    Although it seems clearly inspired by The Legend of Zelda series, A Knight’s Quest forms its own footprint. Despite a few minor setbacks, A Knight’s Quest does a great job delivering a fun, light-hearted adventure. Its funny storytelling sets it apart and makes a welcome addition to the Switch library. Genre fans should certainly check this one out.

    There is an incredible amount of charm and character to A Knight’s Quest. I’d strongly encourage anyone who thinks they can get past the technical and combat issues to give A Knight’s Quest a try. While those issues are substantial and may turn some off, there is an amazing game resting just below the surface.

    A Knight's Quest is very far from the games it takes inspiration from, lacks of personality and presents some combat system issues and bugs. Give it a try only if you are an hardcore fan of The Legend of Zelda series.

    A Knight´s Quest is a good game to younger players. The title presents a simple history with simple challenges. The graphical side is a little bit poor, but it can be a good choice if you want a classic adventure at a good price for a younger player.

    It can be difficult for small studios to get a good start in the video game business. At Knight's Quest proves it once again. It's not a bitter failure, as there are things to keep, but it's not enough to simply copy the great names of this industry to make a good title. The lack of originality and the chaotic technique got the better of the game for our part. On the other hand, if you are not afraid to play a RPG you have already seen 25 times, the story length and the price might seduce you.

    A Knight’s Quest brings a much needed light-hearted take on the action-adventure fantasy genre, with a genuinely funny sense of humour running throughout and plenty of world to explore. It’s marred by a poor navigation system, inconsistent visual quality and an overall lack of polish. There’s plenty of fun to be had on this quest, but there’s very little to write home about when the Switch is full to the brim with similar titles that provide superior experiences.

    That A Knight's Quest is being sold on the eShop at all is ludicrous. Combat, enemy design, the camera, the save system, and the script were all in desperate need of more time. Sky9 releasing the title as is, is simply downright embarrassing. Beyond the lack of polish and the frequent bugs, this is a title that ignores 20 years of conventional game design philosophy, and massacres itself in the process. Few have managed to mangle the basics of 3D combat so badly. Play anything else. A Knight's Quest is one of the worst games of 2019.
