Infinity Blade 2 Reviews Are Coming in Hot!

Infinity Blade 2 Saydhi's Estate

It’s finally here! Infinity Blade 2 is slicing its way through the review circuit, and we’re definitely thrilled that people are enjoying the game as much as we do. We thought we’d share what people are saying about the sequel to Infnity Blade!

Let’s start with a lengthier excerpt from Kotaku, who does a great job showing us some of the key differences between the sequel and its predecessor:

We’re not playing successive generations of a warrior family each trying to storm the same castle this time. We’re going through a branching, altering environment, unlocking new doors and planning new paths. We’re not just swinging better and better swords. We now can dual-wield some blades or use heavy weapons, both of which enable new defensive techniques and offensive combos.

We can now specialize our weapons by adding gems that induce special effects like poison or health re-generation that is triggered during combos.

We even get a story worth caring about, as your first death introduces a twist to what these Infinity Blade games are really about. I re-played the game’s introductory level once and its main loop three times, and, each time, the changes in the enemies and/or pathways made the experience feel new.

Into Mobile says: “The king of iOS gaming continues its reign.” Which we know makes the God King happy. While The Verge lets us know “it’s the day to call in late for work because you spent all night playing Infinity Blade.”

And how about some ratings?

Infinity Blade 2 is bigger, bolder and better than before.
