Games Radar has cranked out a favorable review of King's Bounty: Armored Princess, during which they hand out a score of 9/10 to Katauri's standalone expansion pack.
Maybe Katauri's market research informed them of an elusive gamer who loves dresses and lizardmen, but aren't they aware that Oblivion actually lets you play a dress-wearing lizardman? They haven't made enough changes to force a purchase from anyone who either bought or didn't like the 2008 King's Bounty. Newcomers to the series could buy the original for a third of the price. If you're flush with Christmas cash, pick up Armored Princess. But if you've spent that money on A Guide to Russian Plot Development, get the original instead.
