Infinity Blade 2 is the much sought after sequel of Infinity Blade (the original). Programmers have taken the iPhone and iPad’s graphics capability to a new level using the all famous Unreal graphics engine. Infinity Blade 2 is similar in play style to Infinity Blade, which has a semi turn based, swipe and tap game style. If you are looking for amazing graphics and a fairly alluring sound track, look no further. Infinity Blade 2 incorporates a kind of serious and mysterious fun that can hardly be matched. If you find yourself immersed within the Infinity Blade 2 realm, the soundtrack, book and first Infinity Blade game can be purchased from within the app as well.
The first several levels of Infinity Blade 2 start out with a quick and fun tutorial. The game then spurs into its own explorative story line, throughout levels getting progressively harder as you play! Through the store within the game you can purchase and upgrade your current items. If you get stuck or just plain want the best gear, currency can be purchased from the in-game store, through the App Store (iTunes).
Infinity Blade 2 Walkthrough:
This game is quite interesting but can also be frustrating. One thing everyone wonders is about the vault with the various weapons / gear in it, and how to open it. To open each door, there is a weapon on the front. You must purchase or find that weapon in order to open what is behind it. There are some amazing pieces of gear inside each one. Learning defense is an obvious route for survival. Depending on what weapon type you want to use. With two handed weapons you only have the ability to block left right or center, and parry. This means with un-blockable attacks (which yes they do exist, for example shield attacks) you will still take some damage. So if you want to play with a two handed weapon for great damage, having a high health pool is essential. If you play with sword and shield you’ll need to master dodging, blocking and parrying. Dodging is the only way to avoid un-blockable attacks. If you want to use dual-wield, then you will have to learn how to dodge effectively and parry.
Graphics: Amazing. Only way to describe it. I was not prepared to see how much a phone/tablet could do with this game, but honestly, wow.
Sound/Music: Amazing. This also impressed me, there is an original score soundtrack which is very good, almost good enough to purchase (which it is available for purchase in iTunes).
Pros: This is a great all around game, and well thought out. Played this one for quite a while as you can see by screen shots.
Cons: Price. This game obviously took time to make and plan out. Especially with the sound track and high grahpics. It’s pricey, but still worth it.
Addiction level: Very High. But for good reason, it’s just a gorgeous game.
