Last Knight: Rogue Rider Edition, is one of the those amazing games that steam fails to promote fairly.
( notes , I got this game on April while it was on early access and i have a few hours on game-play but offline so it was not recorded, and I stopped updating it but since I saw it fully released now I updated and started playing again )
This game is really something , I liked it ever since I played it the first time although there were some glitches and Serious Framedrops at the beginning which stopped me from playing this game at first , but they are all fixed now and i'm enjoying this game a lot which is why I am making this review
To hit the point early, Whats not to like ? This game has beautiful artwork style, outstanding graphics, interactive story, great gameplay, Unlockables , Customizations, Secrets, Achievements , Trading cards, Stats , Controller supports and it also works beautifully on a keyboard and mouse so its got everything.
It is basically a running game, With Medieval touch, You're a knight on a horse the character keeps running, you dodge stuff jump And use your spear to thrust and the game gets better and better the more you play.
It supports huge screens with the resolution options, and while there it also has full graphics settings and the game is not that demanding with requirements I have a very normal laptop with a small Nvidia gpu and running this perfectly.
The game has some modes and stuff that makes it more entertaining, Such as Powerups to improve your strength by purchasing various items, unlocking quests for different characters throughout Endless mode ( which is really fun and hard ), More unlockables as you play through the game.
The game has (Mutators) which are more unlockables you unlock by getting (chivalry) points , they alter how the game is , For an example, one of them can turn this game into a first person view, and many more that changes the world and everything ( wont spoil it any further ) but they are brilliant
There also a "New world" Mode that is a randomly generated world you choose your path as you go on it has powerups and secrets and hats ! ( for customizing character )
And it is considered a Rogue-like , it spends a few seconds generating the new world ( a map for you to travel on ) and if you die its game over in this mode and you have to generate a new one, it is very different from the base game, you have a health Bar and find food to regain Hp, and after ever level you open up an inventory to upgrade your state and abilities.
And 4 other Fun modes to waste hours and hours on : )
Just by looking at those store Screenshots you can tell that this game is fun, Thats exactly the type of graphics I like in a video game, The water reflection, the trees the lights are so addictive and fun and the Animations with it are truly outstanding.
The game's soundtracks are really great, it brings out the medieval sense to this game along with this artwork.
I especially like the challenges in this game, it gets harder by the minute, faster and requires precision and more crazy stuff popping out and dragons ! you can't have a game with knights in it without dragons I always say !
The character designs are brilliant I love how they add this "Comedy" Touch to the game while maintaining its realistic forum and story.
- Pros :
1 - Wonderful Graphics, Animations, Artwork, Character designs, Style, Soundtrack
2 - Great addictive entertaining game-play, and a long story.
3 - The game takes a while to finish and with the challenges and modes it could be at least 20 hours to begin with and i'm looking at more hours : )
4 - Unlockables, Mutators that alters the game, Unlocking new characters , Customizing your own character and horse, Purchasing PowerUps, Endless mode for laughs and giggles ( and more secrets ) brings out more hours
5 - VERY fair store price ! I mean for this game you'd expect it to AT LEAST hit 14,99$ but this ? This is a great deal!
1 - I feel the game is still not 100% optimized it COULD be that my laptop is just old , because when I minisize the game and bring it back up it freezes for a few seconds and takes time to start sometimes, Not sure if this should be a con because its the game or not a con because my laptop is getting old
This game is a must have for all you out there that enjoys those Runner games where you keep dodging stuff because this should be one of the tops, Everything about this game I just love so much I dare to say that you NEED to buy this game if you liked how it looks in the store
