Knight Squad 2 - Switch Review
"Will it be nominated for tonnes of awards? Unlikely. Is it a fun time to be had with friends? Absolutely!"
In May last year, I reviewed the original entry to the Knight Squad series when it came to Nintendo Switch. I settled on 65% as I thought that the game had polish but it just needed a greater sense of plot, fine-tuning to its controls and AI and its long load times were substantial. Knight Squad 2 aims to fix a lot of these issues but if you're unfamiliar with the series, the game is a topdown action party title that pits eight players against one another in a sea of game modes.
Knight Squad 2 contains a total of 13 game modes. Each mode is played with up to eight players and while you can play single-player with seven bots, the game is much more fun with as many friends you can get together. Each mode is uniquely different, ranging from Capture the Flag to Battle Royale to Soccer and each are worth at least one try until you and your friends decide on your favourites.
Knight Squad 2's biggest improvement is its online cross-platform multiplayer. The original felt quite bare-bones in terms of single-player longevity so this addition helps to add more value to the game and justify its price tag better.
