Om spillet

The First Templar follows the story of two main characters – a French Templar, and his companion, a noble lady who has been proclaimed a heretic. Taking control over these two unlikely allies, the player must uncover the mysteries behind the Templar Order, play a role in a grand conspiracy, and discover the secret of the Holy Grail. The heroes face powerful opponents at every turn, including Sacracen, King Philip the IV of France and the Inquisition.

The First Templar features both single player and co-op modes. When playing solo, the player can switch between the two characters, leaving the control of the second hero to the game’s AI. At any moment a second player can join in and take control of the AI-controlled hero.

Surprisingly addicting game. Too bad it's overlooked.

The graphics are dated, really dated, and you can tell that right away. But somehow, the game itself does not appear to be ugly - the game doesn't try to be anything else but a good and easy linear adventure. But in general, the graphics are STATIC. As in, there's no wind, trees are frozen in time and space, no physics, no discernible effects on the environment by your actions.

The story is extremely easy to follow though. No need to memorize names, locations and tons of redundant quests. And there's an abundant amount of history to enjoy. I'm not sure how much of it is concrete though.

There is a certain degree of suspense in some levels and sequences and there is the ability to do some stealth killing.

You can play as one of the two Templar brothers, and you can switch in between the two any time you want, eventually, another character joins in.
You can also gain experience and exchange it for some combo moves, more health, etc.
You also get to collect some items that enable you to get one or another armor and weaponry.

Let's not forget about the co-op though. The bad thing is that I'm not sure how much re-playability this game has. So I would rather see this game as a lone experience and have other games that scream co-op to have co-op (Jericho for instance). Your AI co-op partner is okaish for the most part, and your stealth moves are apt to copying your moves, but sometimes your partner with end up on the ground which is when you have to revive him or her.

Also, it's rare in games when the two protagonists tend to agree with each other most if not all the time. The two characters you play as agree with each other constantly, unlike in Bulletstorm, Enslaved, etc. So even though there's enough scripted dialogue between the two characters, I would probably enjoy to listen to some arguments about the inquisition, the church, the main quest and what not.

The game is also easy, really easy, but eventually, it does require you to pull off some combos and some well-times blocks and counter-attacks to advance further.

The voice acting is pretty poor though.

The game is pretty long. There are puzzles to solve and dungeons to crawl through. There are plenty of twists and turns along the way.

The co-op is outstanding. My best friend and I spent 3 days playing the game. A few months later, we started playing the game from the scratch.

In any case, I would recommend this game to anyone who wants to relax, who likes the hack'n'slash with tactical approach and anyone who wants enjoy a nice story.

Plus, you get to support a small company that made the game in the first place.

In my opinion one of the most underrated games ever. It is a very solid ARPG in a setting without elves and orcs !!!
Graphics are not really good , but never ugly and very atmospheric. Sound and music is very good and voices are great.
You will play with three different chars which can be changed during missions, which can be a lot fun .

The story is really good, especially if you like stories about Crusader, Stonemasons and the holy grail !!
I really enjoyed the feeling to be on a “little crusade” 

The game design is straight forward as in most action based RPG. You have to do a mainquest and lots of bonus quests.
Rewarded XP can be used to get new skills, upgrade skills, get more HP …..

Controlling with a XBOX Controller is solid and works good, but the game never shows Controller Button, only Keyboard shortcuts..

8 / 10

The First Templar is a respectable co-op action game set during the First Crusade. The enjoyable combat and decent story help to overcome the game's pedestrian production values, and make it worth checking out.

In The First Templar you and a partner (controlled either by another player or pretty good AI) are on a quest for the Holy Grail. While your goals are noble other characters may not be as trustworthy as they seem, and there are a few plot twists and surprise revelations along the way.

Much of your time in The First Templar will be spent in combat and the fighting system is good; there's a nice rhythm to it, and a wide variety of moves can be unlocked, which keeps things from getting stale.

When you're not fighting, you're figuring out puzzles, negotiating deadly traps, and searching for collectibles. There are even a few stealth sequences in The First Templar, and they're pulled off decently enough. Thankfully the AI of your partner is quite good, and they can easily negotiate the levels and handle themselves in combat without you having to babysit them.

The Special Edition of The First Templar on Steam contains a bonus mission that takes place after the events of the main game. This mission takes about 90 minutes to complete, and it has a few new Steam achievements to go along with it. All told it will take about 12 - 14 hours to complete the game, depending on how thorough you are when it comes to looking for hidden areas and collectibles.

The First Templar is underrated.

I really liked this game, although I really don't know why. Bad graphics, voice acting, story and animations. The combat is actually pretty fun so that's not bad. Pick it up on sale and give it a try, you might like it.

the main plot of this game is about a templar that tried to solve conspiracy about the recent violent event that involve templar themself and about a most sacred treasure of all time, the Holy Grail.

the gameplay of this game just like two worlds 2, not perfect , got many rough edges, really linear path , but satisfying combat system and finishing move ,not really that repetitive ,there are some variatif here and there ,not many ,but good enough to bring fresh air in the gameplay.

there's puzzle here and there, the puzzle sometimes can be chanllenging but not really hard.

for graphics indeed for the year this game release the graphics ok but not really impressive, the sounds effect quite good and the voice actor sometimes can be really sloppy but most of the time its ok

the storyline quite weak, but not bad, theres certainly some exciting and twist event at the main storyline

overall i give this 7.5 ,if you love medieval rpg/adventure type game ,this one worth it ,and with quite nice storyline about conspiracy and such ,it's give additional points to this game.
