Summary: This is a fun game; you play Alara a sword wielding warrior girl who goes through a portal looking for treasure and finds lots of trouble instead. your attacks are standard x button y button but the b button is a special attack that you earn as you go through the game. b + y,x,a each do a different power move; fire, ice and electric.
Summary: A few years ago I played the demo to X-Blades (the precursor to Blades of Time) and thought it was a nice looking game but it didn't seem to have much of a story (I still might go back and try the full game someday). I just picked up Blades of Time last week and am only about 5-6 hours into the game, but I must say, it has been really fun! The graphics are well done, the story is interesting enough.
