 Blades of Exile Review @ GU - Page 4
 June 29th, 1999 by Chris "Stories" Kim

Controls are excellent for the most part. You have the option of keyboard or mouse. Both can do the job perfectly well, just keyboard is a bit faster, but will require you to learn all the hotkey commands using letters and numbers. Using the keypad for movement is ideal as you'll want to move diagonally and sideways simultaneously. Each command comes with a hotkey including each and everyone of the spells (~80 for each type!). Only problem is, again, lack of configurability. The game's interface is perfect and nothing else can really be done to improve it. The load/save feature is flawless and easy to use. Each of the menus can also be used as buttons that serve in the game for spells, actions, etc.

The storyline of course will be very unique to each of the scenarios, but the storylines that are included in the original game are excellent and engaging. They will keep you wanting to learn more and more about each of the events and why something has happened to this once happy nation. Each of the stories (hey, my nickname!) are very unique and have a totally different appeal. They will keep you hooked and will be stories remembered.

More Battle
