Get ready for ArcheBlade:

Based on a Korean Fantasy Novel, ArcheBlade is a free-to-play PvP-based multiplayer action game in which users can either take sides and fight against the other team or fight for themselves depending on the map. Players choose one of several characters, each with their own unique fighting style and action combos.

ArcheBlade captures the essence of combo-based fighting games like Street Fighter or Tekken combined with online multiplayer match system. Rather than pressing shortcut keys mindlessly to use skills, players need to pay close attention to their character and their opponents’ moves in order to perform combos as well as block and avoid attacks all happening in real-time. Do you like fighting games? Do you enjoy non-stop action? Are you competitive? Then this game is for you.




Select a fighter of your style! Each with unique combos and fighting style, each character brings different game to the table. Find a character that matches your style in Training and perfect your skills. Please stay tuned as we’re adding more characters in the future.





With more than 500 items available, you can customize your character to your preference. People will definitely notice you when you have items on.




From Team Deathmatch and Capture the Base to Free for All and Team Last Man Standing, each game mode has a different goal to accomplish. One more thing to remember. Always watch your surroundings when you play in a map as you may get hit by a train, or lose a step and fall off the bridge. More game modes will be added in the future so please stay tuned.

Capture the Base
Work as a team and defeat the opposing side by capturing the bases scattered around in the map. Protect your bases or teammates when they’re capturing. Be on the lookout as you are capturing, there may be someone to interrupt you right at the end.

Team Last Man Standing
The team with the most round wins will prevail. Be careful as there are no respawns during rounds. There’s nothing like being the last survivor and deliver a win for your teammates at the end while they’re all watching you.

Free for All
No more friendship, just killing. Are you the type that prefers being a lone wolf? This is just for you. The rule is simple. The one who gets the most kills wins the match. Careful though as there are wolves lurking in the shadow ready to steal your kill.

Team Deathmatch
A team with more kills wins the match. To get a kill is the biggest contribution you can make to your team here. Be a support or that guy who’s always at the very front of battle. Whatever gets kills is good for the team.

- I like the graphics and character designs

- The hit detection is so poor that its like anything goes and hope to god that out of 10 of your hits atleast 1-2 will land on the enemy.

- Bad servers (when your region is at SEA the least ping you gonna have is about 140-160ms) which is delay and cause u to lose sanity. they should learn from No More Room in Hell or Dota 2 which you can get 400ms ping but its still decent to play rather than this game.

- Voice of the characters is decent but not all of them

- Hated the default controls

- NO QUEST or side missions, you just battle it out on an arena with other players. BOOORINNGGGGG!! without a story whats the purpose of playin the game? Even GunZ 2 can do better.

- Less rewards. I know its not a P2W Game but seriously?? who would want to play their ♥♥♥ on this game for 200-400 hours just to unlock all the characters in the game. theres no literal "Its rewarding feeling" when you actually get a new character, the reward system is bull. A character cost around 1400 and u get 80-100 Gold (Depending whether u actually win and is #1 on rankings) and the game takes about half an hour.

Theres really no exciting reason to play this game rather than the characters look good and its build out of an unreal 2 engine but come on devs u can do better than this?

This game is fairly fun for a free game, theres quite a few characters to play and theres always a few servers that have alot of poeple playing so its not a dead game. What i dont like is that to play with a friend i have to tell them to join the same server and even so they dont get put on the same team as mine. Other than that, its a cool game.

Bizzare fighting mechanics like literally who ever hits 1st puts you on a never ending combo of hits until you die(and no there is NO way that you can stop this)

Broken as hell classes (mass AoE spammers which can hold multiple players hostage to the never ending combo of hits)
Remember who ever hits 1st wins the fight

The uninstal button works pretty well though i dont even remember installing it in the 1st place it just randomly poped on my screen :(

Back in 2012, I really loved this game.

It was great, a simple PVP game with interesting characters and all the cash shop items could easily be purchased with in-game currency based on your performance during matches. It was everything I liked in a game. Why give it a thumbs down, then, you ask?

Well, first of all, the developers have decided to completely abandon this game because of poor marketing strategies, so no new things will ever be added. The biggest reason of all, though, are the people.

In the past few weeks I came back to this game, expecting it to be that fun and highly competitive game I loved so much. But to my repulsion it's basically become a "if you hax u win" type deal. It's filled with nothing but people who like to spam hacks to win, and gloat about it after. These people don't even have the actual skill to play, only how to pull up base files and edit.

Most of the community has turned to absolute garbage and I refuse to ever play this again until something is done, which, seeing as the main developer hasn't even been online in a year, does not seem likely.

In short.

This game needs way more work.

The game is no doubt pleasant. I for one who enjoys fighting games alot, this game looked like a godsend.
A 3D fighting game with normal/pleasant modes where you can slap people in the face nonstop?

Sign me up!

My first (And probably last) experience goes something like this.

I join the very first free for all arena. I decide to play as Dic (Big burly robot dwarf with shotguns for hands. Cool midrange and powerful slow close range. can sap all armor instantly which looked a little... powerful? I mean where talking about a 33% damage Area of effect here.) I didn't pay too much attention and started to play.

It was enjoyable. You fight against people with different class and it all ends up into one big pile of fighting.

Then problem #1 Shows up.

A Renoah Class is playing. Wait 2. No 3 renoah's. I wonder what is going on here and keep playing.

Okay. When you play fighting game. Is it fun to play as the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ spamming long ranged attacks and fleeing like a coward? I mean do you like it when you invite someone to a street fighter match, And the only thing they do is non-stop doing Hadoukens up in front of you?.

Renoah does just that to PERFECTION.

You fight and they shoot from afar. Picking off you kills stealing the last hits with a powerful sniper shot and run away like a coward. Which is just that. That is the whole class.
She can also simply press a dainty button (Q or F for skills) And snipe everyone in the map from above dealing about 30% of you hp in one swoop.

This means. Example. You fight in a brawl. Ahah, everyone is injured. And then you get this Mark on your head. Everyone has it. Everyone panics. And seconds later 3 out of the five players are dead. Sniped without a chance to block or dodge.

All the kills go to the Renoah player.

Then i noticed how annoying the point system was.

For a fighting game. You can't simply add a last hitting system. You just cannot do that. Otherwise killstealing always happens where some guy comes in, lands a final strike and steals all your point (3 points for kill 1 for assist 1 point is not enough tribute to the player who has been killstealed.)

So instead of making a polished scoring system Like in Warthunder or Hawken where the percentage of damages, the number of hits dealt and the last blow are all calculated into fair amounts of points for everybody.
You get this game. With a severely unpolished pointing system making you grit your teeths in anger at some ranged classes.
(Ranged attacks should not even happen unless it is limited, I mean this is a fighting game we are speaking of here, Fighting.)

It's only scratching the surface as you realize that out of all 20 or so characters available. People seem to pick the same ones again and again. I cannot confirm this as i have only played for four hours. But for all this gameplay time, i believe i have only seen a third of the classes in the game. And only a quarter of the classes were used and overused like crazy.

Then what angered me next was the Valle class and items.

One of the most overused classed (And also mascot of the game) Is Valle. Which is a beefy 3000 Hp mastodon wielding a hammer. Which isn't so bad in itself, Wouldn't it be for abilities and items. One of them making her recover all her health points almost instantly making it the strongest healing method in the game. Along with invulnerability.
We aren't talking a 5 second invulnerability. We are talking about 20 SECONDS of invincibility.

The Valle can simply disregard most damages directed to her and spin to win.

In fact. Most overused classes are either long ranged or Spinners making it atrociously annoying to play against.

It is counterable. In fact, you can counter it often. But the simple act of FIGHTING against something so badly detailed as a 360 degree spam is Not pleasant. In fact you hate it. You hate fighting these people. Spamming and running away, Being cowards when you notice that every single methods of attacks are over the top insanely strong and whereas there is a very weak real defense mechanic other than walking away where you raise an easily bustable shield as people can strike behind you canceling it instantly.

Not only that. But people can also entirely heal themselves via potions. In fact you can simply outmatch anyone by spamming potions which are buyable items in the game.

Either sweat profusely playing this game or buy them with your credit card.

These concepts beats what a fighting game stands for.

A fighting game stands on what the definition of the word fight should be. It's a brutal brawl where people fight with combos and cunning to outwit their opponents. Instead people are paying to get an edge in battle and looking for guides on the internet to find out ''Which class is the most broken class''

It sucks, Because i had fun with this game. Some parts in this game i was really enjoying myself. Getting triple kills and such and just being badass with a giant robot dwarf.

But when i face such a bad system of gameplay where people spam the best options, you know there is some heavy class fixing to be done. And i don't know if they are fixing it or just adding stuff to compensate.

Anywho. Most of the umbalance is BEATABLE. Renoah's can easily be squished if you chase them forever, other classes need a little bit of blocking and thinking, where some others like valle and another class i will get to soon will simply make you hate this game.

The last bit of complaint on my part is the community.

This is the sort of community that would put LoL and CoD kids to shame.
Where everyone acts like they are hot stuff and insulting you after they beat you. Acting like a spoiled brat, Making silly faces in the chat.

The community is horrible. I mean you don't want to spar and fight with these jerks? They don't even know what GG stands for! It is bad mannered and childish and you should stay away from the chat box.

My raging point was when i played against this weird Thor-looking knight. (I did not check the name i was too busy deleting Archeblade from my library)

Which can easily go past your shield by throwing his weapons behind you and the most irritating part is that he can simply push you back whenever you strike him. Which means that you cannot. CANNOT. make a combo on the man. He stops your combo. His passive, Prevents you, From hitting him.

You have trouble HITTING HIM.

It insults the concept of fighting. This game INSULTS the concept of fighting,

It is a game where you must spam, cower and cheap your way to victory. Every single TIME. Standing against what the word FIGHTING stands for.

So no. I do not recommend this game to people wishing for a fighting experience. You will not get it here.

You will not enjoy this game unless you play the cheap way. I tried playing fair and i have failed.

I will not give it a score. Just consider my words.

-Pro's

-Smooth fighting mechanics.
-Decent mapmaking, SummerIsland really enjoyable amongst them.
-Lots of choices of characters.
-Easy to reach character content.

-Cons
-Players would rather pick the best characters possible only to win. Making online interaction repetitive as you fight the same classes over and over again.
-Outright stupidly overpowered abilities varying from each character making the game unfair to play.
-So many minor mistakes destroys the spirit of what is meant to be a fighting game.
-Toxic community Over-abusing the games potion items and skills.

Side note: This a four hours in game review. Maybe one day i might come back and change my mind.
Do not take these words as true or false about the game. Make your own opinion out of this review and you don't have to believe what is written here. Maybe this game is better than what i think of it at the momment.

It's worth a try. Maybe you will like it.

I sure didn't...

Let me start by saying: THIS IS NOT A P2W GAME.

Now that's done, this game is a really fun and addicting fighting game based on your actual skill. The store items, wich can be bought with real or in-game money dont ad that many stats, so there is not an item that will make you OP, making the game a skill based game.

Pros:
-Good Music.
-Good Graphics (Anime art style).
-Easy to learn.
-Every character is different from any other character and every single one of them has a unique role in team gameplay.
-Wide range of matches, from 1 vs 1 to 7 vs 7 (including Deathmatch, TDM, Capture point and Round Match)
-Includes a Host Server exe so you can play with your friends in private.

Cons:
-There is no match making. You simply enter a server and if you're lucky its almost full.
-You need to stay in the lobby and wait for everyone to be "locked" wich means that in a 5 vs 5 match you need to wait for 5 people in both teams to be ready and actually start playing.
-Servers lag a lot. Even the server with lower ping have lag spikes from time to time.
-Every character needs to be bought for you to play with. They give you 3000 game money, enough to buy 2 characters (1400 each).
-There is very few maps and two of them are actually bugged.
-There is a character called Renoah (sniper) that has a unfair and OP ultimate that takes almost half the amount of hp every enemie has.

Rate: 7/10 The server and match making need to be improved a lot.

Personally I enjoyed the game when I first launched it, but you have to realize the community consist of a variety of people, the game has a ton of issues including the hacks that people use in the game, no one is going to play the game if they can't enjoy the game...its sad that ab has took the downfall tbh, I've wasted many hours on this game and there is always that one person who has no skill and clearly can't function properly. If you'd like to waste your time witht he ab community feel free.

This game is pretty great if you like 3d action fighters, mixed with some MOBA aspects. One thing to note, this game is about timing and skill, not level nor equipment. And no, it is not a P2W game.
