For The King





For The King 


For The King is another one of those Xbox Game Pass video games we got here at Family Friendly Gaming. For The King is an interesting mixture of styles. We have a giant grid based map we move around on. Tiles can randomly change from turn to turn. For example a tile is just fine one turn and then when we come back over it is now a mud pit trap that we must get out of. Monsters spawn on the map quite frequently as well. Monsters can improve their defenses making them even harder to destroy.

When we get into a fight against a monster in For The King we go into a turn based battle system. It seems rather random how well our attacks go against the monsters in For The King. I noticed that even on the easiest difficulty For The King is really challenging. It is very easy to die, get poisoned and ultimately lose. Your team of three characters can revive one another in For The King. This is very handy. I also learned to attack with all three instead of just one.

For The King contains blood, and violence in some very blocky looking graphics. The music is nice, and the fantasy land has its own lore to learn about. For The King can be played in single player, local multiplayer, and online multiplayer. There are some physical copy versions of For The King on certain systems. I found physical copies on the PS4 and Nintendo Switch specifically. For The King is 866 megs in terms of memory size on the Xbox One.

I wanted to like For The King so much. I have to be open, honest and transparent about For The King. I did not like this game. Part of the problem is the annoying difficulty. Another part of the problem is being given goals I was not able to achieve. Why tell me to go somewhere that has a monster way beyond my abilities? Every single turn the monsters seemed to get stronger. There were less and less places I could go where I could win. Without winning there is no gold to buy better gear. Random tile events caused more damage. For The King is frustrating.

The concept behind For The King is very interesting indeed. The meh graphics aside For The King has potential. I like being able to pick characters and classes in the beginning. I enjoyed moving my three people around separately each turn. I never did understand why sometimes all were there to fight and sometimes less than three were there. If you like challenging games that randomize things against you then you might enjoy For The King. I already deleted For The King.
