Unfortunately, the good parts like the unlockable skills are obscured by generic enemy designs, monotonous combat and the most tedious boss battles I've seen. Enemies - and their annoying spawn pods - take way too long to kill unless you pause the action and remap the controls for the nth time, making combat more of a chore than a thrill. Worst of all, before the end credits roll, you have to trudge through the same uninspired levels twice.

X-Blade's guns-and-swords approach will remind many of Devil May Cry with an anime-stylized fantasy setting and magic spells, but repetitive missions and uninteresting characters render it a relatively tame experience. That X-Blades remains a decent title despite the lack of compelling missions and likeable characters is something of an accomplishment in itself, though not one we'd recommend advertising from the rooftops.

Despite a lead character that isn't the most likeable we've come across and some pretty repetitive gameplay, X-Blades still manages to be decent fun. This isn't enough to elevate it to must own status though, especially with plenty of better alternatives available on each platform. By no means a terrible effort, but X-Blades has too many problems to ignore.
