While waiting for the latest Terraria Otherworld I decided to buy Portal Knights, because the game itself is very similar to the title Terraria and perhaps can be even called Terraria in 3D. The main difference is we do not have one world, but a dozen islands we explore with portals, we fight with bosses, we build and craft. Very satisfying experience.
I just recently acquired this game through a friend. Minecraft meets RPG maybe, you can play as a mage, a warrior, or as a ranger. The list of items to collect is amazing to say the least. Created by 505 games who put out Rocket League has some awesome graphics. Special events take place in the game so its not always the same old grind. I love to build in game so this was right down my alley also I love to collect, Its my vice when it comes to games. I recently had a stroke in November of last year so my ability to play complex games are very limited now. This game is easy to play single and multiplayer modes are great. I really enjoy this game a lot.
Portal Knights completely lacks scope and depth. There is pretty much no reason to play this game. In theory, Portal Knights is a Minecraft clone with the addition of quests (but unfortunately the quests are worthless). You travel through a series of worlds by finding portals. Each world has different resources for you to harvest, so you'll often need to travel among several worlds to collect everything you need. You can setup a base in any or all worlds you travel to, but it makes the most sense to declare one world as your Home world and setup a single base there. The whole point of the game, from what I can tell, is to collect items in order to craft better items which help you collect more items faster and craft even more items... It's just an endless cycle of resource harvesting and crafting with no meaningful end goal. The 3+ boss fights are made easier if you have higher-level gear, but who cares!? The bosses are just meaningless fights you must encounter at specific points before you can advance. Plus, the penalty for dying is the loss of some coins (which serve no useful purpose), so nothing is lost if you face a boss too soon and die a lot in the process. Very few NPCs serve any purpose, but occasionally you will find one that runs a store or offers a quest. I have yet to see a point to the coins you collect as all shopkeepers sell useless garbage (like seeds or pets) that you can easily collect in any number of worlds. The handful of random quests you encounter periodically throughout the various worlds nearly all require you to find or craft a certain item and bring it back to the NPC. A few will have you kill X number of an enemy type. The easiest way to finish the item quests is to just warp back to your home base, craft the item, and bring it back to the NPC... but there's a problem. The Universe map doesn't tell you which quests you have active in each world, so it's impossible to track your quest status in game unless you travel to each and every world to manually check for a quest. Once you're in the right world you then need to hunt down the NPC who gave you the quest, because there is no indication to tell you where to go. The game is downright boring in solo, but it has a terrible multiplayer setup. The Universe map is linked to a player's character, so if you join someone else's multiplayer game, the only progress you will retain is your character's level and current inventory. Any portals you open in another player's Universe will not transfer back to your character's Universe. This means if you start a game with friends, you will never be able to play solo without them unless you want to restart the exploration process. This game desperately needs a way to setup a dedicated server, otherwise the multiplayer likely won't survive. Mechanically, I think the game is okay. This game may actually be redeemable if the developers decide to add any meaningful content. At a minimum, the following must be addressed: * There are not enough boss fights. * There are not enough enemy varieties (though I am thankful to see that while enemies are repeated, they do at least have different strengths/weaknesses in each world.) * There are not enough quest-granting NPCs. * There are too many crafting quests (those that just require you to build a weapon and give it to the NPC). * Active quests need to be visible from the Universe map, not just within the world that has the quest. * There are not enough merchant NPCs. * Merchants and coins are useless (the few Merchants I encounter never have anything I want to buy). * Inventory size needs to be expandable.
What a lovely creation Portal Knights is. As an RPG of course it has a few classes to choose from: Warrior, Ranger and Mage, abilities of whose are of course customisable. Combat is easy to get used to and is pretty fun. Various fun quests; some can be more challenging and take some time, some are very easy and fast to finish. Sandbox aspects are also great. There are many resources and recipes to gather throughout the progress and discovery of different worlds, dungeons and bosses. Building is also pretty fun since all building blocks and furniture are looking very good. It also has multiple types of pets and vanity items. The game is a bit grindy, but what game would it be without a little challenge? Challenge only makes the things more fun, especially when it's rewarding. Visuals are simply adorable and beautiful. Worlds have multiple types, each of them has it's unique appearance, various different enemies and resources as well as dungeons with more rewards and challenges. Music is very relaxing. Probably one of the best ones I've encountered in sandbox games. In general the game runs smoothly and brings a lot of enjoyment, especially on co-op. Highly recommend it to those, who likes Sandbox and RPG games, enjoys teamwork and a bit of challenge.
I think this would be a good game for all minecraft fans!
