Knights Contract Review | JPS

"Whenever there is a new game by Game Republic, it always turns out to be a hack-and-slash or an action adventure game. Some of their titles were huge successes, like Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, while others are a total disappointment. Game Republic’s new game is Knights Contract, a tale of two characters where both must depend on each other in order to survive." - JPS

I heard it was okay, but now all these negative reviews. Jeez.

Of all the Eastern games out this quarter, Trinity seems to be getting more favourable reviews (which isn't saying much >_> - average about 6.1/10 - Metacritic is NOT an average and is missing a tonne of reviews); Hyperdimension Neptunia, not so much. Ar Tonelico should do o.k. with the critics too. More on topic, Majin was the only game of Game Republic's that actually got decent reviews. Consequently, that was the one that I disliked the most on account of the horrid Western/ Disneyesque character designs and terrible VOs :)

There's a lot of reasons why Japanese games are the current whipping boys of the industry, and not everything can be attributed to these games simply being crap (sure there are some duds), much as the media might lead one to believe.

Tastes have changed, mostly. FPSes and AAA action titles are the new standard (unless you're an indie game). There seems to be little leniency for games that are good but not the norm. Contrary to everyone clamouring for innovation, all people REALLY want is just a slight tweaking of a classic formula - hence why CoD and Halo sell so well. Too different, and you just alienate your audience. Look at the backlash going on with WoW atm, when they changed their winning (cash milking) formula.

Personally, I love crazy Eastern games, the more outlandish the better! Different strokes for different folks.

If you had interest in this game when you saw it's many gameplay vids and interviews etc and are now not interested in it cause a "reviewer" gave it less than a 9 then you are simply just sheep. Reviewers butt boy.

Go atleast rent it and have your fun. Stop being sheep.

Too bad. This game looked promising....

Chris3992699d ago

Its a fun game for what it is. Definitely has style and moments of greatness even if the overall experience isn't spectacular.

Ya, I suggest to simply rent it or borrow it. Its bad.
