Het feit dat dit game er niet echt fantastisch uitziet, klinkt of speelt betekent dat je Hundred Swords niet echt kan aanraden aan ervaren real-time strategiegamers die op zoek zijn naar de volgende Starcraft. Maar de unieke stijl en het grootse verhaal maken het wel de moeite waard voor gamers met een voorliefde voor de 'Japanse' benadering van het genre en voor wie op zoek is naar iets 'anders'.

The fact that it doesn't look, sound, or even play all that great means you couldn't wholeheartedly recommend Hundred Swords to fans of conventional real-time strategy games. But the game's unique style and epic story, along with its low retail price, make it worth checking out for anyone who's played and enjoyed other Japanese games or anyone looking to try something different.

100 swords is al met ale een aardige title, die toch niet overdreven veel voldoening geeft. Goed verhaal met verfrissende ideeën die beter uitgewerkt hadden moeten worden.

As I said before, this game is really only for those who saw Hundred Swords get released in Japan and were sort of curious about it, but couldn’t play the game because they wouldn’t understand what the hell is going on due to the language barrier. The big PC RTS franchises simply destroy this game in terms of quality, even the older ones, but if you’ve never played those games and don’t intend to it’ll make this game a lot more enjoyable. In some ways ignorance is bliss after all.

Trotz Speicherverbots können Sie sämtliche Simpel-Schlachten problemlos schlagen, der Snack- Effekt lockt einen immer mal wieder vor den Bildschirm. Schwer vermurkst sind dagegen die miserable 3D-Grafik (Nebel!) und die stümperhafte Einheiten-KI. Wie sagte schon Konfuzius: Wer umsetzt von Konsolen, den soll der Teufel holen.

Liebe Sega-Manager, auch wir trauern dem ausbleibenden Erfolg eurer letzten Konsole nach. Verständlich, dass ihr jetzt unbedarften PC-Jüngern einige Spieleperlen aus dem umfassenden Dreamcast-Archiv nahe bringen wollt. Nur, dürfen wir euch daran erinnern, dass Hundred Swords nie zu besagten Schmuckstücken gehört hat? Für die Gates'schen Fensterlgeräte gibt es so schöne Programme wie Empire Earth, Age of Empires 2 oder Stronghold.
