Images of Bladestorm

Koei releases twenty-six (!) images of Bladestorm: Hundred Years War, their Dynasty-Warrior Kessen clone still-not-out-yet. Please refrain from telling us how it looks like a PS2 game: we've noticed.

Disregard my comment on the MoH pic's thread about milking cows because I stand corrected KOEI is the king (or queen) at milking cows.

I actualy am interested in this game for some unknow reason. I like Kessen series on PS2 this game reminds me of those times, and it does not look like PS2 game and played demo from JPSN.

I disagree with poster saying this game is a "Dynasty-Warrior clone," if you actually played the demo and research more info about the game. This game plays more like Kessen series. There is actually strategy involved as you command squad based combat. Unlike the Dynasty Warrior series, you control your character as one man army but in Bladestorm, you control as a squad.

this game doesn't play like DW ...

and I think the JPN demo was really good and fun , so I might even buy it , although the graphics aren't the best (who cares?).

The PSN demo was really fun. My cousin enjoyed it too. And as others have pointed out, it doesn't play like Dynasty Warriors.

As for the demo, me and my cousin were actually amazed at how the ally and enemy soldiers actually fought it out unlike in Dynasty Warriors.

wats with these games? they can be really fun but they always come with crappy graphics. is it impossible for the developers to take a little bit more time after they got all the combat done and improve the graphics?

@ mustacio )

low budget , good game , mediocre sales = high profit with little risk

Looks like a crap for me. o.o But I think the same about Gundam and I really like this one. =)

It doesnt look like a PS2 game and i doubt the PS2 could move that many enemies on screen.

Isn't Kessen a Koei game anyway?

About the game


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (20 minutes ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (1 Hour ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (1 Hour ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 Beat Gears 4 last night. TLDR review: Interesting story that they fail to give a satisfying ending (or any ending at all to). Hit and miss graphics, mostly hit. Weak beginning, and super weak end. (1 Hour ago)

    droezelke @KORNdog: It depends on how they define succes. If it's viewers, then it's a succes. If it's no increase in subscriptions, then it's not. (2 Hours ago)

    nostradamus preordered snes mini. just waiting for the order not to be honored. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: not in regards to costs. If it was a success, they wouldn't have cancelled it now would they. Lol. (3 Hours ago)
