No. Just no. I've downloaded it on release and have hardly EVER played a game with a WORSE legacy and dub. The Metacritic average of 63 on PC is extremely generous, especially considering it does only stand out due to the lack of comparable titles on the platform. The PS3/X360 scores are in the low 50s, and thats much more accurate. While I usually ignore Metacritic altogether, especially "professional" scores, in this case it is fairly accurate.
The game feels uninspired, the combat is bland, the controls are unprecise (and believe me, I've hooked up my DualShock2 just to try how it performs with a gamepad - no better.
The voice acting is especially bad. The extent of the BUTCHERY in that area is INCREDIBLE. Kugimiya Rie was the heroine's original voice actress, and did the job fairly well. Now, the english dub got some lazy-ass lisping middle-aged woman who plays the role of Captain Obvious better than ANY other character I've come across in all my many years of service. No, I am not kidding, this character is not only shown as barely dressed and increasingly dumb the further into the game you might get, but has to paraphrase EVERYTHING happening around her, mumbling to herself in the most bored voice possible.
The Captain Obvious style of main character CAN work out fairly nicely, with good scripting - you WILL NOT find it in Blades of Time. The whole basic scenario is already appearing as moronic and makes no sense. The way Ayumi addresses a talking statue promising her power is gonna make you more than just facepalm very damn hard.
You can probably live with the gameplay if you turn the voice volume AAAAAAAAAAAAALL the way down, but don't expect to get impressed by this game. There are myriads of flaws in Blades of Time, and while I grant them that they made a game better than X-Blades this time, the improvements aren't exactly significant on any level other than pure aesthetics.
I can really only recommend picking this game up at even a 75% discounted price of 10 bucks if you share the costs with 3 friends and buy it for pure comedic entertainment on a friday night, with ordering pizza and a bit of alcohol to make it less painful to endure.
