Blade of Darkness holds true to the greatest of hack and slash legends, combining sorcery, knights, and swords with god forsaken enemies that deserve to have their arms slashed off with a broadsward. Blade of Darkness looked excellent in 2001, and still delivers its gore well today. Holding True to it's genre it offers modders both custom maps and scripts.

Gameplay is good, but not the best. We fighting all the time slashing enemies like butter (making combos), but they can easily do the same with us.

Sad fact is, there is no other thing to do in the entire game, except solving simple puzzles, and ...slashing...

There is a plot, but honestly, after two levels of game I forgot, what is going on, slashing every enemy on my way. Nothing good...
Also NPCs seems like they not often appear in game. If they appear, They only say few words or they have nothing to say.

Graphics are nice even in these days. The effects of light and shadow are quite impressive. I wonder only, why developers also created the wonderful water effects, when game levels are simply empty. It's pity when we have only few miscellaneous objects on each level and a lot of crates, and other stuff that unnecessarily use phisics and consume memory.

Music is the best thing in game. Appear in right moments and builds the atmosphere. Simple and effective.

I should give 6 or 7 (bearing in mind the simple story and simple puzzles)but this is a slasher game, progenitor of eg. Dark Souls, so I do not expects too much from this type of game.

a very cool game in his time, a good game for low-end users and lots of gore!

Oh my god! This game is terrible. The controls are some of the worst I have ever experienced! Why does there need to be a lock-on feature? Why can't I just strafe left and right? Why don't any of the combos register? This game is borderline unplayable.
