  • Excerpt: A couple years ago, a game simply called Project Exile for the GBA caught gamers' attention. After a console change and a new name, Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled is now about to be released for the Nintendo DS. I had the chance to visit Studio Archcraft and play its first RPG a few days ago.

  • Conclusion: Black Sigil is a game made to deliberately give an old school experience. However, that experience is mired in tedium, never-ending combat, a story which is both mediocre and convoluted, and several huge glitches. If that can't dissuade you from buying the game, then maybe you'll enjoy it. Maybe...

  • Excerpt: Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled is a new RPG that many people having been waiting to come out for quite a long time! It was first announced well over a year ago (more like a year and a half, I think) and since then, people have been wondering when it would really be released. I'm quite glad that they have finally found a publisher, so it is now available for sale since it is a wonderful new RPG! The graphics in Black Sigil are quite well done.

Black Sigil : Blade of the Exiled

  • Excerpt: Studio Archcraft, the first time developer behind the new Nintendo DS RPG Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled, deserves nothing less than an A for effort. A large scale RPG like this one is a mammoth task to undertake, and for a brand new developer, what they've accomplished here is nothing short of outstanding.

  • Conclusion: For all the time Black Sigil spent in development, it’s disappointing to see such a ho-hum experience unveiled. Make no mistake – it’s not broken. The combat works, for the most part, and there’s a story worth experiencing, if you don’t mind unearthing it out from under a seemingly endless stream of random battles.

  • Excerpt: There is a strong neo-retro trend in gaming these days, and independent RPG developers have been ahead of that curve for a long time now. There is a strong desire to recapture those warm fuzzy feelings of rose-colored nostalgia that gamers around my age felt back when we were tweens or teens playing Final Fantasy IV-VI on the SNES or Phantasy Star II-IV on the Genesis.

Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled

  • Excerpt: “Good things come to those who wait.” It’s a saying that is, in the world of video games, often false. Three years ago, a game known only as Project Exile caught some gamers’ eyes with its “old school” graphics. The game came out after an absurd amount of delays. Not only that, but Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled starts of fairly slowly.
