Not really interested into coop games, but since it's cheaper than season passes, I'm buying.

For a longer single/co-op game, and for few more pounds/dollars/etc. I would recommend Lego Marvel superheroes, and wait for a steam sale for this one.

Dunno if it's good, can't try it before weekend. Unless I find some time later…
Lego Marvel on my side costs 3 times more than Blood Knights, but it's still cheaper than "season passes" so that's probably the relation.

Too arcadey for me.

I like action games but theres a point when it crosses over the arcade like gameplay (street fighter like)that I don't like.

This looks and plays very similar to Castlevania, an action adventure game with very very mild RPG elements. If that's your cup of tea.

The game only cost me $10 dollars so I can't complain. It was also a year late as it was stuck in development hell due to the publisher going bankrupt. If you find it on a Steam sale for a few dollars then I'd recommend it.

Played it for an hour.

1. This is a console crap game that's ported onto PC.
2. This is not RPG, this is a platformer.
3. Camera and movement are so badly designed I can't believe they dare to sell this.
4. Characters and the story hardly drag me into playing it a single second more.
5. It uses checkpoint save system - you can't save anywhere.

1/10

And that 1 is perhaps too much, but since graphics is not that awful as the rest of the game, just can't put 0.
I feel sorry I bought for this crap hoping it's at least a bit fun. Uninstalled.

its ok
the dialog is not that bad and the story offers choices now and then. this gives me enough incentive to finish it.. unlike others.
2/5.. depends on the ending ).
oh, and I like the models
