Summary: Great fun game a little like Dynasty Warriors but without the hack and slash and more strategy involved. Controls can be difficult at first but easy to master. Definately ordering from amazon again.
Summary: Overview: Another great game from KOEI. You are a mercenary fighting in the Hundred Years War, you can pick either to fight for the English or the French(with each of their own story plots). Along the way you meet fellow mercenaries and historical figures such as Joan of Arc. The combat is fantastic, its like a complex rock-paper-scisors, different classes beat others. You command groups of soldiers of 5 to 30 soldiers and lead them against the enemy.
Summary: It's often been said that Koei does the same thing over and over, and that they need something new. Here Koei tried something very new: instead of the one-man-army of the Musou series, you play a mercenary commander who tips the scales of war in a tactical action game. Bladestorm received some bad press, but I think the reason was that people saw 'Koei' and thought 'Dynasty Warriors'.
Repetitive? Yes. However, if you like strategy games, you'll want to play this

Summary: From a critic point of view, this game would get 5 out of 10 stars. The game is very repetitive, if you played 1 week, the rest of the game is about the same. But hey, I'm not a critic, yes, it's repetitive, but playing something I love again and again is perfectly fine. It feels great to be in control of an army, the graphics are decent, sound is decent, nothing spetacular, but if you like war games, you have to play it.
Summary: good story line good grapics for ps3 a little more complicated then dynasty warriors or samurai warriors koei games made the user have more control over their little army vs the asian way where it relates to individuals

Summary: This review was written by my son, James Shea. Koei is famous for games that take liberties with historical events (see also the Dynasty Warriors and Kessen games), and now they've turned their attention to the Hundred Years War. Despite the questionable accuracy of the history involved, Bladestorm is nonetheless a fun, solid game that introduces a lot of unique game mechanics different than any of Koei's other games.
Summary: If you like the dynasty warriors series then you will probably like bladestorm too, if you stick with it long enough to get the controls. It is similar to a DW type game in many ways but is definitely not the same. In this one, you control and fight as a whole squad instead of one hero. You can change squads in the middle of a battle whenever you want. This game has a good leveling system and if you want to max all the different squads it is going to take a long time.
Summary: I read a some bad reviews on here but was not put off. I am very glad I bought this game, it is a lot of fun. If your'e into big epic battles then buy this game! Defiantly worth getting, especially for such a cheap price.
