The Gameplay

Do you like Real Time Strategy? Or are Role Playing Games your preference… Why not try both genres in one?
The Single Player RTS part of the game consists of three addictive, story driven campaigns. Each of them takes place in a different geographical area and bounds you every minute with new challenges like rescuing a kidnapped Princess or fighting a ferocious Dragon - or combat with nasty, ugly, smelly monsters and the bones of the walking dead.

During the campaigns the player develops his characters and gains access to new weapons, special armor and magic items. He also has the possibility of creating new characters or building new structures. All characters controlled by the player gain experience and go "level-up", increasing their combat potential and magical abilities. The characters may also find special items and weapons, armor and magical amulets, helping them to increase and enhance their skills.

Additionally, an extensive RPG mode surprises with an even larger selection of maps, quests, weapons and enemies, plus a highly improved character development. Skills selection, merchandise, the hiring of helpful characters and character inventories. This RPG Mode for experienced gamers can be played alone or over the Internet in companion network matches.

For RTS fans and friends of massive multiplayer battles, several RTS skirmish and MP modes guarantee endless hours of exciting gameplay.

KnightShift Demo

this game is OK. most demos on this site i play for 10 minutes then i stop that sh@#$t. but this game i actually played for 35 minutes straight. the graphics are great. detailed worlds and textures. my only complaint is that the 3d animations for the characters are choppy. game play is typical diablo type hack and slash and complete quests. the game has a comical wit to it. good voice acting. Only bad part is that the demo doesnt let you play the Real time strategy. only the RPG. also no Multiplayer. just campaign or RPG mode. overall i give this game 7/10 and i would definately try it when the full version comes out.

I agree with you niggra, the animations are far too choopy, but I didn't like the voice animations for some of the charactures and units. Although done very well, sometimes I think that imperfection is better. Also I don't like how this game is based on squares.(Anyone remember Earth 2150?) The only other thing is the unorigional quests. "Go find my lost sons." "My cows need to be taken to some hut in the middle of nowhere." "My ultra protected town needs help fighiting off a couple of wolfs" Come on now... Otherwise not bad =D

It's nice, but its developer isn't it too.It has get a rating of 69 % test value from a german pc mag, called "Gamestar".The producers of this game didn't like that and make some trouble with it.PS:The phonetic of the title "KnightShift" has some similarities to the words (in a province german accent) 'nei g'schift.It means in engl.: Piss in (... a headless neck, for example).
