The First Templar Review

Softpedia
24 August 2011
  • Excerpt: The First Templar is a pretty intriguing game, arriving from Haemimont Games, a Bulgarian developer previously known for more strategic titles like Imperium Romanum or Tropico 3, and trying to carve out its own space in the extremely busy action adventure genre. Being set during the first crusade and focusing on the Knights Templar, the game is also stepping into territory already explored by Ubisoft's much more popular Assassin's Creed franchise, so new game has an even...

First Templar, The

Cheat Happens
11 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Whenever people hear what I do for a job, they immediately think that playing terrible games is the worst part, but I'd have to disagree. I can take the bad games, it's the ones that show failed promise that get me the most. Games like The First Templar . The action centric RPG features impressively fluid combat and some truly promising moments, but all of that quickly comes crashing down rather quickly by shoddy mechanics and questionable design choices.

The First Templar: Kill It With Fire

Game Debate
31 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Holy crap (see what I did there?) I have so much to say about this game. Unfortunately, most of what I have to say about it isn’t too good. There are some things that this game gets right, but they are unfortunately buried under a large mound of things that it completely drops the ball on. Let’s dive right into this.
  • Pros: Decent Stealth System, Puzzles?
  • Cons: Animation and animation, Boring combat, Forgettable plot chars

  • Conclusion: If you break down the individual pieces of this budget-priced RPG, there isn't much that hasn't been done before. The basic structure feels like many other games, and the combat hardly reinvents the wheel. But there's an enticing charm that makes it difficult to pull away once you begin your journey. Strong visual design certainly helps.
  • Pros: Satisfying combat punctuated by brutal finishing moves, Stealth and puzzle sections are welcome diversions, Well-developed characters that occasionally utter humorous lines, Twisty level design with lots of alternate routes, Pleasant visual design.
  • Cons: Iffy collision detection, A scarcity of items to collect.

Zeitgeist Review
16 January 2011
  • Summary: Overall, I had a pretty good time playing The First Templar this weekend. It was a little tough to understand what was going on, as it seemed to jump around a bit and didn’t have proper voice acting. In my build, the graphics didn’t seem quite finished yet as there were drops in frames at times, even on my nice gaming rig, and it looked to be missing something, like maybe the shadows or additional textures.

The First Templar

  • Summary: The First Templar – интересный продукт с неудачной камерой, устаревшей и кривой графикой, древней PC-механикой, а также набором однообразных движений. Ролевая система и побочные задания вносят небольшое оживление, но именно кооперативный режим позволяет получить от игры максимальное наслаждение. Так, что если вам не понравится сингл – дайте The First Templar второй шанс в компании с другом.
