Good looking as Bladeslinger Ep. 1 might be, it’s a hollow and oft-miserable slog. Hit the saloon, instead.
Bladeslinger Ep.1 Review
by on January 11, 2013
If Bladeslinger’s episodic nature hints at some kind of grand ambition for this original hack-and-slasher, it certainly doesn’t come through in the debut installment, which fumbles through a couple of hours of joyless repetition.
Control flaws are a constant concern, whether it’s too-similar inputs for very different combat commands or the awkward swipe-and-hold movement scheme, but the bigger issue is a severe lack of excitement or variety.
The near-identical missions span numerous near-identical fights against oft-repeated monsters – and good luck getting through without putting real cash towards health potions (which the game otherwise withholds despite stingy currency rewards for combat). Should this first episode be an indication of what’s ahead, we’ll happily skip this slinger’s saga.
