  1. With simple, intuitive controls making combat and exploration a pleasure, what starts off as a fairly routine blade-swishing blizzard soon settles into a more interesting groove. With secret-packed levels offering countless opportunities to poke around, it's a formula that's familiar but satisfying.
  2. There are some unlockables, but they can all be accessed by the halfway point, and the story is too basic to retain most players' interest.
  3. Sluggish controls and a failure to capitalise on the free-climbing potential leave this feeling generic and joyless. Here's hoping the second episode fares better.
  4. The tale is muddled and poorly executed, the action is unremarkable, and yet, for all its issues, Blade Kitten is still a playable game with enough sugary-sweet style to appeal to a younger audience – or indeed those with an interest in all things cat-girl.
  5. Dull platforming and button-mashing action make Blade Kitten a disappointing first game for its cute-as-a-cat heroine.
  6. 40
    Kit tries hard to win your heart, but sadly the repetition, disappointing controls and level design stop her from being able to.
  7. 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.

    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.

    A bad game? NOTE EVEN CLOSE. I for one absolutely loved this game, and for one major reason. No, it wasn't just because of Skiffy, It was because of the sheer weirdness that this game possessed, and it was this weird factor that kept me enjoying and laughing through the whole game, I don't even care if it was a little poorly made, I loved the story and everything else about this game, there is no way that this is a waste of any body's time.

    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. Expand

    I for one am surprised by the bad reviews from the "professional" game reviewers. It looks like they're rating this game based on something it never set out to be. To me, a bad game is a game that fails at what it sets out to do, and Blade Kitten does exactly what it sets out to do.

    It's a fun casual hack and slash platformer with an adorable protagonist and cutesy characters in cell shaded levels.

    If this game looks fun to you just disregard the so called "professional" reviews. We all know most of them hand out good scores to anyone who pays them and can barely be bothered to even look at games made by anyone who doesn't, much less treat them fairly. The game is dirt cheap and there are a lot worse games you could spend $9 on.

    Cute is definitely the term to use in describing this title. There are several good things, a few bad things.

    First and foremost, is it fun?
    I would think so. The combat system is pretty basic in that essentially you are spam slashing your blade with not much sense of combos (though you could manually chain a few attacks for sexy results). The real fun occurs when you sprint forward and spam your attack button. I personally found that to be fun.

    The voice acting is good. The banter is a bit cheesy but that adds to it's casual charm. This game is definitely not for gamers who take things too seriously. It's not a deep dark story of grand epic proportions but rather a jolt of light and vibrant color that is unique to this genre I feel.

    Maps are massive and you can't really get lost. As long as you go forward, while there are MANY ways to reach the end point, they all pretty much point towards it. It can arguably be called linear or on rails due to this however you have to consider the fact that if it weren't, you would very easily get lost in these monstrously large levels and spend HOURS backtracking.

    That's not fun.

    I thought this would be OK till I played it. Terrible design, predictable levels and boring game play.
    The graphics style is uninspired and
    the dead end level design is annoying.
    My advice is to avoid it and spend your money on something good.
