Weak

Arduous

Let me preface this little review by saying that I really wanted to like this game. Being a fan of the Guilty Gear series, I was eager to play its spiritual successor. I've played it before on a friend's PS3 and I loved it, so I thought I'd try it for the 360, since I don't own a PS3 myself. The controls just do not work for the 360. Maybe its because my controllers are worn, but it's almost impossible to get the prescision needed for most special attacks down. I continuously waggle and rotate my joysticks to get response from Ragna or Carl Clover, and I get nothing but my butt handed to me on a silver platter. The characters are all varied and interesting, and the story is interesting, though I question its delivery occasionally, but the annoying control issues just kill this version for me.

This game is really fun. At first, it feels a little strange, but once you get used to it, it is really fun. The animations look amazing. They were really well drawn.

The worst part of the game is the story mode. While the fighting is fun, there is a bunch of text between fights that will drive you bananas.

The achievements are hard and most of them are secret. Achievement Junkies stay away. Fighting fans, Rent!

This game was borish at best, I could have simply repeatedly pressed (a) and got through 75% of the game! You do not get to choose where you go or simply control your charaters movement except in battles? so I guess its good for beginners, but if you know your way around your remote, or simply know how to turn your system on, you will be bored to tears!
