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...

Expert Review

GameSpot
18 May 2011
  • Summary: Two thousand years ago, Jesus drank from a cup. Such a commonplace action may seem trivial, but it transformed an ordinary chalice into the Holy Grail. This sacred object has fueled the desire of countless historians through the years and has wormed its way into just as many fictional tellings of its supposed powers. The First Templar uses the unimaginable delights promised by the Holy Grail to push you through this action-focused role-playing game.
  • 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

  • Summary: The First Templar – восточноевропейский экшен как он есть. Разработчики изо всех сил старались создать действительно увлекательную игру, но у них банально не хватило опыта, терпения и, самое главное, денег. Стоит ли ознакомления First Templar , когда на полках появился Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings – вопрос открытый...

First Templar, The

  • Summary: The First Templar сложно судить обычными мерками, она слишком неоднозначна. Неплохой сюжет — устаревшая графика. Интересные бои — дурацкий «стелс». Большие пространства — линейные коридоры. Но десять часов безостановочного махания мечом вспоминаются с улыбкой, а не с проклятиями. Начало положено, хорошо бы только первый тамплиер не стал последним.

  • Summary: Dopo aver realizzato gli ultimi due episodi di Tropico, Haenimont Games si cimenta con un action adventure che sulla carta cerca di competere con Assassin's Creed, mettendoci però nei panni dei Templari!

The First Templar

gamer-info.com
16 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Болгарская Haemimont Games не самая известная в широких кругах студия. Кто-нибудь наверняка вспомнит о стратегиях под общим заголовком Tzar , но они давным-давно похоронены. Imperium Romanum или Grand Ages: Rome ? Игры не самые плохие, но и они также не получили должной огласки. Единственный по-настоящему востребованный продукт, вышедший из-под крыла компании – это серия Tropico .
