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 One of the best games ever!! This is a very good hack and slash game with elements of magic casting. There was a few times that I did not think that I could get past it, but I got through it. Well worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basically, a giant escort mission. Good combat and an intriguing storyline mask the fact that the entire game is basically an escort mission. Heinrich, the main character, is immortal, so you do not need to worry about a health bar for him, which makes the game that much easier. Gretchen, your companion, is not. You need constantly to watch out for her, because this game has some of the worst artificial intelligence that I have seen in a long time. Stunning scenery, visuals, and music depicting Medieval Europe adds to the mood of the game. Combat is commendable, as well as the storyline. The combined powers of Heinrich's scythe and Gretchen's witchcraft make brawl appealing, despite the fact that it's practically essential in order to survive. There are almost no puzzles in-game, although that doesn't mean the game is a breeze. You can't just go full-out force on the enemies or bosses; It requires strategy to overcome rivals. Knights Contract constantly gives you new enemy after new enemy, which doesn't leave the player feeling bored with an over-used opponent. This game has some of the ugliest and largest bosses I have ever seen so far, and it is a requirement to use the combined powers of your scythe and witchcraft to defeat the bosses. There are also (those cutscene things where you need to press the buttons that they prompt you for that I totally forget the name of right now. What are the called? QTE's? Anyways,) that you must also complete in order to beat the boss. The buttons that you need to press are, in a way, unrelated to what's happing in the cutscene, but one can manage. However, if the incorrect button is pressed, the boss gains one-third of its health, which can be rather frustrating in the later levels. All in all, if you are one who doesn't mind watching out for blatantly incompetent companions and loves a good hack-and-slice game, this is for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs to be Finished or Polished First and for most this is a great game. Storyline is pretty cool, Combat is par for a hack and slash till you get to the strong magic thats when things gets interesting (in a good way). The AI needs alot of work, You need more spells for knocking the aerial enemies. On the fire boss if Gretchen gets caught in the circle of fire she will just stand there and continue taking damage, if you run in to grab her you will drop her everytime you take damage (about every sec) so you can't get her out of it usualy it was a gameover for me cause she died. On the Thunder boss one hit from the ground slam will take Gretchen to the minimum amount of health for her to live, so one more hit and she dies. at the end of every boss fight there is a cutscene that you have to press specific buttons to finish them, but if you miss one button you have to fight the boss all over again and the time to hit the buttons are so short if you don't know which ones to hit before it pops up you will probably miss it. All in all I almost threw my controller, and I have never done that before. Not even on Dante's Inferno. In my opinion (which I guess you care about since you've read this far) wait till it drops in price, I wold spend $30 on it. Just not $60
