Kingdom Come: Deliverance – Review Roundup!

Its that time again, Kingdom Come: Deliverance was just released today, but most of the gaming and review websites have already received copies and have been playing it for the past week! As per usual, I want to go over a few of the reviews in progress right now from some of the biggest review websites online. Below, you’ll see the Authors name, the website and if applicable; their score for Kingdom Come Deliverance.

Gaming Nexus – Randy Kalista – 9/10
Kingdom Come: Deliverance

“Kingdom Come will break you down. It will humble you. It will remind you that you’ve got a lot to learn. Whether that means making your fingers do more WASD gymnastics than you’ve ever done in a first-person game, or giving you the down and dirty as to the extended services provided in the bathhouse. It acknowledges what a thorough hell it is for women living under a complete patriarchy. It’ll also give you a feel for what it was like to walk through the streets of the Late Middle Ages, with its still-primitive technologies and its utter lack of plumbing.”

Hardcore Gamer – Jordan Helm – 3.5/5
Kingdom Come: Deliverance

“Had the initial forty-to-fifty hour campaign not delivered the level of bugs and problems present in the current build, you’d easily be looking at potentially one of the year’s best all-around experiences in an RPG and an essential for everyone no matter your affiliation with the genre. As it stands, visually, technically and mechanically sound as its foundation is, Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s performance is an unruly and occasionally unpredictable beast.”

Windows Central – Rich Edmonds – 3.5/5
Kingdom Come: Deliverance

“Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s large open world is packed full of things to do in a setting many can relate to. It’s by no means perfect, which is unfortunately down to the sheer scope of the project for such a small team of developers. Still, you’re going to get many hours of entertainment from this game. It’s available now for around $60.”

The Sixth Axis – Dave Irwin – 4/10
Kingdom Come: Deliverance

“If Kingdom Come: Deliverance has a ton of bug fixing to improve the performance drastically, it could be a hidden gem. It’s clear that the game, despite its grand ambitions, was simply not ready for public consumption. Shimmers of brilliance are there and had it seen more time in the oven, or set its expectations at a more reasonable level, it could have been brilliant and scored significantly higher as a result. Alas, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is another cautionary tale rather than a trendsetter.”

IGN – TJ Hafer – Review In Progress
Kingdom Come: Deliverance

“My overall impression so far is pretty positive. The amount of work that’s gone into the worldbuilding and depictions of medieval society (with a couple exceptions) is downright impressive. Little touches that ground me (like the fact that having dirt on your clothes lowers your persuasiveness when talking to the nobility, forcing you to actually do laundry sometimes) are highly appreciated and help transport me more fully to the era being depicted.”

PC World – Hayden Dingman – Review In Progress
Kingdom Come: Deliverance

“Jank aside, I think it’s a pretty incredible undertaking though. Kingdom Come’s flaws arise from its depth, from ambition, from its unique aesthetic and ideas, and I’d rather deal with its problems than play an ultra-polished experience that simply retreads old ground.”
