Default Blackguards - Two More Previews

November 26th, 2013, 07:26
Here are two more previews of the Early Access version of Blackguards.

Twinfinite

All the elements are there: lovely environments, great voice acting, diverse characters, good story, big skill trees, plenty of abilities, but none of these things can work if the heart of the game isnít pumping the right blood into the veins of Blackguards. The combat, a major part of any turn-based strategy RPG falters in the silliest ways. Thereís a great attention to detail in the whole package, except where it really counts, and thatís just not enough to drive the game home. Strategy is left nearly completely moot when victory winds up heavily reliant on luck, and character building takes too long to help it.
GamingLives

Daedalic are relatively unproven outside the world of adventure games but Blackguards shows a lot of potential. Itís very pretty, has a well-written Ė if a little clichéd Ė story and generally enjoyable combat. It still needs some polish, there are a few balance issues that seem to be related to your starting class, the RNG can be brutal at times and it would benefit greatly from a bit more of a helping hand for those of us unfamiliar with Germanyís most popular RPG ruleset, but I have high hopes for it once the game is complete.

In fact, it closely resembles Fable in a lot of ways, except that this is a turn-based strategy RPG.

I'm starting to see the same thing after his embarrassing Baldur's Gate 2 EE review. Sadly I don't have the time to search, and read every news-bit I post.

This "Twinfinite" site is an embarrassment.
