Suits and Swords



    Suits and Swords's review

    Published: 2014-01-27, by Peter Warrior.

    A RPG-ish wonderquest in blackjack-land

    • Very original
    • Suited for all ages
    • No multiplayer
    • Technical performance should be improved
    • Artwork could be far better

    "Don't split spades and stand at twenty."

    Contrary to what it may appear, Sony's Suits and Swords isn't about tuxedo Hungarian fencing; but about clubs, spades, cuirasses and claymores. Oh, and magic.

    In a somehow distant cousin of Alice's Wonderland, the Joker has rebelled against the deck and making use of black magic has changed and controlled everyone else's mind. You play the role of the on-duty hero to free the kingdom and make justice and fairness prevail.

    In order to do so, you have to challenge and defeat everyone. And it happens that battles are solved by an original and innovative fighting system called... blackjack. You play blackjack against your foes and every play you win, you get to harm them, getting hurt otherwise. This game's very faithful to blackjack rules, you can even split and so, but also adds some faerie stuff in the form of spells to change an outcome, and items to improve your prowess or armor.

    The campaign is quite long, with side quests and all, but it's a shame there isn't any multiplayer mode. Whatsoever, it's a very original and easy to learn game, whose major flaws are that cartoon graphics may be not of your liking (and this game deserved better in-game artwork) and animations are poor, to put it mildly.

    Anyway, a great twist to casino games, making of it a great and more interesting blackjack game for kids and anyone. Recommended, and nobody should be struck if we see a trend starting here.
