Knights Contract was actually a very interesting game. The storyline behind the game was very intriguing. What would of made this game a classic and one for the ages was if they could have resolved the loading. It was like every time you were really getting into the game a load screen would pop up. This happened throughout the whole game. If your thinking you can download the game to your system and it would solve the problem you are surely mistaken. The game in my opinion was a cross between Dante's Inferno, God of War, and Prince of Persia. This game wasn't something players haven't seen or played before, making it very familiar. Whatever you do don't make a mistake like I did and base how the game is going to be based on the cover art, the only thing in my opinion that made the game pop. I guess that old saying is true, "Don't judge a book by it's cover. Because the insides just plane right out sucked. This game surely wasn't worth renting and really made me mad that I actually added it to my Game-Q... Want make that mistake again.
If you love pressing the A button and replaying bosses over and over because your reaction time isnt that of a skinny Steven Seagal, this game is for you. The story isnt bad and the graphics are are good, but things like waiting for a water bubble to fill and babysitting a witch that only dodges AFTER she is punched in the face, definitely sour what could be a fun game. worth playing if you have the patience.
This game was OK for what it is. You basically kill stuff, get souls for doing that, upgrade you powers, then kill more stuff. A decent smattering of boss battles is also thrown in. I didn't like having to find your way through a rather repetitive series of mazes about every other chapter. Lots of back tracking and boredom.
The story was ok and the achievement list was realistic. More than half can be achieved on one play through, but getting all 1000 will require multiple play throughs. I was pretty much done after my first run through so back it went.
Good for a rental and some quick points. Completionists beware you will spend some serious time on this game to get the 1k.
