    Undead Knights is built on an interesting premise, but that idea isn't taken to the extremes like it should have been. The humor isn't played up enough, the controls can be problematic, it can get rather repetitive and the whole thing just isn't as polished as I would have liked to have seen.
  2. 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.
  3. Undead Knights' frustrating control moments and sometimes dull design elements don't completely outweigh its violent charm. The gruesome, dark premise is slick and the underlying gameplay is definitely enjoyable in short bursts.
