There's some interesting gameplay and a rewarding challenge to be found in Strength of the Sword 3, but you're going to need some serious patience to get the most out of this game.
Strength of the Sword 3 delivers a well packed, hardcore action experience for anyone who wants to prove himself.
At certain moments Strength of the Swords 3 show its interesting ideas. But at almost all of those moments the execution is lacking.
It’s never bad to reach for the stars. It’s the only way you succeed. And much like the lessons Ivent Games hopes you learn while playing their game, I hope subsequent projects from this team eliminate the small, yet serious issues presented. Strength of the Sword 3 shows incredible promise, and goes a long way towards meeting it. It’s almost there.
If you like fighting games but hate yourself a little bit, then SotS3 will be a decent addition to your collection. If you fight in much the same way Napoleon Dynamite dances then you might want to look elsewhere for something gentle like battling an angry bear in a phone box. For those hard enough to come and have a go just beating the game should squeeze enough value from the modest price.
