1UP:Black Knight Sword Review

1UP:First impressions are important in art, but they're certainly not everything. I really despised my first few hours of pain in Dark Souls. I couldn't imagine why anyone would put themselves through such an arduous gauntlet of pain and suffering. Of course, I now know that my ignorance of FromSoft's language was at the heart of this misinformed opinion, and upon learning Souls' inherent lexicon, it became one of my favorite games of 2011. But for every game that builds like Dark Souls, there's an analogue that makes a fantastic first impression, only to show its cards far too early. So it goes with Black Knight Sword, the newest downloadable title from Grasshopper and Suda51. (Black Knight Sword, PS3, Xbox 360) C-/A+
