Über das Spiel

Blades of Times Heldin Ayumi ist eine Kopfgeldjägerin, die sich nach Dragonland begibt, um dort nach gewaltigen Schätzen zu suchen. Doch schon bald erkennt sie, dass es sich bei diesem Land um eine höchst feindliche Welt handelt, die von einem dämonischen Wesen beherrscht wird; einem Wesen, welches das Land mit Verwüstung überzogen hat und alle Kopfgeldjäger, die sich bisher dorthin wagten, einkerkerte. Ayumi ist mit einem Paar Schwerter ausgerüstet und macht sich nun daran, die Regentschaft des bösartigen Herrschers zu beenden – ein Weg, auf dem sie nach und nach ihre Kampfkunst schärft und magische Fähigkeiten erlernt.

Der Titel spielt innerhalb einer 3D Landschaft, in der sich Ayumi frei bewegt. Doch überall lauern Gefahren: Seltsame Kreaturen machen Jagd auf die Heldin, die sich mit einem besonderen, zweifachen Angriffssystem zur Wehr setzt: Ayumi schlägt wahre Schneisen in Horden von Hunderten von Angreifern, während sie gleichzeitig Kombo-Attacken und Zaubersprüche erlernt. Zudem ist sie in der Lage, Zaubersprüche auf Basis von Chaos und Ordnung anzuwenden, was ihr beispielsweise die Fähigkeit verleiht, die Zeit rückwärts zu drehen und damit an der Seite eines zweiten Ichs zu kämpfen. Mit Hilfe dieser „Time Rewind“ Funktion versetzt sich Ayumi zurück an einen früheren Punkt und assistiert sich selbst in Kämpfen oder löst Rätsel - etwa, indem sie Gegenstände an bestimmten Orten zurücklässt, die ihr später von Nutzen sind.

Die finstere Welt von Dragonland steckt voller Fallen, die Ayumi vernichten oder umgehen muss, während die unterschiedlichen Schauplätze von jeweils typischen Bewohnern bevölkert werden. Ihr Weg führt Ayumi von schneebedeckten Orten in grüne Dschungel, in verfallene Städte sowie auf Himmelsinseln. Jeder Ort bringt neue Überraschungen und Bewohner hervor, so dass Ayumi ihre neu erworbenen Fähigkeiten beständig unter Beweis stellen muss. Im vom Story-Modus abgetrennten Outbreak-Modus stellen sich zwei Spieler gemeinsam den Monsterhorden in actionreichen Herausforderungen.

Die PC Fassung erscheint am 18.April 2012 auf der Plattform Steam.

Das Game ist ein schönes Hack&Slash mit liebevoll gestalteten Leveln. An vielen Ecken gibt es kleine Geheimnisse die nicht allzu schwer versteckt sind, aber viele hilfreiche Gegenstände beinhalten. Die Story ist nicht mega mäßig verzweigt, wird aber sehr schön erzählt. Man kann in dem Game zwischen 2 Schwierigkeitsgraden wählen, wobei Normal gut für die Leute ist die sich von der Story berieseln lassen wollen und nicht viel Taktik in den Kämpfen haben wollen. Bei Schwer sieht das ganze da etwas anders aus, da mehr Taktik nötig ist um die Kämpfe zu schaffen und die Kämpfe ein gutes Stück länger dauern können als normal. Das DLC ist auch sehr schön da man mehr über die Story aus einer anderen Sicht erfährt. Im Großen und ganzen hat mir das Game sehr gefallen, da es sehr viel Spaß gemacht hat und überhaupt nicht unfair war oder Passagen viel Frust verbreitet haben, selbst auf Schwer war das Game sehr Fair zu den Spieler. Wirklich ein Top Game ich kann es nur empfehlen.

Es handelt sich um ein typisches Hack&Slash mit einer kleinen interessanten Story. Die Level sind zwar im Prinzip schlauchförmig aber sehr abwechslungsreich gestaltet. Besonders angenehm ist der Übungsmodus nachdem man neue Fähigkeiten bekommen hat. Für etliche Kämpfe sind taktische Überlegungen sinnvoll. Hat mir insgesamt viel Spaß gemacht und besitzt nicht den Frustfaktor wie manch andere Spiele des gleichen Genres.

Blades of Time ist so gesehen der Nachfolger, der viel gehassten X-Blades. Während der erste Teil in einem eher cartoon-haften Stil gemacht, auch sonst relativ einfach gehalten ist und überwiegend negative Reviews eingefahren hat, kommt Blades Of Time ein bisschen erwachsener und ausgereifter rüber.

Man darf natürlich immernoch nicht mit den allergrößten Erwartungen rangehen, aber eine Steigerung ist deutlich zu erkennen. Es ist nach wie vor ein Hack'n'Slay mit wenig innovativen Gameplaymechaniken, allerdings wirkt die Kampfmechanik dieses Mal durchaus solide und es gibt auch ein paar neue Elemente - wie den Zeitklon - der einem etwas mehr Möglichkeiten und Spielraum gibt.
Leider ist das Level- und Storydesign nicht mitgereift, was das Ganze schnell langweilig werden lässt. Es gibt wenig Abwechslung bei den Aufgaben, Gegnern und Umgebungen. Man merkt dem Spiel außerdem leider immernoch an, dass es nicht mit sonderlich großen Produktionsmitteln gemacht wurde.

Was mir nicht Gefallen hat: Man hat zwar einen Begleiter, was sich prinzipiell positiv auf die Story hätte auslegen können, allerdings spielt dieser innerhalb der Geschichte fast keine Rolle. Schade, verschenktes Potential.
Was mir auch nicht Gefallen hat: Man wurde bereits im ersten Teil viel zu unvermittelt in die Story geworfen, dadurch geht mir persönlich meistens der Sinn verloren.... ich will wissen, warum ich hier bin, was ich hier mache, und was es eigentlich so über meine Vergangenheit zu wissen gibt. Ansonsten fällt es mir persönlich schwer eine Bindung zu der Geschichte aufzubauen.

Insgesamt ein okayes Spiel mit wenig Höhen und Tiefen, es plätschert halt einfach so für ca. 10h vor sich hin und ist vorbei. Die Grafik ist in Ordnung.

EDIT: Das Addon Dismal Swamp war grottig und kann ohne Probleme weggelassen werden!

If you don't expect a devil may cry type of a game it's fun to play. But don't expect too much: controls are sometimes weird and wonky especially with a controler. Story is okay but nothing special. Buy it on sale for 2€ and you will be fine.

This game started off as a bog standard action adventure game but I played on because I kind of liked it. However it became repetitive and boring quite quickly. Some of the game mechanics are annoying more than anything else. Some are real pain in the butt and I wanted to quit the game at some point. After that point I pretty must lost the interest and just played because I didn't want to ruin my average achievement percentage.

Some of the abilities feel forced and add nothing to the game. Also the game does not explain how and why the main protagonist have them. The story itself is average at best and I was not quite sure what it was about for the most part.

Combat feels floaty and unsatisfying. The enemies do not react to being hit. And also can hit you from outside the range of their melee weapons. They spawn in hoards and that's the only challenge the game has to offer. If you can even call it a challenge. The bosses are nothing special and you sometimes need to use your ability to defeat them. But again it feels forced.

You have a variety of weapons and accessories but they don't make much difference. Some of the abilities are nice to have as they make the game easier and little bit more bearable so you won't die of boredom. The guns are terrible to use but at least they can make your life a bit easier if you just want to complete the game.

One thing that made me laugh is the running animations.

All in all it's not worth any kind of money. I got it for free. But if I have bought it I would have been pissed.
Also don't even think about getting DLC. It's absolute garbage.

First things first: This game does not want to run at 4k. Or 4.5k, as it were. It really messes the HUD up and there's no way to scale it. I thought I could deal with a tiny UI, but for some reason, it messes up the boss battle health bars and stretches them across the whole screen. Not only does it obscure your health, but it doesn't show the bosses health going down. It made the fourth boss needlessly difficult as that's where I realized I could scale up the resolution
Now on to the game.
Judging by past reviews, this game may have been broken at time of release, however, it's a fully functional and *mostly* bug/ glitch free. I ran into a few bugs that got me stuck while trying to run off of the main path, mostly just jumping behind set pieces.
The game play is generally fast and plenty fun, if not repetitive. While there is often a fair amount of variety that can be had, it's kind of hampered by encountering one of the boss characters a few different times. It's not usually that big of a deal as once you figure out how to beat it once, it's easy enough to beat again.
The time mechanic is pretty fun, but annoying to get used to at first. Mostly because the default button keyboard layout is a bit cumbersome. It's definitely better with a keyboard/ mouse. But very playable via controller, especially if you have a scuf or elite controller. Being able to map to bumpers would make controller use much better.
Insofar as the actual game is concerned, it's a lot of fun overall. I enjoyed most of it, but it is a bit cliched. The voice acting isn't bad, but the first chapter is annoying as as the main character doesn't shut up.
One reviewer said the game is a mixed bag, graphically. I partially disagree. It's pretty consistent. especially in the later chapters. It's not perfect, but it is from 2012.
The story isn't terrible, it serves it's purpose, but isn't anything groundbreaking. It's predictable, but intriguing enough to keep you curious about what's next. The level design ranges from Middling, to pretty awesome. Especially in the latter half of the game.
The end game is very satisfying, but the final boss battle is just okay. I think I found a control glitch during it, but I am not sure.
The ending itself isn't bad, but feels a little abrupt, like there should be more.

I definitely recommend playing this game.

If I had to describe this game with one word, that would be: FUN!

Successfully blending elements from games like Prince of Persia, Bloodrayne, Tomb Raider, Devil May Cry and God of War, Blades of Time accomplishes quite a lot, considering it came almost out of nowhere (except a prequel, of sorts) and from a mostly unknown gaming company.

The game greatly manages to establish its world and lore, without weighing too much on them: the story is centered on an adventure guild, which, through a magic sphere operated by its guildmaster, sends its members in a remote mythical island called Dragonland, that is rumored to contain many treasures, as well as dangers.
Our heroine, Ayumi, invades the guild with her mentor, Zero and forcefully manages to get transported to said island, where her (and our) adventure begins.

Once arrived, she discovers that two warring factions exist there: the Order faction, consisting of some immortal, robotic knights, called the Skyguards and the Chaos faction, consisting of the Keeper of Chaos and its minions.
She also discovers that the island is very dangerous, as most adventurers that travel there don't get back alive and that there is no way of getting back to her world, aside from traveling all the way to a magic sphere on the other side of the island.
Let me also note that despite the island being called Dragonland, there are no dragons in it (!), as they are supposedly extinct by the hand of the bad guys.

I found the story part to be quite well made for a game I had never heard of, but that was not all the game had to offer.

The graphics were quite beautiful generally, with vibrant and vivid colors in all stages and some occasionally stunning backgrounds here and there.

The music was ok, fitting in general, but nothing memorable.

What was truly memorable though, was its gameplay! As I said in the beginning, the game mixes formulas from various successful games in quite a fun and innovative way.

In its heart, Blades of Time is a hack n' slash game, so you use two swords to carry out most attacks, while a dash move is also available to get out of tight situations, resulting in a very FAST combat style, faster than any I had seen in other similar games.

That aside, the game makes also use of guns! From rifles to machine-guns and rocket launchers, you'll find yourself in need of using them in many situations involving flying, or not, enemies. Ammunition is on the house, aka its infinite.

Magic is also present to help ease your journey: from fire, ice and earth magic to generic performance enhancement magic. The variety was quite big, I must say, with some small scale magic spells, to bigger ones, which you gain by doing repeated slash attacks.

Being partly RPG, many pieces of equipment can also be found to further enhance your abilities, specifically swords, amulets and rings.
Some alternate costumes exist as well, though without possessing any particular perks.

If all that weren't already enough to make quite a decent game, its true shining point is the ability of time manipulation, in a way unseen (at least to me) in any other game!

Essentially you can rewind time, but unlike Prince of Persia where everything rewinds, giving you the ability to undo your mistakes, Blades of Time uses a different principle: everything rewinds BUT the main player.
So, while on one hand you are unable to save yourself if you fall in a precipice or your health gets too low, on the other hand, each time you time rewind a clone of yourself is created, which repeats every action you did, for the duration of the rewind.

What's even more fun is that said clones can be more than one (I don't know the limit, but I counted at least 4-5 clones at once) and they literally copy everything you previously did, even big scale magic attacks.

A new game plus is present too, for those wanting to venture in the game's hard mode, while retaining all the items from the first campaign and at the same time being able to gather new ones, to even further enhance yourself.

A DLC mission is also available, which was decent, since it introduced some new enemies and places and even makes you go through a castle siege, which was quite epic. Overall though it was a bit more boring than the main game, since you play with a secondary character named Michelle, which unfortunately possesses all the abilities Ayumi has, minus the magic and time manipulating ones.

Lastly, a multiplayer part exists as well, in which you have to destroy the enemy team's base, by using various perks you gain as you progress in the game, and I must say was quite fun too.

However, the game isn't without its shortcomings, as the budget limitations do show in some occasions.
The fighting style may seem impressive and fast, but because of such speed many attacks feel uncoordinated and casual. The variety of weapons and items, too, may seem big, but in reality most abilities they provide tend to repeat themselves.
And finally, while I wouldn't call the game's length small, its 10 missions don't take that much time to complete.

All that said, I believe that Blade of Time's positive traits far outweigh the negative ones, so it is definitely a recommendation from me. It's a pity that this game didn't get the recognition it deserved, probably due to a bad marketing campaign, because it was quite a FAST and FUN hack n' slash experience, unlike many others I played.

The game is very linear and the story is pretty forgettable, but no one is buying this game for its story. What you want is to watch a scantly clad babe mindlessly hacking and slashing monsters, and you'll get that.

So, turn off your brain, relax and have fun with your waifu (or waifus, time travel, you know) while she blasts enemies with magic, carves them to pieces and talks about... something (this game have a story?).

Just forget about the DLC. It's not worth it.

Blades of Time est un hack&slash avec quelques éléments de puzzle, dans un univers de fantasy. Le jeu date de 2012 et les graphismes correspondent bien à la fin de la génération PS3/Xbox 360. Si les textures ne sont pas phénoménales, le titre compense en utilisant abondamment d'effets visuels et surtout avec une direction artistique très sympa. Les niveaux sont variés visuellement et on progresse avec plaisir dedans. Côté système de combat, on a droit à beaucoup de choses : des affrontements à l'épée, des attaques magiques, du tir et de la manipulation temporelle ! Chacun de ces aspects est basique et l'ensemble reste assez bourrin mais cela n'empêche pas de s'amuser, bien au contraire. Au final, un bon jeu sans prise de tête (sauf peut-être pour certains achievements :-)) que je recommande. Dernière remarque, le DLC ne vaut pas le coup : environnement terne, combats répétitifs et gameplay limité par rapport au jeu de base, à esquiver.

This game plays like a cross between Diablo and Dark Souls with some Bayonetta thrown in. It is not too difficult but quite enjoyable. Fast action and nice abilities (that are somewhat overpowered). Quite linear and story is a bit meh, but I didn't really care. Some puzzles are a bit frustrating until you truly understand the time rewind mechanic (which is essential).

The main reason I will not recommend this game is the forced use of the rewind mechanic. What should be a tool that opens up creativity when dealing with situations and bad guys is simply forced on the player to use in a very straightforward sense. Several enemies can only be defeated using it, but the loop of defeating them is near identical from enemy to enemy. I feel it was a miss when it could've been a defining feature.

It runs on Linux almost flawlessly either through proton or wine. There seems to be only 1 glitch in the Skyguards level... Can't say this game is perfect, but it is really fun to play. The gameplay is really enjoyable because the player gets fancy perks/abilities around every 10 minutes. In terms of character progression and unlocking abilities it is really well made. There are some puzzles, but nothing difficult. The set of abilities is really fun, some battles are quite difficult, yet even on the hardest difficulty the player is not required to use everything it has in the battles between bosses. The controls and UI are really simple and convenient even though there are many different abilities your character can do.

Cut scenes, dialogues, animations, and quotes. The animations and quotes get repeated, most of them are really basic even in some boss fights, while others are overengineered masterpieces. The plot and story are average.

The gameplay balance is so nice that the game can be completed in one go, just allocate contiguous chunk of time for the weekend and enjoy. It will be hard to pause or stop when you have started.

I finished in about 92 hours all together and really enjoyed the game and the graphics were really very pretty and unique. In many ways it reminded me of the Darksiders series of games including the graphics and most of the game play. It has a time rewind feature that made for some of the most interesting fighting I have ever seen. If you buy it for ten to fifteen dollars it is a great deal and well worth your time and money, especially if you liked Darksiders.
Now for the bad...there were some bugs I ran into, particularly on the final boss...first part. For some reason, I kept falling through the floor and had to retry. I finally made it through though, so I don't know what was going on. That and the 'magic' response was a bit slower on the same part. Maybe there was just too much going on but I have a computer built for gaming and I still had the problem. The game was so much fun to play though that I didn't mind having to restart the level and redo it. It is a rare game for me where that is true. As a former beta tester, bugs really bother me in a game that is supposed to be ready for the general public. Usually bugs like that get the game deleted and a nasty review. It means either a beta tester missed something or a programmer dropped the ball. That being said, however the game was so enjoyable I was willing to overlook that bug and I will be replaying it again soon.
As for the DLC, it took me literally 15 minutes of playing to finish and I did it at the same time I was watching a show on TV, if that gives you an idea of how hard it was to do All sword and gun, no magic and all in all a waste of my three dollars. Unless you get it for less than a dollar it is not worth the money. It is also absolutely full of screen edge troubles, like no one even looked at it for continuity. The mediocre graphics didn't help any either.
I hope they come out with a sequel to BofT though. It is a game that deserves one. Just hope they keep the quality and game play the same and if they decide on DLCs they make them live up to the quality of the game and not the miserable attempt they sold as the first DLC. Its better to put small divergences like what they sold as a DLC, directly into the story line and not try to sell them separately. At least for me, the DLCs that involve actual game play and not just fancy equipment, should be at least a quarter of the game's length and something that you cannot easily fit into the story itself. Otherwise, it is just better to include those little fifteen minute asides directly into the main game. Hope this review helps everyone.

An okay pickup if you happen to find it on sale and are looking for a simple slasher game experience. Perfect for mindless slash-happy chaos.

Pros:

1) Responsive controls and combos

2) Decent graphics for the time period

3) Good level design

Cons:

1) The dialogue has most likely been written by a person whose first language is not English. To make things worse, the voice acting is quite uninspired.

2) There isn't really much of a story going on. The characters are pretty generic and their motives are equally generic as well. (This is most likely linked to con number 1)

3) The base outfit purely exists for fan-service and to potentially boost sales. Fortunately, you get better outfits later on in the game. (This may be a pro for you, I don't know your life).

Additional note:

If you pick up the game and are experiencing issues with the sound, you may have to change your sound format from 44100 Hz to 48000 Hz. [[ Control Panel > Sound > Playback > (Select your device) > Properties > Advanced > Default Format ]]

This is one of the most generic, boring, repetitive games I've ever played.

Pros:

- Level design is not bad, it's mixed with unique locations.
- Some of the skyboxes and lightning is great, even to this day.
- Time rewind ability is cool, but sadly not used well.
- Some of the enemies have cool designs.

Cons:

- From the very start, our main character just keeps on talking and talking and talking, and it's mostly nonsense. Voice acting is horrible, everyone sounds like they aren't even trying, it's like all was made in one take. Just terrible, and the writting is even worse.
- I'm shocked there are many positive reviews praising story, what the f*** ? What story are we talking about here? You won't even know most of the time what you are doing and fighting for.
- Platforming sucks, because movement sucks.
- Shooting seems tacked on.
- It's one of those games where 95% of it is filled with cutscenes, including the ones where you press every f****** switch and it shows a 5 second cutscene of, for example, door opening. It just ruins the flow of the game, especially if you are hunting achievements and you have to do multiple playthroughs. I hate these kind of games, you can actually see enemies in the distance and when you get closer to them, it starts a 5 second cutscene of showing them how they stand there... What the f*** ?
- There should have been more collectibles, you have some notes throughout the game that you don't care about and some chests that contain items, but that's all bare bones.
I mean, you play as female character in third person mode and yet there only exists 3 costumes in the whole game! There should be 10 at least, I mean these types of games thrive on it.
- Gameplay is repetitive and gets boring really fast.

Not recommending it, even for this price or sale price. Not worth your time and effort.

Super-generic and repetitive third person action game. Annoying combat, poor platforming, irritating timing-based puzzles. Plot and dialogues are a case study in poor writing.

Do yourself a favour... if this game seems remotely interesting in premise, skip it and pick up something similar that's actually enjoyable like Bayonetta, Tomb Raider: Legend, Tomb Raider: Anniversary or BloodRayne.

Good:
- Fun mechanics/combos
- Doesn't hold your hand through everything so you actually have to think for yourself
- Good pacing with the puzzles/bosses/story/action
- Puzzles
- Looks pretty good, character faces aren't the greatest but you are not looking at them often
- Hilariously bad voice acting
- Rewardingly difficult
Bad:
- Forgettable soundtrack
- Not enough collectibles
- Bad story
- No replay value (there's a hard mode but completing it doesn't give you any rewards)
- It's short (~10h)
Tl;dr:
It's a good bad game. It has many fun mechanics which sadly don't get used to their full extent. It's not a perfect game by any means and it's definitely a game that's not for everyone. 7,5/10

Overall decent game but not great. I really liked Ayumi and Miranda Raison was her VA. A bit chaotic but fun and did some neat things with time in combat. Smooth game-play, story was nonsense, area design was kinda meh. Worth the 8 hours.

Less than an hour of playing and I was already giving up. The fighting seems very repetitive; a bunch of enemies that looks the same attacks you almost out of nowhere, you use mouse clicks to activate your fight moves a bunch of times before using the finishing move. Rinse and repeat.

Also didn't help that the super shiny visuals burns your eyes. I should probably give the game more time (maybe it's actually good), because it seems like there might be certain interesting mechanics in the game, but it already annoyed me too much to want to continue playing. One of those games you buy for cheap and still regret you have used time downloading and installing it.

Remember X-Blades? My condolences if you do, but if you don’t, let me just inform you that it was a 2007 Russian game that we unfortunately received in the West in 2009. It was a terrible game that assaulted your senses in the worst way possible. It had terrible graphics, terrible visuals, terrible music, terrible story, terrible voice acting, and most importantly, terrible gameplay. Yes, I’m being redundant just to emphasize how terrible of a game it was. I am not joking when I claim that the game even gave me headaches.

Now we jump to 2012. Gaijin Entertainment, the developer behind that travesty, perhaps as a sort of recompense, bestowed upon us Blades of Time, a spiritual successor to X-Blades. So how does this game fare?


[h1]Visuals[/h1]
It has better graphics, better lighting, and better color theming than X-Blades, but that’s not saying much. It still looks like a budget game. At least Blades of Time has a variety of interesting locales.

[h1]Story[/h1]
You play as Ayumi, a treasure hunter who, after breaking into the Guild’s hall with her partner Zero and beholding the fabled Dragon Sphere, gets herself transported to Dragonland, home to a hidden but great treasure. Along the way, Ayumi obtains magical abilities that aid her in dealing with the enemies and monsters that obstruct her path.

The story starts off simple enough, but as more characters and plot elements are added in, the story gets convoluted and confusing very quickly. Even worse, some character motivations are at odds with their actions. Even if a story has complicated elements, it should still make sense, but a lot of the story just doesn’t make sense. Not that that matters much though, because the main appeal is supposed to be the gameplay anyway. By the way, I hope you get used to Ayumi’s voice, because she talks A LOT, commenting about almost every single detail in her surroundings, DURING GAMEPLAY.

[h1]Gameplay[/h1]
Fortunately, Blades of Time is a major step up from X-Blades in the gameplay department. It prides itself as a fast-paced hack-and-slash & third-person shooter hybrid. There are even magic attacks and an interesting Time Rewind mechanic to vary up the gameplay. Occasionally, you can perform cool counter and finisher animations on lesser enemies. The gameplay can be rather entertaining to watch.

However, the gameplay itself still has major issues. To start off, the combat is mindless and repetitive. There is absolutely no sense of combos in the vain of Devil May Cry. You have a weapon button and a kick button, but mashing the weapon button leads to an infinitely looping combo, while the kick button only serves as a popup into an aerial kick combo. There is no strategy to melee combat other than to wail on your opponents until they're dead, dash if needed to avoid being attacked, and kick popup an enemy to help alleviate the monotony. Magic doesn’t help to vary up the gameplay too much. Level 1 magic are frontal attacks while level 2 magic are AOE moves. In order to use magic, you have to build up a rage meter. That means mindlessly and repetitively attacking enemies. The Time Rewind mechanic is an interesting mechanic that is used for both combat and puzzles. It allows the player to potentially create several clones that mimic the player’s earlier actions. Despite the potential to swiftly beat enemies and bosses to a pulp with Time Rewind clones, it does not much alleviate combat’s repetitiveness given Time Rewind’s cooldown limits. The third-person shooter gameplay, on the other hand, is quite decent, especially if you play with mouse & keyboard controls. Ayumi moves really fast during third-person shooter mode, so shooting combat can be just as fast-paced as melee combat. Add in Time Rewind clones, and combat in general can be pretty fun at times, although still very repetitive and mindless.

Unfortunately, combat has a fatal flaw: no post-damage invincibility after receiving enemy attacks. Imagine 4 or more enemies swiping at you at once. If you take even one of the hits, you’ll take them all, leading to unavoidable stagger and major damage. If you play on Hard Mode, you’d probably even be dead from such a situation. I cannot even tell you how many times I’ve died because I keep getting staggered and receive damage one after another, and this was on Normal Mode. In this regard, the game can be rather difficult, but not in a fair way at all. It’s almost as if the generous checkpoint system was placed to avoid as much perception of artificial difficulty and cheapness as much as possible. Well, I’m not blind, and such a flaw in combat is inexcusable.

Other than combat, the game is a bit of an adventure game with platforming elements. The platforming is lackluster. Ayumi has poor forward jumping momentum, making even small distances difficult and nerve-racking. Again, the generous checkpoint system seems to have been placed to alleviate these major issues. Time Rewind is used often in many puzzles throughout the game. There is almost a Prince of Persia feel to puzzles.

[h1]Conclusion[/h1]
Blades of Time is a major step up from the travesty known as X-Blades. It’s fast-paced hack and slash and third-person shooter gameplay can be pretty fun at times, but it is ultimately mindless and repetitive with a major flaw in combat where the player can be stunlocked to death by consecutive enemy attacks, leading to many swift and unexpected deaths. Platforming is poor, but the Time Rewind puzzles are interesting. It seems as if the generous checkpoints were placed to alleviate the major issues of the game itself. Blades of Time can be a fun romp if you turn your brain off. I would hardly recommend this game to hardcore fast-paced hack-and-slash fans though. The current price of $9.99 USD is not bad, but it’d be a better deal if you got it for cheaper. I picked up the Limited Edition from a secondhand Steam key site for a little over $2.

Oh, one interesting thing to note. Although the game supports other voiced languages, Ayumi's English attack grunts were not revoiced in French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Russian. Only Japanese has fully revoiced lines (barring the DLC), probably because the game was also released in Japan. For anime fans, the Japanese dub might be worth checking out, especially since Ayumi is voiced by tsundere queen Rie Kugimiya. ;)

It took me 7 years to beat this 12 hours game I'll tell you that much. I just did because I love hack and slash, it's like stress relief for me, yet, this game is so bland that I would get tired of it after only 30 mins of gameplay, then I would play another 30 - 40 mins in the next 7 months and so on.

Nothing is remarkable, even for the year it came out. Boring enemies, bland scenarios and artstyle, weird/bad animations, nonsense story, annoying puzzles... I could keep going but I'll leave it there.

Only thing positive is that the game supports ultrawide, no fps caps or drops, but other than that I'll probably never play this game again neither in this life nor in the other in case there's one.

I cannot stand the dialogue, the combat is boring, and the enemies are uninspiring. This did not age well.

Blades of Time is like the majority of hack n slash games that released during the late 2000's and early 2010's. It's gritty, corny, has awkward controls, love em or hate em characters and a story that is borderline good and yet, Blades of Time still resonates its own charm that can't be denied.

Simply put, Blades of Time features a dual sword wielding protagonist who acquires magic casting abilities throughout her quest, along the way she'll acquire new melee and gun variants that each offer their own bonus depending on your preference. Character skins are available for the player however due to the age of the game, you may be limited to the 4 that are given as you progress through the campaign, otherwise you'll need to search the web or steam's guides.

Honest, If you're looking for a cheap early 2010's hack n slash experience that offers the aforementioned qualities and you've already experience the likes of Darksiders, I highly suggest Blades of Time.

p.s. If you are having difficulty with the final boss due to its mechanics, USE HEAVY STRIKE when you've dropped its shields in conjunction with your Time state.
