Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Blades of Vengeance
AUTHOR/VENDOR:    Beam Software/Electronic Arts
RELEASED:         1993
TYPE:             Action
LANGUAGE:         English

PREMISE:          Beam Software's stab at a Rastan clone has you playing
                  your pick of three fighters (valkyrie, barbarian, wizard)
                  as you side-scroll your way through hordes of enemies on
                  a mystic quest for the usual bearded deity.

IMPRESSIONS:      A fantasy-themed platformer that rises above the crowd
                  due to its excellent graphics and sound.  It's too bad
                  that the gameplay is only passable at best.  Think of it
                  as a 2D Golden Axe, and you'll begin to get the picture.

Good graphics, pretty good sound, and 2/3 of the characters are well designed. The game however lacks a certain playablity and is just too damn hard. I've gotten to the second boss and that's it, this game takes expert timing and execution. Most of the time I don't have that type of patients while playing a video game.

This is one game where it's actually better to go ahead and play alone. The two player mode has some bugs and disadvantages.
