  1. Undead Knights is not going to appeal to everyone. Its combat is unrefined and the hack n' slash mentality will get old for those who demand a bit more depth and strategy to their games. However, those just looking for a replayable and ridiculous portable action game won't go far wrong with Tecmo's latest offering. It's got buckets of blood, armies of loyal zombies and characters that feel like complete and utter badasses.

    If you're looking for a good zombie fix this Halloween, Undead Knights should be on the top of your list. The addictive zombie-commanding action, multiplayer options and blood-soaked presentation will make you want to join this legion.
  3. Building an army of rotting corpses is a blast, and it's especially satisfying to see your current tally of allies - represented by decaying zombie heads - grow along the bottom of the HUD. However, as much fun as it is to sic your pale-skinned psychos on a variety of low-level henchmen and screen-swallowing bosses, Undead Knights' flaws occasionally pull you from the fun.
  4. It's a lot of fun to be commanding corpses rather than running from them. [Mar 2010, p.88]
  5. If you have a love of zombies bordering on the unnatural this is a no-brainer. [Apr 2010, p.77]
  6. Undead Knights is a surprisingly playable little title. It’s innovations, such as making zombies allies rather than enemies and the things you can order them do make its gameplay refreshing enough to warrant a high amount of playtime.

    I'm not a fan of these kind of games. But this one has a good meaty gameplay. your screen is always full of enemies and that is fun!
