Before I start my in-depth review about Rise of Kingdoms, here’s Pros & Cons:
- Choose your own civilization.
- Friendly players willing to help you out.
- Dynamic gameplay.
- Feels similar to popular Sid Meyers Civilization Series, but true to its origin.
- There is whales in the game, but not a major issue if you join top alliances.
- Time becomes a hurdle later in the game as upgrading buildings take a while if you aren’t rich like me.
- Unlocking legendary commanders take a while (but obtainable as a F2P player).
Still reading my in-depth review about Rise of Kingdoms, huh?
Alright, so I have you hooked in now. Here’s why you should play this game — as you can see my pros and cons for this game.
Rise of Kingdoms is a very different game and it isn’t like any other games you normally would see in the mobile game store. That’s because you can conquer land, forge alliance and work as a team.
Being able to mark your territory is one of the unique game feature that follows similar to the Civilizations to showcase your alliance’s strength and to generate resources to build troops, research technologies and advance age.
There are at least 5 different ages you will under go, which changes the design of your city, unlock even stronger troops and grow your power. Each civilizations has their own unique unit that makes the game even more interesting.
And they have their own traits too! Everything you can do in this game is completely Free-to-Play as commanders are completely obtainable, though it will take a while.
Rise of Kingdoms dynamically evolves as your kingdom progress. There’s weather and day cycle that shifts from morning to night. Which adds immersion to the game.
Each troops like infantry, archer, cavalry and siege unit have their own strengths and weakness that further adds in-depth strategy to the gameplay.
Explore the vast map in your kingdom to uncover secrets, gather intelligence and make friends with village in exchange for technologies and troops.
And did I forget to mention that there’s a lot of things to do in the game? In fact you can do:
- PvP Battles
- Go on a Expedition Campaign
- Hunt Barbarians
- Join Alliance Events
- Daily Quests
- Lead your own alliance
- and more!
Sure, Rise of Kingdoms is still pretty new and they are just getting started. For now, there’s 11 civilizations, 45+ commanders, and ton, ton of events to play with. Engage in fierce battles with your enemies to stake your status in the kingdom. Farm, advance and grow as the game progress.
If you are going to ask me what’s my rating for Rise of Kingdoms, I would give it a solid 9.5 out of 10 score. I do think this game has great potential to grow even further with more civilizations to choose from and expand on its existing system.
In conclusion of my in-depth review: Rise of Kingdoms is a dynamic game that evolves over the time, it encourages you to think strategically and develop game plan to claim the entire kingdom for yourself. The features, animation and options that it brings add in-depth combat tactics, making it one of the most fantastic and widely popular real-time strategy game.
