Undead Knights (PSP)

 

These days, if you want to create instant fun, it seems as if the solution is to "just add zombies." Undead Knights for the PSP, from publisher Tecmo, takes this philosophy and runs with it by injecting a healthy dose of reanimated rotting corpses into...

Inventive, repetitious and plenty of fun. If you were to take the gothic look and feel of the Devil May Cry Series, combined it with the endless waves of similar...

Controlling zombies ; Solid controls ; Cool visuals

Repetitive levels ; Frustrating camera ; Lack of enemy variety

Command rotting corpses as the leader of your very own undead army

Turning your enemies into brain-hungry zombies ; Commanding your undead horde ; Joyfully killing allies for your own selfish benefit

Controls can be wonky ; So can the camera ; Rampaging enemies repeatedly knocking you down

Building an army of rotting corpses is a blast, and it's especially satisfying to see your current tally of allies - represented by decaying zombie heads - grow along the bottom of the HUD. However, as much fun as it is to sic your pale-skinned psychos...

Review: Undead Knights (Sony PSP)

 

Let's get this out of the way up-front: the idea, alone, of Dynasty Warriors with zombies is, to be honest, pretty awesome, and I don't know why more people don't do something like that. Give me an army of zombies to either decimate or direct, a blade...

Undead Knights is a fun, if basic, PSP title that cross-breeds the hack-and-slash action of Dynasty Warriors with a dumbed-down version of Overlord’s troop management to good benefit, though it often feels like it had the potential to be more than it...

Undead Knights Sony PSP Review

 

In the game, you choose between three mighty warriors. These folks were once in the employ of King Gradis, helping keep peace in the kingdom of Cavalier. However, when they try to inform the king that his young, beautiful queen is up to no good (she's...

Features a combination of zombie management and hack-and-slash action, lots of blood and gore, achievements and upgrades, enjoyable multiplayer (especially zombie tossing), hard-rock soundtrack

The environments aren't anything spectacular, gameplay stays the same

We can't go a couple of hours without running into something zombie related. There are movies, TV shows, comic books and video games, including the upcoming Left 4 Dead 2. But when was the last time zombies actually served a purpose, instead of running...

Just when I was getting thoroughly sick of zombie games, along comes Tecmo with another one. Only, this one turns the entire idea of zombie slaughter on its head and manages to do something surpr...

Combat

Controls work pretty well, with responsive attacks, nice hit detection and decent battle controls overall

Boring combat and bad graphics

The game's combat consists for about 95% of whacking people, which becomes very boring after some time. You will have to dodge, use your zombies and special attacks while fighting, but for the most part you are just masking on the square button and...

A zombie horde at your command.

Undead Knights PSP Review

 

The crowd control genre that Dynasty Warriors created hasn't exactly been bursting with new ideas. The majority of such games largely follow the same formula of taking on legions of dim-witted enemies, whilst occasionally coming face-to-face with...

Undead Knights may bring a genuinely fresh addition to the crowd control genre, but because of its design missteps and the fact that it's just not as enjoyable to play as any of its inspirations, the game is quite simply a wasted opportunity that...

Undead Knights (PSP) review

 

If there's one thing in the videogame world that people can?t get rid of, it's those undead walkabouts called zombies. They've populated all sorts of genres and the poor sods are always receiving punishment because they just wouldn?t give up trying to...

There's so much more you could do with an army of zombies than what Undead Knights leads you to believe. The way the game is executed doesn?t do the idea any justice, but I?d be interested in a sequel to see the concept fully fleshed out. As it is,...
