About Knights Contract

In a time of swordsmen and magic, Knights Contract follows the twisted tale of Heinrich, an immortal executioner, and Gretchen, a resurrected witch. Once the victim of Heinrich's blade by the order of the game's antagonist, Dr. Faust, Gretchen now has him under her control as the two must work together to rid the land of the supernatural foes who are cursing its people with the black spell of death. Armed with a razor sharp scythe and explosive witchcraft, players will use these tools with spectacular effects in order to return civility to the land. As players succeed in their journey, they can deal tremendous damage to their on-comers or unleash a gruesome finisher by coordinating the efforts of Heinrich and Gretchen. However, players must also keep a close eye on Gretchen as her mortality is the key to the duo's survival as Heinrich can never be vanquished. It's time to let the combos fly and lay waste to the hordes of darkness with a liberal dose of medieval panache.

Summary

Knights Contract is essentially one, giant escort mission plagued by a myriad of gripes including horrendous AI. and repetitive combat. Despite its interesting concept, there is not enough on offer to salvage the game from the sheer magnitude of problems encountered throughout.

We like

  • The very basic story and concept
  • The creatures and bosses look interesting

We dislike

  • The broken AI that practically kills the game
  • The glitchy camera
  • Copious amounts of loading screens

Knights Contract fails. If you want to know why, then keep reading. While I could list the game’s vast array of problems in bullet point fashion, I’d rather not give you the impression that the game deserves a mini-dissertation. The fact is, people make bad games, and it’s not always personal faults that create problems in any given title. For Knights Contract however, I can’t help but wonder if someone...
