게임에 대해

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.

The game is awesome and much more if you play it with a friend.

The only bad thing I could say about it is that the server host to play online is not very stable. I guess some days you can play with your friends, other times not...

This game is very good for what it is, and that is a budget game, the characters are diverse with their own skill trees, not a bad story, the action is satisfying for swords and boards junkies or swap characters and use daggers.

Graphics are well useable, you will do a bit of fighting, and tower defence then some bosses, so there is a nice mixture to break up the gameplay.

You can play as a female or male so there’s another choice in game play.

Get it on sale, and it’s a nice little game for your library.

http://steamcommunity.com/app/57680/discussions/0/522730700845568888/ - How to setup a controller

The written review is too long to fit here, so for more thoughts on the game, check my video review

For hundreds of years people are trying to find the Holy Grail – it's a cup, dish, plate or stone. Probably depends where you read about it. It's thought to have divine powers like eternal youth. Only handful of people manage to get their hands on it but they always lost it. One such a person is Indiana Jones. The other is the main characters here Celian d'Arestide. It's not a spoiler. Right in the beginnig the narrator is saying it. This is the First Templar - highly underrated, that in my opinion came in the wrong time. The problems the game have are probably related due the fact it's port and not a great one. And also some weird decisions.

The game is released in 2011 and I think even for the time it wasn't that good looking. It have a lot of video option and it runs fine on Windows 7 with 60 fps, but no matter how high you put all settings, it won't impressed you. Characters and textures looks plastic. If I didn't know the released date, i'd probably say it came out around 2005. Graphics are not bad, just okay.

You play (mainly) Celian d'Arestide, a knight templar who devoted his life in searching of the Holy Grail. With him is his brother in arms Roland, another templar. One minor spoiler ahead. After about an hour into the game, Roland is replaced with Marie d'Ibelin and with her they travel the world in search for the Grail. Parallel to your quest, you will save a lot of people, even help a city to fight off an attack. Part of the game takes place in time of persecution of the Templars The story is okay. It have few twists, but it's not the best story ever written in a video game, but it's enjoyble. It connects the dots.

What is more enjoyble is the combat. You can play with mouse and keyboard or controller. The game doesn't support generic controller, but I used one and to see how I done it, see the link I provided. If you played Batman Arkham series, you will feel almost like home. The game have similar rhytmic combat, but it have few twist that I like. Make no mistake Batman Arkham series combat is more fluid. The production values are a lot higher. The small difference here is blocking and counterattack. When enemy is about to make a move, icon above his head appear. Then if you don't want to dodge-roll, you have to face him to do counter or block. You can't just spam the buttons and hope to do what is supose to do, when your back is against the enemy. For perfect block and counterattack you have to press the corresponding button at the right time. I like that, because it offers more tension in the combat, especially when you are surrounded. At first is counterintuitive, but I got used to it fast.

The gameplay is great .You have only one basic combo in the beginnig, but you can buy new ones from the skill menu. In game they are called Special attacks. All are important. They are not many. This is not a spectacle fighter. After each battle you will be rewarded with xp points. With them you can upgrade existing combos or buy new. Special attacks are really important, because enemies tend to block your regular moves and with them you can brake their defense. Of course they are not only for that. The combat in the game is satisfying and almost perfect. I think it needs little more audio and visual feedback to feel more meaty. There is one perticular thing I like in the combat – the finishing moves. When a single enemy is left there is a chance to trigger one. They are nice little touch and I never got tired of seeing them

Other things you can buy from the skill menu is additional Health and Zeal orbs and they way you restore them. Health orbs are basically another health bar. More you have, longer you'll live. Life is restore by eating or drinking water. They fill even your Health orbs.

Special attacks and other moves require Zeal orbs. They are replenish by fighting, but with upgrades you do it even by killing enemies. As I said blocking is essential for surviving, because there is upgrade for getting Zeal orbs by blocking at the right time and therefore you can make Special attacks and so on. It's full circle.

The game can be played in split screen or online. I didn't try them, but I can safely say, your AI parter is quite capable of dealing with enemies. This is such a suprise. He or she have their skill menu and you have to buy for them upgrades. To my hugh suprise the AI uses Special attacks and even replenish his life! First I thought, that they will never use any of the moves I buy for them, but they do and this help a lot. You also have few basic commands for your teammate. I've never ever seen before better AI partner. Well, you will do most of the killing and of course the AI will do stupid things, it's not perfect, but still I stay behind my words.

A small part of the gameplay is stealth. With one or two exeptions, it's not forced, but it's useful dealing with multiple enemies. It's kinda cluncky, because it just duck or hide behind a cover and wait for opportunity to snap a neck. Even when you are out in the open, the enemy won't notice you as long you crouch an stay out of sight. The focus of the game is action not stealth, but it's still this part could be better. Most of the levels are not design with stealth in mind.

Level design is okay. You will visit a giant mansion, an oasis in a desert, the Middle East, Asia, dungeons filled with traps, castles, abbey, villige and so on. They are all nice, but it's too bad you can't explore more of them. I really love the places full of traps. It feels like i'm Indiana Jones. Levels are linear, but exploration is rewarded. There are hidden chest with parts for new clothes or weapons, xp or buffs and other stuff to find. Clothes and weapons don't offer any additional bonuses, so it's not require to equip them. They are just cosmetics.

Enemies you encounter are more or less the same with few exeptions. Different types of soldiers, bandits with swords, axes, spears and so on. In one level you will encounter hashashins, that are using daggers and jump a lot. In other places you will fight a tall ogre-looking creatures, but the main character said that they are humans. This is not fantasy game. As a setting is more realistic. Enemy AI won't surprise you if you played similar game to Batman Arkham series. They surround you and waiting to beat them, and from time to time they make regular or special attack. All the bosses here are fun. They make tons of damage and if you are not using all acquired skills and the shield, you will die easily.

Sound design is okay at best. Voice acting is passable. Most main characters voices are decent, but side characters and NPC's are bad. It's not awful as a whole, but it could be better. Celian have a gruff voice of course.

Effects are also okay. As a mention in the beginning the game could use better audio feedback, when you slice enemy. There is one really weird thing here. Sometimes when enemy dies wilhelm scream can be heard. Why? I don't see the point. It tooks me out of immersion, especially when I killed the final boss. It's out of place.

Music is not really memorable. Most places have different theme, but a lot of times when fight arose, you will here the same track over and over again.

번들에 포함되어 있어 심심한 마음에 플레이를 시작했는데 의외로 괜찮다. TPS이고 핵앤슬래시가 아닌 액션 RPG이다. 게임 이름에서 쓰인 Templar는 '템플 기사단원'이라는 뜻으로, 중세 십자군 전 당시의 기사 수도회의 소속원을 의미한다. 그러다 보니 배경도 중동 지방을 주로 하고 있고 적들 역시 사라센을 비롯한 동방의 유닛들이다. 왠지 주인공의 차림새나 전투 방식, 배경 등을 보면 Assassin's Creed 시리즈와 비슷한 느낌이 든다.

2인 파티로 움직이는데 AI는 그럭 저럭 못 봐줄 정도는 아니다. 함께 다니는 파티원은 직업이 다르기 때문에 원하는 전투 타입의 파티원으로 플레이할 수 있고 둘을 각각 전환하여 조종하며 퍼즐을 풀기도 한다. 스킬 분배도 각 캐릭터 마다 다르게 할 수 있다.

일자형 진행 방식을 택하고 있고 왠만한 아이템은 길에서 크게 벗어나지 않아도 획득할 수 있다. 어렵게 꼬여있어서 찾기 힘든 방식이 아니라 나침반에도 표시가 되어서 획득에 수월하다. 부가 미션 역시도 나침반으로 표시가 되기 때문에 찾기 어렵지 않다. 대개 게임을 진행하는 데에 있어 '나침반'의 4색 표지가 크게 유용하다.

전투는 다수의 적을 상대하다보니 연속 공격을 주로 하게 되며 쓸 수 있는 스킬 자체도 '강타'라든지 '방패 휘두르기' 등 '현실성'에서 벗어나지 않는 범주 내에 있다. 일반 공격을 하며 '열성'을 쌓고 그것을 소모해 스킬을 쓰는 식이다. 대개 RPG 게임에서 보여지는 화려한 기술을 선호하는 사람들이라면 실망할 수도 있겠지만 나 같은 경우는 워낙에 이 편을 좋아하기 때문에 괜찮게 느껴진다.

전체적으로 볼 때 할 만하고 재미있는 게임이다. 일단 번들을 통해 획득하게 되어서 그런지 별 큰 기대 않고 '뭐 하다 재미없으면 꺼야지' 하는 생각으로 시작을 했는데, 의외로 소소하게 재미있다. 일종의 전략을 잡은 것 같은데 괜히 이것 저것 달성하는 데에 어려움이 있으면 짜증만 나고 귀찮고 그렇게 되면 아예 게임을 하지 않게 될 우려가 있기 때문에 적당 적당히 쟁취할 수 있게 해놓았다. 메이저 게임이라면 좀 빡세도 전체적인 퀄리티가 맞물려 돌아가기 때문에 일종의 '밀당'이 되는데에 반해, 인디 게임의 경우 그럴 역량이 부족할 가능성이 많기 때문에 그 점을 스스로 잘 알고 구성이 된 모습이다. 각종 도전 과제도 큰 어려움 없이 획득이 가능하고 혹시 부가 미션을 놓친 챕터가 있다면 챕터 별로 새로 시작도 할 수 있게끔 해놓았다. 여러 면면을 볼 때 평작 혹은 평작 이상 정도는 되어 보인다.

한 가지 조금 성가셨던 점은 Kalypso 계정을 만들어 CD 키를 등록 후 플레이를 진행해야 했던 것이다.
