    While it's packed with old-school hack and slash action, Blackwind's lack of variety and lackluster mechanics leave a lot to be desired.

    Ultimately, Blackwind is very much a budget experience. If you go in knowing what to expect however, there’s a lot of fun to be had here. Its combat is competent and engaging, there’s a solid upgrade tree to work your way through, and solving puzzles to explore its environments adds a little more variety to the mix. Its environments lack any real excitement, however, and it’s missing a spark of innovation. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t provide enough entertainment for those looking for some basic action.

    Have you ever wondered, how playable would be a mixture of James Cameron's story from Avatar and God of War's hack & slash mechanics? Because Blackwind offers you just this experience, wrapped in a janky camera, poor voice acting and borderline boring gameplay. Oh, and there are cool mech suits too.

    In the shooting phase, Drakkar's game provides satisfaction despite a repetitive level design and a poor variety of enemies. However, the biggest flaw of Blackwind is given by a control and framing system which, especially in the external areas, seriously risks creating frustration. The effort to create, with the platform sections, a diversion from the usual unbridled action is appreciable, unfortunately the realization was not up to par.

    Blackwind has the right incredients for an engaging and challenging game, but the lack of proper difficulty balance and camera frustrations prevent it from hitting the right marks.
