    Blood Knights is the kind of game that excels at being annoying rather than entertaining.

    There are plenty of good hack’n’slash games out there, many involving vampires, and this isn’t one of them.

    Unfortunately for Blood Knights, taking established systems and watering them down just leaves you with a diluted mix that tastes nothing like what it's trying to imitate.

    Yes, the game has its flaws. But if you like vampire games you will enjoy this one too. The characters are likable, the story is cool and theYes, the game has its flaws. But if you like vampire games you will enjoy this one too. The characters are likable, the story is cool and the music adds to the atmosphere. The controls take some getting used to, but in the end aren't bad. This game reminded me of Vampire Redemption and I'd like to see more. One thing I wasn't happy about is that the game only has co-op, not multiplayer, so you'll need an XBox controller if you want to play this on pc. Full Review »

    The first time /i played it, the controls are a bit awkward and the camera strange. But after playing several hours I understand the controls.The first time /i played it, the controls are a bit awkward and the camera strange. But after playing several hours I understand the controls.

    Automatic fixed Camera angles turning.
    The game creators chose for fixed camera angles to hide certain secrets a bit. As you walk past certain areas you might just see the secret items. Because of the automatic fixed angles, I can play without to keep turning the camera myself and can focus on the battle. In certain maps they could have changed the angles a bit, like in the city. Then you walk towards the player but the camera is still looking in the opposite way your game character is walking. Because of the camera choice, it plays more like an arcade game. Not to many controls and let you focus on the action.

    Aiming weapons
    I had to find out how to aim. By turning the mouse around the player, you aim. The game has some auto aim, that is handy for the enemies that are far away. Althought it does not always work well. The aiming angle and actual shooting direction is sometimes off by some degrees. But that is not very bad. It's ok, if you know it. The game does not require you to do head shots accurately. So that is fine.

    Weapon diversity
    The two weapon types are crossbows and swords. The player can control the girl or the man. You can swap character in the middle of the fight. Some areas require arrows to solve the puzzles. Other areas require swordfight to overcome the hordes of enemies. You need to use both characters.

    Character abilities
    They both have special abilities like fire arrow, suck blood to heal, jump and crash down attack (male) and hits all enemies around, etc

    Fights
    They require some tactics, but is more arcade.

    Armour and weapons loot
    Both characters will find items from chests (some hidden). The items will change the apearance of the female or male character. Flaming/ electricity swords and bows.

    Bug found that is not so nice.
    If you have multiple monitor, it's possible that it will minimize the game, because you pressed the mouse outside the game window.

    Overall:
    It's enjoying t play. And has replay value. It has 3 endings: Pro vampire, neutral and pro human.

    Decently Enjoyable
    Blood Knights is a top down action rpg where you play as vampires Jeremy and Alysa after an artifact to prevent cataclysms
    You can play this game with local co-op or switch between the 2 characters at any time
    Jeremy is more of the hack and slasher, able to do a whirlwind attack, and heavy attacks, while Alysa is more about ranged weapons.. She carries a cross bow and can throw bombs and shoot fire arrows…
    This game wasn’t received well when it came out…
    And im not really sure why
    This 5 an a half hour journey to the credits is in no way good...
    But it’s enjoyable...
    I had fun
    the combat and level design here is fairly simple...
    You run around, activate switches when you have to
    collects loot to boost your stats
    and slay all the fools that cross your path...
    You’re even eventually able to suck the blood out of them to regain some of your health…
    which you’ll need to do a lot as Jeremy and Alysa annoyingly share a health bar…
    The only point of having 2 characters to switch back and forth from is to shoot switches Jeremy can’t reach..
    And if you’re more of an Alysa person... then theses no point in having Jeremy around at all...
    They do level up together though, which allows you to buff one of your special attacks, and there are blood coins around to collect that once you get 5 you can increase a base stat like health or power..
    Level design is pretty straight forwards and feels varied enough...
    I never felt bored of the game or like ive seen it all before…
    Sure its in no way challenging
    The rpg elements are extremely simple
    The bosses are kinda lame
    the story and characters are definitely lame
    but I had fun…
    This is a very mindless done in one sitting hack and slash kind of game
    This game again is in no way definitively good, but I still feel it’s
    under rated and if you’re watching this review the same month im posting it,
    it’s free for the ps3 so you have nothing to lose in trying it out
    I give Blood Knights
    a 6.5/10
