This review is from: Cross Edge (PS3) (Video Game)
X-Edge is a great game with some very clever design but will not be suitable for everyone. If you enjoy learning new leveling & customisation systems, a bit of grinding & power-leveling you could get a lot out of this, if you're a fan of emo by-the-numbers traditional rpgs that are all flashy gfx, floury story lines & shallow gameplay you'd do better to skip this one. I wasn't too sure about the real-time linking of attacks for increased effect but a few hours in I was convinced - it's great stuff and can get very involved if that's how you want to play it. Basically, it's the kind of game 95% of average game reviewers are going to hate because of the things it's not - it's not simple, it's not something they can understand in 1 hour of play-testing, it's something they'd have to sit up straight & give a bit of thought to... and most of them are incapable of that to a large degree, hence the poor ratings... but then this game wasn't made for the likes of them.
