Blade of Darkness

Game Over Online
24 February 2015
  • Excerpt: Oh the anti-violence crowd is going to have a field day with Blade of Darkness. The hoopla surrounding Codemasters and Rebel Act Studios’ latest creation revolves around the excessive and arguably gratuitous use of violence.

Severance: Blade of Darkness

  • Excerpt: I was really looking forward to playing Blade of Darkness, and after playing more than 2 weeks with the game I can only say 1 thing : “Wow!” Although it IS in a 3rd person perspective, there are few role playing elements to be found.

  • Excerpt: I like to play games with turn-based combat. There’s a team of player-controlled characters against a team of computer-controlled characters. Aaah, good old fashioned chess-like strategy.

  • Summary: Blade of Darkness delivers a competent display of melee combat. ed with stupendous graphics and a capable combat model, the shortcomings in sound and some features (strafing, for instance) make Blade of Darkness a good, but not great, title.

Severance: Blade of Darkness

Gameguru Mania
28 February 2003
  • Excerpt: Severance: Blade of Darkness is a third-person action game that puts a strong emphasis on violence, blood and gore. For an example, you can hack off creature's arms or legs and then pick them up and wield them as weapons :) Pretty cool isn't it?

  • Excerpt: Fast, intense, and complex melee combat is not something we run across all of the time in the Action genre. Until now, Die by the Sword, Drakan, and Rune were part of only a very few choices for the sword-wielding enthusiast.

Severance : Blade of Darkness Review

Eurogamer
22 February 2001
  • Conclusion: Severance is not a role-playing game. It is not a game suitable for the young or impressionable.
