From my first impressions of it, I feel like the strongest compliment I can personally pay to Bladestar is that I can’t find anything wrong with it apart from nitpicks. It’s an odd sort of game because I cannot find anything exceptional about it that is either good or bad; it’s the kind of game that just sort of ‘competently exists.’

I fear that I might be damning Bladestar with faint praise by saying this, but the game is good. Not great, not even the kind of good that is going to keep me playing it for longer than a few hours, just good.

If you like arcade shooters and want a new one to play, you could do a heck of a lot worse than Bladestar.
