A fast, fun mashup of Diablo and Vampire The Masquerade Redemption.

The story elements feel a bit tacked-on, and the acting is... well... think Days Of Our Lives in Vampireland; VERY ham-handed. I think we could get a better dialogue from a kindergarten stage show...

But really, if you're here for the plot elements, then you're doing it wrong; this game is pretty much all about the carnage and button-mashing.

I got what I paid for, so I'm giving the game a 6.0/10

Nothing special, but not especially bad either.
The plot is pretty basic, although you are given almost no context for what is going on (it almost feels like you missed an opening cutscene or something).
Writting and voice acting ranges from "ok" to AWEFUL.
Gameplay is fairly solid, but I should say that I played on a controller, and I think some of the platforming areas would be pretty nightmarish if playing with a mouse and keyboard.

Overall I would say it is worth buying, if you can get it cheap and are looking to kill 4-5 hours; just don't expect anything spectacular.

Got this game as a simple hack n slash for two people. Go in expecting that and you'll be pleasantly surprised; go in expecting amazement you'll be disappointed. But for ten bucks, a solid little co-op game. Can't upvote local co-op enough, and the gameplay is pretty good and satisfies that hack n slash loot grabber urge.

Umm just today I finished the game and now I can say for the money that I spent it's worth it. I got it barely for $0.99 so I got what I paid for. It's a pretty generic hack'n'slash action rpg with some unique elements added to it. There were a couple of things that I didn't like for example 1)It was very linear and short
2)Voice overs felt as if they were recorded in a very low budget studio or maybe at someone's home.(lol)
and one annoying bug which prevented me from progressing further.

I really admired the way they created Jeremy's character. Especially his interaction with his better half was interesting and funny to watch.

Do I recommend this game? Yes get it if you see it on sale.

This game was a lot of fun.

I really enjoyed the fluid combat, the vampiric powers, and some of the character designs. There's a very basic save the world plot which drives you forward, but it's not all that interesting. It does what it needs to do (serve as a reason to go from area to area) and no more.

There's a nice array of enemies which require different tactics to defeat, and some fun bosses.

In all honesty, the only thing I didn't enjoy were the short platforming sections - simply because it was so easy to miss and fall to your death. Luckily, checkpoints can be found frequently, and you can revist them to update your save; as well as visit the trader.

I played this with an Xbox 360 controller and it worked fine. No idea what it's like with a mouse and keyboard. Don't want to think about it.

One strange thing which kept happening to me, was things looked like they were stuttering or lagging, but weren't. It's really weird and difficult to explain. It didn't affect gameplay in any way, it just looked like character animations were a bit stuttery - it could mainly be seen during cutscenes. However, like I said, it never influenced gameplay in the slightest; button input and commands were fluid and everything was responsive.

A shame the game wasn't more fleshed out.

I recommend it to people who enjoy loot driven rpgs, similar to Diablo, but who want to play as a blood drinking vampire.

If this was set in Nosgoth I could see this as a cheaply made cashgrab tie-in to the original Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain - as it is this is just a cheap hack and slash action/arcade game with vampires in it.

Nothing is really that hard, and the programming is basic, so there is a lot of exploits to use, if it gets too hard at times - and when you die, reloading is fast.

The camera is not the best in the world, the voices sound bored, and it is easiest to play as a shooter, but while some thinks that the action is repetitive, I found that it worked fine, considering the short game length

Honestly if you are looking for a RPG, look somewhere else - if you are looking for gameplay worth 5+ bucks - again look somewhere else; but if it is a rainy sunday, this game is on sale (I bought it for 2.50 euro) and you just want something easy and shallow to help you lose part of a day, then this game is alright.

I had a blast playing this coop on the couch, my girlfriend enjoied it too. It's bad but good. Mechanics are wonky but the gameplay is fun. There's some funny and bad voice acting, but it's not all that bad. We were both really sad it ended so shortly. It's probably only about 6 hrs tops of gameplay, but it's actually a solid hack and slash/twin stick shooter/rpg. Also, a solid coop game! There was plenty of laughable things, which I think the creators were aware of that, but it had some pretty cool artwork and decent music. Ancient vampire mech suits... pretty ♥♥♥♥ing cool. It was fun leveling up, actually really well designed rpg system that wasn't so overbearing for a couch coop game. Just all around fun game to sit and play coop.

I´m really liking it, a lot, its very dynamic and you can do a lot of beautiful moves with limited actions. The story its simple, but I find it very atractive. less than two dollar for it its a steal. If you like vampires and gothic environments, and you like very continous action games, you will enjoy it.

I love vampire games and I will forgive them many things.

However no matter how I try and justify this game to myself the truth is I wasted the money I spent on it and the time I spent playing it.

The voice acting is terrible, the combat is boring, pretty much none of the cool vampire abilities you would expect are in this.
The story is just painful, seriously painful.

But ofcourse this isn't the worst part of it.

It is fair to say that pretty much none of the monsters will kill you, if nothing else the AI is too dumb for that.

What will kill you and kill you alot is the most brain dead camera perspective.
Expect to be killed by off screen boses, have all the directions mid platformer jump, run off a cliff due to sudden perspective change.

Seriously if you want a Vampire game that is platforming and is an action rpg just go and find an old version of legacy of kain.
Learn from my mistakes and dont waste your time or money on this painful experience.

Well really did think this was going to be my sort of game and oh boy was i wrong.
I have actually finished this game and overall found it to be a very frustrating experience,for starters the graphics are ok,the sounds ok,the voice actings ok and thats where it stops being ok.
Most of the time when you get in fights including the BOSS battles (so called boss battles) you just mash buttons and hope for the best and its this way with most other things to,jump from one platform to another and it can sometimes be pot luck if you land on the platform of fall to your death.
This game could have had real potential to be something other than what it is MEDIOCRE and thats really all one can say about the whole of my time with this game,and thats a sad thing-it will appeal to someone (all games do) and we dont all like the same sort of games,but i dont think that this game will really have a wide fan base and as the ending drew near i was like thank god its over and then "HURRAY" the typical ending for the sequel that hopefully will never see the light of day.

Man i preorder this one on greenmangaming for a decent price, just over $10 which I thought would be safe since I know people who like this dev. Never gotten into the one other game of theirs i tried. And man this was worse. Also now its on sale 2 weeks after release anumber of places for $6 from $15. wow. i can handle bad acting, voice stuff, but man the the levels and gameplay are jsut so unispired. its like a bad dragon age 2 which should speak for itself.

At first, you see the vampire chick with the classic "high level armor" and you're like "Hey, let's give this a shot".

Stay strong, don't do it. There's better eye candy for less money on the Internet. The game feels like it was made in a weekend. It feels very guided, even for a hack and slash, Devil May Cry wanna-be.

While I appreciate the time it must have taken to make the game, it needs about another year of developing and overall reduction in the amount of things that say "This is the first real game I created". If we were in 2003, the gameplay mechanics would have been right up there with the best of them, but the very few things that make the game stand out are very gimmicky and not maturely integrated into the game. In almost a Frankenstein sense, they took three ideas that CAN work well together and mashed them all together into a game that is just passable.

The depth of the game reminds me of the first couple LEGO Star Wars games - very superficial. The attacks don't feel powerful, either, which is a big pet peeve of mine. Games like Devil May Cry 4 and DmC, when you hit an enemy, they appear to be jarred by your attack. In this game I just didn't get that feeling of power in my attacks.

As with any indie game, I really root for the developers and can overlook small issues, but I didn't really have anything solid to grab onto with this game. I didn't really feel like I was doing anything for a purpose, it feels like the game starts about 30 minutes into the actual story and nothing really feels like it has a clear goal. The character acting is not great, and while the game looks good, just like the pretty girls in high school, there's very little going on under the hood of this game.

Blood Knights pretty good game...

Gameplay:
The gameplay is unusual, namely, during battle, you can switch characters. Only two of the hero, one of them have the skills to melee and one ranged and is very comfortable. Good pumping capacity, as well as the selection of equipment, which can be found or purchased.
BUT! Problems with the camera, the camera view is sometimes not comfortable for the game - it's one of game problems.

Price:
Game cost 14,99€, maybe would be price 9,99€. Better buy this game on sale.

Story:
Not bad story. Two people become vampires...

Graphic:
I don't know what to said about graphic. I think it's not bad for this game with her price.

LoL, I got to know about co-op in this game when finished. So #facepalm

P.S. Sorry for my English :3

I really enjoyed this game. It is right up my alley. If you're looking for a Game of the Year contender, this isn't it. But this is a simple, entertaining, fun little adventure that I would recommend to anyone looking for a little mindless fun.

Quick summary:
  • Fun, mindless hack 'n' slash. In terms of gameplay, it is similar to The Bard's Tale, which I also enjoyed.
  • Takes about three hours for a single playthrough, and fun enough to go back to play to unlock different endings.
  • Decent story for a video game, with branching story options, though generally quite linear.
  • Some minor character upgrades.
  • Simple loot system, where new items found are better than existing items, and it really only makes sense to save your money to buy the best weapons in the game towards the end.
  • Gamepad controls reasonably intuitive.
  • Graphics and voice acting are good enough.
  • Very stable. Not a single crash.

All in all, I would give it a 7/10. There is nothing in this game that is bad -- it's just not going to be on anyone's top 10 list ... except maybe mine.

If this were a film, it would not be an Oscar contender, but it would be one of those movies that you'll just sit there and watch and enjoy whenever you see it playing on the TV years later.
