Portal Knights 

 

I am extremely thankful Family Friendly Gaming purchased a copy of Portal Knights on the Playstation 4. The PR and Marketing folks representing this game failed us completely. Portal Knights is a bit of a failure as well. Portal Knights is a clone of Dragon Quest Builders. It just does not do nearly as good of a job. Especially in the guidance department. Which Dragon Quest Builders did an amazing job in. There is also a lot less to do in Portal Knights.

Portal Knights really pushes the online game play mode. That is the first selectable play section. Then the secondary play button is the normal offline game play. I think they got that a bit backwards if you know what I mean. There is also a local multiplayer mode for two family members. So two family members can struggle in Portal Knights together. Expect to die early and often.

Gear breaks pretty quickly in Portal Knights. Monsters start easy and then get really tough later on. Make sure you level up as much as you can. Portal Knights requires quite a bit of grinding. Portal Knights bored me to tears. There is not much of a story to keep me interested. Families can play a knight, archer, or mage in small areas or large areas. There is too much random generation in Portal Knights for me.

The issues families can have with Portal Knights is magic, violence, and more. Players can fight with swords, bows, arrows, and magical wands. If your impatient then you will probably find Portal Knights very difficult. I learned at first that jumping ahead was a very bad idea. The enemies would one shot kill me, and it took me fifty attacks to take them out. So I learned to grind it out.

Portal Knights lets us mine and craft. The craft tables may need to be fixed first. Make sure you keep a variety of blocks in your backpack, and on your character. Why? So you can make things, and fix things easier. The blocky world in Portal Knights has a lot of vegetation on it that makes it look less like Minecraft. At least until you look below the surface. The loading times in Portal Knights are on the long side. This game is worth ten dollars in my opinion.
