  • Conclusion: Knight's Contract is pretty much the opposite of what gaming is suppoed to be; entertaining and escapism.  Namco Bandai has failed to created anything that's actually enjoyable in Knight's Contract, likely due to poor QA and so many design revisions that the original concept of the game has mangled beyond all belief during the development process.  It's absolutely frustrating to play through and ultimately joyless.

Knights Contract Review

PlayStation Universe
3 March 2011
  • Summary: Knights Contract is essentially one, giant escort mission plagued by a myriad of gripes including horrendous AI. and repetitive combat. Despite its interesting concept, there is not enough on offer to salvage the game from the sheer magnitude of problems encountered throughout.
  • Pros: The very basic story and concept, The creatures and bosses look interesting
  • Cons: The broken AI that practically kills the game, The glitchy camera, Copious amounts of loading screens

Knights Contract Review

G4
2 March 2011
  • Summary: Knights Contract subverts the hack-and-slash genre by making its lead invincible, shifting the focus to protection. Sadly, it winds up being a 16 hour escort mission with poor AI, irritating bosses, incessant load times, punishing quick-time-events, and bland level design. Successful combos and a finishing moves pack a lot of oomph, but even their flourishes can't hide Knights Contract's blemishes.
  • Pros: Satisfying combat, Intriguing premise, Bosses look inspired
  • Cons: Quick-time-events after boss fights, Frequent load times, Weak chapters where characters are separated, Boring level design

Test : Knights Contract

Game Blog
9 March 2011
  • Conclusion: Knights Contract avait de beau atouts, vu de l'extérieur. Une sorcière sexy aux pouvoirs intéressants, mais finalement trop limités, un chevalier servant ultra balèze, mais sans inspiration dans son style de combat, un univers atypique et une réalisation correcte, qui s'avèrent finalement tous deux dépassés.

TEST: Knights Contract

play3.de
6 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Gretchen, Doktor Faust und Rapunzel – Die japanischen Entwickler Gamer’s Republic greifen für „Knight’s Contract“ tief in die deutsche Bücherkiste. Ob diese Kreativität alleine ausreicht, um das Hack’n'Slay zu einem ernsthaften Konkurrenten für „God of War 3“ zu machen? Das erfahrt ihr in unserem Test!
  • Pros: Als klassisches Hack’n'Slay macht „Knight’s Contract“ eine gute Figur. Dabei ist es nicht ganz so dynamisch wie „God of War 3“ oder „Devil may cry“. Es erinnert vom Spieltempo eher an „Darksiders“. Heinrich bringt dabei die Muskeln und eine überdimensionale Sense. Gretchen kloppt auf Tastendruck mit Zaubersprüchen dazwischen. Diese sind bedeutend mächtiger als Heinrichs Standard-Attacken. Ein Klick und schon wirft Gretchen eine Zauber-Bärenfalle aus oder spießt die Mo...
