X blades was a pretty okay game. I actually enjoyed playing it but I had my frustrated moments in the game.
The graphics were pretty nice, and Ayumi herself was appealing to the player's eye. The effects and the environment was also astonishing.
The battle system and mechanism where good enough, but slightly difficult as it was easy to get hit during the heat of a battle.
I was not too fond about the artifact upgrade system. finding 3 pieces to upgrade your battle was great, but I did not like the fact that you could only have a maximum lvl of 3 when there were more artifacts out there to find.
The music in the game was something I really liked. They did a good job on finding the right elements suitable for the moments in the game.
The story is pretty poor, and the visual acting of the infants were pretty bad.
In conclusion, this game is something I would recommend to you if you love hack n' slash and anime.
