I'm also on the look-out for more BoD style games- Conan sounds quite cool as does Enclave! Noticed that alot of people are against Rune! In my opinion it's a great game- really smooth gameplay and amazing atmosphere! The combat system is a bit more basic than the likes of BoD, but it makes for great multiplayer games- tres fast n furious!

Has anyone played Die By the Sword? Any good?

Rune's combat system is not just more basic. It's nonexistant and thats why we hate it. It's the equivelant of running around with a crowbar in half-life (IE: Lame and not thought out at all). Also the multiplayer sucks. Check your skill at the door for Rune, just run around jump like crazy and keep clicking that mouse. Anyhow while not being at all like BoD, Knights of The Infernal Crusades is kinda cool in its own way (and the interface blows, yes I know). Plus it has pretty neat and spiffy gfx (I guess I also have a thing for the crusades I suppose). The next BoD? I dont think there will be one unless someone makes a mod for Doom3 or Half-life2 thats specifically aimed at recreating BoD. I'd do it with significant help.

Hello people. Just joined the forums tho I think I was on here back when Blade first came out. Anyhow I played Rune and liked it but Blade Of Darkness is a much better game. Same goes for Enclave, which I think is a fun game and id rather replay Enclave than do the Rune thing again. Anyhow I started to replay Blade and I love it and was looking for anouther Blade like game. I don't know if anybody mentioned Dungeon Lords, but it looks promising. Now I have no idea if it'll satisfy Blade fans or if it'll be anything like Blade. I did read it's supposed to be a hack and slasher with quests and lots of RPG elements.... NPC's and the like, plus its 3rd person. Here is a linkage to some screens. http://www.3dgamers.com/screenshots/games/dungeonlords/

Theres also the official site that doesn't always load properly for me. http://www.dungeonlords.com/
Theres also this site: http://www.dungeonlordsgame.com/main.php
Not sure now why there seems to be 2 sites that look official.... heh.

Hopefully it'll have lots of good hacking even if it's nothing like Blade. By the way the demo is due out on Sept 1st. I for one am going to check it out. :) Lets hope it doesn't suck, have dumb controls or have ****ty camera that flys around like a retarded piece of rubbish.

I have looked at Prince of Persia 2 it seem to be darker than the 1st one, there is also a bit of blood, decapitation cuting bodys, double sword combat, lots of moves, manny things to discover, playing with the time... Really good game, and I encourage you guys to see those trailers... Have fun!

Hard to tell anything from that trailer. Oh well, we'll see when the demo comes out. ;)

Speaking of Conan: The Dark Axe... is that gonna be published in North America? Meh.

"Knights of the Temple" (today I downloaded the demo) could have been great (no match for immortal BOD, of course), but I've never seen such a bad camera movement. [xx(] + [:(!] + [}:)] + [V]

The total console conversion. Really annoying. Though the animations are quite good. But unfortunately just another mouse-click-combat-"system".

Wouldn't it have been much easier to programm a camera like Rune or BOD has instead if defining EACH single room clumsily for its own ??? I can't understand this.
The combos system seem to be a bit better than annoying Rune, but no match for glorious BOD.

If it had a camera like Rune I would rate it 85%. So I rate it 5%.

Enclave is just another stupid console crap.

The people complaining about BoD not having a strafe key don't know how good they have it.

There IS some rudimentary strafing in BOD... (more a side-jump; good for evading arrows)

Enclave was better than Rune though (not hard I know), and at least they *tried* to have a combat system (although I couldn't figure out how to do anything besides mouse-mashing). You have to appreciate the gfx though, Enclave is top-notch.

How dare you to give the hint to such a quite promising game that seems to be for CONSOLE only [:D] + [}:)]
What a pity. Looks very impressing.

This video looks also awful.
BUT I WILL NEVER BUY A CONSOLE OR A GAME FOR IT.
No mods, no extensions, no nothing... but a stupid controller.
