The game was moderately enjoyable though it felt very much like every other title that Blades of Time obviously gained inspiration from. The gameplay was familiar but a bit lackluster as it got old fast. The decision to split ranged and melee left the game a bit disconnected, dare I say disengaging. The improvement’s that where made still fall under the shadows of itself.
Blades of Time is a 2012 character action game from Gaijin Entertainment, a studio whose bread and butter seems to be military vehicle combat simulators. Why it’s been resurrected in 2019 for the Switch is confusing, especially since it runs so poorly and feels downright prehistoric in an era where character action games have come so far. Yes, it tries to do something different. No, that different thing isn’t implemented particularly well.
This is the beauty of the Nintendo Switch. Its portable nature and the fact everybody wants to publish games for it allow for a game like Blades of Time to find a new home where I would have least expected. It’s a deeply flawed game with technical issues and a pathetic script that I probably would have hated playing on a more traditional home console.
