I was uncertain about reading all the reviews, but I took the chance and did not regret it. I have not encountered any problems so far, the game is stable, FPS sometimes drops with more units killed on the screen but it is still more than playable. Gameplay is similar to all the Koei game with some small changes of course. As always it is very fun and a bit repetitive, the only downside is the price that should go down a long time ago.
Bladestorm Hundred Years War was a game that was similar in style to Koei's Dynasty and Samurai Warrior series, with the main differences being the setting, that you are playing as a mercenary who is able to accept different missions form either the French or the British, and that you would upgrade and customize soldiers that you would then take into battle with you and give orders to. The Hundred Years War mode is included with Bladestorm Nightmare, the new Nightmare mode adds new monster, demons, and dragons that the French and English have joined together to battle. The gameplay itself plays like a normal hack and slash game, I found the actual gameplay to be weaker and simpler than Dynasty or Samurai Warriors when it comes to your character fighting, but you now have the addition of using the units that you have taken into battle with you to perform attacks and to move in formation together. In theory you are supposed to use units that are strong against enemy units, swordsmen for example should do poorly when a mounted unit charges you, however once you have started to max a unit out they are pretty much able to fight against anything effectively removing most of the strategy. The game was not optimized very well and unless you have a more powerful PC you might have problems running it. When much of the content of the game is from the 2007 version and with outdated graphics the price of $60 is asking a lot. The game is repetitive and not a big improvement of the original, for the current asking price it isn't worth it.
