Blades of Time

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: You've got to give Gaijin Entertainment some credit. The Russian studio has no reputation for creating good games, and 2009's X-Blades was particularly mediocre. Despite this, Gaijin just keeps on plugging and is even prepared to revisit its prior failures, giving the world a spiritual successor to X-Blades in the form of Blades of Time . It's amazing how much faith Gaijin has in the series' barely clothed heroine, Ayumi, because Konami certainly has none.

Don't Overlook Blades of Time

  • Excerpt: I remember standing in the Marietta, Ohio Gamestop looking for a game to preorder. One title kind of caught my eye. Some game named Blades of Time. I asked my friend Dustin, who is the manager, what all he's heard about it. After getting on the computer he had a confused look on his face. According to him there, was nothing on the game. With that great sales pitch, I preordered it, and it just came out (it was slated for February).

Blades of Time Review

  • Summary: Blades of Time is a mediocre game, with an inventive combat system utilizing time manipulation. Dreadful writing and one of the most annoying protagonists in a dog's age dampen its charms, while the puzzles between combat show a dearth of creativity.
  • Pros: Novel time mechanics, Polished combat system, Looks nice for a budget title
  • Cons: Irritating protagonist that won't shut up, Performance issues, Lazy puzzles, Slapdash multiplayer

  • Excerpt: Blades of Time is not a reboot of the Prince of Persia franchise – sorry folks. Neither is it a game about figure-skating – tough luck there. It is, however, a tomb-looting, gunsword-slinging, spiritual successor to X-Blades.

  • Excerpt: Makers of racing games, action games, and flight sims, Gaijin Games’ releases have been hit or miss over the years. 2009’s X-Blades is an example of good intentions gone horribly wrong, but the developer is taking another crack at the “hot chick with a sword” concept with Blades of Time, a spiritual successor to X-Blades.

Blades of Time – Test/Review

insidegames.ch
21 December 2012
  • Summary: Bereits in X-Blades konnte man die leichtbekleidete Amazone Ayumi auf ihren Schatzjäger -Abenteuern begleiten, allerdings hatte der Titel damals nur mäßigen Erfolg, viele klagten über öde Gegner, langweilige Umgebungen und mäßige Optik. Ob mit dem neusten Ableger Blades of Time nun alles besser wird und die Entwickler aus ihren Fehlern gelernt haben, erfahrt ihr hier in unserem Test.
  • Pros: einfallsreiche Endbosse, viele Kämpfe, recht viele verschiedene Gegner, Zeitsprung, solides, spaßiges Kampfsystem
  • Cons: hölzerne & unnatürliche Animationen, Synchronisation, zu Anfang nervige naive Sprüche, Sprache & Animation völlig asynchron

  • Excerpt: Seit dem 13.03.2012 dürfen wir wieder mit der sexy Ayumi auf Schatzsuche gehen. Beim zweiten Teil mit dem Titel Blades of Time hat Gaijin Entertainment einige Neuerungen eingebracht. Ob diese das eher enttäuschende X-Blades vergessen machen, könnt ihr aus unserem folgendem Testbericht entnehmen.

  • Summary: "Mit der Liebe ist es ja schon so eine Sache - wenn es einen mal so richtig erwischt hat, ist man auch bereit über die eine oder andere Macke seiner Traumfrau hinwegzusehen, stimmts? Immerhin dürfen wir im Falle von "Blades of time" ja noch Hoffnung haben, dass sich etwas tut. Ein Patch wäre schön und würde ein starkes Spiel noch besser machen.
