Its focus on humor instead of drama or pathos will be a selling point for players weary of self-important heroes and dark themes but on the flip side, humor is very subjective. From its title to its overall mechanics, A Knight’s Tale seems like a safely familiar variation on a popular but over-played theme, appealing for its recognizable form but less satisfying for its lack of creative ambition.
That's not to say that this is all just a cheap imitation. Fans of these kinds of games will still have fun with the platforming, the puzzles, and more in A Knight's Quest, but those who have played similar titles won't get the same level of enjoyment, especially with a story that falls flat and a combat system that lacks the necessary weight.
I loved my time with Rusty in A Knight’s Quest. While it clearly doesn’t have the extreme level of polish of a Zelda title, it manages to capture the sense of exploration and progression of Link’s earlier adventures and mix it up with a real sense of its own identity. The added emphasis on platforming creates an interesting fusion of genres but isn’t without a few technical issues. That said, fans of classic 3D adventure games would do well to check it out.
