Dunno why, but I had not heard of King's Bounty till I was recently checking Direct2Drive. As a turn based strategy nut I have no idea how this one slipped past my radar. In any case I just picked it up and gave it a whirl for a couple hours. I'll write up a full review later on (maybe the dudes will let me publish it), but lemme quickly say that if you in any way enjoy the TBS genre (games like HoMM and Disciples) this game is right up your alley. What instantly impressed me was the WoW inspired art direction which is over the top in all the right ways. This is a beautiful game and enjoys some of the most detailed and lively texture/UI work I've seen in any game this year. I've only just started with the campaign (as a change of pace I'm trying a warrior) so I don't have any solid words on the combat yet, but my gut says this may be one of those games I get addicted to for a couple weeks.
Here's some screens I just uploaded to the site so you can see what I mean about the artwork.
