King’s Bounty: Crossworlds is the stand alone expansion for the famous King's Bounty: Armored Princess role-playing game that contains an improved version of it, two additional campaigns and world editor.
Short forward: if you're not knowing what kind of game it is, go the last third of this review...
You know, in the early 90's, King's Bounty, along with Prince of Persia, Leisure Suit Larry, Sim City (optionally Civilization or Dune: the battle for Arrakis) and some more... was nearly at every PC around. Yeah. They just were there. Like Windows 95 went out a bit later with the Solitaire, Pinball and Minesweeper.
Right now, the disassociation of human individuals gone further, and you can easily find many gaming people who never played anything that you did. I even forgot when I had started Minesweeper myself for the last time!.. In all that chaos, in all that variety of thousands of games on the market, I think we all should have some safe haven. Some basic ground, some core stuff on your hardware which you can play anytime, anyplace, and almost any mood and condition. The games that you can take with you on the long space flight, without the risk to blow your back, or the PC, or the entire spaceship. Which can entertain you 10 (at least 9) times out of 10.
I'm sorry for the intro this long. The point is... King's Bounty from Katauri might be just one of those "basic games". You can play it calm and easy, and even let it go to your little daughter, without the fear for her morale or braincells. You can play it hard, earning the leading places in the charts, with fantastic K/D score and all. Of all the titles which Katauri released by that name, Crossworlds is the most complete experience. So, if you don't want to buy them all in a bundle, I suggest go for Crossworlds. Or for the first title, the Legend, which is shorter, however.
Well... there's one thing I have to mention there. Just as with Stalker title, Clear Skies and Call of Pripyat - were just the addons to the basic game Shadow of Chernobyl, although in some aspects they had many enhancements. But not enough to call them "Stalker 2 and 3". The same, and even more obvious, goes with the whole line of Katauri's King's Bounty. Crossworlds, basically, is the DLC for the DLC Armored Princess for the basic game King's Bounty the Legend. But all three were released and presented separetely. And while it's fair for the Armored Princess - there were new story, new mechanics and all... Crossworlds is just a bit upgraded Armored Princess, with the same main story, but some more quests, and two additional short arena modes. So, if you have bought and played through Armored Princess before, you'll be disapponted at this rip-off. However, if you haven't had such experience, and just want to choose the one of the whole King's Bounty line, without paying for the whole line... Well, with the Crossworlds you'll get the most of them all.
Oh, well. Finally. What's it all about? King's Bounty is a half-RPG, with one main character, riding on the map, talking to various NPCs, solving their quests, collecting artifacts and other prizes, and fighting all the injustice in the world (in case of this title - of the many worlds). The battles is another half of the game, they are turn-based, with many units at your hand, each of them with various powers and skills... And in that second half all is looking much like glorious and legendary Heroes of Might and Magic... until you know the fact that original King's Bounty was earlier, and basically made HoMM happened. However, they're not the same. HoMM is much more a strategy, with resources, building castles, many heroes by your command... And King's Bounty is the story of one. The mightiest, the bravest... And, again, in case of the Crossworlds and Armored Princess - the prettiest heroine. I would prefer not to spend too much of your time telling of the plethora of gaming mechanics, such as companions, dragon pet, collecting parts of the sea map before sailing further... There are just too many of those "little things". Just say they are gross in complex.
The short conclusion: King's Bounty the Crossworld is one of the best "all-around" games. Casual enough, hardcore enough - just apply the difficulty. A very good adventure through seas, lands, worlds and time. My mark is 8/10, as nothing is perfect, but, just once again - that is one of those games which I would like being installed on my PC while travelling something about as close as Alpha Centauri.

Enlarge the pics in order to see the issue with the text in the upper-middle part of the screen. These weird dot-lines only seem to appear in 1920x1080 resolution. Any idea what it might be? Tried reinstalling.
I keep seeing online that the Paladin class starts with a resurrection scroll that they can memorize, but I don't see it on my character. Am I just stupid, getting the unit mixed up with the class or what?
