A Game Review: Kingdom Come: Deliverance



Released in February of 2018, Developed by WarHorse Game Studios, Kingdom Come: Deliverance provides you with an accurate experience of medieval bohemia. The game is in possession of unique mechanics that make the game so great such as eating, sleeping, haggling, etc.

The many mechanics of the game make it unique compared to other RPGs out there making this game very enjoyable and immersive. 

My experience with this game was very nice. It taught me a lot about life as a peasant in medieval bohemia, and what hardships the average person had to go through back then. 


Story (Contains spoilers)

The story of this game is a very long and intriguing story. The story is about a peasant boy named Henry who had little to no skills in combat, living happily in a village with his parents. The name of this village was Skalitz and was raided by Hungarian troops known as “Cumans” and almost everyone he knew died in the raid of his village. He escaped on horseback while being chased by soldiers. He escaped from the soldiers and fled to the nearby village called Talmberg. He wanted to be a knight and started training. If you want to know the rest of the story, I recommend you play this game or watch a playthrough which you can find on YouTube.


Things I like about this game

Kingdom Come: Deliverance has a very large map with so much to explore. There are many bandit camps, cuman camps, small villages, and little nitpicks all across the map for you to find. 


The reason this game intrigued me so much is the freedom you have. You could probably go through this entire game without fighting a single enemy, or even get any weapons, armour, or skill, but that’s boring. You can find pieces of armour or weapons throughout the game, or you can steal or earn Gröschen to buy armour or weaponry. But another thing is even if you have everything you need, you still need to develop your skills of fighting, talking, cardiovascular endurance, and even muscular endurance. You can level up many different skills such as blacksmithing, and cooking, and many different skills that you can level up Henry with. 


This game references real places and was made in partnership with archaeologists who have worked there. The villages are named after real places in the Czech Republic and that is something that I really find interesting about this game.


Things I don’t like about this game

Believe it or not, I have some issues with this game. The story can extend up to 60 hours, and to complete 100% of the game, it takes an average person up to 150 hours. The story can be very very long and can be very hard at times. 

Another thing is how hard this game really is. There is one fixed difficulty and it’s not fun when you have to do combat. Beating up just the average knight can take up to 4 minutes, and you need to use complicated combat methods to beat your opponent. And not to mention the bugs that make this game funny, yet quite annoying. 


Conclusion 

This is an incredible game and I personally enjoyed playing it a lot, and I still haven't finished it. If you don’t have a device that you can play this game on, then don’t play it if you don’t want to. But if you do have one, then I recommend trying this game.
