You can't go wrong with IB - one of the coolest games built for iPhone with sick graphics and hours of fun.
OK, I don't download a lot of first-person-shooters, but I was bored one day, and they had a 99 cent sale on this game, so, I bought it. It has great graphics, a passible storyline, game play is responsive and they start you off with a nice tutorial. But after you've gone toe to toe with a couple of hammer and sword swinging trolls, it all gets pretty tedious and repetitive. I lost interest in about two hours.
Infinity Blade is one of those apps that you download to show off just how impressive iPhones and iPads are these days. It’s a good job that along with its amazing graphics that are easily on par with an Xbox 360 videogame the gameplay is also a really fun. Rather than cramming a horrible console control type system the developers use simple swipes to make you feel like an awesome medieval warrior.
Infinity Blade is one of the most Revolutionary Application pushing your iOS device to it's limits. The visual graphics are astonishing and will blow your mind!. This is a new type of on-rails game, instead of moving you to the next position directly, most of the time you have to option to visit a new area and find hidden treasures. The fighting combat style is quite intriguing and wants you to come back for more. I would recommend this app who loves action and amazing graphics. At a low $2.99 price point it is very affordable and is cheap than its older brother.
This game really impressed me as a used-to-be-core-gamer. Its graphics representation is simply awesome. The gameplay is repetitive, but improving the skills and equipments keeps one motivated. The recent update with the Multiplayer Mode via Game Center adds a new dimension: In a duel one player takes control over the monster and the other over the knight.
I play this on an original iPad and I'm amazed that they can get the device to sing like this. It's gorgeous, and the game is engrossing and fun and wastes way too much of my vegetative time.
Note that it's not an RPG; there is minimal story and not much strategy component. It's a lot of swordfighting and dodging and blocking. But it's very well done, so that's fun.
They pushed a major content update last month that expanded the game a lot, and they plan to do more of them in the future. That's a great bonus.
I kept it from 5 stars because it still crashes often enough that it's frustrating. I hope they're watching their crash logs and will improve that issue with diligence.
If you are into great action and detailed graphics, this game is a must have. The developers of this game satisfied my craving and transformed me to an iPad gamer.
Still, the "game" portion of the game could be done better, but it's right up the alley of those who liked classic games like Street Fighter, which is really not that different. The visuals are nothing less than stunning on a retina display and the game, while fairly repetitive, is fun, but not as much fun as the visual candy is to look at.
Aside the blindingly polished 3D gfx, Infinity Blade boasts simple, utterly enjoyable gameplay.
I've always found sword-fighting dissatisfying in computer games. Within Infinity Blade, we finally have a game that lets the player dodge, parry, stab, defend and even cast spells intuitively, with a half-decent feel of what it'd be like --- and that's about as close as any game will ever get to the real thing, right?
My main regret is that the AI is somewhat too linear. When your opponent is idle, you simply NEVER get a chance to get through their guard, and they never seem to get weak, tired or register their wounds.
Some will pooh-pooh this long awaited title for the lack of scope and content, maybe rightly. But the gameplay's great, and the beautiful CG will shut the mouth of arrogant console owners. Yay.
