As I said last week, this was a free PS+ game. While I had stopped downloading every single free PS+ game just because they were free, I genuinely thought that I would enjoy this game and enjoy it enough that I would finish it completely. How hard could it be right? Apparently very because I never finished it. Keep reading to find out why.
Knytt Underground is about…to tell you the truth I have no idea. This was one of those games where I had to do some research just to tell you what this game is actually about so here it goes. In Knytt Underground you play as a sprite called Mi Sprocket. Mi has lost the ability to speak accurately so everyone misunderstands her and she’s recruited, unwillingly, into a mission in order to save the world. In order to save the world, Mi has to ring the six bells of fate which you have to find throughout this puzzle 2d side scrolling type game.
So yeah, I was completely clueless to this game and actually tried to replay this game a few times after getting lost over and over again, but it just didn’t happen. I had no idea what was going on and I just couldn’t keep up which made me feel completely stupid. How dare a game do that! So I just tossed it to the side. I keep it on my PS3 though because when you scroll over it, the games gives this pretty image and this relaxing little sound. The game reminds me of Fez, which I did complete and actually wrote a review for. You can read that review here, but I have to give the disclaimer that it’s a horrible review. Horrible. Anyway, this game is like that. While playing you really have no idea what you’re doing or why you’re supposed to be doing it. So after numerous times of trying to play, I just gave up.
As you can see from the picture above I got a big fat 0 in the trophy department. It’s really nothing to be ashamed of though because if you look at the actual trophy list and see what each trophy ranges as, they range from very rare to ultra-rare. That’s for the whole list. There is not one common trophy, uncommon trophy, or even rare trophy on there. This doesn’t make me too angry, but I still hate having that stain on my profile.
Probability of this game getting played again…4 out of 5.
So why rate this game so high if I’m not ashamed of the 0 trophies or don’t really care for the game? Because I just want to finish it. It’s one of those games where I want to find a walkthrough, spend a day playing, get all of the trophies, and be done with it. I just don’t want it on my list anymore and I want to be able to take it off my system even though it has that relaxing background and sound. It’s one of those games that keeps picking at the back of my mind telling me that I could play and finish it.
Now it’s your turn. Love this game? Hate this game? Get any trophies at all or actually finish this game? If you did I applaud you and please brag about it down in the comments section below. For next week, another game that was recommended by my “friend.” Why did I keep listening to her? Anyway, it’s a few more weeks before our big blow up and the last time you’ll ever hear about her because we stopped being friends. Anyway, that’s not happening next week, next week I’ll just tell you how I was convinced to play a game I never wanted to play and ended up never finishing it. For next week I’ll tell you why I never finished Batman: Arkham City.
