    Blood Knights is too easy to ever become actively irritating, but its deficit of danger makes it too darn dull to hold even a devoted horror nut’s attention for long. Perhaps it’s a blessing, then, that the whole ho-hum campaign clocks in at just four hours.

    Blood Knights is one of those games you’ll see one day for a ten dollar discount and say “Yeah, I’ll try it out.” And when you do, you may gather a bit of enjoyment out of it, but for fifteen bucks, this mediocre experience may be better off with the vampires for now.

    Blood Knights is like a bad B-movie. However, this game belongs in the category of really bad B-movies. There are a lot of hack ‘n’ slash games which are a lot better than Blood Knights. A disgrace for the genre.

    Blood Knights is representative of the terrible trend in game design where its devs have taken what might have been a mediocre-but-serviceable brawler and packed it full of systems that do nothing for the player but push them further away from the action.

    Blood Knights holds as much annoyance as satisfaction. [Christmas 2013, p.103]

    It’s an awkward mix of Diablo and Soul Reaver that nobody asked for. Something to play if you’ve got a few hours and an itch to bump up your Gamerscore.

    The hack&slay formula is simple. But Blood Knights doesn’t deliver. That this game and Venetica come from the same dev team is hard to believe.

    It’s hard to recommend Blood Knights when there are similar games that offer a slicker production and far greater variety.
