    While Infinity Blade II was a refinement of the original, Infinity Blade III takes the familiar Infinity Blade formula and tweaks it to the point of perfection. There's far more content, even more customization, additional systems to delve in to, and best of all, huge dragons.

    It’s packed with incredible voice acting, gorgeous visuals, and intense, rewarding combat.

    While Infinity Blade III doesn’t break any significantly fresh ground, it manages to refine everything that we’ve loved about the series to absolute perfection. As the end of a trilogy, I could think of no better way to close things out.

    Interesting story, graphics beyond comparison and an interesting mix between action and RPG. We weren’t expecting any less, and we’re not disappointed.

    With the addition of a playable female protagonist, a greatly expanded game world, collectible ingredients for enhancement potions, and a richer storyline, Infinity Blade III retains all of the fantastic elements of the first two offerings while managing to improve in fun new ways. We’ll be quite disappointed if this truly is Infinity Blade’s swan song, as each iteration has been decidedly better than its predecessor.

    Infinity Blade III is proof that some of the best RPGs can actually be downloaded to a smart phone or better yet, your iPad.

    The spectacular visuals, addictive combat and wealth of collectibles make it another quality addition to Chair's growing portfolio.

    Despite these disappointments, I still enjoyed my wildly addicted time with the game, constantly tweaking my gear to gain every advantage. Even after the review I still find myself lured back for that second time through the campaign searching for gold and rare loot.

    The final chapter of the saga is also the best so far. Chair managed to transform Infinity Blade in a huge adventure, maintaining combat system fun and easy to master. Nevertheless it's time for the best good looking game on iOS to evolve its formula and improve the gameplay.

    With its gorgeous graphics and huge amount of content, Infinity Blade III sure is a great deal for its price: however, not all of the new features work accordingly, making this final chapter somewhat less enjoyable than expected.

    Great graphics and a unique atmosphere are the best features of this adventure. Infinity Blade III lacks the novelty and wow-factor found on its previous chapters, but nonetheless it´s a fantastic game.

    The riveting growth of the handheld market in general means we're not as blown away by the third Infinity Blade game as we'd expected we'd be, but it's still a solid game with the potential to become the best of the series.

    Infinity Blade III caps off the epic franchise in a largely dazzling manner, though the repetitive nature of the series resonates more strongly than ever.

    Infinity Blade III is a should buy for one deluxe iOS experience that can be repetitive at times, but still is an overall enjoyable, engaging, and entertaining experience.

    Though its grindier moments don't completely gel with its level-based structure, Infinity Blade III is a handsome and often thrilling end to a landmark series.

    It looks stunning, but repetitive play and a higher focus on gear sullies the experience. [Dec 2013, p.76]

    Infinity Blade III continues to set the standard for iOS graphics, but it's time for Chair to improve the gameplay as well.

    Infinity Blade III is a visually stunning "more of the same" game. Its philosophy is becoming too old for a game that now is more than a simple castle to explore, and the combat mechanics are still based on the old “swipe & tap” scheme.

    Infinity Blade III's new additions fail to improve on the well-worn formula.

    The primal joys of a perfect parry followed by a killing blow against a hulking monster mean that Infinity Blade 3 was always going to be good fun where it counts. But between distracting feature creep and the inclusion of in-app purchases just because everyone else is using them, it feels like a game that exists more to serve a publishing agenda than an essential closing chapter in a coherent trilogy.

    A rather disappointing end to such a ground-breaking trilogy, where all the bold new ideas seem very much at odds with the core gameplay.

    With Infinity Blade 3, Chair turns the thrilling sword-fighting series into a huge adventure. The reliance on frequent deaths and forced grinding, however, is an infuriating relic from previous games.

    Infinity Blade 3, strong because of outstanding sales, remains perched on his positions: the result is a game that does not arouse any particular enthusiasm.

    Such bloat is indicative of a game that's constrained by the limitations of its original design where additional features intended to expand the experience simply don't gel with its combat.

    Infinity Blade 3 offers more of the same for fans, but the constant grinding is showing its age the third time around.

    Infinity Blade 3 has a dark side; a noticeable lack of variety and an inconsistent difficulty. It’s worth the price for genre and series fans, but tread carefully if you’re a newbie.

    Playable, yes, but nothing new. [Issue#141, p.110]

    We have to expect more from mobile gaming in the modern age. Infinity Blade is a tech demo from 2010 to all intents and purposes and it is simply lazy that the same restrictive gameplay is still present by the third installment. Many games on ios are using the same engine but putting into a full game! The use of iap on a paid app is borderline criminal, especially as you are paying premium price for the app. Non-stop grinding becomes dull and repetitive. Swipe, swipe, tap, tap repeat! Ironically for a game with such good visuals it is really showing its age now! 3 out of 10 as it looks pretty! Full Review »

    Infinity Blade III is made by perfect hands. The game is awesome: graphics good, soundtrack is awesome and the game is just madness.
    The

    This is a perfect closing to the trilogy. Infinity Blade is by far my favorite series on the iOS and it has very high standards. The quality of these games never ceases to amaze me. They took every aspect from the original two games and perfected it. The game is an absolutely MUST have. If you have $6.99 to spare, don't hesitate to buy, you will not regret it. I can't name a single bad thing about this game, it is the best iOS game to date. If you want amazing visuals, fast paced action with a wide variety of weapons, adventure, the most in depth story for a series on the AppStore and hours upon hours of fun, GET THIS GAME!!! 10/10 hands down.
