Summary: I'm kind of surprised at any great reviews of this game. It's ok but mediocre, at best. A lot of the elements that you may like from games like God of War or Dante's Inferno are there but they're not executed near as well. I'm not a fan of having to watch over someone else, especially AI, and it can get annoying making sure Gretchen's energy doesn't get too low. Carrying her around to allow her to heal completely kills the flow and action of the game.
Summary: There are both positive and negative things about this game, as with any. I found this game extremely enjoyable, I'm on the final boss right now. The only annoying things are - 1. Confusing level design (I only had difficulty on two of the levels) and 2. Precision buttons to defeat bosses. Otherwise the game is INCREDIBLE. You are an immortal dude who protects a witch to save humanity, It's one of the greatest games I've played.
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: I went in to Knights Contract a little hesitant but came out feeling pretty satisfied. The story is pretty good, made me want to actually see what happens next and why. The combat when playing as Heinrich (Knight) is rewarding when comboing with Gretchens (Witch) powers witch in return creates finisher opportunities. When not using her powers in conjunction with light/heavy attacks the combat might not only seem less rewarding but a little clunky at times as well.
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!
A diamond that shines despite some grit on its' surface!

Summary: Ah, Gretchen and Heinrich! You two certainly set me upon quite the quest. We had good times and we had bad times but overall completing your epic errand gave me quite the sense of accomplishment! The above two sentences some up Knights Contract as a whole! While this is not a perfect game or one that had a triple A budget to back it up, Knight's Contract has become one of my precious "sleeper gems" of the year.
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.
