Shonen Jumps Bleach is good excercise if you get deep into it. I mean for real bleach is a good series. The game takes sword fighting to the next level. Its multi player so u can beat your friends without realy hurting them (unless you get angry and chuck the wii-mote at there head) there is about 20+ charecters ranging from Ichigo Kurosaki to espadas #1 Ulquiorra Schiffer. this is my favorite Wii game.

Being a big fan of the series, I expected a lot from a game carrying the Bleach name. The game has a few good points. Well...one good point, and that is that the character designs are exceptionally good. I almost drooled when I saw Kenpachi taking off his eyepatch for the first time, it looked that cool. However, the good graphics can't hide the fact that this game isn't any fun to play. Every fighter has the same exact moves, which is a superfast combo of basic punches and strikes which basically mean each player just swinging recklessly until your 'Bankai Meter' fills up and your character enters into a 'Super Mode.' Again, this game is very good-looking, but I only played about five matches with my brothers before putting the game back into it's package and sending it straight back to my mailbox. I rate it 3/10, but only because it looked so darned pretty at first.

I received emails from Nintendo telling me about this brand new game and ground breaking control system. I'm 29 (and have a life) so I had never heard of the Bleach anime and manga series, so obviously, I'm not the target market for this game, but I saw a still from Bankai mode and it looked pretty cool.
But in actual usage the control system is anything but ground breaking. It straight up sucks. It is the Wii equivalent of button mashing, Remote flailing! Just shake that thing holding A, shake that thing holding B! Shake the nunchuck! Shake the remote again! And repeat, ad nauseam.
Unless you love the anime or manga, this game offers nothing of interest, beware.
