There are only so many ways to make a game belonging to the hack'n'slash genre interesting. Deathbringer actually tries to bring in some welcome innovation.

The idea of the living sword which demands deaths (a thing also appears on the expansion of Ultima VII) seems to come from the Elric series of books from Moorcock, so the game ends with even less of it's own. It's as you say, pretty graphics and little else (Pretty graphics yet the long introduction is all text).

That, in fact, makes the whole product look even more like a graphical demo with the story stuck on as an afterthought.
