Conclusion: It’s not quite enough to make up for the disconnected craziness, but it is pretty sweet. When the dust settles, you’re left with an acceptable action-platformer. It’s nothing too exciting, and the storyline seems weird for weird’s sake, but it’s a beautiful game, and it’s fun, at least the first...
Summary: It’s pretty obvious by now that if you are playing a game from Grasshopper Manufacturing or Suda 51, it’s going to be a pretty interesting experience. Black Knight Sword is no different. While playing this game, I kept saying to myself “whatever these guys were smoking… I want some.

Excerpt: After achieving plenty of success with the stellar Sine Mora , it only makes sense that Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture would team up again. This time around, the result of this pairing is Black Knight Sword , a 2D action-platformer that features some of the best art design of the year.
Excerpt: Development studio Suda 51 has a history of producing the most bizarre and challenging games around, and if you're a fan of games such as Lollipop Chainsaw and No More Heroes , you'll likely want to pick up the company's newest release, Black Knight Sword .
Excerpt: If LittleBigPlanet ’s Sackboy binged on hallucinogens, his world would look a lot like Black Knight Sword . You never know what bizarre creeps you’ll stab next in this sidescroller inspired by the Japanese art of Kamishibai (“paper drama”) and an old tale about a cruel princess your mysterious...
