    Mirage is a title that takes some getting used to, but once the player gets over the initial hump, there is a stylish spectacle hack and slash here the fans of the genre will surely enjoy.

    RainBlood Chronicles: Mirage is a good Muramasa clone with some flaws. It offer two different characters, a well done combat system and a good replayability.

    Rain Blood Chronicles: Mirage probably isn't going to stick with you as a cherished experience, but it's a competently designed combo slasher with a fair bit going for it. Players who like their 2D hack n' slash combat fast and accurate should be satisfied.

    Deep and satisfying, Blood Rain Chronicles: Mirage is a valid alternative to Muramasa, ranking itself as a really interesting action game.

    If you can overcome the technical shortcomings, impenetrable plot, and the game overstaying its welcome (the last couple of hours drag on), you’ll find a well-crafted game.

    Genuine unintentional hilarity like this is rare in games, and it’s worth experiencing. Maybe not at the asking price, but if you see this in a steam sale, snap it up and have a good laugh.

    The best action game I've ever played, period! I've played it, and LOVED it! Makes me feel like a badass. I love the unique atmosphere. The aesthetic is to my liking, the artstyle is wonderful, and the characters look attractive. The combat is hard to get used to, but whoever did the art for this game knows how to stimulate the senses. The first two games of the series, which are both turn based RPGs, are also true works of art. Expand

    If you liked fast paced combos in a cool Chinese setting, then you'll like this game. It reminds me a bit of Shank- but the fighting style is more like Devil May Cry.

    Definitely worth picking up while it is on sale.

    A friend told me to check out the game, so I did. We're both having a great time playing! I like the graphics and the action is pretty awesome. I like that you can tag team out on the fly. I still feel like there's a lot of secrets to discover. Two thumbs up!! Expand

    As a fan of hack-n-slash (and for a 33% discount on an inexpensive game), I bought this one

    I'm totally satisfied. The drawing quality is
    great, and attacking stuff was awesome. The music is good, I think it synergizes well with what is happening
    You can play with 2 different characters, and change during stages. Each has a unique style of combat, so you will probably like one more than the other
    The story isn't "omg, that's so creative and awesome", but it has a bit of mystery at first, so I'll continue playing to know everything. Voice acting is just average, what doesn't help the story feel more interesting

    In the end, I think it's worth buying. The game flows well and it's fast-paced. Not a big variety of combos, but it's ok for 2D. The price is just right for it

    The art, music, and combat system is great. It'll remind you a bit about the Shank series, but it's got a deeper combat system. It's got local co-op, and an adequate number of skill upgrades to make your combos look even more bad-ass. Side-scrolling beat-em-ups like these deserve a place in anyone's library. My only gripe is that despite the deep combat system, the controls don't feel tight enough to take advantage of it. Expand
