Story
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 from 'X-Blades' Ayumi
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 from 'X-Blades' Jay
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 from 'X-Blades' 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 from 'X-Blades' 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.

Gameplay
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 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy Semi fun hack n slash October 26, 2012
By Suki
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
X-Blades was ok. It was semi entertaining for me, and the hack and slash type game play was kinda fun. Im dissapointed in how short the game is, considering for me it was beat in only 7 hours. I would rate it a lil higher would it have been a longer game. Only other complaint i have is it was a little too linear in the game play. Had there been some side story like optional missions or something of the effect that too would have caused me to be more optimistic about the game. Overall it was decent if youre into cheesy humor kind of games

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Game January 5, 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Bought this quite awhile ago. Have beaten it a few times. Its the only game I've ever gotten every achievement for and none of them are insanely difficult or mindbendingly hard to aquire. Its a bit dated now but I still enjoy it once in awhile.

Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This was South Peak's last chance with me. After the travesty that was Two Worlds I was skeptical of even this purchase. I will admit the cover caught my attention. While not the best illustration in existence, the concept of playing a scantily clad female wielding two devastating gun blades heavily appeals to me. So, with some reservations, I made my purchase. I figured it was a hack and slash, a very simplistic game concept, so how could South Peak really screw that up. Oh my, let me tell you how!

Pros:
+Beautiful levels
+Scantily clad female with dual wielding gunblades
+Excellent magical abilities
+Awesome combos
+Well developed booklet
+Leveling up mechanic is interesting
Cons:
-PLAYING THROUGH THE GAME TWICE!!!!
-Levels are the size of my room
-Bosses are really easy to beat
-Items are incredibly easy to locate (because there is only one room!)
-Ayumi's in game figure looks weird
-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.

2.0 out of 5 stars How do you screw this up?! February 17, 2014
By Jarin
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Wow. Just wow. This is about the most underwhelming hack&slash I've ever played. Every enemy just rushed the character with 0 strategy, the camera suddenly becomes a big problem, and you can't even tell if your slashes/shots are hitting the target half the time! It's like the character is constantly encircled by enemies and the best thing to do mostly is stand in one place and continually hit the main attack button! That's not good gameplay! The shooting is weak and mostly ineffective, the special attacks don't always work, and the main character isn't even likeable! She's voiced by Tara Strong whom I am a big fan of which makes it all the more frustrating!
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars X-crap February 8, 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Neat premise and the environments are pretty, but the voice acting is almost bearable, though the gameplay is AWFUL. The graphics are nice, as is the heroine, but staring at a thong-clad booty for the entire duration gets real old, real fast. Plenty of skills and customization, which shows at least a little thought was put into this game, but there are far better hack'n slash games around so don't bother with this overly polished turd.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good game made great? November 20, 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
With the asking price of X-Blades it is now a worth while buy.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dirt cheap and plays like dirt! September 14, 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
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. The graphics and character design (of the enemies) are actually really well done for what was probably a low budget game (kudos to the developers). I'm not sure why the main (playable) character is wearing a thong while she's treasure hunting though. The gameplay is kind of stiff (and that's not a double entendre); might be a framerate issue or a character animation issue.

However, it is dirt cheap both new and used. It's not exactly a bad game but it's not exactly a good game either. Would I pay 7 bucks new for it? Probably. I paid around 2.50 used disk only and I don't feel ripped off. I've payed more for far worse.
