The game is neat and pretty fun, has an arcade-y feel to the combat. While the combat isn't very deep or execution heavy, it does have a level of fun that can be found in old school hack-n-slash games. The bosses can be monotonous at times as they have 1 or 2 ways they can be hurt you need to repeat countless times on harder difficulties. The character design is good and the music might be the coolest part of the game. It is mindless sword swinging fun, but won't suit everyone that is looking for an execution heavy action game.
X blades is a hack and slash game where you play a blonde girl with a nice booty.
The only redeeming quality this game has is that this booty isn’t hidden.
This tomb raider runs around in a thong.
Im just kidding, theres more to the game than a nice butt.
X Blades is fun to play through
you go from section to section just killing everything in your way, the sections are pretty cool and I didn’t regret spending time with this game,
There are some alright boss battles sprinkled in this game and enemies are varied and do force you to change up your magic spells which can be spent only when your magic bar is filled, which is filled by either doing damage or taking damage.
magic spells are obtained by purchasing them in menu with souls acquired by killing enemies.
You can slash with blades, shoot enemies with your gun that thankfully never runs out of ammo or with magic attacks,
However the execution of this game just ruins what otherwise would be a sure why not, in your backlog.. Instead it turns into a please don’t.
Enemies are varied, but they look far too similar to enemies you face later on that wont die the way you’ve been used to through the first half of the game…
In fact the game changes the rules on you a lot, it doesn’t even warn you that the rules have changed
Theres a sudden increase in difficulty and you cant understand why
Why aren’t these guys you’ve sliced through dying, why are these spiders teleporting away when you get close.
Forcing you to have to trial and error your way through the 2nd half of the game or just go to the internet.
This is never a good sign.
You aren’t told that enemies are different now, you aren’t given a quick heads up when they need to be killed a different way than before.
They’ll suddenly be indestructible, and youre left feeling frustrated.
This is the furthest from all of xblades problems though
You can lock onto enemies to shoot or do a magic attack on, but 99 times out of 100 the game will lock onto another target as soon as you release your attack.
The game will lock onto frozen enemies in the background a thousand times before it will lock onto the enemy right in front of you, and I wish this was an exaggeration, but it isn’t.
This game is broken and you see all there is to see about halfway through the game.
The 2nd half is just fighting stronger enemies in the evening version of sections you just played through minus of course the final boss sections, which are new.
I was hoping x blades would be one of those under rated gems that critics just didn’t appreciate back in the day,
But its level of trash holds true even 6 years later
This game has its moments of fun, but the story ****, the voice acting is worse than duck dynasty, and the combat is broken
For what it is.
Hack and Slash Action Adventure Game 6/10
Summing up, it is possible that X-Blade: Postmortem won't be able to fit in the market because of its flaws. It will entertain those who are not familiar with this genre, but they will end finding it repetitive. The more seasoned in this sort of titles will find it directly boring. Nor the developers contribute with innovation neither the game achieves in creating an atmosphere which allows the player to get involved in the story.
Although the stages look decent, hideous camera angles make viewing the action a chore and with short levels taking a few minutes to get through, it's only made worse by repetitious hack n' slash gameplay. The unappealing story further hurts the game, and we had trouble liking the main character's annoying Paris Hilton-style.
I can still hear the ba-thump ba-thump of the paused game behind me, begging me back for more abuse, and I'm caught in a spiral of disbelief. Nothing can be this awful, yet I find myself straining to look over my shoulder. I don't know how long I can hold out. I am lost, but you may yet save yourselves. Save yourselves from this game.
If you're into hack and slashing video games, X-Blades will be one heck ****, 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.
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 of time, money or simply good ideas.
SummaryIn the game, players control an anime-style heroine that destroys anything in her path using guns, blades, magic, and a healthy dose of cinematic flair. X-Blades features a special combination of cinematic style, beautiful animation, and relentless, high speed gameplay. Players assume the role of Ayumi, a stunningly seductive yet tenacio...
