4.0 out of 5 stars Does a bikini make for good health and safety when blade dancing?, 23 Mar 2011

This review is from: X Blades (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
The speed, the colours, it's like someone got an Anime and let it have a glutton session on coffee and sugary treats before letting it loose on the computer!;)
The first thing to try to get used to is the speed that the controls operate at. There aren't alot of them, granted, but when you can run like the wind and keep double jumping and blade dancing it takes a while to master any kind of combat. Yet within two short levels I found myself at the light boss... I had to check myself. Nope. I was doing a boss level!
You get the idea quite quickly that this game is very fast paced, broken up by reasonably well done video footage and has a well animated, interesting special move tree that you have to adapt to counter the foes you meet. The levels are short but hold enough mystery to come back for a slightly better look to find secrets and alternatives. It's very colourful and plays like a comic book, no gritty realism here. For the price this makes for a fun, dive in, button mash, weekend break.
