When I first got the game I thought It might be like the GOW series, but it wasn't. This game had so many characteristics to stand on it's own other than being a clone of another great franchise. The story is amazing and so are the graphics, controls, and combat. Absolutely going to purchase this game! The only reason why I didn't give this spectacular game a 10 rating, is because of three reasons. The first reason was because although I don't really get freaked in games, i have a fear of snakes and these ones in the game known as "Ice Serpents" look very much realistic that it freaked me out. The second reason is because the lead character Henreich can't get defeated really, which is good, but the bad part about that is reviving him. When reviving him you have to mash the x button for a while before he get's back up, and sometimes it's either to late or just in time in your lucky to survive the battle. The last reason is because although it's really awesome that you get to play as Gretchen the main witch, she has great magic to cast upon her enemies, but when she falls or gets hurt in battle she is way to weak, and sometimes takes a while to get back up after getting knocked down by an enemy. But altogether this is a really great game, besides a few little mishaps. I would absolutely recommend this game to hardcore gamers who love rpg's and action and adventure games!

I bought this game entirely on impulse and was very much pleased with it. I admit, it has a few minor flaws and did get frustrating at times, but over all, I loved it! I won't waste any time giving you plot elements, but I will say that the battle system (combining scythe and magic) was one of the more enjoyable I've used. I really don't get why this game got such a bad rep. It's fast paced, original, and the story is interesting. If you enjoy a good hack slash, Knights Contract is for you. Give it a chance.
I was not expecting this game to be as good as it is. Sure, it may be a little too linear, sure it may be a little too easy even on the hard setting. But that doesnt matter because this game makes up for it with an awesome and absorbing story that really pulls you in. After having a few bad games on my Q its finally good to have something Im not sending back the day after I get it.
