Inventive storytelling blends with some of the most bizarre sights you'll experience in a 2D platformer to make Black Knight Sword a real gem on the presentation front. It's deliciously weird from start to finish, but that weirdness only partially distracts from the repetitious, uninspiring gameplay and brutal difficulty. For a game that's so strongly unique, Black Knight Sword sadly bleeds out much of its charm through a few gaping flaws.

Ultimately I found Black Knight Sword for the PlayStation Network to be wonderfully creepy as I really appreciated Suda51’s artistic vision. Shortcomings aside the unique visual experience that Black Knight Sword offers up is well worth a few hours of your time. At a price tag of $9.99 you certainly can’t go wrong; however, just do not expect an experience you will come back to after you have put the game through its paces.

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.
