Team Up. Cause Chaos. Grab your team and tear it up in Bleeding Edge, an electrifying online brawler where every fighter comes mechanically enhanced for mayhem.
Choose your fighter from a diverse cast of colourful characters from the edges of society: burn rubber as bold and beautiful Buttercup with her detachable saw blade arms, wreak havoc as Black-Metal rocker Niđhöggr with his electrifying guitar solos or slash up the streets as Daemon, New York’s most wanted assassin.
Bleeding Edge is also available on XBox One.
Bleeding Edge brings refreshments to the hero-shooter genre, with complex gameplay, variability in play-styles and crazy characters. Unfortunately, the content offered here is not much, and Ninja Theory should work on this aspect in the future.
Bleeding Edge is a good hero brawler with a stunning character design and a unique action style system. Unfortunately, the lack of content and an unclear road map are two marks of a predictable falling down.
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 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, though, Bleeding Edge works much better, as players can keep playing while waiting for new content to drop without having to purchase the game right away.
This results in jousts which are pleasant at first but which lose their panache far too quickly due to a lack of depth. Jousts that its skinny roster will unfortunately have a hard time boosting.
If Bleeding Edge can hold up and the developers regularly deliver game content, it could be a varied, good game. Until then, there is still a lot to do.
Principally entertaining, yet unbalanced and in the long run monotonous team action.
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.
