Summary: The plot of this game revolves around Heinrich, a hardened immortal warrior, and the beautiful Gretchen, a reincarnation of a witch that Heinrich previously executed. Its a dark and grizzly fantasy tale, that's both interesting and moving, with two main characters you'll grow to care about, and definitely want to see through to their ultimate destination.
Summary: Pro's: Cool story Cool characters Voice acting works really well for the characters Aesthetically the game is pretty snazzy. Music is decent Magic attacks are pretty cool and work well. Con's Gameplay QUICKTIME EVENTS (INSERT SLEW OF CURSE WORDS HERE ON THIS GARBAGE) Camera Controls (ESPECIALLY during one particular boss fight later in the game where you can't move the camera around.. and get your bearings..
Summary: The problem with this game, is that the graphics are so colorful yet muddled that it's impossible to see what's going on in the action scenes. You just mash your buttons and hope you hit something nearby. It's a fixed-direction game, in that you only really have one direction to follow. Enemies pop up, you defeat them, move on. Maybe you fight a boss now and then. One thing I noticed, is that you CAN'T change the camera controls! Drove me nuts!
Summary: Knights Contract is not a bad game afterall in contrary to the expert's review. As a layman, I found the game quite fun to play wit the hack & slash, just that you have to do some backtracking which I find is needless. Overall it deserved 3.5 rating.
Summary: my feelings towards this game have been mixed very mixed it had a ton of potential but in the end it was let down by crappy AI harsh QTE's and tedium as its the same thin slightly diffrent area find the witch kill it and keep gretchen alive the thing is i am not a fan of escorting and protecting people like RE4 you protect the presidents daughter even though this is annoying you could hide my feelings towards this game have been mixed very mixed it had a ton of potential...
Despite a great concept there are way too many flaws

Summary: The Good: Engaging story, Gretchen's witch powers are fun, interesting duality mechanic, bosses look good The Bad: Sluggish and stiff animations, no aerial attacks, Heinrich's attacks feel useless, bland boring level design, useless map, babysitting Gretchen isn't fun, terrible graphics, spotty voice acting, poorly executed quick-time events This is one of those reviews where there are more bad things than good to say about a game, so I will start with the good.
Summary: The loading screens for this game pop up everywhere. For me this is a problem. just as i start getting into the game,up pops LOADING. I have this on the 360 and it is installed to my hard drive. Don;t know if PS3 has this problem or not. The constant loading screens kill this game in my opinion.
Summary: Solid adventure game with gratifying, gory combat and the story, at times, is genuinely compelling. The aggravating design flaws include unforgiving quick-time events, unintelligent AI, frustrating cheap deaths, and confusing level design. But the drive to see the fate of Heinrich and Gretchen should push u forward, and u will love how the story concludes.
Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. In general, I think this game gets a bit of a bad rap. Is it a great game? Not really, but it's certainly not terrible. It's biggest problem is probably the swingy difficulty combined with some poorly implemented Quick Time Events. The combat system is actually pretty good and the magic system is downright fun. The story is good and keeps you interested. The graphics are hit or miss.
