Bladestorm: Nightmare PS4 Review

Blade

Bladestorm: Nightmare is a third-person strategy game from Omega Force, developers of the Dynasty Warriors franchise. The game is a remake of 2007’s Bladestorm: The Hundred Year’s War but brings some new features along. Is it enough to warrant a return to the war, or enlist for the first time? Yes and no.

Nightmare loosely retells the story of The Hundred Year’s War between England and France in the 14th and 15th centuries. You star as a voiceless mercenary leader, whom you create yourself, using the game’s impressively robust edit mode. The game feature’s a free-mission system, which allows you to select which contracts you want your mercenary to carry out. Seeing as you are a mercenary, you can do contacts for either side of the conflict. Most of the missions do not add to the game’s plot, but you can expect to fight during some key battles, on the side of who historically won obviously. After completing each contract, players will head back to the Tavern, where they can purchase new equipment for their mercenary, select new contracts and hire extra help.

During combat controls are easy to use on the battlefield the player takes command of a squad with the press of a button. Holding down R1 allows your mercenary and his or her troops to attack the enemy freely. Each squad also has three unique special abilities — called action skills, at their disposal. Each action skill has cooldown, so you can’t expect to button mash your way to victory. This is a strategy game after all. Properly utilizing your squad is the only way to be victorious.

Take command!

Speaking of properly utilizing your squads, the game features a rock paper scissors style mechanic when it comes to facing off against enemy troops. Basically some units have and advantage over certain troops, but will be at a disadvantage going up against others. For example, a squad of swordsmen would be effective facing off against a unit armed with rapiers, but would also be easily defeated by troops riding horses. So taking command of the right squad during fights is ideal, otherwise you’ll find yourself tasting defeat.

Sadly, the game’s battles are not that exciting at first. In fact they are rather dull. Your squad starts off fairly small, with only a handful of troops fighting alongside you. Add in the mostly slow paced combat and you find yourself in some really boring confrontations. Traversing the battlefields can also be somewhat of a bore in the beginning, as they are quite large and character movement isn’t that fast.

Charging into battle, slowly.

Upgrading your squad(s) thankfully does away with this issue. Using Skill Points (Earned in battle), players can increase their strength, defense and even the number of troops. Commanding a squad of 30 is empowering, especially when you are striking down your foes with relative ease. As you progress through the game, you gain the ability to command more than one squad (Up to four in total) at the same time. Your mercenary makes allies as time passes and they will team up with you in battle. Battles become much more intense and fun, when you have hundreds of soldiers at your command. The game does a good job capturing large scale showdowns and making you feel like you are in control of a true army.

Even though the combat picks up, the game still suffers. The A.I. — both ally and enemy, is rather inconsistent. At times they will do what they are supposed to do on the battlefield, other times they won’t. Allies and enemies alike will stop moving, or just run into walls. The mission objectives are extremely repetitive. Every battle consist of defeating enemy troops defending a village, city or castle. Once those troops are defeated, then you must defeat the base commander to take control of the location. Every mission requires you to do this to some extent. Even if the main objective is to defend your location, or escort an ally, capturing enemy bases is still required. Frame rate occasionally take a nose dive when too much action is on screen, especially when unleashing the Bladestorm special attack.

The game features the all new Nightmare mode. In this scenario the war between England and France has ended, due to rise of demonic creatures. Now it is up to the player to track down Joan of Arc and put an end to the monster threat. This mode is easily the more fun of the two, with the inclusion of supernatural enemies. Not only do you get to fight against the likes of Ghosts and Dragons, but you also acquire books for them, allowing your mercenary to command them in battle. The monsters for the most part, have cooler special abilities than the humans do. Vanquishing my enemies with a squad of Griffins was a true highlight of the game. They also allow you to get across the large battlefields faster, which is a plus. Another plus about Nightmare mode is the option to import your mercenary and everything you unlocked from your Hundred Year’s War playthrough.

Griffins

Griffins. Mother F’ing Griffins!

The story progresses differently in Nightmare mode. Instead of the Hundred Year’s War free mission system, the story is presented through nine lengthy Chapters. While the plot in Nightmare feels more structured than in HYW, it doesn’t warrant any attention thanks to the poor voice acting and uninteresting characters.

Sadly while this new mode is fun, it also filled with the same technical issues and design problems that plagued the previous one; from terrible A.I. to repetitive mission objectives. Not a single improvement was made in those areas. The final boss battle was also overly long and boring. Finally beating it should have left me feeling proud, or with some positive emotion. Instead I just felt annoyed.

Nightmare mode can also be played cooperatively with one other friend or person. The online community is pretty non-existent, as it took forever to find someone online to play. You are better off playing with someone you know who has the game. Co-op play can also be fun but only if you are on equal footing, in terms of squad level. Otherwise one player may end up doing most of the work since they have the stronger force. Nothing fun about watching someone get all the kills. Playing online was smooth, with no noticeable lag whatsoever.

You can also partake in versus mode, which feature four different missions; Capture Bases, Capture Guardians, Defeat Commanders and Monster Campaign. The first three are pretty self-explanatory and victory is awarded to the first player. The fourth mission requires you to land the final blow to a particular monster type or number of monsters to earn a point. These are a nice enough distraction from the story modes but as with co-op, if you are paired with someone who isn’t on your level, then matches will be extremely unfair. That is if you can find someone to play with.

From a visual standpoint the game does not impress. While it doesn’t look bad — the character models look fine, the environments are very bland and uninspiring. The music is impressive and helps capture the feel of being in battle, but it quickly becomes repetitive and overstays its welcome.

Final Verdict: Despite a boring start, Bladestorm: Nightmare turns into a more enjoyable experience as you progress. The Nightmare mode is welcomed addition and the best way to experience the game. Unfortunately, while the large scale battles are fun, they’re not enough to completely save this title from being brought down by its repetitive design and nagging flaws. Its online component lacks a healthy community. I can only really recommend this if you were a fan of the original, as you may find more enjoyment with Nightmare. Everyone else, you are better off playing something else.

Zelda – Hyrule Warriors (Wii U Exclusive) New Screenshots + Concept Art Released By Nintendo [Official]

Zelda - Hyrule Warriors

Hype, anticipation, confusion, curiosity, doubt, belief, hope; these are some of the emotions that can be attributed to Nintendo Wii U gamers right now who prefer to pursue a seal of Nintendo approved exclusive title such as Hyrule Warriors. This title may end up getting its name changed before the final build is shipped to the public, and Nintendo commissioned Omega Force / Tecmo Koei in order to get it done. Nonetheless this is a great chance for fans of Link to experience something different while waiting for the project currently codenamed as ‘Zelda U’ or ‘Zelda Wii U’ by conspiracy watchers.

The following Official screenshots were released by Nintendo for Hyrule Warriors the Nintendo Wii U Exclusive announced late last year. These snapshots were taken from “the good angles” using in-game rendering. In addition to showing off some semblance of what the final product’s gameplay may end up being like, these screens also reveal a few landscapes Hyrule Warriors will feature and showcase the newly envisioned graphical presentation of well-known characters Link, Impa, Wizro, Valga, Shia, and The Black Witch.

Nintendo also released the following Concept Art images for Zelda – Hyrule Warriors. These images include enemies and potentially playable characters. Concept Art is created for use during development of the game and usually respresents the way characters will be represented in the final product, but may vary as they are something of a blueprint for developers to run off of.

So far, it’s unclear what the final name of Zelda – Hyrule Warriors will be or how the retail game will differ from the preview material we are being shown. If Nintendo’s track record is any indication though, extensive QA testing is hopefully on the horizon for this title’s development cycle. Hyrule Warriors is currently expected to release in Japan on August 28, 2014 and has not been given a release date for Europe / Australia / North America regions just yet. Also, in case anybody missed it, below is a convenient replay of the Hyrule Warriors 2013 Announcement Trailer released by Nintendo in December.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition PS4 Review

dynasty-warriors-8-xtreme-legends_td-605x300

After being released in July of last year for current gen consoles, Omega Force and Tecmo Koei’s Dynasty Warriors 8 has finally received its standalone ‘Xtreme Legends’ expansion. It has been bundled togther with the full game as Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Completed Edition for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. Is it a worthwhile update, or just fluff?

The game features five story campaigns that loosely tells the historical tale of the “Three Kingdoms”. Four of them make a return from DW8 but the fifth is all new and focuses on the strongest warrior of them all; Lu Bu and tell his side of the story. Each campaign will take around 5 hours or less to complete depending on skill level. If you’ve played four them on the PS3 version already and don’t really feel all that enticed to do it again, the game now features an ‘Ultimate’ difficulty level to make things even more challenging and new what if storylines to unlock.

Dynasty-Warriors-8-Xtreme-Legends

Lu Bu is not impressed with Chen Gong.

Gameplay is largely unchanged from the previous version and for now that’s okay as the game is still fun as hell to play despite its simplicity. The game continues the trend of making the player a one man/woman army, as you hack and slash your way through large groups of enemy soldiers all the while racking up a ridiculously high combo chain with flashy over the top attacks. Everything from DW8’s gameplay is back; Commander Affinity, Storm Rush, and Rude Awakening, the improved character progression, its all there (Read the DW8 Review for more info, if you are unfamiliar).

This time around, every playable character (A total of 80, including the 5 new ones) has gained a second EX attack for their weapons and a little more variety to the combos. They are also all unlocked from the get go, no need to play through any modes in order to get them. While this may bother some who would prefer to earn the characters, it makes sense as most of players who purchase the CE would most likely have played DW8 on PS3. This game features the option to transfer your saved data from the PS3 version to the PS4 version, so rather than anger those who have leveled up an unlockable character, only to find them locked, Omega Force decided to have everyone available from the onset. That’s what I’m assuming anyway.

New weapons are available to unlock and they add more variety to the combat. Many of the weapons are pretty outlandish but are fun to use, so unless you are the type that sticks with just one weapon, there are plenty of reasons to experiment. Combine that with the ability to equip any two weapons on your officers and you are looking at a plethora of combinations to go into battle with. Yes the game can still get repetitive, the camera will occasionally get in the way and the frame-rate will drop when the actions get too hectic on screen but it still manages to be quite fun. It’s even better when playing with friend, which can do either locally or online. The game also supports cross across the PS3, PS4 and PS Vita versions. That’s not a feature I have been able to test out but when I do I will update. Anyway check out this sweet combo. Seriously, where else can you pull of insanely high combo chains such as this?

 

If I only I could have gotten it over 9000… 🙂

Yeah I know there isn’t any sound, that footage was recorded using the PS4’s game capture feature and for some reason there isn’t any audio when recording this game. With other games I own, it works fine but with not this. It could be an issue on Sony’s side or it could be the game itself. This is just a warning to those looking to record and share their footage using the PS4, it may happen to you. This doesn’t affect the score in anyway.

Ambition mode makes a return and has been revamped for the better; while in Dynasty Warriors 8 the end goal was to build a Tongquetai Palace worthy of a visit from the emperor, this time around your overall goal is even more ambitious. Once building the Palace has been accomplished, players will set their sights on putting an end to the chaos and uniting all of Han China.

Gaining allies, fame and materials by engaging in battles is still at the core of this mode, though more strategic elements have been implemented. Players can assign their allies to be their bodyguards on the battlefield, each of them possessing a ‘support’ and ‘battle’ skills. You also order them to use these skills when you see fit. They can also be upgraded by using your allies’ knowledge. Doing so however, results in that ally becoming a free officer once more who no longer serves under you but can be recruited again should you defeat them.

When it is time to unite all of China, players must expand their territory by occupying as many strategic locations as they can. Whenever a territory is challenged by the enemy, they must defend it by defeat however many soldiers are required as well as their commanding officer. Ambition mode continues to live up to its name and is worth playing, even if you’ve already done so in the previous game. It still feels familiar but features enough new content to feel fresh as well.

Free mode, which allows you take any warrior into battle on any stage featured in story mode, has also been tweaked this time around. It now features battle objectives that gives you the chance to unlock items and earn experience points to help develop your characters. Much like in ambition mode, players can also assign up to 3 bodyguards into battle making use of their skills. After beating each stage, the game now evaluates your performance based on how long it takes you to complete it, the number of enemies you’ve defeated etc, and scores a grade between A and E. These new changes are a welcomed addition, that both encourages players to achieve a higher score and delivers a more rewarding experience.

 Lu Lingqi tearing it up on the battlefield!

To add even more replay value to this game, the popular ‘Challenge mode’ makes its return to the Dynasty Warriors series, having been left out of DW8. It features five special trials, each with their own objectives and online leaderboard rankings so you can compare your scores with friends and other players around the world. While completing in these trials players will come across Weapon Element Gems, picking them up will give their character an assist; from an increase in attack strength with the ‘Gale’ gem, to causing explosions with the ‘Conflagration’ gem and taking out large groups of enemies.

  • Rampage – Players must defeat as many enemies as they can before the timer runs out.
  • Bridge Melee – Knocking as many enemies over the edge is the name of the game in this trial.
  • Speed Run – Run to the goal at the end of the stage as quickly as possible, while doing your best to avoid countless obstacles including plenty of enemies that want you dead.
  • Arena – Simply fight against every playable warrior until you run out of health.
  • Inferno – You must defeat every single enemy in the stage before time is up.

While ‘Bridge Melee’ and ‘Speed Run’ are the least fun to play and should probably be avoided unless you want to strive for the trophies, the remaining three modes are entertaining enough.’ Arena’ is the most fun, thanks to the increasing level of challenge that comes with the lack of pickups; opponents don’t drop anything to aid you in battle except the occasional gem. So no healing, no increased stats, just all skill and maybe a little bit of luck. You can also team up with a second player in ‘Tag Team Match’ and tackle the high scores together. It is definitely a mode worth getting into.

The visuals have seen a nice little upgrade as well; improved textures, better lighting, even flashier special attacks, slightly more realistic looking face models and more detailed armor and environments. The graphics don’t scream next-gen, when compared to titles such as inFamous: Second Son or Ryse: Son of Rome but it still looks pretty good and is a step in the right direction for the series.

DynastyWarriorComparison

PS3 on the left, PS4 on the right.

The series continues to feature a pretty good soundtrack, though it won’t be to everyone’s taste. If you don’t like metal, then this game will probably make you hate it more as it constantly assaults you with it. If you do like it however then cutting your way through countless enemies will be that more exciting.

As usual the voice acting continues to be bad, with a few exceptions. While it may be a part of the series charm for many, it still lessens any impact the game attempts with its story telling, as it is difficult to take it seriously. The sound design is still pretty much the same and the dialogue during battles gets very repetitive and quickly dulls the coolness of hearing them talk through the Dualshock 4’s speakers. It is best to just turn the speakers off by the way, as you will have to deal with the controller speakers echoing the dialogue coming through your Tv speakers. Sadly the only way to avoid it is to shut it off entirely.

Final Verdict: The last Dynasty Warriors already offered a ton a replay value and Xtreme Legends Complete Edition is no different. With new what if storylines, an all new story starring the badazz Lu Bu, welcome improvements to existing modes and the revival of challenge mode, this game shows why this series continues to have such staying power. Yes it is far perfect, yes it gets repetitive but it is still undeniably fun. Any hardcore DW fan with a PS4 or plan on purchasing one should pick it up. If you own a PS4 and have never played a Dynasty Warriors title, now would be a good time to give it a shot.

Meet the new Fighters in Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends

dynasty-warriors-8-xtreme-legends-screenshot-3
