Summary: This game's strongest asset is its story, rooted in the legends of The Holy Grail and The Knights Templar whom sought it. Unfortunately the game design itself doesn't hold as much weight as the plot does. The combat system feels half finished, level design is full of switch flipping busy work, the upgrade system seems outright broken and ineffectual. Graphics are pretty good, the OST is bland, and the good voice acting is betrayed by glitchy audio.
Summary: Decent hack 'n slash with a fun co-op mode helps make The First Templar worth more than just a single run-through... The story itself is pleasantly uncomplicated. I didn't even bother much with it. What's that? We're a knight in search of the Holy Grail? Whatever. Let's get our swords out and start slashing. You'll visit a variety of locations that genuinely feel different, even if it is easy to spot the direction you're supposed to go. How could it be hard?
Summary: I really like The First Templar game. Even though its not a Top 10 or very popular game it is what it is. I bought it knowing all that so I'm not rating it by that like some reviews. I had no problem with activating it nor installing it on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. My rig is MSI Z87 GD-65, i7-4770k, MSI Twin Frozr GTX760 4gb. Vengeance Pro 2400MHz ram with a EVGA SuperNova 750 watt PSU Gold Modular. I would recommend this game if you like this type of story line.

Summary: Great game for those wanting to play historical period,no trolls ,dragons or wizzards,just plain medevil combat,with tasks for two Templar knights to perform to find the Holly-Grail ,I will not give out the plot since it has twists that are unexpected,but well worth the time to play ,will gain insight in to the Templars' history ,The game is very easy to install since it is windows based and has great graphics,plus un-like other single shooter games you can switch...
Summary: First, let me just say that I enjoyed the game, but a big part of the reason I gave this 4 stars is because I paid around $10 including shipping. If this were more like $20 or $30, I would probably give it 3 stars. As my title states, this isn't a bad game by any means, but it's definitely not a great game either.
