    Best played in small doses. Even the multi-player modes won't sustain your interest for long.
  2. The novelty of being able to dive into and out of the water at will quickly get old because there really isn’t much reason to do so in the first place.
  3. 57
    Just another shooter that really isn't worth your time.
  4. The controls are what kill this game.
  5. The excessively high frustration level and poor quality cut scenes make this game about as fun as reading "Moby Dick" during your Christmas vacation.
  6. Just too light on action, production quality, and overall gameplay to make it a worthwhile purchase.

    SeaBlade does have a few solid moments. Sadly, they are few and far between. [Dec 2002, p.102]

    A bland dish indeed, whipped up by chefs who were asleep, or perhaps dead, when lessons on taste and flavor were being taught. [Feb 2003, p.154]
  9. The biggest hole to the Seablade hull is its frustrating gameplay, coupled with the fact you can only save after each mission, which are not short by any stretch of the imagination.
  10. Game Informer

    Featuring perhaps the worst cutscenes I have ever seen, and gameplay that is tedious at best, there really isn't much SeaBlade has to offer. [Jan 2003, p.114]
  11. Xbox Nation Magazine

    Any person who has not played it is, in some subtle way, morally superior to anyone who has. Now, a solemn pact: Let us never speak of SeaBlade again. [Feb/Mar 2003, p.87]

    As if this game couldn't get any worse. The concept of a air-sea mech game was cool, but it failed to deliver in many ways. The story isAs if this game couldn't get any worse. The concept of a air-sea mech game was cool, but it failed to deliver in many ways. The story is non-existent, graphics were N64 caliber, and the sound of guns sounded like plastic. Many should stay away from this game, but it's old anyways, who cares? Full Review »

    The game is a little loose and the level variation isn't that great, but the multiplayer makes for a good party game of blood wake tired The game is a little loose and the level variation isn't that great, but the multiplayer makes for a good party game of blood wake tired friends. A Live feature and some minor tweaks could make another seablade much better. Full Review »
