Congratulations to Studio 3DO and to 3DO owners. Bladeforce is your exclusive snub in the direction of the overly chatty and opinionated competing system owners. Repeat after me, "Only on 3DO." Has a nice ring, doesn't it?
This game would have been very easy for Studio 3DO to phone in, but from the very start of the game you can tell that the programmer's took time to craft a unique and quality experience. Blade Force, by Studio 3do, is a must own for the 3do.
It's got incredible 3-D, it's long, it controls well and each level is a game unto itself. Bladeforce is as impressive a 3DO game as I have ever seen. However, I do have one problem...staring at that heli-beany is driving me whacko! What happened to the behind the pilot mode? This point of view grows tiresome after extended play and believe me, this is extended play! BF's a little light on combat, but heavy on strategic shooting. Overall, the game is well polished and will surely please hungry 3DO'ers.
A slightly irregular view dominates BladeForce, and the sound of explosions and a rockin' cannon will keep you on the edge of your seat - or ducking behind it.

The missions get repetitive at times and more interaction with the boss characters would have been done a lot more for me, but the package Studio 3DO has delivered is fairly well rounded and a must purchase for 3DO owners.
Bladeforce is a difficult game where only the best shooters will succeed at saving the City of Meggagrid. I found the game to be extremely challenging, and it may be too much for those who are not shootem-up enthusiasts.
Un vrai plaisir que de piloter ce héros volant. Mais que de difficultés ! Un shoot'em up réservé aux amateurs de 3D.

Unfortunately, the Crisco-smooth graphics are let down by the boring weapons and the enemies and we all know that awesome weapons are the best part of a shooter. Still, between the heaps of gameplay and the secret goodies, there's a good 20 hours of fun here, which is better than the current wave of "beat-it-in-a-day" Playstation titles.
Finally, I'd rather go with Star Fighter before any of Studio 3DO's titles, but all are still enjoyable. But, if you're into a long and challenging shooter with plenty of ground based destruction, check out Blade Force.
Los Angeles heeft plaats gemaakt voor de technologisch geavanceerde futuristisch ogende megalopolis Meggagrid. Het is er niet echt gezellig, een perfecte achtergrond voor een knalspel dus. Jammer als het spel dan niet zo goed is uitgewerkt.
