Excerpt: Bizarrific? No, that’s not the word. Strangejoyable? Maybe. It’s truly difficult to pin down a game as unique in character, level, and gameplay design as Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition , so only imaginary words can do it justice.
Excerpt: Zeno Clash is so aggressively bizarre that when you call it “imaginative,” you’re in danger of giving its creators more credit than they deserve. So much of what’s here strikes me as weirdness for the sake of weirdness that the game’s most beautiful or striking moments, of which there are many, may...
Conclusion: Overall it was a nice experience and time killer which some improvable aspects but still not as bad as a lot of other reviews i read made it. SCORE 2,5/5 as there is a lot of nice ideas but also a lot of improvable aspects.
Excerpt: I've never taken hallucinogenic drugs, but I'd imagine the results of doing so would be largely similar to playing Zeno Clash. ACE Team's first-person brawler is delirious combination of bizarre character models, unpronounceable names and a narrative that was (probably) conjured up during an intense...
Excerpt: Many video games on the market are developed with great intentions. I often envision large board room meetings with excited developers making their pitch to have certain elements included in their game. After the pitches are delivered everyone nods in agreement convinced they have a winner.
Excerpt: We can't have been the only ones to have concerns about Southpeak's X-Blades. The central focus has always appeared to be the main female character's lack of clothing. Perhaps it's just us being cynical, but there's always been a big question mark over the actual gameplay and presentation.
Excerpt: The basic plot of good vs. evil can go way beyond the limit of the imagination if put into the right hands. Sadly this idea was placed into the hands of Gaijin with the disappointing result of X-Blades. To be frank it’s not the worst game out there, but certainly not one of the best either.
X-Blades Xbox360 Review – Cute chick kills monsters while wearing a thong
4 May 2009
Conclusion: Seriously though X-Blades isn’t worth your money at full cost, might be worth a rental for some mindless hack and slash fun, but that’s about it. X-Blades just can’t compete with the games it tried to copy, it seems to try to be creative but fails miserably at it, especially when you blatantly copy...
Pros: Cute girl running around in a thong
Cons: Seems to copy many other games, Repetitiveness that gets old quickly, Gameplay is not that great, Funky camera angles that can results in death, Game just gets old quickly, Mindless and continuous hack and slash
Summary: The heroine of X-Blades, Ayumi, is a blonde petite athletic treasure hunter that has very few other traits to her character than the ones I just used. Not only is the heroine of X-Blades shallow but every single aspect of this hack and slash looks good on the surface but doesn’t add any depth...
