  Blaze and Blade
Blaze and Blade is an interesting game. The story line is typical for an RPG type style. You first start out with no characters in your team so you have to create some. There are a total of 8 to choose from. You can have as many as you like but only four characters at a time in your team.

Once you get your characters, you start out on the journey. At first your characters are at level 1 and so you have to build your levels up by fighting the little creatures, which get more challenging as you go along. It’s also a good idea to look very carefully, while keeping an eye on your team.

The installation of the game was fast and easy. The loading time depends on the speed of your computer. So the faster the computer the faster it loads in.

The way that this game is setup reminds me of the way that Final Fantasy VII plays. Both games are setup so that you can only change your characters or save the game at save points or the world map. The only thing the manual lacks was any explanation on how to save. Even in the game there is no hint of which button to use to save your place, so, while playing, keep your eyes open or you'll missed it too.

The one feature that I found annoying is the way everyone follows each other for example, if you walk off a cliff or a bridge your whole team follows you like lemmings. One thing that is neat is you can change to a birds eye-view right around to a full 360

The basic concept of the game is to enter the "Forbidden" land. There is a legend that in this land there are great treasures, yet all that enters never leaves the land. So throughout the game you have to keep an eye out for creatures appearing from every direction. Don’t worry if you kill one of your comrades just continue on your journey and he/she will be back in your party, but with little health.
