Conan-like sidescrollers of yore such as Rastan Saga and Golden Axe bequeath a large inheritance to games coming many years before. One of such would be this God of Blades, which gathers la crème de la crème of the 2D sidescrolling genre features and adds a few from its own assortment.
Animations are gorgeous, although it won't be the new Prince of Persia, it's something other games games can only dream of. Likewise, GoB character creation can't compete with PC RPGs, but it's rather good taking into account it's an arcade. Graphics are also eye-catching, and it's appreciated that White Whale Games didn't play the retro card on this bet.
Therefore, no matter what kind of games you like most, this 2D sidescroller, stuffed with an epic storyline and an awesome technical performance, will be a must have for casual and hardcore players alike.
