I love the anime series and was kind of sad when I watched the last episode. I decided to get to this as a reminder of anime. It is basically Dynasty Warriors in Bleach universe. Totally work btw. Combat was nice, ascetics were nice and in general the game felt good. I was thinking about giving it a 9 at the time.
Then Grimjaw fight came and it ended in under a minute. I am sorry but what the fudge? The fight in anime lasted over 3 episodes, if I remember correctly. This was supposed to be an epic fight and I basically 2 shotted him. After that I basically wanted to put down the game but decided to try Kenpachi on hard. The boss was against number 5, I think and he killed me. He 1 shotted me. At that point, I put the game back in the sleeve and mailed it back.
The whole point of anime was epic battles and this is something the game did not capture.
It has some flash and flare to the fighting part of the game. There is only three things to do and take 50+ hours of grinding if you want to beat the game fully. Very fun to finish leveling one character but then a bit tedious to do multiple times.
Its like the type of game that you keep for a long time and play every so often but with a new character so its fun again. Not the type to sit there to play through it over and over again.
