If you seek to conquer Black Knight Sword’s challenges, I suggest thinking real hard before you buy it. It’s a good-looking game with a unique style that screams Goichi Suda’s name, but the gameplay is rarely rewarding. So much is working against you that you feel like the only reason you’re making any progress at all is because of pure luck rather than skill.

Black Knight Sword invokes beauty and inventiveness in some areas and brain-melting fury in others. It continues Suda 51's streak of awkwardly endearing titles. Unfortunately, it also retains a few flaws from gestation. If the difficulty were more balanced or if there was more depth to the combat, it'd be easier to recommend.

Had the actual gameplay been less clunky, more well balanced, more challenging and less aggressively abusive, Black Knight Sword's sense of style and unique presentation would have been healthy bonuses on top of an already stable foundation. As is stands though, the game's artistic atmosphere and sense of self are all it has going for it, and sadly that's not quite enough.
