Knights Contract

Video Game Generation
2 January 2012
  • Summary: What a poorly designed, ultimately fascist piece of sh** this was. Knights Contract had some potential to be a decent game: the story sounded like it might be interesting, and the animation was nice. Unfortunately, that’s about all you can say for it. Simple tasks have become complicated. There’s a genuine struggle in accessing (and closing) menus, which should not be something you have to even consider.
  • Pros: Well, the animation is nice.
  • Cons: One of the worse AIs in an escort game, Why can’t Gretchen walk on her own?  For that matter, is she suicidal, or just that incredibly stupid?, Why can’t Heinrich walk like a normal person?  For that matter, why does he explode into gory chunks of meat every so often?, No jump button., The map sucks., Why do I need to press a different button each time to close a menu?, It’s fascist to the core.

Knight's Contract

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: Gretchen, who is bent on bringing down the mad Dr. Faust. The protection mechanic works well to add some urgency to the game and it certainly helps that it's protection rather than babysitting. Gretchen is the source of Heinrich's magic attacks and if Heinrich carries Gretchen around, his health bar replenishes faster than when left to refill on its own.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

  • Conclusion: For being upset at having to execute all of her sisters, Gretchen sure seems to love making a graphic display of their demise.
  • Pros: Ping-ponging a room full of enemies with a combination of spell and scythe, and watching them all meet their grisly fate simultaneously, tangled in the vines of Mag Mell's Rose.
  • Cons: Getting knocked down a hole after failing a boss QTE 20 times.

  • Pros: Ripping through Rapunzel with Maar's Lance.

Awful and Awesome in Equal Measure

GameCritics.com
18 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Minukelsus is... a supreme bad-ass?!?
  • Pros: Many of the boss fight "conclusions" are jaw-droppers.
  • Cons: The absolutely wretched signposting in the confusing free-roam levels.

Knights Contract (Xbox360)

EL33TONLINE

  • Excerpt: Knights Contract (no apostrophe) is branded as an action-adventure game and is developed by Game Republic and published by Namco Bandai Games. Knights Contract serves up a good helping of action as you traverse a vast expanse of magically altered environments, but I think a more apt description for this “action-adventure” is rather “hack-and-slash murderous demon slaying romp.

True achievements

  • Conclusion: And doesn't matter how many times you press A, it takes a little bit to come back. All in all, it has it's fun moments, but is very frustrating, no help finding your objectives will annoy at times. Overall this is rental, and if you like it, buy it, otherwise, the overall frustration will drive many average gamers away.

Knights Contract Review

GamerNode
16 March 2011
  • Excerpt: There’s a level of primal satisfaction inherent in any game in which the central task is hacking down hordes of enemies with large, medieval weaponry. In some ways, Knights Contract nails this aspect of play, complete with a burly protagonist, magical combos, and fairly extravagant finishing animations.
