Features
From Haemimont Games, The First Templar is a co-operative action adventure game in development for Xbox 360 and PC. The game portrays a dark and gritty view of the late 13th century where old friends become enemies, corruption spreads throughout the Church and fallen knights oppress the weak and renounce their oaths. The First Templar follows the story of two main characters - a French Templar, and his companion, a noble lady who has been proclaimed a heretic. Taking control over these two unlikely allies, the player must uncover the mysteries behind the Templar Order, play a role in a grand conspiracy, and discover the secret of the Holy Grail. The heroes face powerful opponents at every turn, in the face of the Saracen, King Philip IV of France and the Inquisition. The game also features both single player and co-op modes. When playing solo, the player can switch between the two characters, leaving the control of the second hero to the game's AI. At any moment a second player can joinin and take control of the AI controlled hero.

Features

Fast-paced cooperative play: players can assist one another as each takes on the role of the game's key characters. Drop-in/out cooperative gameplay lets the AI take over when one player leaves the game

Single player- two characters: Play as either character, switching roles as you go to use the best skills for the job.

RPG inspired character development: each has their own skills and skill paths, which the player can develop as they complete missions and explore the game world

Rich, historical game-world: return to the 13th century, where European culture is on the brink of collapse. 20 historically accurate locations have been recreated for the player to explore.

2 out of 5 eggsMy First Templar

Pros: Budget title

despite numerous short comings and flaws, the actual game itself isn't too bad.

Cons: The knights templar were a religious order that swore an oath of poverty, and this game feels like it swore to that oath too since it looks and feels like it literally had no budget put into it.

The game play is simple and reptetitive. The graphics are crude. There are a lot of obivous bugs in the game still (none of them gamebreaking thankfully).

Some stages have music that abruptly cuts out every 30 or so seconds after it starts.

Other Thoughts: MFT is fascinating for the wrong reasons. Its edutainment featuring historical accounts on the templars and the times they lived in. It can't escape connections to Assassin's Creed due to it.

The Templars were founded in France to be free bodyguards for pilgrims, got into banking because carrying wealth made the pilgrims targets, began lending money, and were betrayed by king Philip of France who had run up enormous debts with them. King Philip assassinated their reputation before ordering their deaths. This is how Friday the 13th is a bad luck day.

Assassin's Creed is creepy in that Ubisoft is a French company that was in the tank financially until they saved themselves by bashing and murdering templars (in a virtual sense, not literally)

This game tho, the story is similar to Assassin's Creed 1. Makes me think that AC's premise is completely reversed. Assassins in the crusades were drug addicts & Desmond is persecuted by a 'templar' owned drug company messing with his min
