Xuan Yuan Sword-The series started as early as 1990 and now – 30 years later – it’s time for the seventh part of the series. This time you take control Taishi Zhao; a warrior who must do everything to defend his family in a world where Chinese history and mythology are intertwined and really anything can happen.
I have not played any of the previous games in Xuan Yuan Swordseries, so I can not compare how part seven stands against the other six, but I can say how it stands against other games in the genre. What I am impressed by immediately as soon as I start Xuan Yuan Sword 7 is how incredibly beautiful the graphics are. The environments are impressive and the graphics are overall incredibly good-looking. The characters feel alive, the light effects feel realistic and the contrast between light and dark could not look better. I played Xuan Yuan Sword 7 on Playstation 4 Pro and I did not experience any lag, or anything nasty. Charging times are also not very long, especially not for a game of this size.
The story is rich and advanced and it is truly an immersive experience to be drawn into the Xuan Yuan Sword world. I did not feel that I needed the background story from the other parts of the series to keep up with what is happening in the game, but I did get the urge to play other parts of the series just to be able to immerse myself in the mythology.
