Synopsis and Features
In Blades of Time, you play as the character Ayumi. You start by entering an island that is infested with creepy and strange beasts. All would be well if you just had to finish off these creatures, but there’s something else too; something sinister that is powerful than any other living thing on the island. Overcoming obstacles and avoiding various traps you have to figure out the secret of the island and uncover it.
Developed by Gaijin Entertainment and published by Konami, Blades of time opens up a new dimension in the gaming universe. The single-player campaign in the game will introduce to various combat moves that you can utilize as you deem fit to silence your enemies. You can combine moves to create a combo, unleashing a wrath of fury on your opponents. You should plan your attacks carefully as your character’s health is minimal. This is as good addition as it drives up the intensity factor in the game.
The innovative element in the game is the Time Rewind system. This feature allows you to go back in time and is especially helpful if you are fighting a tough enemy. You can rewind time by pressing an action button and see the moves you executed last time, creating a shadow partner beside you. This way you can learn from your mistakes and deploy a new strategy to take out your enemy. Rewinding time should be done judiciously as every time you go back in time it refills your enemy’s health gauge.
Enemies are intelligent and are built with a smart AI. This makes them very perceptive in their approach towards you, making them tougher to kill. You have to think of different strategies before approaching an enemy as one wrong step can kill you in an instant. There are various superhuman abilities available in the game that you can make use of. These include powers to create earthquakes, throw ice, conjure fire and many others.
Combat becomes more fun once you figure out how to combine the magic elements with the sword attacks. This allows you to think of advanced tactics that will help you in easily taking down the enemy. The game even offers a co-op campaign that you can play along with your friend. This is helpful as your buddy can help you in slaying the enemies much faster, allowing you to race through the game and uncover all its secrets.
You can team up with family members and play Blades of Time as it includes competitive multiplayer. This addition to the game enhances its replay ability, making it a valuable buy. Using these modes you can challenge the best players from across the world and show them how well you play the game.
