loyalty to the king and a standard, christian-like religion. Ecclesia is home to more extreme religious humans, blindly swearing loyalty to the Patriarch, a madman twisted in his fixation with the Ancient Heart. The dwarves and high elves however remain rather unknown but are considered comrades to the human alliance. The Dark Legion consist of several orc and ogre tribes in Hexter, led by war-chiefs, these are mostly brainless stooges who only care for their land but pledge allegiance to the darker forces. The dark elves are stationed in Vellond, under rule of vampires and their subjects (half vampires).

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular, truly Splendid 26 July 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Kingdom Under Fire series is definitely one the best game series ever made and both of the Xbox games have been superb. This is undeniably one of the best games ever made. You will not find another game that is able to blend so many features, elements and genres together and pull them of with the same level of perfection that The Crusaders and Heroes does. The people who dislike this game either haven't play it or couldn't get past the first level because it was too hard for them. Well the KUF games have always been difficult so real gamers should be able to handle them whereas gamers who play CoD and Skyrim probably wouldn't be able to as they're used to things being easy where the game holds their hands.

In summary: Kingdom Under Fire The Crusaders is an action, RTS, RPG. The recent Kingdom Under Fire (Circle of Doom) strayed away from the RTS elements though and just built the action and RPG elements up providing a rather mediocre experience gameplay wise (although the story was pretty good so long as you manage to understand it).

So what makes this game good? Firstly, it has a well written story which draws you in as it progresses and then ends with an epic finale. The characters are interesting and each have their own personality and goals which continue on through the series. The voice acting for the main characters is done well (also consider that this is English dubbing that is actually excellently performed) and emotions are displayed realistically. Secondly, the missions are simply great. The first two characters you can play as have pretty easy missions for the most part although later on they become harder. For the last two characters (Kendal and Regnier) the missions are much harder and require much more strategic thinking.
