Horrible

Worse, five minutes, ever.

So let me get this straight... In order to fight enemies I have to hold the left bumper to lock on, than pull the right trigger to switch between melee and using my witch's abilities, and finally press a button to use one of the assorted cool-down spells? Mind you, this is all happening in real time while being pummeled and knocked around the screen.

Oh what's that? The first boss smacked me off the roof right as an enemy spawned behind my witch and instantly impaled her while I watched on in horror, rendered useless sailing through the air off screen as the camera couldn't even keep track of me?

My only regret is that the mail has already come and gone today and so I must wait until tomorrow to return this.

Knights Contract: Hack and Slash Fun Time

After playing and finishing Knights Contract, I feel like it was a good experience, but if you have played any action game in the last 5 or 6 years you have seen it all before. This game tries to be unique in it's approach by teaming you with a powerful, but fragile teammate. This mechanic works well until the latter parts of the game where it become much more of a chore and hassle.

The visuals aren't bad, but some of the dull textures and recycled enemies hold it back a bit. The framerate was steady for the most part and the boss battles while uninspired are the high point of what basically amounts to you standard hack and slash gameplay. The game also tries to introduce a points system that rewards the player for playing effectively, but ultimately it's poorly explained and implemented.

Knights Contract is a game that is good for what it is and it was an interesting story that was told, but ultimately you have played this game before and tacking on an escort mission makes the game very sterile.

Reminds me of a cheap Japanese game. Not impressed at all.
