IGN reviews Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War

The Hundred Years' War, the brutal, tragic conflict between England and France over claims to the French throne, is a subject greatly lauded and retold in fiction, film and (perhaps more recently) videogames. KOEI has entered the ranks of those that attempt to capture and depict these exhausting, blood-soaked times with Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War, its newest title developed by Omega Force. While it suffers from a number of serious problems that many other KOEI games face, Bladestorm is surprisingly enjoyable. Were it not for the technical and presentation-oriented flaws that plague it, this could be one of the best KOEI games IGN has seen in a while, delivering a refreshingly different experience than the Dynasty Warriors series, which has been intensely stale as of late.

Overall score: 6.5/10

It's such an interesting point in history, I might just have to rent this and give it a shot.

That review was had poor gramar, vocabulary, and use of italics. Also it doesnt really mention whats wrong with the game, it just says 'there are a lot of problems'. Last time I criticized IGN N4G deleted my comment. Lets see if it happens again.
