Review – Playmobil Knights

 

Playmobil KnightsPublisher: Dreamcatcher Games
Developer: Playmobil Interactive
Platform(s): Nintendo DS
Genre: Adventure

Rating: Everyone
ESRB Content Descriptors: Crude Humor, Mild Cartoon Violence

The Scoop: From farmhand to hero, Dreamcatcher Games delivers yet another fun handheld for fans of the Playmobil series!

The Setup: Players assume the role of a radish farmer named Brian who dreams of becoming a hero. His dreams soon become true when the evil magician Flimflam captures all of the King’s knights and sends the bad guys to ravage amongst an unprotected kingdom. The only way to defeat the evil Flimflam is to retrieve the Magical Sword of Legends.

Along our journey, players will meet and befriend five different dragons, which can use as a means of transportation around the kingdom, as well as upgrading them to move faster and better attack enemy dragons. There are also loads of items to buy such as potions and weapons as well as new armor which is highly upgradeable to suite your battle needs.

All of this, along with 90 missions and the five minigames, add for a very fulfilling experience and should supply hours of gameplay.

What’s Hot:

  • Fun and easy to pick up for anybody with a Nintendo DS
  • Great visuals for a handheld
  • Lots of exploration gives this game loads of replayability
  • Five different minigames allowing for a change in pace during gameplay

What’s Not:

  • A lot of the environments look similar after awhile
  • Gameplay can become repetitive after awhile

Some very pleasing visuals on the Nintendo DS

Final Verdict: Playmobil Knights is a fun and addictive game for people of all ages and an easy way to get that nostalgic feeling we get when we play with our old Playmobil toys. A very decent competitor for the Lego games that have been released, and hard to pass up at the cheap price of only $19.99!

    Awesome job! I did a paper me2che9 head for Halloween this year and it wasn’t even 10% in your castle. I found it very dufiicflt to get even surfaces as well as the strength that was required to maintain structural integrity something your castle really needs. Looking fwd to your next post about how you built it.
