  1. Tell everyone you meet not to buy or rent this game. Ever.
  2. 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.
  3. Stylish and fun despite some repetitiveness, this is one of the better action games you can pick up this year.
  4. When you add in the fact that the camera seems to have a mind of it's own, then factor in the slowdown, compounded with the fact that you can barely see your opponents because it's so freakishly dark, you have to wonder why you're wasting time on this painfully inadequate, near crap game.

    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.
  6. Blade lacks the energy of the film, the feel of the comic, and the standards set by other games in its genre.
  7. The actual game is such a mess that even hardcore action gamers will think twice about ridding the world of vampires.
  8. 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.
  9. This is old-school gaming -- it feels like Urban Chaos, looks like the first Tomb Raider, and smells like a bomb.
  10. 35
    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.
  11. Blade in the end disappoints with frustratingly cheap gameplay that offers little fun.

    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. Full Review »
