  • Excerpt: Even a mediocre hack-and-slash can have a good idea. In this spiritual successor to the action-adventure X-Blades ( OXM rating: 4.0) — which also starred a barely dressed, gun-blade–toting heroine named Ayumi — you’re stranded on a mysterious island filled with treasure, magic, and strange monsters...
  • Pros: + The ability to rewind time and create time clones is awesome., + An overall average game with a couple of good ideas.
  • Cons: ? Couldn’t they have come up with a more original name for the world than “Dragonland”?

  • Excerpt: Admittedly I'm a bit of a simpleton. You may have heard somewhere that video game "critics" are constantly searching for the next big release. A game that is not only epic but also thought-provoking, it would be so incredible that these writers could hold it above their heads and shout to the world,...

Expert Review

  • 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.
  • Pros: Intriguing and well-integrated time-manipulation mechanic, Interesting puzzles, Graceful movement leads to satisfying combat, Good environmental variety, Vast assortment of enemy types
  • Cons: Unreliable controls, Wielding a gun removes the joy of movement, Forgettable multiplayer

Blades of Time PC Review

  • Excerpt: If you have a good memory, you might remember a mediocre hack and slash game that went by the name of X-Blades ( review here ) that came out in 2009 for both the PS3 and Xbox 360 . The game wasn’t any good as it suffered from bad repetition in gameplay, location designs and combat.

  • Conclusion: There's not a really punch line for that - sorry for getting your hopes up - but Blades of Time attempts to meld so many different strands and elements into it's story that at some point you expect one to appear.
  • Pros: + Fascinating combat + Massively varied levels + Accidentally hilarious one-liners.
  • Cons: - Execution doesn't match ambition - Story lacks cohesion - Voiceovers will haunt you

  • Summary: Blades Of Time draait om het terugspoelen van de tijd die in de gameplay prima verwerkt zit. Voor uitmuntende verhaallijnen, geweldig geluid en diep doordachte overige gameplay-elementen moet je niet bij deze game zijn. Let wel, het is niet allemaal kommer en kwel met Blades Of Time.
  • Pros: Battle-systeem biedt veel potentie, Time-rewind is een toffe troef om mee te experimenteren, Speelt makkelijk weg, Interessant voor Trophy Hunters
  • Cons: Ongeloofwaardig verhaal, Matige belichting en geluidseffecten, Met aanwezige ideeën had veel meer gekund, Online multiplayer voelt overbodig, Relatief korte speelduur
