- Controls don’t feel quite right, often leading to cheap and frustrating deaths.
- The single-player Challenge Mode feels lacklustre, providing no story or context.
- Long load times
- Each character plays the same, only altering cosmetically.
- AI bots are aggressive but dumb – especially in the Soccer mode.
- Not colourblind friendly, especially in Serial Killer mode where it’s all about going for the enemy of a specific colour.
Final Score: 65%
Knight Squad is the perfect game when the gang gets together. Its various modes keep it from being easily disregard as a one-and-done mediocre experience and turns it into a party game that can be easily revisited for its frantic fun. However once your friends have left the party, Knight Squad will be quickly uninstalled for its lack of single-player replayability; and with a lack of personality to call its own, it is easily forgettable.
