Honest Gamers writes: "This type of game is going to be naturally repetitive, but X-Blades takes it to a disappointing degree. Surely, everyone involved in its production would love for Ayumi to become the new empress of adventuring. Their press releases talk-up the sexy art style, and emphasize how both action and anime fans will slobber over her figure and fighting moves. And no doubt, some people will be drawn to her brash attitude. But the girl can only take the game so far, and she's been outfitted in a stagnant ensemble. The tailors of this mediocre enterprise should see the reality better than anyone; Ayumi may have style, but she's not wearing any clothes".
