I've played KOF: Heroes and it wasn't a bad game. Nothing to write home about but still fun.

I wish Ninety Nine Nights had taken the same route.

PS: Circle of Doom is said to be different from the past games, more RPG oriented. For those interested, here is a random preview I dug on the net: http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/736/736417p1.html

The Kingdom Under Fire games for the Xbox were really great. They managed to mix the action and strategy elements pretty well, and it actually did require a bit of planning for the battles and allowed you to use your own tactics to fight. I liked that the characters played differently as well, and the campaigns were surprisingly long. Multiplayer in the first game was a bit disappointing since they lowered the max players from 4 to 2, but it was still somewhat entertaining.

Circle of Doom is a bit of a spinoff though, a pure action game set in the KuF universe that doesn't really carry over the series RTS roots. But from what I hear they're making another KuF game that's more like the Xbox versions which Circle of Doom sets up for, which I'm glad to hear since I'd prefer a action/strategy hybrid game like The Crusaders and Heroes since that worked out pretty well. I'll wait to see how this game does, it might be a nice distraction while waiting for the real KuF game to come out.
