Blades of Time

Destructoid

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Summary: The fight was going poorly for Ayumi. Down to her last shred of life against a foe three times her size, she had just one chance to come out alive. So she fell back on her old standby: time manipulation. In a red flash, one Ayumi became three, and her once-living foe entered the realm of the dead. There are situations in Blades of Time when Ayumi's mystical powers come together in such spectacular ways that you can hardly contain your excitement.
  • Pros: N/A

  • Conclusion: Spelets miljö utgörs av den gigantiska ö som du besöker. Du kommer att utforska många olika platser med väldigt varierande miljöer. En glödhet öken, kyligt vinterlandskap, svävande öar och mycket mer. Allt detta hittar du i spelet och en del av bakgrundsmiljöerna erbjuder trevligt ögongodis men när man tar sig en närmare titt är allt inte lika vackert.
  • Pros: • Högt tempo i strider
  • Cons: • Personlighetsklyvning • Dålig kontroll • Lever inte upp till dagens grafik • Lättglömd berättelse

  • Summary: Совершенно не обязательный для ознакомления отечественный экшен. Из плюсов: симпатичная героиня, более-менее разнообразная боевая система и невысокая розничная цена игры. В минусы Blades of Time можно записать все остальное, в том числе коридорный дизайн уровней, бестолковый сюжет и яркие по цветовой палитре, но очень уж пустые декорации.

  • Summary: Reif für die Insel. In Blades of Time verschlägt es Ayumi, ihres Zeichens Protagonistin des Action-Kloppers X-Blades , auf das sagenumwobene Eiland Dragon Land. Bewaffnet mit ihren treuen Doppelklingen muss sich die Schatzjägerin hier allerlei Getiers erwehren und, wer hätte es gedacht, eine legendäre Kostbarkeit heben. Wie es ihr dabei ergeht, erfahrt ihr in unserem Test.
  • Pros: Interessantes Setting, Innovative Zeitsprung-Interpretation, Abwechslungsreiche Level
