    The distinctive sights and sounds are worth the effort.

    Like a fevered nightmare trip through the covers of 70s prog-rock bands and classic pulp-fiction, God of Blades is a beautifully presented and other-worldly experience, but is likewise just as short-lived as you expend its limited content and variety of combat.

    The thing that stands out the most about this game is the beautiful artwork.

    As the studio name suggests, this is a game design team that's in love with books, and so it's amongst books that its first offering reveals its true potential.

    Using light RPG elements and simple gestures to vanquish enemies one-by-one, God of Blades is a satisfying adventure.

    It's just a shame that, for all this graphical and aural stimulation, the fighting mechanics are so basic.

    A relentlessly stylish sensory assault that's so in tune with its underlying mechanics that it works, despite the game's obvious flaws.
