Black Knight Sword Review | GamingTrend

GamingTrend writes:

"Suda 51, and to a larger extent, Grasshopper Manufacture, are responsible for some of the most crazy, what-the-hell-did-I-just-play games in this console generation. No More Heroes and Shadows of the Damned prove that Grasshopper is capable of marrying its grindhouse/punk-rock aesthetic and Japanese eccentricity with solid game design, creating nonsensical – but nevertheless, entertaining – video games. Black Knight Sword is Grasshopper Manufacture’s latest – a collaboration with Hungarian developer Digital Reality. Together they’ve created a throwback to the sidescrolling games of yesteryear. It sounds awesome in theory, but it relies so heavily on its weird premise to carry the game forward that it seems to have left the actual gameplay behind." (Black Knight Sword, PS3, Xbox 360) 63/100
