Review – Spiral Knights (via Grey Havens)

Landed on an alien world? Struggling for survival? Hack-and-slash with your friends? Cute looking graphics? Yes, please! Spiral Knights is a great game that gets your immediately involved in the action. Helpful tool tips as you traverse the first area help you learn your character.

I especially enjoyed the choice of gameplay. You can use mouse to move, AWSD, or a gamepad. It’s nice that they give you the option up front.

Spending about another hour playing, I leveled up my toon, leveled up my gear and enjoyed the game far better after I got away from my crappy pea shooter to a much better ranged gun (did I ever tell you I love playing ranged characters)?

I also realized that apparently this game is like 7 years old… don’t matter! I’m still new to all of it!

See my first 15 minutes gameplay after the jump:

This would be a roll GREED. If you enjoy these types of fast action paced gameplay with a simple storyline, this one is for you!
