Why do I even own this? That was the question going through my head when playing this. A terribad something that tries to cater to all kinds of people, falls flat in every respect and tries to cover it up with huge mammary glands (more like Boob Knights, am I right?). At one moment in time this might have had potential - but as it stands it's a less than average mix of action, twinstick shooting, hack'n'slash, RPG elements and a silly B-movie plot.

It's not that these elements are wrong, but they don't click in Blood Knights. Everything is so limited, and doesn't fit the scale of this game. You have RPG elements - but it's not like you can actually grind for XP, you will reach max level by the end of the game anyway. You have skillpoints, but skills don't do much besides giving you that awesome +2% crit-chance you always wanted and none of them alter gameplay drastically. There is loot too, but it is again so limited and hardly game-changing, you do more damage and can survive longer for the most part. All of this feels tacked on and kind of out of place - after all, you basically go from stage to stage clobber everyone and everything up, take their stuff and watch unfunny and stiffly animated cutscenes, rinse and repeat. Why do I need levelings and loot? Right, I don't.

The action itself is pretty okayish, the hack'n'slay parts I don't really care about, too lightweight and buttonmashy. However, the female vampire sporting the dual-crossbows felt nicely "twinstick-shooter" and quite fun to play. If they had only stuck to that mechanic and built a pure action-game around that. Instead, you get some lacklustre platforming, simplistic switch-puzzles, the aforementioned RPG-stuff and even an empty, barren "hub" that you can return to in order to trade with excatly one merchant and grab one of like three sidequests (the one I did was "shoot 4 torches" - amazing, I know!). If this was an amateur project to experiment with various gamesystems and ideas, I could understand the patchwork-like design choices and the limited variation but as a retail product I don't get it. I mean, you have a handful of enemies that you fight again and again in small arenas, there are maybe 4 bosses that vaguely could be called that, and you usally fight in the same-ish areas (ruins, mountains or mountain-ruins with a random castle-intermission thrown in every now and then) - why on earth would you makes this a game that only does everything?

A whole other topic is the non-sensical storyline (lots of relics, the catholic church in rome and well, vampires!) and the particularly embarassing portrayal of female characters in this. It's the worst kind of "forever alone"-material outside of certain japanese games that I have seen in a long time. When your characters defining traits are "big boobs" and "bigger boobs" you are doing it wrong. The first half of the game the dialogue between the male hero and female hero could be summed up as "shut up, woman!" which is not my idea of witty banter. Needless to say this fits the overall quality of the game quite nicely.

For the fan of abyssmal b-movie trash turned videogame this might actually be a little gem (if you have enough beer at hand), it really is that cringeworthy. But for anybody else, I see little appeal. None of the system implemented are fleshed out enough to justify a purchase AND there are tons of alternatives that do them better anyways.

Why bother with Blood Knights? I have no idea. Save your money or spend it on Vampire: Bloodlines or the Legacy of Kain-series instead.

For starters, I did not know what does it mean that when Kalypso is one of game makers it surely will be a mediocre title. Soon enough I was given an opportunity to experience that. Blood Knights is one of those vamphyric games that I like. Running along and killing bad guys, monsters, warewolves sure is fun. And it is in this game. What is more, graphics are really juicy, and beautiful. But when it comes to the story itself it is as shallow as a hole dug by a child in a sand with a little spatula. Come on guys, you could have done better! It takes about 4 hours to finish this game on medium level of difficulty. At this rate heroes have best equipement and burst through waves of enemies without sweat. Dear player, a fan of vampyric games, if you are reading this, please mind that it would be better if you spend your money firstly on LEGACY OF KAIN series and then come back for BLOOD KNIGHTS. Cheers!

Before we start let me use my healing powers..

This game is overall something I have been wanting for a while but stopped for a few reasons

pros: easy to learn
A decent story
A dynamic dialouge between your main character and your companion
Some really fun moments

Con: YOU DIE... YOU DIE BY FALLING OFF AN EDGE AND LANDING 1 METER....

That of course happened right before a save spot, the issue with this game is that you're not allowed to save unless you find one of those save slots.. :( that's just a big no no from me... If just they had a fixed save like F3 for quicksave...

due to that reason I am no longer playing it :( I will reccomend it, but not if you're bothered about the savings. so it's a neutral thumb for me.
6/10

I'm actually enjoying this game more than what the reviews on Steam give it credit for. However, I can understand why people would suggest that it is a poor game. However, having only bought this from the Indie Gala Blood Knights Bundle because it was a part of the Steam Trading Cards program I have to suggest that it's been worth my while. I'm not certain that I'll finish this but for now I'm satisfied.

It's your typical A-RPG style game. The camera is a negative - I wish it were controllable but it apparently isn't. If there are "secret" areas that can be found the camera is a hindrance in that department. The first boss battle was more pot luck mashing buttons than knowing what to do. The game tells you to destroy the alter but doesn't give you anything else to explain how to do so.

If you don't expect an epic game, it isn't, you wont be disappointed. I can think of many other games that are worth less time than this one.

A little over priced for how short it is, but other wise a wonderful goth-vampire game, with immensely action oriented combat. How you can use the swapping of the 2 characters is really cool, and the storyline is pretty adventerous.

Blood Knights je příjemná hříčka, která si nehraje na žádný mega titul. Příběh hlavního dua upírů stačí jako linka pro rubanice ve stylu hack and slash. Jen s tím rozdílem že od Diabla či Torchlightu tu není tolik lootu ani nepřátel.

Při volbě v coopu jsou obě postavy v akci, když se ale do hry pustíte sólo můžete si vybrat, kterou zrovna využijete. Jeremy je bijec takže vždy si porcuje nepřátele zblízka za pomoci mečů, kdežto Alysa kropí nepřátele z dálky ze svých dvou kuší. A jiné zbraně do ruky nedostanete. Jen jejich silnější verze, to platí i pro brnění a podpůrné předměty. Strom schopností a vlastností obou hrdinů je velmi jednoduchý, žádné složité větvení nebo povolání se zde nekoná.

Že obě hlavní postavy jsou žíznivé potvory utváří i styl hraní. Jsou náchylné na oheň, zabije je pád do vody, a životní energii si doplňují právě vysáváním krve z nepřátel. Tato dvojice se zrovna nemusí, a občas jsou jejich rozhovory vtipné a zpestřují atmosféru. Příběh hezky utíká, a dokonce se tu objeví i zajímavé postavy. Je tu i pár situací kde dojde na možnost volby jestli se hráč víc zachová jako člověk nebo upír. Což je vždy fajn mít možnost se nějak rozhodnout.

Co už tolik fajn není je kamera, ta občas změní úhel, že doskočíte do propasti nebo se nevyhnete zrovna pasti. Naštěstí se ale tohle stane jen občas. Prostředí které hrdinové navštíví jsou jen několik oblastí, jelikož se konec tohoto dobrodružství dostaví po pěti hodinách. Přesto musím říct že mě hra příjemně překvapila, je ale nutno ji brát jako menší kousek který vlastně i dost prošuměl ze strany herních médií. Což je škoda jelikož se určitě nejedná o špatnou hru. Své hráče si určitě najde.
