Blinx: The Time Sweeper Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Blinx is without a doubt one of the most creative titles in recent times, and it really pushes the Xbox hardware by taking advantage of the hard drive like no other title to date. This alone makes Blinx a very important title whether you like it or not because it will give developers a look at how to start utilizing the power of the Xbox in ways they might never have realized before.

  • Excerpt: Microsoft has released its entry in the mascot wars, an off-beat platform title called Blinx: The Time Sweeper. Blinx is one cool cat and has the ability to suck up objects and spit them back at enemies. Big Deal, but the really cool things is that Blinx can collect time crystals and shift time either backwards or forward, pause the action or slow things down with slow-motion. This is not something you see everyday making this a unique title.

  • Excerpt: Late in 2002, the Xbox was blessed with a decent platform game called Blinx: The Time Sweeper . Blinx , with his maniacal grin, had attracted the attention of gamers around the world with his unique time-control abilities. The game has finally been unleashed, and Xbox owners are left with a fine gaming experience that takes the traditional platform genre and expands upon it.

  • Excerpt: Mascots sell systems, and no genre of game creates easily identifiable mascots like the tried-and-true platformer. Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog has only ventured onto the GameCube so far this generation, and Nintendo's roster also includes Mario, the pudgy plumber that defined what a platformer is in the first place.

The Armchair Empire
14 November 2002
  • Conclusion: accident in 7,347 years. But now there’s a group of miscreants who wish to steal time and sell it to greedy other-dimensions. One of the worlds is so affected by the pilfering of time that the Time Factory decides there is no other choice than to let it go unstable and vanish. But Blinx decides he’s willing to give it one more try to regain a steady time flow once again while taking down the band of time thieves.

  • Summary: Go out and buy Blinx now. Hell, if you don't like it all you gotta do is hit the good ol' rewind button and you're back at the store, right?

  • Excerpt: Sega's Virtua Fighter earned a place in the Smithsonian for being the first 3-D video game. While Microsoft's Blinx is unlikely to follow suit, it is an innovative platform game that gives Xbox gamers pause.

Blinx: The Time Sweeper – Review

GameCritics.com
4 July 2001
  • Excerpt: Much like the stagnation of fighting games to which fellow GameCritics.com writer Brad Gallaway alluded in his recent review of Tekken 4 , platform games have evolved little since Nintendos Super Mario 64 revitalized the genre in 1996. Most platformers are still stuck with the same ideas of collecting limitless items, defeating monsters in cartoon-like ways and exploring massive 3D worlds attempting to unearth every last secret the game has to offer.

Game Vortex

  • Excerpt: 'Only on Xbox' If you go through your game collection, you're likely to find at least one game that sports this logo. While it may come off as a rather flashy way to denote exclusivity, on Blinx this moniker becomes much more. Despite what many Xbox detractors may say, Blinx really is a game that can only be done on the Xbox due to its unique use of the Xbox's internal hard drive. Blinx is a graphical powerhouse.

Blinx: The Time Sweeper

Active Network
2 May 2004
  • Summary: "The sound department doesn’t quite live up to Blinx’s graphical flair. There are voice-overs during the intro movie, but there is no speech or dialogue during the actual game" "Blinx is a platform game, the idea of the game is to defeat all of the “Time Monsters” that have taken over various areas of the game"
  • Pros: Great Graphics, Ok Sound, Nice innovation
  • Cons: Repeats too much
