Infinity Blade II, The Eye-Popping iOS Masterpiece Is Now Available For Download


The developers of Infinity Blade, Chair Entertainment, are back a year later with Infinity Blade II which is now available for download in the App Store for $6.99. The game which is often quoted to be “a showcase piece”, is a technically and visually stunning title that consistently delivers eye-popping stuff. In screenshots, the game might look indistinguishable from its year-old predecessor but in fact, it offers much more. The sharper shadows, stronger lighting, and a glut of atmospheric effects appear amazingly beautiful, especially on iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.

Like the first game, this one is on a loop, lasting about 20 minutes on a play-through before you will face an end boss, bring your accumulated armor and ability upgrades back to a restart and play through again. The game now allows dual-wielding of some blades and heavy weapons adding new defensive techniques and offensive combos. You can now specialize weapons by adding gems that induce special effects like poison or health re-generation. Even the story is worth caring about, as your first death introduces a twist to what these Infinity Blade games are really about.

    Instead of just spitting out what the iTunes description is, why don’t you give us your review/impression of that game… unless you didn’t even get the game and just copied what the other websites write. I find that almost everything that Usman writes has been copied from other tech website and most of his news are not even related to Canada.

    Thanks for trolling.  Come again.

  • Ryan

    Not all criticism is trolling. This sounds more like a regular reader sharing a critique about something he or she has been finding increasingly frustrating. Blogs should be thankful to have criticism like this.

    I know that I myself have been frustrated sometimes with the way things are written on this blog, and I’ve expressed that a few times. In the end I keep reading because for the most part it’s a good selection of content that’s relevant to readers in Canada, but I’d probably enjoy the blog a little more and even recommend it to my friends if it catered more to my tastes. Not that I’m expecting it to, as I know everyone’s tastes are different, but perhaps I’m not the only one with those opinions, and so by expressing them I hope that the writers will take that criticism into account and change their style if there are enough people that agree.

    There’s always room for improvement in anything, and the best way for a website to find out where it can improve is to hear it from their readers. Most websites would pay for feedback from their readers, so getting it for free I think is a very good thing. We post feedback because we care.

  • I love reading all of Ryans comments. truth <3

    Agreed, when you don’t receive criticism anymore, it means you have failed, nobody cares. 

  • Abramgreenspoon

    Good points.  Well said.  But I still disagree.  A well-placed, well-articulated criticism is one thing.  But criticism is not always those two things.  And when it’s not, it’s usually nothing more than verbal vomit.  It’s the downside of open forums…but nothing’s perfect.

    Most ‘normal’ people skim through the first paragraph, before clicking on “read more”.  Even after doing so, you can easily tell within the first few secs where the article is heading, click back if it’s not worth your time, and move on to the next.  All of this done within 10 secs, unless you have a very slow thought process.  But of course, you always have the anal retentive ‘critics’ that like to read every single line of the article, and then complain afterwards.  Get a life!

    didn’t you used to be a dude?

    Remember to restart your device after installing, a lot of people have been experiencing crashes and audio bugs.

    So… is it any good, now that it’s been released?
