X Blades = not a great game

The good

1. graphics are pretty good / level enviroments look nice.
2. main chater looks cool and has decent weapons

The bad

1. the controls are terrible. presision jumping and combo ataks are stupid hard due to the controls
2. boss fights are retarded. they take for ever on some. there is no life guage so you dont know how much damage if any you have done to the boss.
3. music gets very repetive and anoying.
4. i understand its a hack and slash but come on after killing hundreds of the same monsters in the same level area its gets pretty boring fast.
5. Level fights and such. once you zone into a new level you are pretty much instantly thrown into another fight.
6. the special skills are fun and all but having to stop in the middle of a fight and reasign new ataks to new buttons over and over agian really starts to suck pretty fast.
7. once you enter an area you are almost always instantly thrown into a fight and even if you clear the area and move to another If you have to back track because you may of missed an item or somthin you have to reclear ever room along the way . Every time you enter a new room even if u have alredy cleared it befor you will have to reclear it agian. Except for boss fight rooms.
8. Boss fights are all pretty much the same and all pretty lame

there is more but those are just me bein picky. at best its a rent only game .

I pirated this, I only needed to see the cover art to know it was bad.

Regardless I downloaded it and confirmed how crap it is. Gone in 15 minutes.

i liked the voice acting in the start ayumi seemed like the biggest bitch, which was a bit funny. the game fails as a hack n slash though, becouse it gets too repititive and the only combo that you will be doing is mashing the attack button nonstop, and just waiting from a fireball to come towards you. Ofc, you dont let that hit you, instead, you just jump or teleport away or use any of the earthquake skills (aoe ground dmg + spell effects).

the bosses have way too few attack sequences, and when you figure out how to rape them, which takes a short while, then you have to actually kill them, which takes around 15-30 minutes, since they got so fucking much hp (im looking at you giant flying eye-insect thing. I hate myself for not having the ice aoe attack while fighting it).

Anyways, you should rather play devil may cry 3 or devil may cry 4. If you havent playn those before, then you can try x - blades before taking a look at how a really good hack n slash should/could be made.

On a side note, im looking forward to whatever gajin entertainment, or whatever the company was called, is coming up with next. People learn fast, so their next game might just be a gem, or atleast something to kill time with

dam this was a long post =)


edit : roronoa - you dont need a password, if you do then something has gone wrong under the download of the file, or you might just be using an old version of winrar, or trying to use it on an .iso file. Look at the extension, then use poweriso (a program) if its an iso file and you want to extract or make a cd out of it, or deamon tools if you want to mount it so that it appears as being in a dvd station. Search google for more specific tutorials on this. If it's not an iso file, then you might want to try extracting it with 7zip (search google), or redownload the file. A great tip from me is to get the reloaded or tarantula version (not sure if both of them released it, just guessing).

good luck roronoa ^^
