"Repetitive hack and slash game"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

X-Blades combines impressive anime style animation with a typical hack and slash style game-play. Fun to play to start with, the repetitiveness of the story line can get rather boring after going through the same room more than once on your quest for ancient relics.

Overall: Graphics and Design: 4/5 Game-play and storyline: 2/5 Music and Sound: 3/5

Final rating: 3/5

"Awesome game! Loved it!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A very well put together game. The graphics were great. The game play was really good. I used a pc xbox 360 controller and found it much easier than mouse and keyboard. The game situations were at time challenging but overall very “do-able”. The only thing I can say bad about the game is the costume of the main character – a bit weird. But beside that, X-Blades is in my top 5 games :)

"A basic, no-nonsense hack-and-slash."
3 stars"

X-Blades is a very simple, linear hack-and-slash adventure game. While the backgrounds are diverse and beautifully animated, the human figures leave something to be desired; the animators have attempted to combine Devil May Cry 4 with a cell-shaded anime, and the result is visually awkward.

However, the easy but effective gameplay controls make up for it, resulting in a game that is nothing to write home about but is fun enough to be worth a go. Story-seekers wont be impressed and completionists wont be thrilled, since there's only two possible endings and a couple of unlockable outfits, but if you go into it realising that it's not really trying to be anything but Devil May Cry with breasts then you might just enjoy it.

"Fun game if you know how to adjust your setup"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Game runs sweet on an older computer but story cinematics do not.

Had to adjust Win XP and video card not to drop reboot during FMV lock-ups so that I could hurry up and menu into or continue on with the actual game.

Game involves running, jumping, slashing, spellcasting and shooting your way through an onslaught of monsters through various dungeon arenas.

Great action game that I highly recommend!

"Ok"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Graphically quite nice, gameplay something like a mix between tomb raider and a console hack and slash. Personally I found it quickly became tedious but at the price I'm not complaining.

"Awesome and sexy all in one! =P"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I liked the free roaming around the levels where you can run almost anywhere (except for the water/sea of course =P), the graphics are really good and overall a great game, a hack and slash game with very fast loading screens upon entering a new area, TERRIFIC!! =D
