Когда я покупала эту игру, я искала намёк на RPG + относительно короткое прохождение + совместная локальная игра. Если ваши пожелания сходны с моими хотя бы частично, Blood Knights вам очень даже зайдёт. Простенький сюжет про вампиров скрашен некоторой нелинейностью и возможностью выбора стороны, за которую в итоге вы будете проходить. Желаете побыть мрачным и брутальным вамиром? Немного фантазии и игра вполне позволит вам это. Мечтаете истреблять кровососов? Тут даже фантазии не потребуется, этим вы будете заниматься всю игру.
Из плюсов так же могу отметить забавные бронированные бюстодержатели нашей спутницы, а так же милых боссов-дам со всё теми же забавными бюстодержателями.
Несмотря на простоту игры, она мне очень понравилась. Так что я её однозначно бы порекомендовала любителям жанра.

Сначала о хорошем. Неплохая графика, немного набивший оскомину типовой сюжет напрягает не слишком сильно. С первых шагов понятно, что игра проста и линейна(за исключением выбора стороны в побочных квестах человек/вампир) и поэтому карты с узенькими проходами без выбора пути даже как-то не бесят. На этом плюсы в принципе кончаются, начинаются минусы.
Начну с того, что поскольку это порт с консоли, я первые 4 акта привыкал к этому убогому управлению, когда камера перемещается не зависимо от твоего желания и герой бегает из-за этого вихляя. Как я с этим кривущим управлением скакал по скалам к сундуку в 1 акте, это вообще отдельная песня. Я убил полчаса, чтобы пропрыгать по 3 камням и обратно ибо от камня к камню камера перескакивает на другой ракурс, WASD управлением задать точный вектор прыжка по началу аццки сложно.
В игре присутствуют 3 кооп ачивки. Вроде-как круто, кооп же! Но не тут-то было. Кооп в игре доступен только локаный, с 2 джойстиков которые надо подключить к компу. У вас нету двух джойстиков или только один и вы хотите управлять джойстик + клавиатура? А вот фиг вам, вы никогда не получите эти ачивки в таком случае, кооп доступен только если вы подключите 2 джойстика.
Весь сюжет пробиграется за 4-5 часов не напрягаясь. В окне торговли зачем-то отображают надетые вещи, хотя пока они надеты, продать их нельзя. Если играешь один, то бегаешь соответственно за одного персонажа, но во всех диалогах и роликах присутствуют оба тем не менее. Вот все что приходит первым на ум. Игра на один раз, Вышедшая с ковеера и призванная быть сброшенной в утиль вскоре после использования. 4/10

Хорошая штука, если вам нечем заняться вечером. Игра короткая, по стилю немного напоминает Ван Хельсинга и немного Диабло. Два основных перса, между которыми можно переключаться. У каждого своё оружие и броня, которую можно заменить на более мощную по ходу игры. Абсолютно не напрягает выносящими мозг головломками или дичайшим паркуром как, например, в Castlevania LOS.
З.Ы. Не хотел проходить игру, но главная героиня убедила остаться тем, что она по-разному выглядит в разной броне ^^

Отличная игра, хорошая идея, неплохой геймлей, малый бюджет.
Малая продолжительность к сожалению. Чтобы пройти всю игру на обычной сложности с дополнительными квестами ушло всего 4 часа.
Все-таки в игру стоит поиграть. 8/10.

I recommand this game only if the following criterias are filled:

[ ] This must be one sale (bought it 0.74€, won't be worth more than 5€)
[ ] You shouldn't have any expectation. If you're expecting something like Fable, Castlevania or whatnot, well... This is not the game you're looking for.

If you match both the critearias listed above, you're good to go.

Pros:
***Customization system (equipement and skill trees). Weapons and armors have a cosmetic effect on the characters which is a plus.
***Ability to switch between characters at will (with a small cooldown). The two characters have different gameplay and can do have separate skill trees, skill points and inventory.
***The graphics aren't fantastic but they are FAR from ugly.
***Fixed camera doesn't impair the gameplay (exception : see below, in "Cons" section)
***Supports local coop multiplayer
***Fun to play

Cons:
***I needed 5 hours to complete the game, howlongtobeat.com says 4 hours. That is short.
***Not a surprising game.Classic storyline, classic skills/upgrades etc... Nothing really original.
***No "New Game +" or replay value (except choosing different skilsl in the skill trees or collecting all blood coins)
***Cheesy dialogues and sometimes odd voice acting
***Doesn't support online multiplayer
***[KEYBOARD ONLY] Fixed Camera + Platforming sequences = Frustration


I rate this game 55/100

One of the worst games I've played in a long time. It is horribly generic. I bought a $3 bundle with this game in it because it looked good in the videos on the store page. It is a flawless example of good looking video then you actually play it and it's sh-ttingly bad. Its regular price of $15 is laugh out loud funny. The combat is extremely clunky and generic like something you would find at the bottom of a flea market bin like a unknown action game from 2001, and a bad one at that. If I had to pick a game to describe what "cheap feeling" is, this game is it. The voice acting is some of the worst ever and the sound and music are instantly forgettable. The graphics are dirt poor and the character mouth and body movement in cut scenes looks like sock puppets. All you do is hammer X to attack and press a few other buttons for skills. I'm not saying that that is what makes it bad though. There are a lot of great games that are button mashers. But when a game is this terrible, the fact that you mash buttons the whole time gets easily amplified into a hugely negative aspect because combat is so incredibly clunky and generic.

If you like sock puppets and soul crushingly generic gameplay, stop wasting time reading this review and buy this game right now. If you want a similar type of action button masher that actually does things right and has a good high quality feel to it, buy RAW Realms of Ancient War. That is just a good one off the top of my head. There are plenty more if you look. Don't look here though. It's like paying $15 at the carnival to go looking into the freak show to see something cool and all there is on stage are two guys fisting and blowing each other.

This is one of those "so bad it's good" games.
Or maybe it's a "so bad it sucks" game?
Perhaps you should give it a go and draw your own conclusion.

While I'm a non-smoker that wears glasses and is (probably) not your dad, I'm not an expert critic. My opinion is neither better nor worse than any other (IMO).

Unfortunately this isn't the end of the review.

Blood Knights follows the misadventures of Jeremy. He was a vampyre hunter but now he's Alysa's little ♥♥♥♥♥. This might be Jeremy's story, but Alysa seems to be the one with all of the advantages. The most obvious is that she has a sweet pair of.... auto-crossbows. If you don't mind the sound of "thwip thwip thwip" for nearly 4 hours straight, Alysa is your go-to gal for massacring all of those pathetic humans, stupid were-wolves, butt-ugly undead, and wimpy demons. Jeremy is more of a diplomat. He does most of the talking while Alysa looks at him with this constant "Is this geek for real?" face.

The plot (I nearly forgot!) involves finding and protecting something called a blood seal. It's like a bandage that protects the world from devastation. Somebody or something wants to cause the deluge, which could kill millions of humans. Somehow Vampyre veteran Alysa and vampire-newbie Jeremy have to work out their differences and straighten this mess out. While there is a village for purchasing supplies and a map-screen, this is a very linear game. You can't revisit previous areas to find stuff you missed or grind out some extra experience levels. Jumping all over the map would probably take focus away from the story. That was the part where you chuckle to yourself.

Anyway, each level involves lots of killing, platforming, switches, and traps. Attribute-boosting blood coins can also be found if you're willing to poke your nose in various places. Otherwise, expect the majority of your acquisitions to be equipment upgrades. Level-ups award skill-points, which can be used to unlock skills (fascinating!). Early on you might have a little trouble, because enemies do heavy amounts of damage. This game suffers from reverse difficulty. As you progress, the game gets easier and easier. After awhile, the enemies just seem really in-effective. Most of your deaths are going to come from the janky platforming sections, and a handful of traps.

The bosses of Blood Knights are the biggest losers on the planet. At one point you fight a succubus. Wait...Actually you impale a Succubus a hundred times while she floats in the air and does NOTHING. Before that, there's a fight with some big dude who was probably Jeremy's buddy. His attack pattern is spinning around with his axe, and doing some leaping move. In the very next stage there are enemies that have that exact same move-set! The final boss is also a bum. He runs like he's skipping through a garden of posies. He's referred to as "Rome's Greatest Warrior", which is just the biggest insult to Rome imaginable.

On its own, this game isn't good. It's still enjoyable though, thanks to how unpolished it is. The voice-acting is hilariously bad, the cut-scenes are silly, and there's this wonderful aura of ineptitude throughout the game. One of my favorite moments is

SPOILERS

when you defeat the Succubus. She's talking about where the bad guys took the Blood Seal, but then makes one last attempt at seducing Jeremy. For her trouble, she gets a bolt in the chest. Jeremy gets angry at Alysa for a hot second and then says "It's just... she might have known all their plans. Now we'll never know." Alysa responds with "At least we know the last thing that went through her head."

That joke might have worked IF SHE WAS SHOT IN THE HEAD!

But, I think that's what makes it funny. If Alysa shot the succubus in the head and then made the joke, I'd probably just say something like "Seriously?" or "Oh...oh that was a joke...oh God." or *GROAN*. This screw-up completely justifies the scene.

Blood Knights is not a game I can recommend on normal terms. I'd compare it to a B-movie, but it's about twice as long, and requires you to hold a controller and press buttons. It's certainly not a good game, due to the complete lack of challenge and compelling game-design. This is something you can play high, or drunk, or on some experimental drugs not even fit for sponge consumption. Maybe that's appealing to somebody out there? I don't know.

All I know is that I actually don't regret the time I spent with this game. That's saying a lot, considering how short and precious a life is. I won't give it a thumbs up though

There are those games who do have potential and are somewhat fun, but fails in the end. Blood Knights is actually such a game. The biggest problem in Blood Knights is the camera, which is clunky at it's best and not accurate at all. In the beginning i had this problem of instead jumping on a platform above you that my char falls into the big black hole. And that happened a couple of times in an other level too.
The dialogue gets on your nerves sometimes. The fighting is ok i guess. The AI however is as dumb as an ox.
No, Deck13 didn't do a good job this time. Now Venetica was also not everything, but that one was better.
Nevertheless it's a little fun game to play, if you look past the errors. Characters itself look quite good and the landscapes are interesting. Story is ok, not very interesting. But that camera, that nails it. And that dimwitted dialogue.
If you're a fan of vampiregames and look for a game to play with a vampire, then there are better options.
Vampire the masquerade: bloodlines for rpg and the first 2 BloodRayne games (available at gog) if you want an action game. If you just look for a little fun game, it might be worth a try.I would suggest then to wait till it drops in price or there's a sale. If i recommend this one? Not really, but it just depends what you expect.

Blood Knights is pretty bad. The story is trite and filled with wooden characters and campy dialogue. The enemy AI is as basic as it gets, so most enemies can be shot to death from a distance and most bosses (including the anticlimactic final boss) can be killed easily by kiting them or running back and forth while attacking. Game progression is linear, and peppered throughout are a small series of choices for the player to make, though they only make a difference to the story if you make particular combinations of choices. Sound is buggy, and frankly, so are many aspects of the game. It's full of gameplay ideas that probably sounded great when they were pitched, but by the time the game was done, everything just ended up as a severely underpolished and generic hack n' slash. For all of its many faults, I will say that Blood Knights provides brief glimmers of really satisfying gameplay, and I did have enough fun playing it to devote just under 5 hours to beating it. It's probably worth at least one playthrough for most people, but with all that went wrong, I'd have problems recommending it at its ridiculous price of $14.99.

Really poor job job making this for the PC. Really limited control and poor camera angles mixed with awful dialogue. Skip this one or just play it on the console.

Do Not Buy!

This game... oh god it's bad. There is just too many things with this game that do not make it fun. I've gave this game a shot, but I just could not do it. Here is just some of the problems that make it so.

- It's a X-Box 360 Arcade game, that should say alot in what to expect.
- Not interesting. The story, characters, dialogue, NONE if it is interesting at all. The game did not give me any reason to be invested in anything. Things happen and all I said was "Huh?" The farther I got into the game, the more and more I just didn't care, and just wanted to skip everything... or quit playing. Nothing is ever really explained, nor do they expand on anything that I would guess that the game you should know already.
- Graphics are not as good as the screenshots make it appear. I have played around with the 1 graphical slider this game has, yes ONE slider, and I have not seen a single difference in anything. I could not get the game to look as good as the screenshots in the store page. I've even had where the lighting in a cutscene completely disappears when it's done.
- The animations, man the animations. Why does everyone walk/run like they have a stick up their ars!
- The dialogue all sounds like it's phoned in. The voice acting is /wrist worthy. There is no emotion in anything. In some voices, you can hear an echo from the room they were recording in!
- Fighting is repetative and controles are bad. Playing as the male guy (already forget/don't care his name) plays your normal hack and slash game, but the female vampire (again) tries to have Twin Stick shooter controls, but they simply do not work well with Cinamatic Camera Systems. She has auto lock on, and won't always lock onto what ever you are pointing at, which is anoying. I've had to aim pretty far off of enemies before the lock on would even work.
- LOCAL COOP ONLY! Are you kidding me?! If there was online play this game would be a little more fun to play with a friend, but you can't.
- Maps/Levels are not too interesting. But my main issues is some of the "platforming" sections. Having these bad controls, and trying to jump platform to platform, only to have the camera move, and fall to your death. AND find out that the last checkpoint was 5 min ago. I've had checkpoints not go off, even going up and touching the checkpoints and still not activating, forcing me to play to the next point and hope it works.
- Borderline ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ AI. I've had enemies get stuck on rocks, run off cliffs, run into water and drown themselves. I've even had enemies clip through the floor and walls.
- Bugs, oh so many bugs. I've actually KILLED NPC that give you dialogue in a cutscene, and it played through normally, but you can see them dead on the ground.


The only "good" things I've been able to get out of Blood Knights are as follows:
- Steam Trading Cards
- Achievements
- All female characters wear very reveling clothing/armor and have big chests?
- Items look pretty cool, and do change what your character looks like.
- There is a speach volume slider. It does go all the way to off.

... That's it I'm afraid. I personally say do not buy at all, but if you are curious and really wanna hurt yourself, as always wait for a Steam Sale. This is not worth $16.99 (CAN), or even $5. I gave this game a good try, but I can't play it. Glad I got this from a bundle.

The gameplay for Blood Knights is decent. Its a hack and slash with some puzzles and a few tricky jumps here and there. I used an xbox gamepad, I'd imagine it would be very hard to play with keyboard/mouse. Coop requires teamwork to get around the world, you use vampire powers to push or pull your partner over chasms, whereas in single player you can just jump without help. A little bit of character skills and stats to choose as well as weapon upgrades.

The story is ... off. The voice acting (particularly the bosses) is mostly very poor with a few times when its just ok. Its worse than B movie cheesyness. I'd say its a strong D movie in how poor the story and voice acting are.

I got all the achievements with 16 hours of gameplay. Roughly going through the game 1 1/2 times.

I'd recommend this game for its gameplay only, Cutscenes/story are horrible. Being able to get all the achievements in less than 20 hours is a plus.

Its an Hack&Slash RPG game.

Game it quite hard on HARD level settings ... but still can be beat able pretty easy (my case). All the way you still got a plenty of health (but this depends how good you are in H&S games ... if you suck this "plenty" of health will be still not enought for you),

Game is then still quite good ... and its pretty addicting and still fun.

BUT !!!

I like to kill the dude who "create" this stupid stative camera view ... OMG !!! stop playing PS and XBOX games ... and try sometimes real gaming = PC GAMING !!! ...

CAMERA IS STUPID !!! because is fixed on some positions that change depends where your hero is standing.

FOR THIS CAMERA GAME SUX !!!

But still pretty fun H&S game when you wont on that camera. Buy best in sale.

HUGE + for controller option (big picture)

I read many gamers saying that this is a low budget and very lousy game. Not worth buying. But I'm the kind of person that will never believe what other might say. I will trust and believe only myself. And I've found out that this game as for myself and my point of view is great! It's awesome. I don't feel that the camera and the voice acting was lame. It's a nice and exciting game for me. As I progress down the chapters in the mission, it is getting more and more interesting! I really loved the blood sucking skill. Because it is exactly like the game "Legacy Of Kain" The way the vampire Kain suck the blood from mortal beings excites me a lot! So I say that this game is nice. So readers never trust others point of view. Trust your own instinct. Everyone had their own taste on games. What's yours???

Short of the long:
- If you can get it for 80% off, you will be getting full value from the gameplay.
- Plays best with a local co-op buddy.
- Short; less than 6 hours of gameplay.
- B-movie bad & hilarious for that.

5/10

So for starters, the male protagonist jaunts around like he has the gross motor skills of a four year old. The female protagonist gives a voice over with as much passion as the recorded voice that plays after the dial tone ends. Much of the other characters have similar uninspired voice overs.

It does have decent combat, it is a button masher with a few power attacks that have cooldowns. The gear progression is nothing special, most of the purchases you could make from stores should be avoided because you will be finding the full sets in the treasure chests scattered through the next area. The rpg elements seem unnecessary as most of the important power ups are automatically awarded and the skill point distibution makes minimal difference on gameplay; the fake enemy difficulty is neutralized by adding a point to make your attacks deal more damage. This leaves a rather flat experience that could have been achieved by keeping the starting gear and starting enemy hit points and damage.

I can only recommend this if you can get it on sale for 80% off or so, and have someone to play the game with you. Was not terrible, was not great, just average and a little unpolished. If there was a neutral button, I would have clicked it instead.

I just finished the game in under three and a half hour and had a great time playing.
Things that i experienced
- The voice acting could have been better, they all sound like robots when they speak.
- The gameplay and graphics was good.
- The game could have been better if the developers would have put more time into it.
- The story was a little bit hard to follow since it started to hop a little in the middle of it.
- If you like hack and slash you should try this game out.


Oh and one more thing...
If the game lags like ♥♥♥♥ when you start it for the first time try to update graphics drivers and windows updates. That worked for me atleast.
