    Introduction:

    The latest game in the popular CRPG series, Exile, this newest Blades of Exile is easily the best game of the series. Spiderweb Software was never known for their flashy graphics or unreal surround sound effects, but their gameplay and great storylines have kept their games in the race and not out on the bench. Blades of Exile is no exception, the graphics aren't the greatest, infact, they don't even compare to the graphics from the original Diablo, but offer a whole lot of depth and lots of game playing time (a whole lot!). There are a few features that make this game stand out from the rest of the crowd, which every gamer will feel is a welcome addition. But a few gamers may be turned off by the extreme difficulty and challenging scenarios in the game.
    Gameplay, gameplay, gameplay!
