  1. Do not buy Blade Kitten. The best case scenario is Krome didn't know what they were doing with this first game but have the experience to make the second one decent. The worst case scenario involves the developers slapping round robin high fives for their excellent work and retexturing it for a 'sequel'.
  2. If you are trying to ween a GF (or BF, never let it be said GR isn't progressive) on to modern consoles, this could be a great stepping stone, as the gameplay and graphics are just as simple as they were back in the day. But if you're a hardcore, experienced gamer, you may want to skip Blade Kitten in favor of playing with other pussycats.
  3. Dull platforming and button-mashing action make Blade Kitten a disappointing first game for its cute-as-a-cat heroine.

    Kit tries hard to win your heart, but sadly the repetition, disappointing controls and level design stop her from being able to.

    This is a cute game, if you like anime and or side scrolling games. she has I believe 12 Outfits to change into and several different swords you can eventually buy with game progression. The voice acting is especially nice.

    I feel my 14.99 was NOT wasted.

    It is cute.

    Blade Kitten is a great game for kids. My 9 year old daughter loves it. She says its cool. The protagonist has numerous outfits and weapons that are purchased with the currency accumulated during game play. She also has a small pet (like a dog) and gets to ride a small dinosaur (like a horse). Both of these creatures help her to complete the quest. This is an action platform game that is devoid of blood, gore, and intense violence. The story, voice acting, graphics, and animation remind me of a cartoon series that my children watch called "Storm Hawks". If you have children that like to watch that show, then I think they will like this game. Blade Kitten is well priced and provides my kids with many hours of fun. It is definitely better value than some toys that cost much more only to get quickly discarded. Full Review »

    I've played a lot worse, like Super Mario Brother Wii. The game style is cell shaded so it looks decent. Better than most modern games anyway, at least you can see where you're going and not get confused with all the brown.

    You buy your weapon upgrades and can earn money really fast if you just repeat a level over and over thus ridding the game of any challenge it might have originally had, The costumes are good and the main character is likable if you like **** and trust me when I say this, she is one of the most likable main characters I've seen... though I suppose that reflects badly on me.

    It's not perfect, the combat gets stale rather fast, I dislike having to start a level from the beginning to find everything but I suppose that is part of the challenge. The fact there are no lives also makes this game too easy, you die and go back to the last checkpoint and there are tonnes of them.

    If you're looking for a cheap-ish platformer with nice design, then buy this game. It's a lot cheaper than Mario 3 re-release for the Wii and looks about 20x better as well. For £7 you can't go wrong if you like platforming and as far as platforming goes, this is pretty much retro... ignoring the sword fights. If you remember The Lion King for SNES and liked the ostrich part... you're in luck my friends.
