In a couple of weeks a game called Kingdom Under Fire The Crusaders will hit stores for Xbox. No, it won't have Blades awesome combat system, but it should still have *A* combat system thats pretty solid. Tag that along with extremely solid graphics, xbox live support, real-time strategy elements and you've got a potential winner. From the looks of the videos we can expect some LOTR style bigass bloody brutal battles.

I just read the now magic word for me 'Xbox' in that last post (well, since family commitments and stuff stop me spending money on a new PC).

Cheers for the pointer Jqun, I'll have a look.

Edit: Just checked the web site. It's an RTS rather than a good old Hack and Slash which is what I was hoping for. Oh well. Guess I'll have to wait for Halo 2 to satisfy my desire for individual excess violence and destruction.

i would like to point to my post in other thread about game called NINJA GAIDEN.
http://www.arokhslair.net/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1676
it is XBOX only. i think it is best action game ever on any platform.
it feels and plays much like BOD.
this game was my salvation. it was actually the reason i bought XBOX.

Crawdaddy79! Hello my friend! [:)]
You are right, long time it is.
Actually, I was lurking here and there around BOD forums, desperately looking for those times when BOD and its community were at its highest point.
Maybe it was too much for me to see my favorite game and its community slowly agonizing and dying.
Damn RA, damn Codemasters, I mean we should have BOD2 by now in its full glory but…
Well, anyway I am glad so many people still love and play this game. Recently I visited Russian site dedicated to BOD and saw that BOD has really big and active Russian community. This is just great.
Do you have XBOX ? If so, I really suggest you should try NG.
Great game, I mean action in its best.
All other “similarâ€

Its not really an rts. Just rts elements. See you position your armies and tried to flank the baddies and all that good nonsense. Then you rush in and hack and slash your way through hordes of enemies controlling your heroe unit.

Take a look at the trailer and click "Other Videos" then look at the "Free Form Fighting System" video. Each is about 19MB.

Double-sword decap manoeuver looks nice. Swing round pillars, slide down curtains with your sword, throw swords... wow.

Shade looks nice but he only seems to have one sword? Apart from the fact that it glows it looks no more threatening than Ragnar's Combat Sword in BOD. Where's my 6-foot butter knife?
