    Knights of Valour manages to entertain for free, even if it's influenced by the typical free-to-play mechanics.

    As a free to play game, Knights of Valour isn't totally bad. Unfortunately extra characters cost way too much and the gameplay becomes really repetitive. The game came to Europe three years later than the asian version and it suffers from dated graphics and lack of content.

    Knights of Valour is good for one thing and pretty much one thing only, good old fashioned arcade style gameplay with an internet connection.Knights of Valour is good for one thing and pretty much one thing only, good old fashioned arcade style gameplay with an internet connection. The game is fun, there's more depth than most old school cabinets have and it allows for single and multiplayer. Along with an RPG upgrade system there's potentially dozens of hours of entertainment to be had, and it costs nothing upfront.

    The only place it will start costing money is in characters, which I can see being a massive draw back. The freemium currency you get for daily missions and "achievements" (mostly just playing the game. I got the first dozen within a few hours) is sadly pathetic. A paramount concept with free to play games is that the first few hours indicates the grind for the rest of the game. If the first hour gets you enough currency to buy something, odds are you'll have enough to buy something else by the end of the day, then in a couple days, then a week, two weeks, a month, on and on about like that. In two hours of this game I still need 440 more currency to buy the CHEAPEST character on the roster. Factor in that paying almost 60 USD would get you 2000 currency (the two most expensive characters cost 900 EACH) and it's clear how they want to get their money from you.

    The most obnoxious thing about the game is that it occasionally pulls up a "recommended" thing to buy from the Playstation Store, in other words it pulls up a screen asking you to spend real money. It only happened once, but it kind of pissed me off. I understand they want money, but if I'm going to spend it I'm going to do it on my own, not because I've been prompted to recommended something.

    Knights of Valour is a little old, the "story" is nothing new or exciting, but the gameplay is fun, fast paced, and well worth a try considering the game is completely free. Prices could use adjusting, or perhaps rewards increased, but if it's possible to avoid paying money by simply grinding as it seems to be then this is one of the better free to play games on the market.

    Dated graphics, terrible music, characters being to expensive and the game being completely repetitive. For the people who do like it thoughDated graphics, terrible music, characters being to expensive and the game being completely repetitive. For the people who do like it though there is a lot of content. You can complete the game completely free so you lose nothing for trying it. The main problem though is the game is simply not fun.
