The gameplay was "OK", but the storyline and the rest was disapointing. I will never play this game again, Story line had no real follow through, although i already know what happens from the series this game had no good detail. DONT GET THIS GAME!

Those expecting a dynamic representation of the Bleach Story line will be disappointed. The story is told trough uninspired narrations at the beginning of every stage without so much as a still frame from the show. What little cut-scenes are available amount to short instances where two characters stand and exchange one or two lines of dialogue. The game does very little to explain the situation to those who have not seen the television show and doesn't offer much in terms of fan service.
This game adapts the Dynasty Warriors play style and does nothing special with it. The amount of enemies on screen is not what you would expect from a game like this. The game tries to reward you for a high combo counts; but you'll find that you'll normally run out of enemies to defeat before hitting a high combo number. All characters in the game are represented in their strongest form, don't expect to find any kind of transformation mechanic.
The game does a good job of recreating the animated look that Bleach is popular for; colors are vibrant and the special move animations are nice to look at. Where the game falls short is the soundtrack. Gone is the shows iconic soundtrack, what were left with is a generic set of hard rock themes.
If your a fan of Dynasty Warriors game-play its worth an hour or two of your time; but there are better games to choose from. If you need to scratch that hack and slash itch; Find yourself a copy of Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes 3 or One Piece Musou if your lucky. If you want a dynamic anime experience pick up one of the Ninja Storm games. Everyone else stay away from this game.
