Ultimately, Portal Knights aims to put RPG elements and Zelda-style combat into a Minecraft-like game. Minecraft works because everything is systemic. It's huge, but everything you can find conforms to particular conditions – diamond only appears below a certain height, sugar cane is found on sand next to water, etc. – so you know where to look. When you remove these systems, you have a Portal Knights island; the resources are all over the place, at any height, and if you can't see them, you want you need another island. It removes the incentive to explore, because there is nothing to find.

Portal Knights uses Nintendo Switch to cover some of its failiures and become a better game than the original one. A videogame that, without been perfect, it entertains the player for a lot of hours. [Víctor Rodríguez separately reviewed the PS4 (5.5) and Switch (7) versions. Their scores have been averaged]

Portal Knights tried to combine the style of the famous sand-box games such as Minecraft with action-RPG games like The Elder Scrolls, and the game succeeded in many points. I spent hours playing, exploring, searching and finishing quests so I could develop my own home and character more and more. This is a game that is definitely worth experimenting with and especially on the Nintendo Switch.

The Minecraft's heritage here is inescapable. A good experiencie, and a really adictive game that allows us to improve our character through procedural environments.
