  • Summary: Activision has enjoyed a pretty strong track record when it comes to translating comic books and movies into game form, but it's failed on both accounts here.

  1. The added bonuses in gameplay, such as critical hits and non-linear play, are what make this game definitely worth checking out. So get out your dancing shoes, and start slashing to the beat.

    Stylish and fun despite some repetitiveness, this is one of the better action games you can pick up this year.
  3. Blade in the end disappoints with frustratingly cheap gameplay that offers little fun.

    Blade is a kick-ass hero in the comics and movies, but take away the "kick" and what you're left with adequately describes this game.

    The game just doesn't work. This is hard to explain, but for whatever reason Blade simply doesn't gel properly. There is a sort of intangible loathing that emanates from it.

    An ugly, late-as-hell game with a lousy framerate and confusticated control. I dunno. Whys and wherefores shouldn't be my department. Just don't buy this.

    Tell everyone you meet not to buy or rent this game. Ever.

    Certainly not the greatest game in the world, but not the worst either. While it doesn't have what made the movie such a massive hit, Certainly not the greatest game in the world, but not the worst either. While it doesn't have what made the movie such a massive hit, it's still very playable, mainly due to the weaponry and the way the vampires turn to ash when you shoot them down. I've completed this numerous times, it's easy and fun, but not a game for anyone who's experienced what the PS2 can do. Expand
