Clockwork Knight is a first-generation game and it shows. It tries to show off a little too much with lots of 3-D effects and polygons galore. The video is rather boring, and the quest itself seems pretty relaxed. The Bosses, while big, aren't animated all that well. The colors are bright, and most of your opponents look cool. Knight's control could have been tweaked a bit, but it plays okay. It's an average game, but I do recommend picking this one up--give it a chance.
Welcome to round one of Sega Saturn games. Clockwork Knight must have been in development as the Sega Saturn was being developed because it seems everything the Sega Saturn can do is in this game. The 3-D perspective is practically shoved down your throat: There are enough colors here to blind you for life and the control could use some tightening. The game gets repetitive almost immediately, but at least there are some secret areas to check.
Clockwork Knight tries too hard to impress with all the Sega Saturn's new capabilities. It almost worked, except that there were a few things that could have made that game better. For one thing, it would be logical to have your character move into different scrolling planes like the enemies and backgrounds. Another is better control, especially the jumping, which was difficult at times. Outside of that, it's an okay action game.. But stay away from the music. Eeeww!
At first glance it looks very impressive, but the problem is you can't actually go into the other fields. The 3-D perspective is sort of wasted because of this limitation. The graphics are good, and it has a very new and clean rendered look. The game play is sort of Mario-like, but it jumps and controls a bit sloppily. It's full of eye-catching effects and plays more to the eyes than the hands. Overall, it's a good game with some cool graphics that try to show off the system's stuff.
