    Really enjoyed this game. The story is interesting, combat is fluid and fun, graphics look great, the game is long and the drop-in co-op works really well. On the downside the anims are poor, particularly in cutscenes, collision detection isn't good and the game has an odd dated feel to it. Overall it's a strong purchase imho, particularly as you can now get it fairly cheap. I really hopeReally enjoyed this game.

    I went into The First Templar not expecting much and yet i was surprised to find that hours later i was still playing and enjoying it. Yes the graphics arent up to par and the voice acting is bit shoddy but i found the story engaging and i kept going back for just one more level. I believe that this is another game like Deadly Premonition where you'll either like it for its quirky charmI went into The First Templar not expecting much and yet i was surprised to find that hours later i was still playing and enjoying it.

I believe that this is another game like Deadly Premonition where you'll either like it for its quirky charm or hate it because of its faults. I am one of he former. So i'd say possibly rent it and you may be pleasantly surprised. Collapse

    Consistently let down by poor design decisions and outdated play mechanics.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]
