Shadow Blade: Reload reviews and comments

A fun time to just run and slash a bit
Escalates a bit too hard but a good bit of fast fun

Good Game about Ninja. At the beginning even seems quite Cossack (although I did not choose the difficulty), but at the end a little bombed. Overall, nice graphics. Most of the gameplay-it does all sorts of acrobatic stunts, overcoming obstacles. Well because of the fairly convenient control in general play nice. I thought, once the game about ninja, it will be difficult. And No, that's when convenient control, and played well. There are some interesting bosses, the plot even some is present. Many pictures were drawn in the style of comics when discovering history. That is, you can see that the labor in the game is not enough. In General, nothing surprising in the game is not or something like that. But, quite a pleasant "acrobatic" platformer. Moderately difficult, that is, the normal level of difficulty to play quite normal, nothing unreal difficult, in any case for me, not. I Bought at retail for 5 or 7 rubles, I do not remember exactly. Well in any case pennies. And then it costs as much as 349 rubles.

The Price is worth it. A classic Ninja Action Game That has great Graphics. Varied Level designs and interesting good Opponents. Played it through completely and it entertained me well for a few Hours.

Control worse than the Original; Buttons cannot be changed. Ruckarts Sporadic, which is frustrating. Statistics confusing, etc. No significant Changes after the last Update, but the Game Score is gone. Generally deleted. Prefer to Buy the original Version.

The games to the advantage of being very successful and quite addictive unfortunately, it also has the particularity of blocking on the loading, I was about half the career when my games to finally plant and 1 month after nothing to do there I have several times try to reinstalled but c is still the same problem

Shadow Blade entertained me wonderfully. Is a bit difficult sometimes, but somehow you always get through the Level. Graphic Style, Atmosphere and Setting fit perfectly. The Story is told in comic format, and quite handsomely. I cannot understand The Criticism of the Control. Shruckled also has nix on iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6S. Would I buy again at any time!

Although beautiful and beautiful game play. To finish the levels you just have to pass the obstacles once the technique gained no difficulty in passing the level. We don't even have to kill the enemies to get through. Just the bosses require a little level. And we acquire no power during the game. Gameplay a little random knowing that the buttons do not sound accurate. We want to go to the right but in the end we go left. Here are the negative points. Otherwise beautiful graphics. Nice work.

This type of game is really based on tight game control and there is something missing. Usually it works fine but some things are situationsstyrda, most clearly when doing wall jumps. This means that you can't really feel the 100% control and sometimes happen to die because the game does something unexpected with the ninja. The Game creators have wanted to get into a little too much in this game to try to develop it from what eg League of Evil is. But it results in gamplay that is not completely reliable and creates a feeling that you never really know what the ninja will find. Great game but with basic flaws that make me not going to make sure to get S rating on all tracks.
