SUMMARY: SEVERANCE BLADE OF DARKNESS S ONE PF THE BEST SWORD FIGHTING GAMES I VE PLAYED.GREAT CHARACTERS WITH PLENTY OF WEAPONS AND TO MASTER THEIR MOVES WAS REALLY FU.GREAT GRAPHICS TOO.I WISH THERE COULD BE PART 2 OF THIS GAME. This is one of the hottest games I have played this whole year - superb graphics and a soundtrack by NIN make this a great action romp. Some other users have diss'd the game cuz they say it's too short, or it doesn't have enough weapons.... forget what they say, cuz the game is freaking HARD, and the weapons that you have access to require some serious skill to really master, so all in all the game is tuff to beat, and not at all suitable for pansies. Two thumbs way up! This is one of the hottest games I have played this whole year - superb graphics and a soundtrack by NIN make this a great action romp.
This game rules, its got the best combat i have ever seen, really good graphics, 4 people you can play as all with there own way of combat.
I just picked this up for £5.99 and it rules. i have a pretty basic p.c (64.mb ram thunderbird graphic card) and it still runs great. I love this game . Give it a try.
You can chop an orcs head off pick it up and beat another orc to death with it. You can also smash nearly anthing you can see including tables, chairs, box's and planks of wood. The only bad thing about this game is are the Puzzles, They never get anything above flipping a swich and then finding a key. Still good though.
THE GOOD: superb graphics puts tomb radier game to shame.solid sound if u have 4 or 6 speakers u will have blast of it.lots and lots of weapons to collect.cool RPG elements. Immersive atmosphere.
THE BAD: controls are not bad but akward and slugish.bad multiplayer support.not stable enough.
SUMMARY: An excellent game by codemasters and rebel acts.after the super hit brain lara 99 codemaster brings blade of darkness excellent but super hit unfournately.
GAME:blade of darkness is our basic action/adventure game. the aged knight, the skilled lance-wielding amazon treasure seeker, the brawny barbarian or the ornery dwarf are four characters to choose from.each one has a different adventure and path to take in order to stop the darkness.
STORY: A great darkness is returning to the land complete with fiendish creatures and towering monsters and it's up to you to stop it.
GAMEPLAY:In the beginning, your mobility really sucks. But characters will increase their number of attack combos and stats (hi...
THE GOOD: Very good graphics cool mutilations, and excellent shadows, weopens are nice and varied
THE BAD: fighting system a little awkward no difficulty level adjuster a bit repetitive, foes not varied enough
SUMMARY: This is a good game, a buy for any roleplayer beutiful shadows and pretty weopens make heads roll,honestly its just a little too hard at first before you get used too the fighting system but all in all i like it but its no ultima 9
THE GOOD: Awesome graphics, great gameplay, good storyline
THE BAD: A little repetitive, some movement glitches
SUMMARY: This is a great game. It does take a little while to get used to, but if you have the patience you will not be sorry. The gameplay is superb and very addicting. The graphics are amazing and this is definitely the most graphic game I have ever played.
THE GOOD: The graphics are ok, though nothing to write home about.
THE BAD: Boring levels and boring enemies. Way long load and save times.
SUMMARY: I guess that I did not like this game very much. The fighting seems clumsy and slow. Some of the advanced moves are pretty cool, but the "lock-on" mode takes some getting use to (I never did). I prefer the ability to slide side to side and make running attacks where you break off at the last moment.
The game did not hold my interest long enough to make me want to finish it. There are four characters to choose from, but they all fight pretty much the same. IMHO, even Rune is better than this stinker. If you are into sword fighting games, you might be better off checking the discount bins for a copy of Draken or Vampire Masquerade.
THE GOOD: Intense exquisite graphics, realisitic surround sound, impeccable AI, and thought provoking quests and battles.
THE BAD: Incredibly long loading and reloading time, slightly buggy at times, finger numbing fight process.
SUMMARY: A truly well visualized game, and a masterpiece of gory battle and blood baths. The realism is extremely well produced on the screen, as well through the speakers.
Most of the environments are truly awe inspiring, and rendered down to the finest detail, even the realistic shadows change when you approach or pass a light source. Blood splatters, limbs fly, and blood spouts in torrents from gaping wounds during battles. You even take on realistic damage based upon the area on the character that gets hit. Just be careful not to get an arrow in the face!!!
The surround sound is extremely well executed. Personally, I wear headphones during the game so I can sense out proximaties of enemies. You can actually hear them walk around you, behind doors, ...
THE GOOD: best graghics around. excellent combat system. good ai
THE BAD: sometimes get stuck. no quicksave
SUMMARY: could be like a porsche, with constant honing and finessing, could be the best new classic in its, genre which I am not sure exactly what that is- rpg?-3rd person shooter adventure, I think abit of all.
THE BAD: A little bit dull, with an option for clear and sunny spells ahead.
SUMMARY: An extremely gorgeous looking game, witness torchlight cast realistic shadows in relation to your character, and use your particular fantasy warrior to slay the evil beasts he/she encounters.
Although I haven't given this a full playtest the first few levels seem fairly average at first, but they should hopefully get a damn sight better later on.
It is a game that you will come back to though. With four different characters, a large variety of weapons, special attacks which increase as your experience level is raised and multiplayer support it'll last and last.
By the way, it's gory as hell, if you cut off a creatures arm, you can pick it up and batter his mate with it...but don't let that put you off.
