Disappointed to say the least

  • Summary: I received this game I had ordered for my brother and it wasn't even attached in the case correctly because it was broken, so therefore the game was scratched. The post said it was "like new" I don't really call that "like new" I'm very disappointed and will not be purchasing another game. Luckily this game still worked because I didn't want to go through this all over again.

The game itself was in good shape but gameplay is only fun for a few hours.

  • Summary: Designing your player is fun but the play control is too straightforward and doesn't change much over time. Worth it to buy cheap if you don't want to be too immersed.

Tons of fun, though a bit repetitive. Penty of options and lots of units!

  • Summary: Bladestorm is a unique strategy game that relies heavily on Koei's signature DW style of gameplay. You play a mercenary who is caught up in a war between the French and the English. You learn to command multiple styles of units (such as sword, spear, horse, elephant) and plenty of substyles (such as sword and shield, sword horsement, dual knives) each. You fight for fame and money which, in turn, makes you a more prominent figure in the war.

please stop overrating this game

  • Summary: I think people have been overrating this game here. This is an average game with very low replay value. The mission objectives are boring. It involves taking over bases over and over again. I have taken enough bases just one hour into game play. Honestly, I've fallen asleep playing this game a couple times. They could've done so much more with the idea of commanding your own troop, but it's way below what I was expecting. Also, it's not worth $50 bucks.

Why was this panned by critics?

  • Summary: Finally something original is made though surpisingly, it comes form KOEI, a company that has developed 6 games called Dynasty Warriors. KOEI innovates on a new concept. You are a mercenary in the Hundred Year War between France and England and must accept contracts from both countries. At the end of each contract, one receives a monetary reward. The whole games revolves around the battles which are the contracts.

Great game, Lacking in a few areas.

  • Summary: Overall the game is really fun. I have very few complaints about it. The main thing is lack of upgrades for the units you take control of. And the other complaint is when the characters have a monologue, It is really super short and they speed talk through everything. Kinda lame but I guess there are a few ups and downs to every game. The controls are simple once you get used to them, but are a bit different.

Not perfect but lots of fun.

  • Summary: Bladestorm is made by Koei, the creators of the Dynasty Warriors series. With that said, there are going to be massive battles in this game. Now if you hated the Dynasty Warriors hack 'n slash don't give up just yet. Bladestorm introduces an element of strategy into the fold. As a commander you do very little fighting on your own in the game, you have units you command and fight for you. The switching of units adds more to the game and allows for some planning.

A must try for the genre

  • Summary: Bladestorm is a great game for anyone who is a fan of mercenary type games or anyone who was a fan of the Samurai/Dynasty Warriors games. The mechanics of the game may throw some people off at first as you cannot go around solo like in most games. You have to take control of a group then lead them into battle.

Wonderful game, really fun to play

  • Summary: I downloaded the demo from x-box live. Found the two campaings really fun, everytime I looked for the game it seemed that no store carried it, eventually I found it on eBay and realized that it was an old game but still kept its price. It is a real entertaining game. Will probably be able to be play it for a long time.
