Lunar Knights


The two original Boktai games released for the GBA were among the most innovative and unique titles in recent memory. This also limited them to a very small fanbase and...

Lunar Knights Review


In Lunar Knights, you take control of two different heroes, Lucian and Aaron, one powered by the sun, one powered by the moon, in an attempt to free the world from the vampiric legion. If you are familiar with the Vampire Hunter (Baktai GBA) series,...

great graphics, music, cut scenes, space shooter features

simplistic story, frustrating minions

There's a lot to like here if you are a gamer with patience, and if you are familiar with the Boktai (Vampire Hunter) series, you probably are. There are solid production values here, even if the story and dialog does go a bluntly purple). The game...

Lunar Knights


By now, most people probably know that Lunar Knights is not an all-new IP for the Nintendo DS, but actually one more chapter in the Boktai series, which originally appeared on the Game Boy Advance. Don't feel bad if you didn't know that – Konami...

Excellent space shooter sequences ; Interesting story and characters ; High quality production values

Intricate combat system that fails to connect ; Generally slow pace ; Cheap deaths

Even in all my years of gaming, few titles have come along that have made me say, "This I have to play." Years ago, Boktai was one such game, and though I never did get a chance to try it, Konami is giving me a second chance. Despite being a sort of...

Lunar Knights


In the midst of the GBA's life, there was a game called Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand. It was created by legendary game developer Hideo Kojima, famous for his Metal Gear Solid franchise, as well as cult hits such as Snatcher and Zone of the Enders....

I had a good time with the game and it certainly has technical merits, but gameplay wise it's nothing more than a pretty cool action RPG. A weak story and semi-clunky controls prevented the game from being a lot more enjoyable. Regardless, it's a good...

Lunar Knights - DS review at Thunderbolt Games


No longer must the creatures of the night rely on some dark lord to suddenly appear. Instead, the bloodthirsty villains have taken over the world with a blend of magic, technology, and brute strength. To ensure their success, the vampires have created...

Lunar Knights


First shown to me at E3 2006, Lunar Knights was a Nintendo DS title shown very early in development. As a result, we were not allowed to film the gameplay and we could not interview the Konami PR representative about the game. As a result of this, I...

Kojima Productions completely surprised me with Lunar Knights. It is a fun and enjoyable Nintendo DS title that I completely recommend. While it may not be for everyone, fans of Castlevania, Zelda, or any Action/RPG genre will find something to love...

Lunar Knights Review


Kojima Productions does it again, delivering a wonderful vampire slaying RPG that DS gamers need to buy.

Lunar Knights is a wonderful 3D dungeon crawl with light role-playing elements, lots of items to collect and two different wonderful characters to play and enjoy. The gameplay is multilayered, the storyline is deep and the overall presentation is the...
