Bladed Fury doesn't break any new ground, but it's got its 2D hack and slash fundamentals down to a science. Its beautiful hand-drawn art style and great enemy designs bring its mythological rendition of ancient China to life, even when its story fails to.

If you’re really in a pinch, you won’t hate it. Bladed Fury is short, affordable, and a very cool art show with questionable fan service.

Bladed Fury is a decent side-scrolling action game, but the content is not full enough, while the action system needs more improvements too. However, considering the low price and the product orientation, those defects are acceptable.
