Fresh ideas can't save Bladestorm from mediocrity.

Oh Koei, those wacky funsters. With their help we've hacked our way through ancient China and slashed a path across feudal Japan. Now they've pointed us towards the carnage of another famous historical conflict on a whole new continent: the torching of...

Like most Koei games, one must be willing to tolerate a lot of repetition in order to enjoy Bladestorm. There's very little that is fundamentally different between your very first contract and your very last. Sure there are more unit types in play as...

Bladestorm breaks new ground, but will mainly appeal to Koei die-hards.

It's raining swords. Koei's push into European history self-destructs.

Bowling through battalions of infantry is chaotic and fun; good number of troop types; lots of units on the screen at once; there's music; game provides some token historical context

Incomplete strategy or action elements; Bladestorm doesn't provide enough tools to develop meaningful tactics; one-button combat; unresponsive AI resolves enemies to being sword-fodder; no competitive or co-op modes (online or local); ability- and...

If you're starved for strategy and like the idea of open-area, semi-persistent medieval battle scenes, Bladestorm might make sense. Unfortunately, you won't find rewarding, patient strategy, or dynamic action within. Couple this underdeveloped concept...
