It’s not an experience I can recommend easily. Maybe if they worked on it, really gave it the old spit, shine, and polish and a handful more game modes, I would consider coming back. But as it stands now, it’s just not worth it.

Bleeding Edge has almost nothing to offer. What potential it has in it is woefully stuck in a product that is so meagre and void of content. It is like taking a single slice of cheese, and trying to cover an entire pizza pie; there just not enough here to make this work passed a few hours, and that's all. There are not enough modes, not enough interest in the community to keep it going, and the combat is way too simplistic for high level play.

Bleeding Edge doesn’t really do much right. In a game where the melee combat is supposed to be its bread and butter, Bleeding Edge’s is clunky and unsatisfying. With only two game modes at the time of this review, it doesn’t leave a lot of room for variety between each match and you’ll quickly find yourself in a cycle of rinsing and repeating until you’re left wanting more and not being offered anything else.

Bleeding Edge has one major mistake. It tries to be in the spotlight so badly, that it overlooks the fact, that this show already has its own stars. Even though concept of heroes shooters managed to compile in the good-looking way, Bleeding Edge proves, that good concept and potencial isn't enought without a good use. Heroes are interesting compliation of everything we've seen and maps are well-down spectacle. Gameplay is unfortunately chaos, specially without proper teammates, who would jump into crazy arenas alongside with you. Bleeding Edge is one huge gathering of great but also drained ideas bonded together with poor glue, which hold the game barely together.

Bleeding Edge puts its own spin on the competitive multiplayer formula, but fails to stand out even with its fun action-packed gameplay.

Bleeding Edge is a completely average title, lacking any new ideas. The only things it has going for it are the visuals and combat, but those won't keep you playing for too long.

Bleeding Edge may be free for Game Pass subscribers but in no way is that an incentive to play it. I genuinely can’t express how irate and bored it made me feel. Cool character designs and a nifty loadout feature are not enough to keep me hanging onto this game. It’s infuriating to play, provides very little gratification and there are far better options.

Bleeding Edge wastes its limitless potential with bare bones content and repetitive gameplay.

Bleeding Edge suffers from poor content and lack of depth. But the worst thing — it is just no fun.

Overall I’m coming away from Bleeding Edge pretty disappointed.

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

Bleeding Edge? More like Painfully Dull.

Bleeding Edge has some really good ideas, but not enough content or progression to back them up. It's a solid pick for a few game nights with your pals if you all have Game Pass, but it still needs some time to develop into a true competitor.

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

Bleeding Edge's characters are cool, but the combat is too shallow to hold attention for long.

Even if you like the character designs or core gameplay, there just isn’t enough in the game to keep most people playing long term. You can already see this from the Steam numbers. I suspect that Bleeding Edge will soon become 2020’s LawBreakers, Gigantic, or Battleborn at this rate.

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 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 misses its mark, but there's a spark inside this game worth keeping your eye on.

The attention to detail, great soundtrack, and largely well-designed characters belie a game that is clearly loved by those that worked on it, but the crippling lack of depth in every area of Bleeding Edge has made what should have been an excellent game a mediocre one instead. I hope Ninja Theory is given the opportunity to expand on the game, but right now Bleeding Edge is fun but forgettable filler.
