The story here is weird, as expected from a Japanese production, and perhaps a little rushed in places. I'm always looking for more games to try! The characters have a lot of nice areas to fight in, yet the first four fights are all in the same rather bare spot. It has so many different styles of play, you're guaranteed to fine a combination of fighter and weapon that works. . The only reason I decided to write a review about it is because eBay's description is wrong. The controls are difficult to handle at first and the game is not easy.
If you find this game for under £10, anywhere, just buy it! A classic and ultra realistic swordfighting game Bushido Blade is the most authentic ancient Japanese weapons fighter you can buy - still Aug 2006. Back in the day this was a great game. The duel mode where you can play with a friend is very exiting, you have to become a real pro to actually kill your opponent. The grapichs are not the best but the game is pretty fun. This is not Armored core. I bought this game exclusively to relive a time when I was a teenager and this game was as cool as it got.
If you enjoy games that combine action and skill, get this game. Each Armored Core can be customized with over 300,000 possible weapon and armor combinations. I can spent hours just playing the practice mode. Any damage inflicted affects the performance of the fighter exactly as it would. The game is the first in the Armored Core series.
This game is one of the classics. One notable aspect regarding the parts, particularly weapons, in the game and its two expansions is that they are the most powerful in the series. The difference between difficulty set tings appears to be unnoticeable, and the movements of the characters when they are running is strange-looking. As part of a mercenary group known as Ravens' Nest, players will take part in more than 45 missions set in a variety of locations, such as city streets, caverns, and military strongholds. This is a great book with a ton of classic retro games but it doesn't have everything and it's even missing some of my favorite video games. My only criticisms are that the extra videos are hopelessly hard to unlock, since you must defeat everyone without a scratch and no saves available.
For instance, I used to play as the little guy holding the big sledgehammer. The realism is second to none, the weapons have weight in a way they never have in any other game, as do the fighters. Music and menus are as slick as a Kurosawa storyboard. Usuegi's Hasso Kamae to Waki Kamae Kata followed by four swings is awesome. So pull up a chair, slap on your headphones, and join me as babble aimlessly through some of my most favourite classic games! The settings feel authentic, too. Not only that, but your sword becomes even heavier if you are hit on the arm and left to fight one-handed. Upon passing this test, the player receives mission requests from corporations and other groups.
Likewise, you may find you cannot swing with your back too close to a wall, because you cannot draw the blade back. They can also be upgraded throughout the game as money is earned following the completion of a mission. Motion capture was used for the intros but not for the actual game - given this the movement is amazing, and the detail is great - bandanas ripple in the wind and bamboo crashes to the ground if you chop at your enemy and accidentally hit a tree. I loved, and still love the fact that fights can be won in a single blow or it can take 10 minutes I'm not that good. If you like to watch your opponent's health meter go down.
The main reason it was so good is because the game play is very realistic most of the times you die with only one hit and the enemies do too. Depending on which missions are chosen, the story progresses differently. A multiplayer option allows two players to battle one another in split-screen play or by linking two consoles together. The player can also read mail from various senders, and observe their rankings, which are based on mission success rates. The two largest corporations, Chrome and Murakumo Millennium, constantly battle each other for supremacy, causing significant strife among the populace. Some simply captivating special moves are waiting to be discovered. If you dislike anything about this game, you're a fool with no taste.
If you like realism in your fighting, get this. The slow version has ten missiles as opposed to the four of later versions, and is the longest range missile of this generation. Sometimes they hit you in just one arm and you can continue figthing with the other arm. Sounds bad, but it works. The three stances are not the same.
However, the competition provides endless opportunities for the Ravens, mercenaries who exist independently of the corporations. And hey, if you have ideas or suggestions feel free to leave them in the comments below. Hence, in Saturday Afternoon Gaming, screw it, I'm just going to play whatever I want! If you like Tenchu this will be for you, and the two-player mode is hour-burning fun. . .
