Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War is a strategy videogame developed for the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360. You can choose between two kingdoms, England or France, with their unique characters such as Edward the Black Prince or Jeanne D'Arc. Furthermore, it has more eye candy than Dynasty Warriors even if it is more a Kessen than anything else. Will be available November 2, 2007.

I played the Japanese demo and the cutscenes were pretty impressive. Wish I could say the same for the gameplay. Then again I had no idea what I was doing.

Does look quite bad compared to something like Ninety Nine Nights. That had shiny bummapped armor on at least twice that amount of enemies with rarely a hiccup. This has flat PS2 non-shader textures (I kid you not).

With games like these you either have to eat your next-gen hat and pull out the "its the game that counts" super special hat, or turn your back in disgust.

Though this is not the worst example in this genre, Dynasty Warriors deserves a beating more than this.

About the game

    Sdarts The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (4 minutes ago)

    Sdarts And it ran for years under the radar of almost everyone before the anime, then it suddenly became an enourmous worldwide success. In a way, the same happened with The Witcher books and the games. (5 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (6 minutes ago)

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: English. And also listened to them in English. Same with Game of Thrones' books. (7 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (7 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX @Sdarts: Cool.. what language did you read them in? (7 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @GriftGFX: From someone who read and even listened to all The Witcher books before playing the games. The books are on par with The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Harry Potter books imho. (8 minutes ago)
