Ratings and Reviews
Perfect for mobile
I've played this for awhile now. I also read all the reviews where people are saying is boring or hard around level 9. Here's the deal, this game is awesome if played correctly I'm currently level 24, with my town about level 7 ( just a bit under ), I don't know if people are not building their towns up, but that actually expands the game, brings in new missions, upgrading shops gives better options to craft or buy with in game currency. Early on when things are easy upgrade your inventory slots and chest capacity with the free premium gems they give you ( I get a lot free fighting in the dungeons) I have over 700 now, never bought anything. Time your chest timers around your work day, open gold while you sleep, never run into waiting issues. As far as combat and complaining about dying, here's a tip get the healing dodge and upgrade it, choose your talents and perks wisely, craft health absorbing armor and jewelry, with the right loadout, and proper potion planning, no quest is too difficult, the challenging ones are harder because they're supposed to be, you'll have a wonderful feeling of accomplishment when they drop a free legendary chest on you.
I'm level 24, all eleven gear, rings and necklace, usually have 15-20 various chests to cycle through, over 700 premium gems saved up from free drops, haven't spent a dime of real life currency.
Play smart play often, this is an unbelievable free offering from the elder scrolls franchise!!!!
I played for a month before writing this review because I understand it is still a beta release, Blades, in my opinion is by far the best game on a cellphone and trust me that I should be a critic I have played and deleted thousands of games.
With all that being said Blades has amazing graphics that I would expect on a console, the gameplay is amazingly polished especially because you can tell they are improving it daily, when I first started Blades would shut down or freeze every so often (once a day) and now I cannot remember the last time that has happened.
The pace of the game seems perfect to me as some days I don’t have as much time I will open the treasure chests and construct new buildings in my city and on the days I want to grind for gold, material or weapons etc etc... Blades surely lets me decide my own pace.
I believe Bethesda is by far the best game developing company ever to make games so this is not a impartial review, I already knew I would love this game as I have from everything they have ever released.
So far the only thing I would like added to Blades is the ability to change between first person and third person as so many of Bethesda games have done in the past, it is amazing that this game is free because I dropped many other games off of my phone, Blades is all I need. Thank you Bethesda and also a thanks goes out to whoever read this book I just wrote.
Mobile Skyrim, and free!
The tight, fluid, and precise nature of the game, tactical combat, and smooth and beautiful graphics alludes fondly to Bethesda’s masterpiece console game Skyrim, and being free and ad-less only adds to the perfection of Blades. Combat is quick and easy to learn, but is greatly rewarding to strategic and observant players. Enemies seem to have great intelligence and different monsters follow different patterns of attack which attentive players will learn to watch out for. I’ve been disconnected a couple of times, but this doesn’t delete your progress and is to be expected as the game is in Early Access. The overall story is quite good, and my only real gripe is with the voice acting, which is incomplete at the moment and somewhat uninteresting, but I have faith that this will improve with future updates. The content at present is deep and will keep you occupied for hours, and the Abyss, the game’s endless dungeon crawler mode supports this. I would love to see more content as of new, creative enemies and especially more areas, as currently there are only 5 or 6. A dark, snowy forest variant, perhaps? A battle atop the walls of a fortress? Other fleshed out towns of enemy bandits? In any case, the game seems to be being actively updated and is sure to get better and better. If you like RPGs, dungeon crawlers, roguelikes, or any such games, this is something you’re sure to love. Thanks for reading!
