The Game Review
While the game may deceivingly look similar to the Dynasty Warrior series, players will be quick to find that for one, their armies and troops are “actually important,” and two, one cannot go around slaying all the troops by themselves. This way the battles in the game add more strategic realism as well as combat realism for players to both appreciate and enjoy. The game especially puts an emphasis on army coordination as different formations and tactics can secure victories while well-timed flanks and rushes can create an opening for comebacks at any time. Depending on how the player builds up and progresses their character, the army that follows will reflect attributes of the character’s chosen class and determine what kind of units can be used. Different units also prove more effective or weak against others that caution players to taker their fights wisely.
However, a notable similarity between Dynasty Warriors and Tiger Knight are its map terrain and formation as snakey paths combined with great halls and castles within various environments are another point of strategy players must take into account.
As for the combat system of the game, many have looked to the popular series, Mount & Blade, for comparison. First, players may choose from which direction to block or attack and long-range attacks seem to be more physics-based like the one found in Mount & Blade. The mounting physics have also been similarly comparable to Mount & Blade that can be found in Tiger Knight at higher levels of play. However, the army system is said to be much more intricate in Tiger Knight as the maps provide various tactical options along with the company of others that fight along and against you.
For a bit of background, like aforementioned, the setting and era are placed in China during the Three Kingdoms period that reflects a lot of the visuals seen within the game. Tiger Knight attempts to relive the battles of this era by offering players to take part in battlefields and scenarios true to the historical timeline. Additionally, each 400+ weapon types and pieces of armor were modeled after the antiques of the said era.
