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

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?

    Sdarts also angry that he missed out on so much money. And of course, the lack of ownership and direction of the characters' and story's path. Which I'm sure no author likes loosing control over something. (0 minute ago)

    Megido That's actually funny. Zapkowski said that the games aren't canon in his view, but i guess CDPR decieds what's canon and not if they own the IP. Hahaha. (12 minutes ago)

    Sdarts @Megido: That's true as well. He obviously did a bad job with selling. Also, if I'm not mistaken, CD Projekt RED has the full rights to The Witcher IP, meaning that if any movies or TV show is ever (14 minutes ago)
