  Hundred Swords
Let me just start off by saying that “Hundred Swords”, made by Sega, is one of the best games I’ve played in a very long time. Intriging story line, colorfull characters, great gameplay combine to make this one killer title. It’s so good, in fact, that I lost track of time while playing it a number of times. The game does a fantastic job of combining the aspects of an action game, a strategy game, and a role playing game all into one package.

Hundred Swords gives you control of four vastly unique and different nations. They are reffered to as the Mascar’s, the Rulpustorie, the people of the Gran, and the kingdom of Nalavale. Firstly, the kingdom of Nalavale specializes in fast attacks with their mobile horses. The Mascar's strong infantry makes them ideal for close combat. The Ruplustorie's archers are the best for attacking from long range using their bows and arrows. And finally, the people of Gran are adept at magic and their wizards are incredibly mysterious and powerful.

During the opening moments of the game it starts very simply not getting into some of the deeper elements of the game untill much later. You move your characters around strategically and take out the enemy as quickly as possible. But as the game progresses more and more elements are added to the game making the learning curve relatively easy. Eventually you begin building barrack’s, harvesting materials, and gaining special weapons. The enemies also grow stronger and smarter as you venture deeper and deeper into the game giving the Hundred Swords a rare combination of a short learning curve and a challenging campaign.

Hundred Swords is definitely one of the best games I’ve played this year if not the best
