Read on to find out in my Kingmaker: Rise To The Throne review how I felt playing the game and what's my opinion on it. All in all, I find Kingmaker: Rise To The Throne to be an excellent game and a must-have addition to my gaming library. The sound doesn't manage to match the top quality of the graphics, unfortunately. In my opinion, seek and enjoy!
The CE version of the game is rather light on extra content although there are morphing objects and some fairly "in your face" collectibles to find. I am playing these games to relax and for their entertainment value so I don't want to be stressed to much with puzzles I can't solve. Yes, the game will be a buy for me. I think the game is fantastic. I'm having a lot of fun with it.
Animation is excellent, movement are very smooth. Many of the scenes have puzzles incorporated as well as some interactivity when it comes to finding many of the items. The HOPS are excellent and varied with some being different than those normally seen. I think all levels of players will find this one fun for one reason or another.
One of the best features of Kingmaker: Rise To The Throne is the superb drawing of characters and scenery. I don't like to give too much detail about the specific HOPS or puzzles because it is far more fun to discover for yourself what a game holds in store for you. They were creative. Map: The map tells where the player is and has the special mark when you have something to do there.
The voice overs seems to be recorded by some really bored actors and the soundtrack doesn't excel either. It is a perfect game for a lazy day. The graphics are excellent with good voiceovers but it is a bit odd that the lip-syncing seems to be a hit or miss sort of thing. If you prefer the CE version of games the Kingmaker: Rise To The Throne has collectibles, artifacts and morphing objects to be found.
Most of the HOP's offer a small interactive puzzle to solve. We highly recommend the Collector's Edition as it comes ready with tons of bonuses: a bonus chapter, a strategy guide, wallpapers, videos, concept art, soundtracks, achievements, collectibles, morphing objects, a souvenir room, replayable hidden objects, and replayable puzzles. Not only are there a lot of puzzles but some are different and some are challenging. The game flowed quite well and is very easy to follow.
Graphics are really nice in this game, though, just like the animations.
