So many reviews of this game have been nothing but disparaging. People give it horrid scores due to the fact that it is "repetitive", that the plot is "bad." None of these things are very true, in reality. This is not a bad game. It works like it should, it's fun, and it's a nice way to spend some time and money. "Blades of Time" is a throw-back to a simpler time in games, when playing as a cool protagonist with cool weapons and running through imaginative worlds filled with menacing creatures, all framed within some solid gameplay, was enough to have a good time.

The plot follows Ayumi, a blonde treasure hunter for the mysterious Guild who has no hints of being even remotely Japanese. This organization sends her to a cursed island from which no other hunter has ever returned, all in hopes of gaining an illustrious amount of gold to share with them. There's a reason that no hunter has ever returned from the place, which would be because it's crawling with massive amounts of enemies and traps that utilize unseen types of weapons and magic. With the aid of a fiery dragon goddess who grants her the ability to manipulate time, Ayumi must find her lost partner, Zero, and find the treasure before the island takes her life.

This is a pretty intriguing set-up for the very honest game that "Blades of Time" is. By honest, I mean that the game never tries to pass itself off as something it's not. It never overwhelms the player with tired RPG elements like so many hack-and-slash games nowadays do, nor does it make any attempts to be "edgy" by throwing in language, excess gore or idiotic amounts of fan service. In fact, one of my favorite things about this game is how earnest it really is at heart.

I preordered this game the moment I learned of it's upcoming release a while ago as I was a fan of X-Blades. This game is kinda like a mix of Tomb Raider and Prince of Persia but in a good way. This game received many mediocre to poor reviews that this game does not deserve. If you love old school hack-n-slash all the way up to the newer titles then you'll like this game and have fun with it. My biggest issue with this game is that theytook away the magic system and equipping your abilities to use them whenever you want like you could with X-Blades. Instead, you have to build rage and then cast your spells using a combo system. This game kinda feels like a prequel to X-Blades rather than being a sequel if it is even either at all.

This game is frustrating at times because you have to remember to utilize your time abilities to create additional versions of yourself and keep doing this until all at once, all of your past versions deal enough damage to kill off tough enemies. The graphics to this game are beautiful and definately less cartoonish than X-Blades. The controls are pretty easy to get the hang of and definately better than most newer games. I love how Ayumi jumps around and fights. This game also has a level select to replay the areas to collect whatever you missed and you can also play this game online in specific online levels and objectives. I think if anything, games should mimic the character controls/fighting animations off this game combined with Dragon's Dogma. I really hate that most newer titles still suffer from environment camera angles where as this game only suffers from that sometimes depending on where you are or what you are doing. (I don't like seeing a tree or building on my screen and not being able to see my character.

I really wanted to like Blades of Time...really...It looked on the outside like a weird combination of Tomb Raider and Prince of Persia with a dash of God of War thrown in, but unfortunately this sequel to 2009's "X-Blades" has a few too many obstacles to allow it to rise above mediocrity. Ayumi is the scantily clad eye-candy heroine of Blades of Time, a fantasy action, hack `n slash adventure. There is a completely inane storyline about Ayumi arriving on a mysterious island called Dragonland, rich in treasure but naturally fraught with peril. No previous adventurer has ever returned from Dragonland...naturally. Of course it's never quite that simple and Ayumi finds herself caught up in a battle between factions who are fighting for control of the land.

Despite some large environments to explore Blades of Time is fairly linear which honestly I don't have a problem with. The next areas won't open until you've met your objective in the current area. A quick press of the d-pad will bring up a compass to point you in the direction of your next objective so you need not ever worry about getting lost or knowing where to go next. The compass will also provide hints to the locations of treasure chests where you can find upgraded weapons and firearms or various other battle perks.

A standard skill tree is provided which allows you to expend your earned experience points to buy a wide variety of power-ups including magical attacks. These include an almost overwhelming set of combo attacks. Earning a new combo transports you to an arena to practice your new combo which isn't very realistic but is helpful.
