Ken McKown writes: Finding someone who played the original X-Blades is a challenge; almost as large a challenge as finding someone who really enjoyed it. I qualify in both of those categories. I played through the original game, and while it had some serious issues, I did enjoy my time with it. Fast forward and Konami is following up X-Blades with a title that you wouldn’t know it was a sequel, unless I told you. Funny enough, the game is also what we call a “stealth release,” so the fact that you even know it exists is even more impressive.
