Knights Contract is the saddest kind of game: one rife with potential, but shoddily constructed. Both its story and unique approach to combat give it a distinct flavor, but it never follows through on its ambition. Its intriguing narrative quickly gets bogged down in a cliched story of one-note villains in a quest for power. While its combat is gratifying, it's too clumsy to master and too many sequences are built around cheap deaths, frustrating QTEs, and recycled level design. Knights Contract is a game about an immortal knight with a deathwish. After playing through his story, one can see why.
