4.0 out of 5 stars My expectations were met May 17, 2011
By Cam
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I knew when i bought this game it was somewhat of a low-budget release so i was not expecting to be blown away and knew what i was getting into. I love the hack-n-slash genre so i can be pretty forgiving on the flaws as long as i can slice stuff up, and this game provides that in spades. The story in the game is surprisingly good which revolves around templars, religion in medevial europe. The voice-acting is decent and the graphics are passable(though they look like it could have been on ps2)

It's a little more then an hack and slash though, it also features rpg-like elements(another genre i love) and you can customize all 3 charatcers with different outfits and weapons you can find, spend skill points to increase health, combo, magic(or zeal) and special abilites, so you could have a damage dealer. tank character and even healing abilites. The game also has co-op play and also can be used on-line so you can play right along a friend or family meter and it does a good job with it and encourages teamwork on both puzzles and action sequences.

Alot of ppl seemed to dismiss this game for an assassin creed rip-off but owning all the current AC games and now this game, i can assure you that aside from the time period the two are really nothing at all alike. IMHO if you like hack and slash, a little role playing elements, puzzle and action, co-op and a decent story to go along with it i think this is worth a purcahse especially since it's not even a full-priced game. Just go into first templar without expecting a big AA game and i think it's a fun purchase. The only reason i did not give it 5 stars was because i did run into a bug or two but nothing major.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ok, so I rounded up May 22, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
4.5 stars for this game, and I do not feel like I am reaching here. Talk about out of nowhere surprises. Released the same day as LA Noire and all it's fanfare, this title was easy to ignore. I picked it up at midnight at the same time as Noire and since I have finished La Noire ( another title worth checking out for sure) I am hooked on this game. A quick rundown on pros cons.

Pros: story is awesome, 100% coop...meaning all chapters you can drop in drop out, rpg customization that actually affects gameplay, deep 20 chapter level story, lots of bonus objectives on each level, some tomb raider esque puzzle solving, tight controls and fighting mechanics are pretty good.

Cons: graphics are not a plus, I would compare it to say Sacred 2, coop gameplay only saves progress for host....not cool after you have ridden shotgun and completed 12 levels only to realize when you launch your own game you must start over, checkpoint system not perfect.

You can clearly see pros far outweigh cons. If you are concerned about not finding people to play with do not worry, there is at least 10 games open to join at any hour of the day....a few overseas, a few in Canada and in the US. Do yourself a favor, pick up this very ambitious title from what I assume is a very small developer and reward them and yourselves for this great title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Designed "Budget" Game July 27, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
THE FIRST TEMPLAR is a historical hack 'n slash that a lot of folks think is "old school", but which I think is in the best sense of the word. Despite its obviously lower budget than most major games, it's well designed, mixing up levels so that the action (which is a solid 10-12 hours) never becomes too repetitive, while offering a fun story that's never too serious or silly.

In fact, playing this game makes me wonder what the developers would've done with a larger budget. Despite its occasional technical glitch and meandering camera, this is fun -- not frustrating -- and well worth the purchase under $30.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleeper hit title, worth the purchase & try! August 19, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was always on my radar, but I was very hesitant since it didn't receive any type of hype or coverage from the main stream gaming media. I read the reviews here on amazon from the users who bought & played through it & since they were mostly positive I figure for the price why not.

I am a big fan of the medieval era, so that along w/ the price made it a easy purchase.

It has role playing elements such as being able to do side quests, aside from the main quest, gaining pts that you can use to level up your characters.

The game overall was enjoyable, graphics are very nice, different scenery was a nice change of pace. My only 2 complaints were the A.I. of your partner, which in certain instances held you back from completing certain objectives to advance to next level. It was more glaring on the hardest difficulty setting, but not much in the easy settings.

The other complaint was trying to go back to certain levels to gain achievements that I originally missed during my 1st play-through. You can select the level but you can't select particular save points in each level, so you're forced to play the selected level from the beginning.

A cool feature which I wish more games supported was the co-op in the campaign. You can invite a buddy or any XBL player to join your campaign online & you both can play through the campaign.

This game also has 1 new add-on for the campaign called "The Arena" while on the short side offers up a nice little play through & new achievements to gain. The story of this add-on is you have been captured by the Byzantium Emperor & thrown into the arena to fight for your life. There are a couple side quests, was enjoyable.

The price has dropped even more since my purchase & I highly recommend it. Hope this has helped. Take care & GOD Bless!
