Second game - Silver Knights (4180 KB)

Silver Knights is a fun 3D mech game that is too good to be ignored. It is a Japanese game, though the language in the game is English. Right now, there is only a Battle Mode, where you can play three different game types. There is a story mode planned, as well, but don't expect it to surface for a few months. The game gets updated every now and then, so check back to the website every couple of weeks for updates.

The graphics in Silver Knights are wonderful. The mechs look cool and are done in Japanese style. The game is all in 3D and the special effects and explosions look great. It looks and plays like a newer PS1 game, which is quite a feat for a freeware game. There's never a hint of slowdown, but I found the camera angle to be slightly annoying. It jerks around a bit too much for my liking. The many levels in Silver Knights are done beautifully, and each plays very well. Though some levels were a bit boring in previous versions of SK, the levels in the latest version are all very enjoyable.
The controls in the game are a bit aggravating, but can be changed in the options menu. Still, locking onto an enemy remains a bit frustrating. On the other hand, the gameplay is simply excellent. You choose one of several mechs, decide which team you'll be on, and battle it out in one of a dozen arenas. You have 3 projectile attacks, and many hand-to-hand combos are possible, as well. All of the characters are fairly balanced, and each one has different attacks and capabilities. You can adjust the AI to be as easy or difficult as you want, which adds loads of time to the replay value. Not to mention, with a separate program (downloadable at the author's site), you can give the robots emblems. You can also edit their paint jobs with the main executable.

The music is jazzy and upbeat, and very pleasing to the ears. There are at least five tracks, too, so the music you'll hear while playing SK won't still be in your head throughout the day. It beats the single track of boring piano music of past versions by a mile. The sound is also pretty good, but isn't particularly amazing. Sounds of boosts and gunshots from your mech can be heard, but the clanks and whirrs heard in some other mech games (e.g. Bachan-On) aren't to be found.

Overall, Silver Knights is one of the the best freeware mech games found on the internet. As of now, I'd say it's THE best. No doubt about it. It's still progressing nicely, too.
