Blood Knights - Review @ StrategyInformer

by Couchpotato, 2013-11-30 03:58:38

StrategyInformer reviews Blood Knights, and gives it a low score of 3/10.

Thankfully, the game clocks in at around four hours long, meaning it ends before the mediocrity becomes too draining. However, it's likely the short length that contributes to the shallow nature - it tries to fit all the staples of a genre that usually demands massive length into such a constrained time that it doesn't have room to do anything interesting or expansive. Plot points are rushed through, the ending arrives suddenly and unannounced, the two main characters are barely developed, let alone supporting ones, and loot/levelling systems are kept as simple as possible as you'd have no time to learn anything more complicated. Unfortunately for Blood Knights, taking established systems and watering them down just leaves you with a diluted mix that tastes nothing like what it's trying to imitate.
