Portal Knights Nintendo Switch Review

*Product Received by Developer*

Minecraft is a fantastic game, that is something we all know. It has created a new genre of games. But there is something lacking to the base game that it definitely could use. Enter, Portal Knights. With the adorable art-style and complex game mechanics, Portal Knights takes in Minecraft style gameplay and adds fantastic RPG elements that just work.

Portal Knights takes in crafting and mining like base Minecraft and adds fantastic RPG elements. You will be able to mine through caves while also fighting enemies to gain experience to add attribute points to your character. You are able to play as a warrior, archer, or mage. For my playthrough, I chose to be a mage. I am able to cast spells and craft robes for my character as well as give myself attribute points as I level up.

My favorite thing about Portal Knights is the questing. I have never been a fan of mining, so I focused on the story mechanics. I traversed through many portals seeking the boss fights and awesome loot. With adorable LEGO-esque art, Portal Knights is a game you will not want to put down.

Overall, many things in Portal Knights just work. The combat system is flawless and the crafting is advanced yet simple enough to keep your attention. The world that is randomly generated is more traversable than you may think, and the RPG progression system is simple yet complex to give replayability. Portal Knights belongs on everybody’s console. It is one of the most enjoyable games on the Nintendo Switch.

Score: 9.5/10
