GSY Video PS4 Xbox One Switch PC

A Knight's Quest will be available on all systems later today and after playing the game for a few hours, we have what we could call a provisional verdict and 4K videos to share. Join us inside to find out what we think of this tribute to the action/adventure genre.

Verdict


A Knight's Quest is a pleasant game to play, but it does not have much personality as it mimics what a lot of cult classics did in the past. There's a bit of Zelda, Ratchet and Clank and even Monkey Island (the beach track is quite reminiscent of it), but it feels more like a tribute than anything else. Is it a problem? Depends on what you expect from such a title obviously, but the game also has a few issues: there is a bit too much backtracking, humor works most of the time but it's not always funny, combat could use more feedback and there are a bunch of optimization issues in some areas. Other than that, there is fun to be found in A Knight's Quest, with the new abilities you unlock which give you access to new areas, the nice puzzles you must solve and the world you're free to explore, just be aware of its shortcomings before you consider the purchase.
  • On the upside
  • A colorful game world which is nice to discover
  • Excellent soundtrack
  • The puzzles
  • A mix of different inspirations which works well
  • On the downside
  • Character design is questionable
  • The game should save more often
  • Relies too heavily on backtracking
  • Combat is a bit messy and lacks feedback
  • Deja
