Portal Knights is the perfect opportunity if you're willing to get close to the universe of Minecraft & C., or if you're looking for something a little bit more complex than mere resource gathering and building. The RPG component is pretty thin, but deep enough to offer different approaches to the game. Thumbs up.
Finally Portal Knights is among us! So far the game is amazing with beautifully charming graphics. The control seems spot on with a lock-on and dodge system. I created a Ranger to start things off. This is the game I always wanted after playing Minecraft for a long time on the PS4. Minecraft with better graphics, combat system and RPG elements. The COOP works flawlessly as I have been playing COOP with my son. I highly recommend this game!
Portal Knights is an amazing take on the block builder genre, offering loads of content, not to mention a lot of free content with updates. The DLC is all very fairly priced, especially considering you can get as many of what you bought as you'd like. The game looks great, runs smooth, and has lots to come back for. The holiday events are also a lot of fun. The only reason I can't give it a perfect score is due to difficulty curve on the optional Hard Mode Bosses and High Rifts, though as I stated these are optional but enough to make even some of the most hardened completionists give up. All in all, though, 100% worth the buy.
Portal Knights is a "Minecraft Like" that goes far beyond mere clone and adds many personal elements: a colorful and playful graphics, an immediate combat system and a complex crafting system, in some ways even too much complex. Being able to understand what you need and navigate through menus unfortunately limited in part a game that could have said much more, especially thanks to the excellent cooperative game management.
In summary, this is a beautiful game that is worth the price of purchase. It is a small download meaning most gamers will be able to jump in and play shortly after purchase, which is something fantastic in this age of instant gratification. I enjoyed my play through of the title even though I am not really the key demographic for it. It raises the bar for building games, and despite the few bugs I found whilst playing, you can see why you will get your money’s worth and then some out of it. For those looking to make characters and level up, Portal Knights provides a reliable “light” version of this genre. It has a charm that will keep you playing and a soundtrack that is so delightful it will be the only sound playing in the room when you have it on.
While it seemed like it tried hard to be Minecraft but with a twist, it still held a unique charm with its biomes, portals and eventful stories, as well as the class and custom character system. With the craft system lacking in favor for grinding combat, the game could use some balancing and tweaking to be what it advertises to the public.
Portal Knights is a visually appealing game, but lacks the sense of wonder and awe we are used to from the likes of Minecraft. The crafting and building systems might be present, but the game lacks a world worth exploring, which makes it all fall apart fairly quickly.
If you are looking for a game very similar to Minecraft, this is your game.
In this game, the player explores different types of worlds from the forest to the desert, in all of them you will have to collect many materials and enter dungeons in each world that were randomly generated except in the first worlds (because they are tutorials).
The soundtrack is relaxing and appropriate to every moment of the game: battles, exploration, final bosses...
The graphics are not as good as the games of this modern generation, but they fit the games of this class.
One of the problems of the game is that it can make people who are not accustomed to these games feel tired.
Another defect is that this game is a casual game that does not correspond to the types of games that should be on these consoles, if you have a more casual console, specifically Nintendo Switch, I would recommend that you at least try this game.
In conclusion, this game is for players who like to play relaxing games in which you have to build, explore, and do not mind the time you are playing because the hours in this game become seconds.
Portal knights is the type of game you can pick up and play no matter how much time you have. It's a quest based Minecraft with a focus on combat with a more basic building/crafting system. Being only $19.99, there is a lot of hidden dungeons, unique places to explore, and overall content to play with that will surely make you feel like you received your money's worth. The graphics are good, the music is cheerful, the crafting/building elements are deep. All in all, Keen/505 Games released a fine little gem here. However, this game might fall behind being released in 2017 in the midst of some other outstanding releases this year as well as having a limited crafting system when compared to the building depth that Minecraft has installed in the voxel genre. The only bug I ran into is my controller locking up after exiting the work bench, but a quick pause/un-pause fixes the issue.
I would not buy this game the creators are only out for money the best blocks in the game are divided amongst PC Nintendo PlayStation and Xbox should have to have four systems in order to get all the blocks and you have to buy the game four times in order to get all of the stuff that they offer for avid game players this is not the game for you because it will leave you disappointed and angry.
