Summary: Not much I can say that others didn't but I love this game. It's a really addictive and long game with a lot of nostalgia for me since I played it non stop when it came out. It has a massive amount of weapon and soldier types as well as armor. But the biggest thing about this is the sense of being in a army as opposed to stuff like dynasty warriors where you feel ( or actually ARE ) a god amongst men in blade storm your practically useless without a group because of the...
Summary: This game can last for an EXTREMELY long time. It's like the entire map (England and France) is engaged at the same time. The game can get boring if you manage to level up quickly in the beginning, but if not then can be challenging, but if you don't play your cards right (where to spend earnings, hiring mercenaries, etc) you can end up in an impossible match with no future to look forward to in the game
Summary: When I bought this game not too long ago, I was kind of expecting your typical hack and slash one man army game. This game was not like that. I mean sure, you could probably run around like mad and keep trying to heal yourself but it's better to use units (a good plus in my rating for realism).
Summary: It's a pretty awesome game. The thing i like the most is that you level up a certain type of army. For instance my halbreds level is 89. I also like the side missions because if your tired of just taking over casltes you can do other side missions. The graphics are kinda poor but i like it. The sound is pretty realistic.
Summary: Before I bought Bladestorm I heard about it from my girlfriend who is big Joan of Arc fan. I was unsure if I wanted it or not but eventually I bought it. Bladestorm really surprised me, I admit I thought it was going to be a flop but I was certainly wrong. The game is pretty challenging at times. So battles are really easy, some really hard, and some are balanced. It all depends on which missions you decide to take which have difficulty ratings.
Summary: After playing the demo before the game release I finally got the whole game. As someone who is not a huge fan of Dynasty Warrior type games this game was o.k. The voice acting on the other hand is horrible and if your planning on learning European history from a game do not use this one has your tool.
Summary: This game expands greatly to the popular medieval "Run, kill, upgrade, repeat" design. What I particularly enjoy about this game is that it's not Dynasty or Samurai Warriors. It doesn't glorify every single battle by adding a major plot character to fight against. Not everybody is important. In pretty much every other game like this, every single playable character is a general or high ranking, powerful officer from the very beginning.
