A nice hack and slash game, with good looking main characteraxeldna | Nov. 24, 2012 | Review of Blades of Time: Limited Edition
I played the first version of this game (X-Blades), and have to say this is way much better, if we talk about graphics, game story and gameplay (yes, everything is better).
About graphics, both games are good, but this is a more recent game so it has to be better. However, X-Blades has some kind of "toon" characters, and Blades of Time has more realistic ones, which makes more sense because the game is not for children, but for teenagers and beyond.
About story, this has been improved a lot, just because the first game all you could understand was: Ayumi went to a temple, found some monsters, killed them and then she left. Blades of Time has a better explanation of events in game, so when you play, you really know why Ayumi has to move on.
About gameplay, X-Blades had a linear gameplay (you have only one way to follow), but this game gives you choices to follow game story. There is much many skills and powers available to learn and unlock for Ayumi (the main character), making the game really fun, because you want to keep going to get Ayumi's maximum level. Besides, when I was playing with Ayumi, I felt some kind of Devil May Cry fighting style, and that was good because I liked Devil May Cry. There is one more thing, Ayumi has a time power, where she remembers her past (in fact, she summons another Ayumi from past) and you can have more than one Ayumi at the time. This was a very nice feature.
So, the game itself is some kind of mix between Devil May Cry and Prince of Persia, with a good looking main character, and that's enough to make it a really good game. I really recommend it, you won't regret if you like hack and slash games.
Amazing game, shocking graphics (even for the high end PC)axeldna | Oct. 30, 2012 | Review of Metro 2033 PRE
I bought this game some time ago and got it for $3 (here at GreenManGaming, really nice deal) and I recently played it after a month of purchase.
Personally I could not stop playing after 3 hours, because story game kept me going, this talks a lot about game environment, although so far in the game I haven't seen day light (full underground game, maybe when I progress I can see the sun).
I have to say I have a very powerful video card, Nvidia GTX 680, and when I set all video settings to MAX (very high graphic detail, maximum antialiasing and maximum anisotropic filtering) with 1920x1080 resolution, I could never get 60fps. If you want to play with more than one monitor (at 2560x1600 resolution), you should consider getting two high end graphic cards to support this game at its maximum graphic details.
I totally recommend this game, especially to that people with powerful PC and powerful video card.
