Wrath of the Righteous Improvements

Wrath of the Righteous improves in a few areas versus its predecessor. The creators worked hard to ramp up the writing and dialogue the characters speak. These changes make the game more engaging and more realistic in the way the characters speak during the game. The mythic pathways you choose also have a greater impact on how the other characters in the game interact with you, making the game more realistic. There are more implications on how your race and class affect your treatment by others, providing a complex social hierarchy to the game.

ArtWork at it’s finest!

One of the most improved areas in the game is the artwork. This is a world-class example of video game artistry. The world bends and flows as you travel through different paths, with rich colours and vibrant imagination. You can tell that the creators really took a page out of other artistically celebrated video games to improve the artistry of this game. That same improvement also went into the management, as it is much more tied into the story than the management of Kingmaker was.

Room for Growth

However, not everything with Wrath of the Righteous was an improvement. Both games have their strengths, and both have their weaknesses. For one thing, the army system in Wrath of the Righteous feels unfinished and lacks the balance that one looks for in this type of video game. The four-unit types in your army are very unequally rated to the point that hell knights and priests are invincible, while footmen and archers get killed left and right. It’s difficult to gameplan when some of your options are useless, and the others feel impenetrable when they come against you. The lack of balance is a problem across the board in this game, making it a bit difficult to chart your path against the enemy strategically. Users wind up altering the game themselves, lowering stats for certain characters and increasing damage for others.

In the gaming space, there was a big scandal with the bugs of the game! Gamers found many bugs and issues with the KingMaker. Team behind the game soon solved all the issues and now the game has no flows!

Benefits of the game

One of Wrath of the Righteous benefits is that the game is so deep that you will never get bored. As you keep exploring, you will find more and more to entertain you to the point where you might wonder how the game makers had time to dive this deep into the game. You have ultimate control over the competition, changing difficulty and gameplay settings to make the game exactly how you want it.

Whether you choose Kingmaker or Wrath of the Righteous, you will have fun exploring the world and tackling the many tasks you have to conquer. Sure, there are things in both games that could be better, but that is part of gaming: finding the flaws and using your gamer mind to overcome them and use them to your advantage.
