    Oddly, I was sent a rental copy of the game before it was officially released in the shops, and with no reviews in any magazines / online.. and the second you load the game you can see why no review copies were sent out to magazines...

    awful is the only word I can really use to describe the game, it has no flow, it's clunky, the graphics are awful, you only need to bash one button through
    out the game, the sound is terrible, sounds like it's mono.

    Terrible.

    Well there is two good things in this game, there is co-op and the game is long. So if you want to suffer with a friend, get this game! The game is really bad in general but some things stick out being extra bad, for example: the voice acting is so bad.. it sounds like every single word was recorded separately. And the ending... I can't find any words to describe it... lmao

    I can't fully explain how bad this game was, but I will try. The storyline is bland, the graphics belong on the gamecube, the combat is a joke, the gameplay cutscenes are N64 standards and it just falls flat. If you enjoy pressing x for about 8 hours then pick up this game, but this game doesn't deserve a mediocre rating. It deserves a rating. The only reason I didn't give this game a 0 out of 10 was because the main character was decent and his voice actor was well done, but besides that, I hate everything about this loathsome piece of filth.

    Consistently let down by poor design decisions and outdated play mechanics. [Issue#111, p.116]

    First Templar leaves me with mixed feelings. One the one hand it's a very fun and engaging game to make your way through with a friend, but on the other hand it has little problems here and there that mar the gameplay. It seems like it was sloppily put together and could have been better constructed all around in order to make the gameplay more fluid. It's a decent game to go through at least once and is definitely worth picking up. Not necessarily at full price, but it's certainly worth playing.

    Too cheap and nasty by half. They used to crusade against this kind of thing. [Aug 2011, p.91]
