“Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a story-driven open-world RPG that immerses you in an epic adventure in the Holy Roman Empire. Avenge your parents’ death as you battle invading forces, go on game-changing quests, and make influential choices.” – Warhorse Studios
You play as a Blacksmith’s son, Henry, whose family has been killed during a raid of his home town. The game is based on legitimate locations and some of the characters are real people that you can find in the history books, or on Google, giving it a sort of realism not found in too many games.
Controls- 8/10: Fluid smooth controls, small wtf moments here and there, but to be expected in a game of this magnitude. Though not completely Innovative, they are simple to learn, not overbearing when needing to make clutch button presses, and, for the most part, fairly well placed on the keyboard. One con is during combat, you press Q to block, but still need to run around with W,S,A,D making it difficult at times to do it without keybinding the Q to one of your mouse buttons.
Sound – 10/10: Sound is crisp and clear in my Rig Lava 515 HD 7.1 Dolby Atmos Headset.
Graphics – 10/10: I’m playing on lowest quality, 965m GeForce GTX NVIDIA, and people watching have no idea. The beautiful visual aesthetics and environmental world layout really put you into the 1500’s.
Replayability – 9/10: I have found even by just re-playing the beginning the choices you make can have a different effect on the outcome. That has a High replay value getting a different story, or elongated personal interaction with other characters based on the actions, and reactions to dialog and so forth.
Gameplay – 8/10: At times it can be a little confusing not having enough direction, but, we aren’t used to games like this. We haven’t had one in a while. With a little digging in your quest log, and taking the time to actually read you can figure it out in no time! I see many influences in this game, with a lot of original flare, making it it’s own unique game within the Open world RPG setting. It’s truly massive in thought, and there is a lot to do!
