Key Specifications

Infinity Blade haters aren’t going to be swayed by Chair Entertainment’s second instalment of the series, but the rest of us have plenty of reasons to smile. Infinity Blade II is everything a sequel is meant to be – bigger, better, shinier – without the diminishing returns usually associated with glossy follow-ups.

You are Siris (no relation to Siri), and have to take on the deathless tyrants left following the demise of the God Kind – he of the first Infinity Blade. The swiping mechanic works much as it did in the first game, but it has been enriched with new strategies and roleplaying elements. You still swipe against enemy attacks to parry, hoping for a break in their defences, but now you can dual-wield weapons or ditch the shield and hold a single weapon in two hands.
Infinity Blade II
Visually, Infinity Blade II is as pretty as ever, but Chair has made sure that sense of repetition that came to define the first game has been toned-down. A lot. You’ll still be discovering new areas hours into this second adventure. If the déjà vu style of Infinity Blade turned you off, don’t hesitate to fall onto this sword.

Verdict

Beautiful, fun and downright cool, Infinity Blade II improves upon its predecessor in just about every way.
