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.

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.

Worth Checking Out

  • Summary: I'm glad Koei is experimenting with a few different themes and gameplay formulas. Bladestorm is very unique, using a blend of single and squad-based character control, and a sort of hybrid between realtime strategy and arcade action. Although the control scheme takes a while to get used to and the gameplay can be a bit slow and aimless at times, it can be pretty satisfying storming into a castle with dozens of warriors by your side.

Good time killer, but not much else

  • Summary: While dusting, I came across this on my room mates shelf. Being a fan of omega's games and a fair strategy nut, I popped it in, expecting to slog through a small cities population while barely staining my mail hauberk. However, bladestorm takes an interesting middle ground between the 3-rd person slaughterfest of Dynasty Warriors and the nearly completely hands off approach of Rot3K. Bladestorm puts you in the role of mercenary officer No.

Not bad...

  • Summary: ...but it could have been a lot better. I really wanted to like this game, but so much is stacked against the player that the frustration outweighs the fun. The minimap is horrid. Finding where you are and where you are supposed to be once you are on the battlefield is very difficult. Also, finding more of your troops if you are cut off can be impossible. (Several times, I lost my unit and was unable to find another group to take command of.

Bladestorm a very pleasant surprise

  • Summary: I like this game. Most of the games that I play are of the PC strategy type, i.e. Civilization, Total War etc. I also like RPG's like Morrowind and Oblivion. I see this game as sort of a hybrid of the two types. Bladestorm feels more "light hearted" and just fun. It's totally open ended. You don't have to create units and build castles etc. you just use what's already there. I was very pleased to find that you can go into options and change camera view to inverse.

A fresher Dynasty Warriors style game, but missing Three Kingdoms saga

Xueqin "Kath", Amazon
5 January 2008
  • Summary: Bladestorm is not just Dynasty Warriors in Europe with a attempt to be a hybrid of third person action and real-time strategy, but perhaps it would be better if it was... It looks like Dynasty Warriors and you control a central figure who leads the troops into battle, but from there the two series diverge somewhat. The game focuses on the famous war between England and France, but you'll play a custom-created mercenary who can fight for either side.

Bladestorm Hundred Years War

unknown, Boomerang Video Game Rental Online
29 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Bladestorm is a bizarre fusion of fictional history and real; of accurate unit types but an implausible mix of them. Strategy and gameplay wise we find a similar juxtaposition, between action and over-arching strategy. Sometimes it works, sometimes it frustrates, but on the whole it's an addictive, fun take on the dynasty warriors genre, and well worth playing.

Un bon moment

  • Excerpt: Un excellent jeu pour qui aime le genre Les moins : le début est vraiment vraiment trop facile et parfois un tantinet répétitif. A partir d'une certaine difficulté, le niveau des unités est fondamental. Les troupes montées sont vraiment très supérieures, ne serait ce que pour se déplacer rapidement Les plus : A partir de 6 étoiles, le challenge devient intéressant, et chaque unité à ses nemesis et ses proies.
