Knight Squad 2 (Series) Review
Posted: 7 weeks ago, last updated 5 weeks ago.
Viewed from above, you control the movement and action of your character through 13 different game modes, each offering a different set of objectives: capture the flag, hunt for souls, race around a track or coating the arena in the colour of your character.
You compete with other players for points, and can play dirty by attacking them and getting in their way. You can pickup a range of upgradeable weapons to give you the edge and help you claim the victory crown.
The hectic, chaotic game modes, paired with lighthearted action and the ability to play with others, be they experts or novices, make it a great choice for friends and family game nights.
Players: You can play with 8 players in the same room and up to 8 players online. Although you can play against AI, the game is designed mainly for local and online multiplayer, where you can have fun with friends and family. The game supports crossplay, meaning different people don't need the same console/platform to play with each other. You can play in free-for-all matches, or create teams of twos or fours if players want extra support.
You can play up to 8 players in the same place on Switch and Xbox, but only 4 on PC.
Skill Rating8-12 year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game.

While most of the text is clear, not all of it is big and some blends into the background, making it difficult to see and read.
Each knight has its own distinct colour that can't be changed, so being able to discern between these colours is essential to the game, which is of particular importance to colourblind players.
As the game is only played from a top-down perspective, it is easy to see where important locations are relative to you, and navigating through the arena is also relatively straightforward. It can be, however, difficult to keep track of your knight, especially if lots of players are near each other, or if the game mode is particularly hectic and fast-paced.
