X-Blades is a decent, albeit it overpriced, title that is one of the better games to come out of Russia since Pathologic. While the character and monster designs are a bit weak, the backgrounds are quite nice and the soundtrack is outstanding, even if it more fitting for a Cybergoth or Trance club. The bottom line is that X-Blades is a no frills button mashing hack n' slash, and you find it to be a run of the mill title from this genre with a few new twists.
When the price drops down to a more respectable level, it just may find an appreciative audience. For now though, there are better, cheaper games available to you sporting similar gameplay, so you may want to stick with those.
