Look at that! It is the cavalry from Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. We can only hope for a polishing of the graphics before the game is launched November 2, 2007 in France.

The devs need to have someone on their team who just says "Look guys, you just can't sell that crap these days." They need to raise their standards, geez.

Dynasty Warriors and that Gundam Warrior game are the best Koei has to offer.

Those games are damn fun! this however doesn't excite me at al

After trying the demo ... I guess seeing it in motion doen't really help. Images look bad, game plays terrible.
Not that I was expecting anything from Koei anyway ...

is the demo worth downloading?
its 1.9 gig...
and its only at 57% and its been downloading for like an hour already
but all i want to do it play halo 3...

worth canceling?

and also, anyone played the thrillville or bee movie demos?
tempted to download SOMETHING
just in a mood to try something new

well thats sort of the problem isn't it
no such guy exists
because he really couldn't exist
because its not true.

Koei produces one Musou game after another, and they all sell fine.
"well the should suck it up and try to innovate"
thats risky business and frankly more cases of innovation in the industry have bombed that succeeded.

not to mention there's always the DQ syndrome.
S-E wanted to change some things up. the minute they mentioned it, they got bombarded with angry fans. in the end, they went back to the tried and true formula and noted sometimes you just don't argue with millions of fans.

I actually like the game, could be a good RTS.
Commented on 2007-10-07 04:03:39
I quite liked the demo.

Button mashing!

The demo was really really fun once you understand how to play. Also, I thought the game looked pretty good in motion. Definitely worth a rent

Button mashing!
Although I didn't like the game, but calling it a button mashing is wrong.

You just needed to hold the "attack" button and the character attacked by itself, you don't tap any button like a 7 year and expect anything to happen.

That was atleast how I played and got mission completed.

Well the idea is to switch between troops depending on what you are fighting.

Looks like there could be a lot of strategy the futher you go into it, I imagine the game gets much harder also, so button mashing wouldn't be an option.

As always strategy/RTS type games aren't main stream so its no surprise people don't like it.

Look at that! It's GOTY!

Dude, don't even think abuot wasting your time downloading the CRAPPY demo, it's like 2 GB wich took me about 12 hours ( shitty internet ) and I couldn't even complete 5 mins playing it.

Hell yeah it's the GOTY !

Seems like every second game these days is rendered to a smaller resolution and then scaled to 720p.
