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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

This game is the sequel to X Blades. The closest comparison would be Onechanbara with some Bullet Witch thrown in. Is this game great no, maybe not even good. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Ada Wong
