Bladeslinger has a great premise, a great setting and a thoughtful, effective combat system. Its camera and unbalanced power-ups are a bummer, but neither prevented me from enjoying the frightful and intense adventure.
True, the gorgeous visuals certainly warrant consideration (especially on newer iOS hardware), and the battle system is filled with potential, but the controls are a huge black mark on the entire experience.
Bladeslinger looks so promising, but never taps into its potential. It’s one of the best looking games in the App Store, but the gameplay is rudimentary at best with other restrictions sprinkled in, sadly making it one to skip.
