From a visual standpoint, Bladestorm is certainly better looking than the Playstation ports Koei previously spewed out on to the 360. Bladestorm is a very good game and it manages to breathe new life into a series that was getting extremely stale. It was a gamble to make some of the changes and it certainly paid off. The wealth of content more than makes up for the average graphics, and those looking for an action/strategy hybrid should absolutely get lost in the Hundred Year's War. It might actually take that long to finish it.
