I just snagged Broken Edge last night through the current 40% off deal (BFCM23) and played with Goatette . The tutorial was super helpful, laying out the basics clearly . What really stands out is how the game combines combat and strategy . You’ve got to be smart with your moves! I was a bit worried about playing in our cozy space, but the AR mode worked well, fitting perfectly even in tighter spots . Definitely worth trying!
Full Broken Edge review below:
Broken Edge, available on Steam and the Meta Quest platform, is a multiplayer VR sword-fighting game developed by Trebuchet that emphasizes strategic combat over brute force. The game offers 1v1 duels without a conventional narrative, featuring six unique classes, each with distinct weapons and styles. These classes include Knight, Barbarian, Samurai, Duelist, Persian, and Tyrant, offering a variety of primary and some secondary weapons for combat.
The game primarily focuses on online multiplayer, with options for offline solo play, where each class has a mini-campaign. Online matches are set across three rounds, where you can play with friends or in ranked modes with random players. For solo play, after competing against other classes, players face a final long fight with Tyrant, with increasingly challenging rounds.
Combat in “Broken Edge” requires careful strikes to break an opponent’s protective barrier, with weapon damage depending on the collision point. Each class also has a unique blade awakening technique for increased power, adding to the strategic depth of combat. The game’s tutorial covers basics, but advanced techniques can be learned at the training dojo, essential for online play.
Visually, the game stands out with its cel-shaded graphics and pastel color palette, giving it a storybook-like appearance. Each of the six classes has its own arena, adding variety to the game’s look and feel. Overall, “Broken Edge” offers a blend of strategic gameplay and unique visuals, making it a satisfying and deep multiplayer experience.
