Product Details:

Take a journey through a medieval world of swordsmen and magic, where witches have been hunted and brutally exterminated. Knights Contract follows the twisted tale of Heinrich, an immortal executioner, and Gretchen, a resurrected witch. Once the victim of Heinrich's blade by the order of the game's antagonist, Dr. Faust, Gretchen now has him by her side and the two must work together to rid the land of the supernatural foes who are cursing its people with the black spell of death.

  • Sword & Sorcery - Combine Heinrich's razor sharp scythe and Gretchen's explosive witchcraft in battle to devastate enemies with fluid, fast-paced combinations to ultimately return civility to the land
  • A guardian knight - As the Immortal executioner, players must team up with and protect Gretchen against hideous creatures and unspeakable evil as her magical prowess and mortality are the key to the duo's survival
  • An unlikely duo - Heinrich, an executioner loyal to the law, was made to kill the witch Gretchen, who in her final moments cursed him with immortal life. Gretchen has been mysteriously resurrected and Heinrich, under contract, now fights alongside her as her guardian
  • Medieval style - Explore a beautifully recreated 17th century Europe amidst the lore of witches and magic where people are crippled by fear and wide-spread panic runs rampant

Game Informer Rating:

Rated 7.0 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's GREAT! I loved it! In my opinion this game was GREATLY DONE. I can tell you to buy this game if you are a fan of God of War, Castlevania Lord of Shadows, or Zelda. This game has ALL those games as a mixture. More so of Castlevania. It is a wonderful game and the gameplay doesn't get stupid with excessive/ridiculous combos. The story line is interesting and easy to understand. The game isn't complicated like the simpleton below me said. Nice looking weapons, spells, scenery, and battling. The game doesn't go on overkill with ANYTHING, which is great and keeps it more realistic. I highly, highly recommend this game to anyone who loves a good action game, great battle, and a very interesting story line. I give it 2 thumbs way way up!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good game with some issues Overall I really do like this game alot. If you like hack n slash kind of games then this game will satisfy you. Some complaints I have about the game is that during boss battles there is slowdown and also when your fighting more than one enemy. The powers in the game are what I like. Don't care much for having to babysit Gretchen during the game. That's all I have to say about the game. Again if you are into hack n slash games then it is worth the purchase, if you are not then look elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Here comes another new hero! First of all, the story is amazing. When you first start off you find out the main character is an executioner which in the past beheaded many people accused of being witches. In turn, he becomes cursed with immortality from a particular witch, Grechen. One hundred years later, the executioner is back and hunting (I'll let you find out who), and that's is where the adventure begins. If you've played Darksiders, the cutscenes are very comparable. They're epic cutscenes and simply just stunningly awestruck. Now the gameplay, right as you start to play you noticed a lot of things. One being the hack and slash is similar to Darksiders. It's also very different, but at the same time takes some ideas from Darksiders including the executioners look and fighting style. I give gameplay a 9/10 instead of a 10/10 because of camera angles at times. Some moves you have are huge, and at times are not easily captured by the camera, so you're not sure exactly it looks like. In turn, it dosen't bother at all it's just something Bandai could've easily fixed. The only other complaint I have is that the character does not walk fast enough. Anyway, there are PLENTY of moves to do. In the begining you won't have enough enemies to try out all the moves. You can grab enemies and pull off any single combo you want from there including giving them the foot, slamming them against the wall, and tossing them where you please. Overall great game. Try it out you won't be disappointed. I haven't finished the ending yet, but hopefully this'll be a new series.
