If you're looking for a good zombie fix this Halloween, Undead Knights should be on the top of your list. The addictive zombie-commanding action, multiplayer options and blood-soaked presentation will make you want to join this legion.
Uh, there really isn't anything like this on the PSP, and there is some fun to be had, but only a select few will embrace the gore and clumsy, over-the-top action; of course, they'll have to forgive the game's lack of flair.
Sans renouveler le genre du beat'em all de masse, Undead Knights y injecte suffisamment de sang neuf pour qu'on s'y attarde le temps de quelques parties. Proposant diverses idées sympathiques, le jeu s'en sort grâce à un bon capital sympathie s'étiolant malheureusement à mesure que les heures s'égrènent. En effet, on lui reprochera, outre un mode solo un peu court, ses mécanismes redondants, son graphisme indigne d'une PSP et quelques soucis de visibilité. Toutefois, si vous vous pourléchez les babines rien qu'à l'évocation de Dynasty Warriors, vous pourrez aisément vous laisser tenter par ce jeu atypique nous permettant d'incarner trois êtres revanchards revenus des profondeurs des limbes pour assouvir leur vengeance.
Undead Knights is built on an interesting premise, but that idea isn't taken to the extremes like it should have been. The humor isn't played up enough, the controls can be problematic, it can get rather repetitive and the whole thing just isn't as polished as I would have liked to have seen. If you absolutely love zombies and their lingering walk is funny to you, then you might find something to enjoy here. Otherwise, pass on this one.
If you must play everything that contains Zombies, this might hold your interest for a bit, but the interesting concept quickly loses its appeal. There are way too many short-comings to make this a worth-while purchase; a bit more development time would have done wonders to the final product. If you see this Zombie Army, I suggest you move in the other direction.
There's nothing entirely terrible about Undead Knights, except for maybe the soldiers that infinitely spawn out of nowhere. It's just disappointing that the action remains so simple and unremarkable when many similar games exist for the PSP. This is especially true when you consider that creating a zombie army--its one leg up on such games as Dynasty Warriors and Warriors Orochi--doesn't let you do anything much more exciting than demolish an iron gate.
It often feels half-finished. The basic premise and idea is often better than its inelegant execution, and the game exhausts its pool of ideas by the end of the third level. There's a good concept resting within Undead Knights, but Tecmo have completely failed at bringing it to life.
Undead Knights is a game that starts off very well but quickly degrades into a monotonous experience that is made more difficult than it needs to be due to a shoddy camera. If the thrill of creating zombies and using them to attack waves of nearly identical enemies is enough for you, then you won't find another game like this on a handheld. However if you consider variety the spice of death prepare to be both frustrated and disappointed.
