From one Bleach and anime fan to another, finally we get what we want and that is a US release of Bleach. Now its the first and there were a few small issues but it doesn't take anything too much from the game.
Pros: Graphically looks like the anime and similar texture to that of Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 which is a positive look. Japanese voice acting is exactly what its suppose to be. Character availability is exact pertaining to this arc in the story. The techniques and abilities of each character is closely related to what they use in the anime. Mission mode and soul attack is interesting in which you can use any character and beat your best score. The battle system is similar to Dynasty Warriors which is fine.
Cons: The story mode skips important fight scenes that are relative to the story which makes this mode short. Characters are already in their main forms example (Ichigo is already in bankai form or Grimmjow is already in his resurrection form). Yes, ignition allows you to use their strongest abilities in that form but it takes away from the initial release of a zanpaktou which is what we live for, not everyone is like this but the majority are.
All in all, its still a good Bleach game to start off with. Hopefully we see more but with improvements. Like DLC or online ability.

I was a fan of this manga and anime for a while and kind of fell out during the Bount saga, however this game makes me miss it and I believe that I will be going back to it soon. Most of the "story requires some understanding of the series, that being said if you have never played it and like hack and slash games(N3, dynasty warriors) this one is great. If you are a fan of the series this game is great, and if you want a solid anime... well try Full metal alchemist. But as odd as this series is and as many times as you may question some of the things that are happening this game is great in almost every way, including a rather deep level up system. Play this game it is very good
