Critic Reviews for Knight Squad

There's no shortage of cool party games these days, and Knight Squad stands among them. It's not something I see myself returning to time and time again like some of its peers, but I got a kick out its accessible, action-packed multiplayer. If you're coming along for the ride, be sure to bring friends.

For simplistic multiplayer fun, Knight Squad is up for the job, even if there are a couple of kinks in its armor that players may have to look past.

Knight Squad is a fun distraction to play with friends, but there's nothing for the single-player lone knight to sink their sword into.

If you're looking for pure arcade action that's a blast to play locally, Knight Squad is worth checking out. There's a ton of modes to keep things varied, and the chaotic pace is perfect for party play.

Ultimately, Knight Squad simply does not have the quality of gameplay to take full advantage of its impressive list of modes. A complete experience could have left a mark, but nobody will be knighting Knight Squad when all is said and done.

As far as party games go, Knight Squad has more going for it than you'd expect at first glance. It's accessible, it's frenetic, and it's fun. The lack of online multiplayer and a worthwhile single-player mode will be easily overlooked when you've got your personal squad of knights seeking battle in your living room.

Judging a primarily multiplayer title always comes with a caveat. Chainsawesome has developed a game of excellent fundamentals that, under ideal conditions, could provide endless hours of fast-paced, chaotic fun. The lack of meaningful content for the single player is not a major issue – this is not a title meant for gaming's recluses. With already shaky matchmaking, and the chances of regularly rounding up four or five spare Xbox controllers (let alone willing playmates) in the same living room rather slim, however, some of Knight Squad's potential is sadly squandered.

To sum it all up, I highly recommend Knight Squad.
