Infinity Blade

Originally posted on The Media and Computer Blog by Brad.

Infinity Blade is an RPG fighter using the Unreal 3 game engine.

Story ( 7/10)
When the game starts out there is a cutscene of a battle between the main character's father and the King of Gods (I know... it's a lame name). The main character's father loses the battle against the King of Gods, and 20 years later his son comes back for revenge. Getting to the King of Gods isn't too hard, but chances are that you will die the first time you fight him. Once you die, you come back as the son of the main character, which starts a new bloodline (basically just restarting the game). Every time you die, you come back as the previous character's son. This system does feel very repetitive, but is still enjoyable.

Gameplay (10/10)
The gameplay is great, especially for an iPhone game. The Unreal 3 engine makes the game especially enjoyable. You can swipe the screen to attack. You can also block attacks with the shield or dodge them by pressing the dodge or shield button at the right time. There are power ups, such as magic and an ability that makes your attacks stronger. The better armor you get, the more powerful your character becomes.

Graphics (10/10)

The graphics in this game are astonishing for a game developed for the iPhone. The graphics make the game very exhilarating and it looks like it was developed for the PlayStation 2 (I know that's outdated for a console, but for the iPhone it's amazing). Even with the great graphics, there are still almost no frame rate issues. You will not be disappointed with the graphics in this game.

Overall, if you want to buy a new app and you have an extra $5.99 to spare, then I highly recommend buying this game. The game is great and very addicting. The average score is a 9 out of 10.  Thanks for reading!
