  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.

    Blade Kitten is far from an abomination. In fact it packs enough charm to make it worthy of a purchase for fans of the series, or action fans that enjoy the eccentric platformer.

    Blade Kitten is a controversial platform / action game, with some strenghts (Kit can do almost everything, from climbing the walls to fight with a flying sword) and some flaws (the level design is mediocre, the combat system is simplistic and there are some minor bugs). With its nineteen levels, the game will entertain you for a few hours.
  4. 60
    Blade Kitten turns out to be an amusing game but it doesn't manage to leave a strong impression. You might enjoy the first play through but after that the game will just lie there, collecting dust.
  5. If you're incredibly desperate for a sidescroller, then Blade Kitten will waste a handful of hours for you, and might even scratch your itch. You really would have to make sure there's nothing else left to play before considering opening your wallet for this, though.
  6. 50
    The platforming can be fun in short bursts and the presentation is very cute, but that can't save this game from its lackluster storyline and cyclical gameplay.
  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.

    I just registered so I could dispel the crap reviews this game is getting. I am really fed up with reviewers right now...it seems they can't seem to understand that in order to be a 'good' game it has to be 'fun' to actually play! All these reviews of Journey...okami...far cry 3 blood dragon....ac3....dmc reboot etc etc. These may be solid games with solid gameplay and everything else....but they weren't fun! Out of all the demo's I have downloaded off of psn blade kitten's was the only one that I actually enjoyed playing. And this demo was actually the longest one I've come across...so by the end of it you actually have an idea if you are going to like the game or not. Now your going to hear all of these bad comments about the gameplay and the fighting and....the regular crap people pick apart when reviewing a game. I downloaded the demo and for some reason a few days later I saw the game price dropped from $15 to $5 CDN/US. It wasn't even in the bargain section....it didn't even say or indicate that the price was originally $15. FOR $5 there is a load of content here to enjoy. If you enjoyed the demo, you will enjoy the game. The game will offer you enough challenge with the enemies and ultimately.... a fun time! The demo enemies are easy once you learn their attack patterns and your own controls....it's a tutorial level afterall! Know that the difficult scales appropriately after the demo content.This argument that the combat system is about spamming the attack button and for some enemies it's about hitting an extra block button in between....yes you can probably beat all the enemies hitting a combination of 2 buttons....but you won't. You will be using all of Kit's special attacks...cause they are rewarding to do! The 2 button mechanic requires you to properly position yourself the same way against every enemy. Nobody would do this....especially when you can do it in a much more satisfying and quicker manner using the special moves! When all is said and done... Play the demo. For $5 this game is a steal. If you want a personalized review I'd rate it as probably an 7.5-8/10. The game has flaws....but they aren't nearly as bad as every other bad review would have you believe. Expand

    This game is sort of like Strider and Earthworm Jim platforming, but its much more fun. Combat is basic and enemies are best to be avoided. Blade kitten controls like a dream and levels are fairly good. The music is great and the graphics aren't too bad. There might be mixed reviews, but this game is worth buying for any platformer fan.

    Well, Blade Kitten is a decent but fun downloadable game. But since I was playing the game, there were some minor bug problems and some of the levels were good, but 2 levels including the final boss battle, Dreadnaught, is kinda too hard for me to beat and that's why they keep pushing the game too much time. But one of my favorites were the in-game cutscenes that any anime that fans choose may wanna take notes on. It's like Robotech meets Oh My Goddess!. The characters look amazing, I actually like Kit Ballard. And an incredible collection of concept art from the Blade Kitten website. Although there's no Episode 2, which they were supposed to be released as a downloadable content, but it never happened. It's kind of a challenge, but Blade Kitten is kinda disappointing, but I sure hope Atari or any other company could release all of the episodes of Kitten. Decent game, but worth renting. Expand
