Cyber Knight is a really interesting game. It kinda fools you into thinking it’s a sci-fi/mecha RPG with the traditional 8/16-bit RPG engine. Hell, looking at the screenshots of the overworld, you might be inclined to think it uses a similar engine to Phantasy Star 2. But that’s just the overworld. Once you get into a battle, it’s definitely a strategic game. The battles are waged on a 6×6 grid. Your fighters have missile and melee attacks, and essentially you move your men about and attack in a manner that doesn’t wind up with your mechas getting obliterated. The battles are more involved than your standard RPG fare, and resultedly are a little slow-paced. So those of you who like Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior–where you can fly through a battle by hitting the accept button repeatedly–might not like this. The graphics are a bit dated, even for 1993. The sound is rather nice, however. And the game play is decent. So, if you have a grain or two of patience, this game will make for an enjoyable experience.
Cyber Knight is a nifty little RPG for the SNES by Group SNE and Tonkinhouse. It’s a very different game and is probably not quite what you’d expect from an “RPG.” Combat is more strategic than most battle systems as you have freedom of movement, the method of boosting your mechs’ strength is not what you’d expect from an RPG either. and there are a _LOT_ of planets you can visit. All in all it’s a very neat game!
Everything except the first two screens (basically just credits) are done.

Hey, this was a great game!Reviewed By: AnTi90d on 28 Feb 2010
This game was great! The translation was clean and easy to read, I experienced no bugs or glitches and there was even a bit of humor written in. Its an RPG thats set in a futuristic world. There is no money (you get item drops from mechanized enemies that you take back to your ship and analyze for new weapons and upgrades to your mechs,) you have infinite ammo (all you have to do is go back to your ship and everything is filled to the max,) and the battle system is kind of like a strategy game. If something runs up right next to you, you can’t use any ranged weapons. Make sure you check your armament and take a wide variety of weapon types with you. I was using all impact weapons and landed on a planet where they were practically immune to that damage type.. and promptly had my rear end handed to me. I would suggest the liberal use of savestates while in an enemy stronghold.. When you stumble upon the boss it can mean lights out in one battle phase.. The bosses can one shot your guys. Its quite unfair, but very fun. You will probably be very confused and lost without a guide for this one. I recommend the guide at Gamefaqs. (Because of this game, I now have a newfound hatred for dinosaurs.. They have too many HP!.. and biological lifeforms don’t drop upgrade items!..) It took me 12 hours and 51 minutes to beat this game.. with the guide.. Without I would have just wandered the universe aimlessly for hours. The game doesn’t give you much direction.. Without the guide you would have no clue where to go. The story was great and the ending was kind of cool. I think that everyone that is a fan of old RPGs would love this game. Now I’m off to play Cyber Knight 2!~
