In the distant past the universe of X-Blades was ruled by two powerful beings, the Enlightened on the side of good, helping his people how and when he could and the Dark One who was quite the opposite. Both were revered by all peoples and a balanced, but never-ending battle between the two persisted for centuries. Humans suffered terribly in the constant combat between the two, combat which shook the universe to its very core. In order to ease this suffering, the Enlightened banished the divine power of the Dark One, imprisoning it in a stone, known as an Artifact, but at a price. Inseparably linked, where one of the divine beings went the other was bound to follow and so the power of the Enlightened was captured in a matching Artifact. Together the two were hidden away and peace, as well as balance was restored to the universe. But peace is a fragile thing. It is said that any human who comes in contact with the Artifacts will be cursed and the power of darkness will once again be awakened.Enter the game's heroine Ayumi. As the game begins a map which has been lost for countless years suddenly turns up and it shows the location of the artifacts. Unaware of the curse, the adventurer Ayumi searches for and finds the immensely valuable stones, releasing powerful forces in her body. Her goal and the player's is to discover what the secret of the curse is, free herself from it and at last defeat the darkness. Characters
Ayumi is a charismatic heroine and fearless treasure hunter. Now that the map with the Divine Artifacts has been found, she's going on the most thrilling and dangerous adventure of her life. As always, she prefers to work alone - partners just get in the way.
Jay is an adventurer like Ayumi. He rescues her from a deadly trap and attempts to support her in her fight against the Powers of Darkness. Jay is skillful in combat. He uses powerful explosions of light and his punches have to be seen to be believed.
|The Enlightened |
A powerful being who guards the Artifact of Darkness, as a Master of Magic, he uses spells to hurl opponents to the ground and metes out massive damage, but avoids close combat. The only way to defeat him is to use black magic and/or fire magic.
|The Dark One |
The Dark One is the guardian of the island - he conceals the Artifact of Light. Even the most powerful spells hardly affect him and only a strong blow with a blade can break through his defenses and affect him in any way.
X-Blades offers action-packed enjoyment in fantastic Hack-and-Slash style. Using various weapons, spells and tactics, the player must fight his/her way through many indoor and outdoor levels, killing hordes of monsters on the way. The story, exciting and rich in variety with numerous cutscenes not only motivates the player, it also cleverly interlinks the individual levels. Besides the ‘normal’ monsters, there are also "Monster Generators," which ceaselessly create new creatures (and of course powerful Boss opponents) for the game world. Hidden powerups and coins ensure that the player is rewarded for exploring a level. Some locations can only be reached by bold and daring leap/jump combinations. Player achieve ultimate success in the game through use of the extensive character development system for the heroine Ayumi. For example, experience points earned, must be converted to Skills. Powerups, such as combat techniques, magic, weapon enhancement and teleportation are available as well and the right mix will lead to success. Apart from that, the use of skills on the "good or bad side" also affects the finale. Depending on player actions, two different game endings await the heroine Ayumi. Key Game Features:
- Gripping fantasy story with spectacular landscapes and characters.
- Attractive anime-style heroine.
- Special Alternate “Demonic Power” mode.
- Innovative "Pistol Blades" for shooting projectiles and close-quarter fights.
- Over 40 indoor and outdoor level environments.
- Over 30 different types of enemies.
- Over 20 different types of magic in different classes.
- Strong Boss opponents in fantastic detail and designs.
- Hidden powerups animate players to explore the levels.
- Alternate endings depending upon the player’s behavior throughout the game.

-PLAYING THROUGH THE GAME TWICE!!!!

-Lame story line
-Bad voice acting
-LEVELS ARE THE SIZE OF MY ROOM!
Details on the above list:
Actually, I'll start off with the good aspects first. The levels look beautiful. The texturing is quite impressive. Aside from some "too bright" lighting on the outdoor levels, I really had no issues with this part of the game. I did like their level up system quite a bit. You basically kill a bunch of creatures and you get soul points then you spend these soul points to get upgrades. The upgrades were really cool. You can get fire burst, ice, earthquake, and lightning magic. You then bind these to a button on the controller and when you get enough rage from hitting your enemies you can execute these special magical attacks. I actually did like this mechanic throughout game play.Read more ›
It's a real throwback to the arcade style games of the early to late 1990's
It's real major crutch is the DOA style selling sex gimmick with main character Ayumi
Controls are somewhat easy to pick up and play
Your biggest problem is the camera it has this odd fixed camera angle
Graphics It's average not the best looking seventh generation title out there it's also not the worst looking
It does though have a very unique art style
Audio/Voice acting the score is forgettable and a bit cheap.
The sound f/x are average the actress who does the voice of Ayumi does a good job
The story/concept The story is nothing really new (There's a lot of Tomb Raider and other more popular titles this game copies)
the story is strange and make little to no sense
Overall fun: If you grew up during the arcade boom and loved games like Golden Ax,Streets of Rage, Final Fight you'll get a kick out of it
will you dump a hour into sitting and playing it i doubt it maybe 30min.
If you are a fan of the hack and slash style check it out just don't pay over $10.00 bucks on it
To be honest I haven't finished the game and I see no reason to. The graphics are nice and the voice work (while I don't like the characters attitude) is good. And there is a lot of hack&slash plus gun combat. Most of it however is really REALLY poorly done! Seriously, how do you screw up such a simple concept?!
Overall this game is not worth it. Don't waste your money.
So here is the good the combo system is amazing and very free flowing the developers of some of today's games needs to pay this game a visit to learn from it.
The story was weak for it's launch price but with it's drop in price it is now strong.
OK comes the ugly.
The Achievements are over all great with some that has no place because they are almost impossible for the casual gamer.
Graphics are very dated and borderlands comic book styled.
Some times the targeting tends to be a hair clueless but not to the point where it makes the game unplayable.
I recommend a game studio give this game the orange box treatment face lift the game to look more realistic and iron out the targeting some and implement the download content into the game story mode and add a costume editor for fun.

Neat premise and the environments are pretty, but the voice acting is almost bearable, though the gameplay is AWFUL. Read morePublished on February 8, 2014 by William Mceachern
This is an ok game a little strange to play for me. The playing handles kinda funny I only play it when I get bored of my other games I really do need to finish itPublished on December 8, 2013 by Vicki Cantu
This game is slightly broken but playable. It's a clone of devil may cry, tomb raider, and assorted other games. It's incredibly repetitive and pretty boring. Read morePublished on September 14, 2013 by N. Pawar
Fairly dull plot with a less than stellar ending (even if you don't buy any of the dark magic to get the 'good' ending). The game play was okay and entertained me for the duration. Read morePublished on September 14, 2013 by S. Gardner
I wondered at first if I would like this game. I played and didn't want to quit! It really is a great game. It has action galore for this type of game. I would buy it again!Published on September 11, 2013 by Dian L. Garrett
