Thread: Epic Games Releases Infinity Blade

  1. #1
    Default Epic Games Releases Infinity Blade


    Epic Games has released Infinity Blade ($5.99), a visual treat based on the Epic Citadel tech demo that was released a few months ago. Epic Citadel allowed players to walk through a beautiful medieval castle, but the app lacked any game play. It was more of a showcase for the Unreal Engine 3, running on iOS. Now Epic has polished that demo and Infinity Blade is the result.

    Infinity Blade has a simple story, “For untold ages, the God King has ruled with an iron fist - his power is incalculable; his followers, legion. Now you must journey to the Dark Citadel to battle his Titans, one by one, until you face the tyrant himself.”

    Epic has released this version of the app as a single player game for now, but states that future updates will include “a fully integrated multiplayer mode, which enables players to battle friends and other players online via Game Center.” Battles are fought using swiping motions on screen and players can attack, dodge, block and cast spells.

    Infinity Blade is an “on rails” type of game, so the freedom of movement that was present in Epic Citadel is not available here. Much of the game play consists of battles followed by movie cuts scenes, leading to more battles. Once the player gets used to the dazzling visuals, the game play can become somewhat repetitive, however. Infinity Blade is a gorgeous game, but diehard RPG fans may be a little disappointed with the thin RPG elements and the relatively short game play.



    Infinity Blade has the best graphics of any iOS game currently available in the App Store. Even though the game play may not be what people were expecting, don’t let that stop you from enjoying this visually stunning game. Infinity Blade is a solid game, it’s just not as free roaming as Epic Citadel.

    This is a universal app so it will run on the third generation (or higher) iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad as well. Because the game is such a visual treat, however, the graphics will look best on an iPhone 4’s retina display or on an iPad’s larger screen. Most game developers charge a premium for an iPad version, so it’s nice to see Epic release only one universal version of the game. Hopefully, Infinity Blade will be the first of many impressive games to come from Epic.

    Simply, it's an Epic game.

    Its definitely a time killer. Its the same thing over and over again until you're leveled up enough to defeat the God King. Huge repetition and really no challenge. Its just pretty looking. I'm wondering how they'll incorporate multiplayer though.

    Whats the performance like on the iPhone 3GS?

    Graphics are really solid, but gameplay is repetitive.

    Looks like a game changer. This should make them all look at iOS as a real gaming platform. MUST have a plug in controller though. Fingers in the way of the screen just doesn't cut it.

    Is the demo of this game the one Apple is using for it's iPad commercials? If not, what game is that?
    Just fighting the Socialist with Jailbreak...

    Looks great, but this showcases the limitations of the platform more than the game. I'm pretty sure they were forced to limit gameplay as they did due to limitations of the hardware platform. They couldn't create the kind of open world they wanted to, the hardware just can't handle it.
