Blades of Fury

Gameloft is kicking much butt right now. This weapon-based Soul Calibur clone came out the same week as Modern Combat: Sandstorm. Whatever they are putting in the water cooler, I want it. The game primarily uses a 2-button control scheme, with a third for specials, but you can freely orbit around the opponent, charge, duck, jump, dodge, pop up, and juggle. Pretty ambitious, but I have to say they did pull it off. The controls are very good. There are 10 characters, 10 arenas, 5 game modes, achievements, and unlockables. The graphics and effects are really good. I don’t really have any complaints, other than the fact that Soul Calibur isn’t my favorite fighting game to clone. : ) Oh and no multiplayer…c’mon!!!
