BLADESTORM: NIGHTMARE (PS4/XONE) - OUT NOW

If you’re looking for a uniquely different strategy within the fascinating setting of the Hundred Years War – then this is something well worth sharpening your blade for.

It might only be a glossier version of the original game on the 360/PS3 – with some new fantasy-influenced modes and a HD coating – but there’s an endearing quality as your mercenary leads an army of either English or French persuasion, set during the 1337-1453 conflict.

Fans of the genre will find its progression system rewarding with the right amount of effort in this tactical hack n’slasher – as long as you can get past the last-gen feel – which has too much charm to be a gaming bad dream.

Rating: 3/5
