Nice review, though honestly, for a 4/10 game you would have made me want to play it with a description, since it sounds so very different. I actually played it before and enjoyed the game, though yes, it's got a steep learning curve, but once you get the right blades little can stand in your way. All you need to do is survive until then.

Actually, what I found was that while I could survive with the right blades for a good while, eventually something would go wrong and I would die and LOSE ALL MY EXCELLENT BLADES AND HAVE TO START FROM ZERO!!!!

AGH!

This is excellent. Using your personal experiences really helped illustrate all the problems with this game. I now know to stay the hell away from this game.

And I hate those games where it advertises glorious specials moves if you time the block button perfectly. As you said, those are more random luck than anything else. There is no way anyone is that fast.

This is a game which tries to let the player create their own story. I've given you the story I created. The freedom of movement and decision was stymied greatly by the lack of freedom in being able to actually defeat anyone. Glad I got that across, thanks for reading and commenting!
