It's a decent hack and slash game with medium rpg elements.
The story is somewhat interesting but marred by poor voice acting.
The graphics are servicable for the time period released.
Pefromance for me was very good, frame rate stayed pegged against my refresh rate cap I have set at 144
It definitly looks like it would be more fun played with a second person vs switching,but limiting to local co op severly restricts that availbilty
Controls are tight and what'd you'd expect from hack and slash.
Most of the level up increases are just stat gains to various atributes

I'd say 7/10 worth a look if you are wanting a new hack and slash game. Reccomend you pick it up on sale though as the current retail is a bit high for a 3 year old game.

It's not that bad, it has co-op and controller support. Although the graphics are a bit old now, voiceover is not good, and controls a little weird.

If you buy this game even at 2 dollars you are getting ripped off. Everything about this game is terrible. I tried to play it, and I wanted to at least finish the game before uninstalling, but I can't stand to look at this game anymore. There are good vampire games out there. This is not one of them. Look elsewhere if you want to have fun.

There isn’t much I can tell you about Blood Knights; it looks like it could be good for some couch co-op action but unfortunately the game refuses to run or runs very poorly with constant hiccups and horrible slowdowns. This can be solved by updating your OS or so the devs claim but that didn’t help my issue at all. Buy at your own risk.

Español:
No puedo hablar mucho del juego ya que no puedo hacer que corra correctamente en mi máquina. Parece ser un juego entretenido en cooperativo pero se rehúsa completamente a funcionar de forma adecuada, se congela, va lento, en fin, es todo un dolor de cabeza. Estos problemas se solucionan actualizando el sistema operativo pero en mi caso no es algo que me pueda permitir. Cómpralo bajo tu propio riesgo.

This'll be quick:

- Bad writing, voice acting and a stupid story with inconsistencies since the first minute (how the heck did the healer get to the chamber first, if you had to fight through vampires?)
- Linear level design
- Banal gameplay
- Technical problems: Stuttering like hell
- Cannot rebind keys

Not recommended.

No joke, might be the worst game ever made. I don't even know how this ended up in my library, probably a bundle, but I read the reviews before and thought "No way this is as bad as everyone says." Got 10 minutes in and immediately regretted my decision to install and play.

Bad voice acting, mechanical looking animations, no camera control, aiming sucks, and I got dumped into the middle of a story that I have no real reason to care about. Oh, and the timer is broken on it too. I've unfortunately played it for longer than Steam thinks I have.

The Gameplay was very good. The storyline was also very good. When considering buying this game, I was looking for something casual to play that was storyline heavy and had lots of cutscenes. I didn't want all the hassle and tasks that concerns games like the elder scrolls, dragon age and whatnot, you know where you gotta constantly recycle your inventory and carefully choose your skills and build and all the rest of it. This was perfect for that. The only significant downside was that it was too short. But still very good, clocked it in 6 or 7 hours I think. It doesn't have a new game plus, which is unfortunate. The story and the dialogue were very good it should be noted. I don't want to spoil it but there was a convorsation with a succubus and a summuned demon that was particularly amusing

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.

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.

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.

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
