Knights and Bikes
Top Critic Average
Knights and Bikes tells a touching, albeit overlong, coming of age story about friendship and grief.
Light on action but humorous and made with love, Knights and Bikes holds something for adults and kids alike.
This co-op tale of two delinquent young girls feels particularly at home on the Switch, in what is one of the best story-based games of recent years.
One of the best story-based games of the year, that manages to capture the joys and pains of childhood (and riding bikes) in a very relatable and compelling way.
Even when the action gets predictable, the charming presentation and small touches keep the sense of adventure alive
Knights & Bikes is an endlessly charming, knock-about adventure.
The charm that covers nearly every inch of this game is also infectious, especially as this medium can better actualize its main characters’ imagination into something playable.
Although it’s best played in co-op mode, there’s a fair amount of fun to be had in playing alone too. Throw in the fact that Knights and Bikes features clearly defined mechanics along with some powerful instances and you’ve got yourself quite the charming indie experience.
Knights and Bikes is a lovely warm blanket of childhood adventure and imagination, and a perfect game to play with a young family.
It’s such a warm game. Touching and heartfelt, masterfully capturing the cosy excitement of the places and stories we explore as children.
