damn good game,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bladestorm: The Hundred Years War (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I got this game a while back but ended up trading it in after I finished it, probably because it didn't hold my attention for long after since I had many other games to play. However, I have missed playing this for a long time so I decided to buy it again.
It's a really good game, the massive armies marching around the French countryside is great. The Graphics are basic but that comes with it being a fairly oldish game but they don't take from the content at all. The badly done accents of both the French and the English soldiers are hilarious too.
The only thing I find a bit annoying about the game is that there are so many different types of unit from all kinds of cultures and time period crammed into one big war. Being a student of history this is a little peeve to me despite that it gives the game a good variety of troops to play with since I know full well African warriors took no part in the war.
Each of the units playable needs to unlock a book which allows you to use them and this book also allows you to spend exp on the units to upgrade the abilities. This is a great feature and it really allows you to play about with specialising with the units.
However cheesy the game it, it's very fun to play and if you don't mind the bad graphics then it's a great game to just sit down and have a laugh.
