    Very fun Hack and slasher. If you want a deep story to go with the action, then look elsewhere. The story in this game is simply there just to give an excuse to decimate hundreds and hundreds of enemies. The "levels" are all quite small with little freedom, extremely linear. I'm currently on my 2nd play though, I just want more! DLC is also on the way, which could be interesting. All Very fun Hack and slasher.

All up this is a great game for anyone who just wants a little hack and slash action and not worry about any story. Story: 2 (nothing really here), Graphics: 9 (very fluid and some nice designs) Gameplay: 9 (gameplay elements work almost perfectly), Sound: 9 (The score featured in this game is not only suitable for this type game, you will also find yourself turning up the volume. Overall: 7.25/10 (my opinion). Expand

    A gorgeous game filled with endless slaughter. Not perfect, not very deep, but it is quite fun indeed.

    This is a bad game period. There's almost no story. The difficulty level goes from easy to super tough and extremely frustrating. It's ridiculous how repetitive this games is. It's one of those half-baked game that didn't have the budget to be finished. That graphics are good though. The potential for a descent game was there but unfortunately SouthPeak Games must have ran out ofThis is a bad game period. There's almost no story.

    If you're into hack and slashing video games, X-Blades will be one heck of a game, with its solid fighting mechanisms and frustratingly hard gameplay, but for people looking for a story or amazing graphics, this repetitive game with average graphics is an egregious mess with almost no fun in it at all.

It seems that this game was just made for the purpose of decimating monstrously repugnant fantasy creatures with inscrutably macabre tendencies and great puns. Expand

  1. X-Blades is a solid title, and although it might not be as accomplished as some similar games in the genre, it certainly is a valiant effort.

    Everything about X-Blades is mediocre. It works for what it is, and there’s some charm to the action and the characters, but the gameplay design is lacking in ingenuity; a notion that is perpetuated the longer you play.
  3. That X-Blades remains a decent title despite the lack of compelling missions and likeable characters is something of an accomplishment in itself, though not one we'd recommend advertising from the rooftops.
