The hand to hand combat is horrible because the player has to right analog stick instead of buttons. The controls seem off, almost as if the developers didn't test the game.Basically, just rent Blade if you must play the game. Don't Buy it!!!!!!

here are some other reviews

All the money that goes to obtaining a movie license for a video game is money that isn't spent on making the game fun.

If you want vampire slaying fun on the xbox, Buffy is the way to go. Disappointing news on Blade, I'm gonna have to rent it and check it out though.

Yes I've played it for a while and the controls DO SUCK. first of all they don't give you enough ammo and hand-to-hand combat with the right analog stick is the dumbest thing ever often wanting to punch someone in the face instead im kicking thin air from behind.
