Bleeding Edge is an interesting combination of features taken from Overwatch, MOBAs and character action games, featuring a solid character roster, a good map selection and two plays modes that feel varied enough. The limited amount of content and the lack of a ranked mode, however, make it difficult to recommend the game as a stand-alone purchase as of now. As an Xbox Game Pass game, however, Bleeding Edge works much better, as players can wait for new content to drop without having to spend money just to get the game.

Bleeding Edge is currently a very raw game, a failed experiment and a free fantasy of a small group of people who for some reason were given the green light. A small number of main types of gaming activities, poor content and technical problems outweigh the bright characters with unique abilities, nice graphics and a pleasant soundtrack. However, the positive thing is that Bleeding Edge is unlikely to affect the really big next game from Ninja Theory, which we will all continue to wait for.

Bleeding Edge is a decent multiplayer action game lacking enought content to keep the players engaged in the long term.

Bleeding Edge is definitely worthy of your time – hopefully more so in the coming months when fresh content is added.

As it stands, Bleeding Edge appears to be a fascinating bet, but perhaps also a gamble on the part of Ninja Theory. Once again, the British developers did not lack the courage nor the appreciable desire to get out of the box, daring to propose something surprisingly far from their canons: the result is a strange online team fighting game with shades of MOBA, which if on the one hand it stands out for its pleasantly over-the-top character and for a satisfying depth of gameplay - but destined to emerge only by arming itself with patience and a close-knit team in tow - on the other it denotes manifest limits of content and a certain immaturity in the development. Who knows, maybe it would have made sense to postpone the release for a few months, presenting itself at launch with more substance (both in the essence of the gameplay and in everything that is exquisitely contour), or opt for a 100% free to play formula. In any case, the potential at Bleeding Edge certainly does not seem to be lacking, and indeed the basis for something encouraging can still be seen: it remains to be seen what the support for the title will be in the medium / long term, the only factor actually able to transform what today is a promise with a lot of personality in a truly noteworthy exclusive.

Bleeding Edge does not manage to motivate over long time and captivates with technical mistakes rather than deep gameplay.

The future certainly looks bright, but today the product needs more than just a couple of game modes and 11 characters.

For the first few hours Bleeding Edge is an absolute blast to play and well worth a look if you have Xbox Game Pass. But there's not enough depth to make it last long-term, at the moment.

Bleeding Edge is not what you would normally expect from Ninja Theory, and it's hard to imagine why they would choose to work on this title instead of focusing on their other, more important, IPs.

At its core, a unique brawler game that is held back from reaching its full potential by repetitive gameplay and a lack of features that in 2020 should absolutely be standard, at launch, for any game trying to squeeze into the crowded multiplayer game market

Bleeding Edge is a fun game, but one that lacks any real content and depth to keep players interested for the long-term. You'll be entertained for a few hours, for sure, but if you're looking for a multiplayer experience to invest in over the coming months, you might want to look elsewhere.

Hopefully, little tweaks like these – ones identified and eventually fixed by the likes of Overwatch – find their way into Bleeding Edge sooner than not.

Bleeding Edge has a ton of potential, largely thanks to its fun and well-designed combat, colorful style and characters, and nicely-crafted levels and goals that emphasize the need for teamwork and strategy.

Bleeding Edge is a polished team-based brawler. Ninja Theory took on user feedback from the betas to improve gameplay and, with more content already announced, Bleeding Edge looks to have enough depth to pour countless hours into.

With memorable characters and fast-paced combat, Ninja Theory's new game Bleeding Edge is a promising new entry in its genre. The only question is: will it hold up against the fierce competition, or fall short of the mark set by others?

Bleeding Edge's many interesting ideas and fantastic characters are overpowered by a frustrating combo-laden gameplay loop.

Melee weapon combat system feels good and intense. Beside that, the number of heroes makes the game relatively content light, and the PvP matchmaking is problomatic and frustrating.

Bleeding Edge has a lot of charm and fun to offer, but doesn't do a great job making a case for itself over other games in the genre; which may hurt it in the long run.
