Kingdom Come: Deliverance review - history is a double-edged sword

Brownshoe

2 months ago

But there's also a big problem. There are no people of colour in the game beyond people from the Cuman tribe, a Turkic people from the Eurasian Steppe. The question is, should there be? The game's makers say they've done years of research and found no conclusive proof there should be, but a historian I spoke to, who specialises in the area, disagrees.

All of which means that a shadow lingers over Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Instead of challenging the Dark Age it reinterprets 615 years later, the game seems to delight in it. Instead of seeing notes in the margin of a history book, we get what feels like a glossy pamphlet advertising an escape into an oddly romanticised past. And it's that, ultimately, which makes me too uneasy about Warhorse's work to be able to recommend it.

OMG just wtf Eurogamer are you serious ?

CD Projekt RED’s Konrad Tomaszkiewicz has suggested that DLC is a "post-release service" that shouldn't cost gamers a penny.
"We’ve always believed in free DLCs," Tomaszkiewicz . "The thing is that we consider DLCs as a normal post sale service, which shouldn’t be priced.

Don't call it a comeback: Xbox One's first year

Brownshoe

It doesnt matter what your console of choice is , to me what is worrying is summed up in this final paragraph..............
In terms of hardware sales, this generation has got off to a faster start than anyone expected, and even the second-placed platform is no slouch when it comes to shifting units. But game sales are weak, innovation is AWOL and the once-reliable infrastructure of console gaming is visibly wobbling - in all senses, technical, creative and commercial. The challenge to all of of them is the same: give us faith, give us a reason to care, open our eyes to new possibilities. Entertain us.

@Xs1ght this is from CD Projekt .........People do not need to play The Witcher 1 or 2 before they jump into Wild Hunt; it's perfectly fine. The game has a great introduction that will make them feel right at home, and we're working really hard to communicate this fact.

Each game has had its own story, but if you've played through both the games, or have even read Andrzej Sapkowski’s books, you'll be privy to a lot of stuff others may not get. That being said, the story is still very capable of standing on its own
